Owner & Lead Artist

Ever since she was young, she’s had a passion for beauty. In high school, you could find her spending her lunch money on MAC Cosmetics products. After graduating high school, Mandi first obtained an AA degree, with a business based certification. She then graduated from Daytona State College’s cosmetology school in 2007, and has been a licensed cosmetologist within Florida ever since. Mandi decided to further her academic career by obtaining her bachelor’s degree in event management from University of Central Florida. These varying degrees have aided Mandi in not only her beauty industry career, but her ownership of Beauty Brigade, and the knowledge it takes to run a small beauty business within the event industry!

Mandi specializes in on-site hair and makeup applications for weddings, photoshoots, and special events. She excels at creating a natural makeup look for her clients and loves to style chunky braids and updos! However, don’t let this fool you, she is more than willing to provide clients with looks that contain a dramatic flair! She loves to continuously learn new trends within the beauty industry as it evolves! She has received certifications in speciality techniques such as: lash lifts, bridal makeup from Makeup Forever, and 3D hair design! Mandi’s favorite part of her job is meeting all of her wonderful clients, who she gets to share so many special moments with. She knows it truly is a DREAM to wake up and do what you love every day. Mandi takes great pride in herself and her artistry, as well as the amazing team she gets to work alongside!
