“After completing my degree in Computer Science, I set out to follow my dream of being an artist. I am known for bridal hair and make-up around Namibia. Working with brides to create cherished memories is my most rewarding work.”
“I made my solo debut as Namibia’s first black bridal hair and make-up artist operating my own company by the name of Ada’s Creation. I did not plan to become a make-up artist, it just happened by default, my passion has always been in the hair business.”
“I did my cousin’s wedding back in 2012 and the rest is history. I have chosen to work in the bridal industry because most people have a budget for their wedding. I am consistently working with brides. I have come to be known as the bridal hair and make-up artist of choice.”
“I worked on a number of high profile clients across the country including our current President’s wedding where I handled the family’s hair and make-up. This was indeed the highlight of my career.”
“Business grew tremendously towards the end of last year. I realised I was busy every other weekend. I had to seek financial guidance. This was when I finally hired an accountant for bookkeeping. By hiring a financial advisor, I developed a habit of saving, opened up a Business Trust account, and I gave myself a salary fixed at 25% of the monthly profit.”
“The beauty industry has taken over and I feel lucky to be part of it. Women are more sensitive to how they look nowadays. You find ladies visiting a salon twice a week and buying expensive Brazilian hair once or twice a month. I have clients calling me to go do their make-up at 6am because they have other important meetings.”
Bachelors Degree in Computer Science from the University of Nicosia in Cyprus.
Higher National Diploma in Computer Science from the Higher Technical Institute in Cyprus.
“I have a passion for hair and everything beautiful. As a child I have always been good with my hands from drawing to making little outfits for my dolls. I believe in doing something with a passion or not doing it at all. I want to help women feel special, beautiful and powerful. Every women is beautiful but with make-up her confidence, self-awareness and femininity remain.”
