Hello I'm Jena!

HELLO, I'M JENA!

It all started when…

As owner and founder of Mrs.Cookie Beauty I wanted a chance to inspire women in my community to feel like their most gorgeous selves. I have been in love with all things dress up and beauty since a young age. Growing up in the theater world helped me learn how to create a character.  When we put on our makeup and get dolled up, we are still us-yet we become something more. You become the person you want the world to see! "The Vintage vixen" "The Blushing Bride" "The sultry siren" We are only limited by our imagination.  That is the power of hair and makeup. Makeup should never be a mask to hide behind. Here at Mrs.Cookie it is our job to be your back stage crew, doing everything in our power to help you walk out into that spotlight ready for your big debut!

I love…

Everything from the silver screen era! The elegant vintage glam style gone to yesteryear. I highly enjoy injecting elements of the romantic sultry look that was the 40's and 50's into today's styles.  My personal mantra is "Vintage with a modern twist"   We see many examples of this in today's popular bridal and boudoir looks.  If you are looking for that classic touch for your next special occasion Mrs.Cookie Beauty has you covered! You don't have to rock full blown Betty bangs or Liberty curls to own your own vintage glam, there is something for everyone.

Experience & Credentials....

I am a fully licensed Cosmetologist and have worked in Washington State for 10 years.  I have had extensive color theory training with MATRIX and Paul Mitchell.  I have specialized in color correction in a salon environment for 6 years before taking on and managing a salon of my own. Though I still love hair color I found that I was being drawn more and more out of the salon and on location, getting back to my roots of event hair and makeup.

I began doing weddings and events as an amateur freelance to help pay for beauty school and fell in love with it. When I met my husband who is the owner and operator of STCimagery  in 2013 we began working together on weddings and engagements all over the North West.  I have since then undergone continued education for my makeup artistry through Cedar's academy of makeup artistry and have added FX makeup and Airbrush to my services.  I currently work as a freelance hair and makeup artist in the Portland Metro area. I am able to offer onsite or in studio services for all your special occasion needs!
