Vendor Spotlight: Ciarra, HMUA with CFO Beauty | Danielle Hardesty Photography

Over the past few years, I’ve gotten to know Ciarra very well over the past few years and she is the licensed cosmetologist behind CFO Beauty! She is my personal hair stylist (I am picky!).

She also works at Celestine Salon and Spa in Darien as a hair stylist and makeup artist in addition to her other on-location jobs for weddings, special events and photoshoots!


Meet Ciarra:

She is a kind-hearted and gentle soul who immediately makes you feel at ease in her chair no matter what service she is providing for you. So whether you need a hair styling or would like makeup for your DHP family or headshot session, she is your girl!

She also does haircuts and colors at the salon!

Downers Grove Hair and Makeup Artist

Ciarra is an auntie to two amazing young nieces and sister to an amazing friend of mine!

When she is not working, she loves hanging with her friends, spending time with family and experimenting with hair and makeup ideas that keep her creative juices flowing.

As a headshot and branding photographer, I always recommend investing in Hair and Makeup for these types of sessions because it takes your photos to the next level!

If you want to see some of her work combined with my artistry, you can view it in this maternity session and this family session.

Let’s plan your next session and invite Ciarra to join us!
