Meet Ilana

After many years of competitive dance, I quickly learned that I enjoyed applying makeup and styling hair more than I liked performing. This miraculous realization came to me while sitting in the mirror and getting ready for a competition. That was the day I decided I no longer wanted to be a dancer, but instead a cosmetologist.

 

I have always been incredibly motivated to achieve any goal that I set for myself. I was able to finish high school a year early before starting cosmetology school at the College of DuPage. Following the fast track, I was determined to finish at COD and graduated with an Associates of Applied Sciences in Cosmetology. 

 

While attending COD, I threw myself into the world of makeup and hair. I watched countless YouTube tutorials to improve my skills and learn new techniques. People from my high school would come to me for makeovers for school dances, parties, and other special occasions. I was starting to build locally, and those clients are still with me to this day. Without them, I wouldn’t be where I am today as a makeup artist or a stylist. 

 

I started to work for Morphe in 2018 and was able to receive countless hours of makeup and brush training. After my position at Morphe, I transitioned into working as a certified makeup artist at Sephora. I performed makeup applications for a variety of events, holidays, and occasions. I am currently an apprentice at Salon Glow and have been constantly growing my skillset and hair knowledge through their assisting program.   

 

I also began studying at DePaul University to obtain a Bachelors’s in Business Management with a minor in Community Service Studies. I value working within the community and do a lot of volunteer work in my free time. 

 

My goal is to build a one on one connection with every client that sits in my chair. I want your trip to the salon to be unforgettable! I value not only making people look beautiful, but feel beautiful. I truly believe that beauty comes from within. I hope to inspire my clients to find beauty within themselves while providing exceptional services!
