Piper De Young

Piper is a makeup artist and co-founder of two community driven events for hairstylist and makeup artist - @emberretreat + @blendgatherings. She started her career behind the counter with philosophy and furthered her artistry skills as a makeup artist for MAC. She later took a leap of faith and established herself as a freelance makeup artist. Piper also has a background in Marketing and Graphic Design - both of which have shaped her into a social media and beauty lover with a sharp eye for trending design. She enjoys connecting with small creative businesses/entrepreneurs looking to style their brand identity and showcase their work while effectively engaging with their audience.


Megan Bradley

Megan is the owner of Wink Lash Studio in Newport Beach, California! She started practicing the art of eyelash extensions more than 10 years ago when they first hit the U.S. by storm in 2004. Megan has been published in several magazines including making the cover of LA Times at the ripe age of 17! Being a pioneer of the newfound eyelash industry gave Megan the ability to advance her knowledge in a variety of continually evolving products, and to stay on top of any new lash trends. By early 2006 after journeying to several well established lash studios where she trained other lash artists, Megan opened her own business Wink Lash Studio!

Wink Lash Studio first opened its doors in August of 2011. After only a few short months they became the number one rated lash salon in Newport Beach. Megans strives to keep herself and her team up to date on new trends and education. She’s spent time going as far as Italy to expand her knowledge, ensuring her clients get the best quality product and results. Through Megan’s dedication to the lash industry she also provides private and advanced training as well as manufactures and sells some of her own lash extensions supplies! 


Alexsis Scaletti

Alexsis Scaletti, know as Alexsis Mae on Youtube, is a hairstylist, mom, and new salon owner. She started her journey by giving her clients a place to learn how to style their hair through videos, which grew to also teach other hairstylists how to do color makeovers through online video education. Offering a place for the regular girls to learn how to have gorgeous hair at home, and a spot for their stylist to learn how to give them an amazing experience behind the chair! Which lead into traveling around the states getting into salons with the stylists that watch her videos teaching education in person!

Alexsis Mae has opened up her life up by sharing her walk through becoming a mom, giving a real perspective to her community about real life and the things moms deal with in an open environment. You can own a business and be a mom, there’s something incredibly inspiring about having children!

Whether its hair or baby diapers, Alexsis Mae has dedicated her reach to lifting up others while helping and inspiring her community with each avenue of her life! She believes in dreaming big and lifting others up along the way.

Amanda Riley


“When planning Taking Ownership all I could think about was myself and I’ll tell you why! Over a year ago I went booth rental/independent and was afforded the luxury of Taking Ownership over my business! When I was making moves I quickly realized there really wasn’t any reading material out there giving me step by step instructions on how to go booth rental, a blog, a book, a newspaper article or anything! So if you want to learn about going booth rental come to Taking Ownership!” -Amanda

Amanda Riley has been a hairstylist since 2008. After receiving her license in Colorado, she trained as an apprentice at The Parlour, a high-end salon in Denver. During her 6 years there, she worked on the bridal and photo teams in addition to her regular services. Moving to Los Angeles in 2015 has brought many new opportunities to Amanda including training to become a Wella Master Color Expert in February 2016.  Amanda works as an independent stylist at The Harbor!

Amanda’s specialty is color, due to her advanced training and certification. She enjoys working with blondes, balayages and copper colors! You'll find more of her work and day to day life on @amandarileyhairstylist.

Some of Sarah’s main clients include Zooey Deschanel, Sugar Ray Leonard, and Jasmin Savoy Brown. She is constantly striving to perfect her skills while being inspired by fellow artists in the makeup industry. Sarah’s special talent is keeping her client's natural beauty highlighted using clean, natural products. Sarah believes make up is an art form that takes place on a living canvas and there is nothing better than creating magic with a team and seeing that translate on camera. We are so excited to hear all Sarah has to share about her journey of freelancing and more about proper etiquette on set, booking or billing a client and all her marketing tips & tricks!
