Co-owners, Renee Rivera and Ishshah Estrada, were childhood friends that reconnected in 2010 to start what is now Ishnae & Co. From working unpaid events and local gigs to working long 60 hour weeks, this dynamic duo strived to take their company from a two woman partnership to a team of talented individuals that travel worldwide assisting people of all ethnicities, cultures, and age groups. We specialize in bridal hair and makeup but also extend our services to special occasions, commercial work, and editorial! Our goal is to be known to all as the "go to" beauty team for any event.
RENEE RIVERA, Lead Makeup Artist
Starting with her primary passion for art, it led her to creating YouTube videos competing against other makeup artists world wide. After winning many contests, she was discovered by the owner of a local mineral makeup company. She took this amazing opportunity of being the lead makeup artist for the company to travel the nation applying makeup to all ethnicities and age groups. She quickly learned the importance of listening to the client and knowing how to create makeup looks that matched not only their features but how to enhance them and exceed the clients expectations. Although Renee loved her new role she felt the need to expand her horizon in the makeup industry and joined Sephora.
Sephora instantly saw the potential Renee had and in just months, she became her store’s number one makeup artist and loved by many of her superiors. While working here, Renee gained the experience of using different makeup brands and learned tricks of the beauty trade. This atmosphere opened her creativity and level of experience to work and become a freelance makeup artist for her own business.
ISHSHAH ESTRADA, Lead Hair Stylist
Throughout the years, Ishshah has become very well known amongst her community as the best hair stylist they know. Attending Paul Mitchell beauty school gave Ishshah a great advantage in learning the modern looks of today and techniques celebrity hair stylist use on a day to day basis. Before attending school for hair, she already had a self taught talent from practicing on family and close friends growing up. She knows how to work with all ethnicities and can handle any request given. Nothing is ever too big or too small for her to accomplish and she always does so, with a smile on her face. Brides have been very happy with her performance and very pleased when they leave her chair to see themselves in the mirror with a look they have only seen in magazines and never thought was possible. Her technique has been shared with our team to assure all our work is in sync. Effortless and hair that flows with the clients features is the best way to describe her work however, she knows how to go outside her zone in order to achieve any requested look.
