“When I grow up,” I tell her, “I too will go to faraway places and come home to live by the sea.”
“That is all very well, little Alice,” says my aunt, “but there is a third thing you must do.”
“What is that?” I ask.
“You must do something to make the world more beautiful.”
- Miss Rumphius, by Barbara Cooney
about lindsay j.
my mom used to read Miss Rumphius to me as a kid, and it still remains one of my favorite books. i've been inspired since opening its pages to do something to make the world more beautiful, too.
i love color, creating, adventuring, and people. those things, combined with my growing up around strong, confident, women - whom I'm convinced all have sparkle and glitter running through their blood - are the foundations of who i am as an artist. i am self-taught, and always growing and learning. my experiences as an actor, model, and stylist set me apart in creating tailored, on-trend looks for my clients.
i have provided on-location hair and makeup services for brides in CT, NY, MA, and NH for the past six years, and am humbled by the fact that many of my clients are referred by word-of-mouth. i love to work with brides, and then their sisters, cousins, friends, and co-workers, and i am so honored to be chosen to be a small part of such a meaningful day.
