She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Communications with emphasis in Public Relations, and also studied advanced theatre courses including: acting, stage makeup, scene painting and costume design at Georgia Southern University. Fascinated by the production set, she became an anchor and reporter for a local CNN affiliate in the Coastal Georgia region upon graduation.

Boyd was also featured in Cobb Life Magazine as one of the “20 Under 40 Rising Stars in Business” and named one of the “50 Most Beautiful Atlantans” by Jezebel Magazine.

Boyd is a pageant girl herself, starting in the Miss America program as a finalist in the Miss Georgia Scholarship Pageant and has won 12 pageant titles and most notably Mrs. Georgia United States 2003 and Mrs. Georgia International 2008, placing in the top five at both national pageants.

Meredith is known for her big heart, sparkling personality and charming wit, a real team player on set and when she’s off the clock, she loves cooking authentic Cajun dishes and spoiling her husband Matt and 4-legged fur baby Yorkie named, “Rocky” absolutely rotten!

Oh my goodness, where do I begin? Meredith Boyd's hair and makeup skills are off the charts amazing. She was able to get my daughter's super straight hard to curl hair to have Pantene hair commercial worthy hair! It's a miracle - she's got magic in those fingers of hers! So talented at makeup and has such a warm personality, we didn't want to leave! We feel totally prepared with all the knowledge we learned. Thank you for all the tips and positive encouragement too, you're the best and looking forward to bringing my youngest daughter for lessons as well!

Meredith Boyd is a 100 out of 10! If I could give her more stars I totally would in a heartbeat!! She has the patience and professionalism of a saint. So glad I booked a hair and makeup lesson for my daughter in preparation for her state pageant. Meredith guided her through all her expert techniques step by step and answered all of our many, many questions like a pro. She provided valuable life lessons of knowledge my daughter can take with her throughout her high school, college and adult career. Meredith's services are affordable and her makeup line is such good quality it's all we wear and recommend it to all of our friends. It's a great day when we get our order from Meredith Boyd Cosmetics in the mail! Now she can do her own without needing my help and that takes all the stress off! So we both love pageantry even more now than ever! THANK YOU MEREDITH!!! You're a life saver!!

Meredith literally SLAYS your makeup and hair! When I had my headshots done with her husband, Matt, I decided to pin curl my hair before and come clean faced. She applied my makeup so flawlessly. I’ve NEVER looked and felt so confident in my life. As for hair- WOWZA. I have the most unmanageable hair in the world. It won’t hold a curl, but sometimes curls to much. I either have too much volume or not enough. I can’t get it to lay right for anything. Meredith made my hair look fantastic within a matter of minutes. I highly recommend utilizing Meredith for headshots and any other makeup/hair reasons. She’s THE BEST!

> Dear Meredith and Matt, > > Like a ripple in a pond, sometimes an experience has a long-lasting effect on one’s life. Many never even know they were part of it. So I wanted to share it with you. From the time we pulled up to your home until we left, I was floating on air with sheer joy and gratefulness. Your warmth as a couple and individually made me so comfortable. After showing us the Miss America suite where we would stay, I could not contain my exuberance. Meredith, you made her feel special and pretty as you shared and graciously demonstrated all the “how to’s” without making me feel intimidated…the suggestions, counsel, and just your wisdom you shared as you worked. It made me feel like I belonged. Despite the fact, I hardly ever wear makeup or the fact that I did not grow up in the pageant world. > Then to watch how you and Matt related as a couple…not only during the shoot, but even the little things like fetching the lip color for us, cleaning the brushes, and the beautiful writings up in our bedroom that he penned spoke volumes and then, of course, Rocky…sweet little Rocky. > > I can honestly say even if nothing ever comes of this pageant thing, this experience of our paths crossing was worth it. This wasn’t just an appointment for a photoshoot it was one of those experiences that I got to experience and it is embedded in my mind. I didn’t just learn life skills, she had an experience, not one she expected, not one she is used to, this was more than just obtaining headshots….although they are worth it (in and of themselves) Matt’s talent speaks for itself!
