I have always been passionate about the beauty industry since I was a little girl. Whoever was babysitting me at the time was at my mercy and I certainly thank them for trial and error from a young age!

My career became serious when I began specializing in Bridal Makeup at a smaller local boutique at the age of sixteen. Although I have been trained in many brands since then, I really attribute any and all makeup knowledge that I have to be self-taught... we didn't have youtube back then! Continuing in makeup sales I was trained further on a brand-by-brand basis at ULTA, Bare Minerals, and Sephora, respectively. Through my extensive trainings, I was able to create a large arsenal of knowledge not only in makeup sales, but in applications as well.

During my time in college, I took my passion a step further and obtained my NYS Waxing License. Waxing was certainly one of my first loves and a gateway into blossoming my passion for beauty even further. Once I got into the service industry on a more personal level, there was no stopping me. I ultimately enrolled in a local school for Cosmetology and obtained my NYS Cosmetology License in 2012.

Since then I have continued to absorb any and all beauty knowledge and have taken great care to become educated in every new trend associated with my trade. My current most popular service is Eyelash Extensions, and I have been certified through Borboleta which has an impressive monopoly on the lash industry. 

Microblading, and Ombre-brow tattooing is the newest, hottest trend in the beauty world. I have been making women feel more confident in their brows for two years now via semi-permanent makeup, and I am in love with this  transformative service. You can read more about it in the "service" section of my site, or email me.

I started with Bridal parties, and it is my admitted first love, I do book up fast, so if you are looking to have me service you for your wedding whether it's prepping with lashes, or hair and makeup for the day of, I am more than happy to be of service to you.

After lots of dreaming, and saving, I have decided to take the plunge and open up my own small studio in Williamsville where I can continue to service my repeat clientele and meet prospective clients, building lasting relationships in my new space. I'm now a salon owner! Don't hesitate to email, call, and inquire about services we can provide for you and help you to feel beautiful inside and out!


Jeannie Bringas

Buffaglow & Microblading Artist

Jeannie is from Miami, Florida and has been in Buffalo for three years. Although she seems to prefer the cold, she wasn’t happy about the lack of glow she was getting from the change of weather.

Fake-and-baking is a thing of the past, and spray tans are in! It’s been some time since Ross turned orange in “Friends”, and spray tanning has come a long way. Jeannie insists on the use of formulas that are organic, vegan, gluten free, and violet based.

Microblading is something that Jeannie is passionate after watching a family member lose her eyebrows and her confidence. Her clients complain of little to no pain with the technique she uses. She has been trained by Julie and you can see her brow work on our Instagram.
