I teach correct and enhancing makeup techniques according to clients skin tone, facial shape, and facial features. I use the Seasonal Color Analysis approach to determine what skin tone the client is, either cool or warm. I have an extensive beauty field background. Early in my adulthood, I became a licensed cosmetologist in Minnesota. I have also been active as a Beauty Consultant almost all of my adult years with two different cosmetic companies. I love working with women and encouraging them to look and feel their very best, which boosts their self-esteem and self-confidence.

Carolyn has and is exactly what I was looking for in a voice coach. Like me, her interests in the performing arts are broad. I felt both excited and comfortable with her. She is professional and easy to talk to. I can sense strongly that Carolyn is full of love and compassion. I am so excited for the next lesson! Here's to the new horizon and everything in between! :) Thank you Carolyn for reassuring me that my decision to switch careers was a wise decision indeed. Dance forward.

Fashion Design (with Freehand skills) is the art of sketching, drafting, cutting and making a garment to fit any body size without the need for a commercial pattern.

In freehand drafting, specific measurements are taken directly from the body and drafted on muslin or on the fashion fabric. Seam allowances and other intakes, depending on the style, are added to these measurements before cutting. After all pieces have been cut, various foundational sewing skills which must be acquired prior to attempting freehand sewing, are applied step-by-step in completing the garment. This is similar to Pattern Making and Construction.

** You can register for 10hrs (600mins) 2hrs a week for 5weeks and make custom clothes.

I am a fashion designer/instructor and former social worker. I am very patient with students and passionate about sewing. I get excited watching students build skills gradually from basic through advanced level techniques. Also, I am one of the few teachers in the country who teaches the exclu

Little or no experience you will definetly learn the skills you need to perform on various types of hair cuts. For those already experienced in cutting, you will learn new innovating and creative techniques to better critique your skills. It was a great experience to be taught by a very experienced teacher.

Nikisha is a great instructor and knows her stuff when it comes to makeup and skincare. I learned some new tips that I've been putting into practice which has elevated my makeup game! There were some scheduling conflicts which she cleared up quickly and was much appreciated. I definitely recommend reaching out to Nikisha for a makeup lesson if you haven't already!
Aisha
I had a good lesson with Nikisha, she is professional and friendly at the same time. I had most of my questions answered, she provided support before and after the lesson as well.
Kassandra Robinson
Nikisha provided makeup lessons to my 12 year old daughter once a week. She was very loving, kind, and patient with my daughter and flexible with our schedules. What I appreciate most is that she met my daughter on her skill level and then slowly built her up. Not only did she teach my daughter how to apply makeup, but she also taught her the importance of cleaning her face before and after applying makeup. My daughter enjoyed the lessons so much, I signed her up for additional lessons. I highly recommend Nikisha.
