Meet Torrance’s Top Hair & Makeup Professional: Hafsa Jilani

Two weeks ago, Sandra, the receptionist in our office had a hot date and needed to get her hair and makeup done, but she also wanted to buy a new dress – so she made the rounds asking some of us what we thought she should do: buy the new dress or get her hair and makeup done?  The suggestions were pretty creative – from renting a dress on Rent the Runway to using youtube tutorials and doing hair and makeup at home (shout out to our girl, youtube sensation Michelle Phan).

Then someone mentioned how hard it is to find good, affordable hair and makeup professionals online.  At first we thought maybe we just hadn’t discovered a good source yet, but after spending the entire afternoon looking for quality, affordable beauty professionals we gave up.  The next morning we assembled in the conference room and started mapping out a strategy to create the best beauty professional guide Los Angeles has ever seen.  First we had to decide on the evaluation criteria, then we had to develop a semi-scientific method of finding and ranking the professionals. As a team we decided on a multi-factor approach that gave the most weight to the following factors: quality of work, reputation, affordability.   After researching thousands of beauty professionals from all over the city and spending scores of hours debating the merits of various professionals we’ve built a list of the best options in LA.  We will introduce many of these talented professionals to you over the next few months.

Today we’d like to introduce you to Hafsa Jilani.

Hafsa has years of experience in hairstyling, makeup artistry and henna design. Many clients love that she offers harder to find services such as airbrush makeup, special effects and costume makeup and henna tattoos. For large gatherings such as bridal showers, birthdays, and graduation parities Hafsa, the truly innovate entrepreneur, offers henna stations and braid bars to make those events memorable for guests.  We asked her about her personal journey and she shared the following:

I attended Makeup Designory in Burbank, there I learned beauty makeup, hairstyling, and special effects makeup. I learned everything I needed to know about the industry from the teachers that had worked in the top movies, television, and magazines themselves. It was a great experience. Since then I have been freelancing doing hair and makeup., I primarily do bridal, prom, and special occasion makeup. I often do makeup for special events such as Pre Grammy parties, Emmys red carpet, the UNICEF ball.
