Make-up Artist Jessica Diaz
Wondering what is Vanity Haus? Well here's my interview with the lovely and talented ladies of Vanity Haus. Read about who they are and what this beauty team can do for you!
What is Vanity House?
Vanity Haus is striving to change women's beauty routine, it feels like now a days it's more of a chore, we want to make it more of an environment of luxury and an enjoyable experience. Somewhere that we can bring back female camaraderie.

How did you come up with name Vanity Haus?
We threw a lot of things around for a while but just couldn't decide on anything. We wanted it to feel cozy and comfortable, almost as if you were at a girl friends house. And we wanted it to be versatile enough where we can really take it anywhere that our lives and creativity lead us.
When did you establish Vanity Haus?
All three of us were working at a new salon at the time, we were all really excited about the change that we thought it would bring. It seemed like it was going to be more than just a regular salon experience. A few months down the line we started to realize that it was the same old salon routine. It was like any other place. We had all been toying with the idea of starting a blog together or something similar for a while and from that and our experience at this place we just thought bigger.
Who's idea was it to team up with each other?
We're all just really awesome and why not! jk
Are you guys friends?
Sometimes … yeah, we're bffs
Have you always wanted to be a make-up artist? Hair artist, etc.?
I think we all had different career plans when we were younger. Jess wanted to be a vet. Only for dogs… (lol) But none of us seemed to be able to get our creative needs met by any of those plans. Life just threw us in this direction and we have never looked back!
What kind of training or schooling have you ladies had in your field?
Bethy attended Paul Mitchell the School. She's worked at high end salons and does a lot of freelance work in print, runway and film. Jessica graduated from the Make Up Designory and has also worked on set as a freelance artist, in major beauty retailers and in a salon setting. Her product knowledge is impressive! And I Alex, am currently working on my marketing and business degree.
Do you guys travel? Are you willing?
What look is your favorite to create?
Bethy: We all have a different style, which is why it's so much fun to work with each other.
Jessica: Alex likes to do crazy out of the box stuff, I like classic and vintage, really feminine looks, but then I like doing goth too! I just want to throw red lipstick on anything. And Bethy makes everyone's hair sexy.

Where do you guys see each other in 5 years?
In 5 years, we hope to be a household name.
Who would be your dream celeb to work on? And why?
Well Jessica has a MAJOR crush on Chris Hemsworth.
What is the hardest thing you've come across in your field?
Egos! Jk. We're very new in the business so we haven't been hit with anything too crazy, but I'm sure there will be plenty of make or break situations.
What inspires you?
Everything and anything. Our families, our friends, color, texture, seasons… anything.
What has been the craziest moment in your career so far?
Realizing how much support and love we have around us while starting this whole thing. There is one person in particular who has taken it upon themselves to push us, encourage us and guide us. We love her and appreciate her more than we can express. We feel so blessed.
