I have got my hair and makeup done by Shaylyn countless times and not one of those times was I disappointed! She does her best on each person she works with and gives her all into the looks. I never want to take off my makeup or un-do my hair after she’s done it! She makes you feel so comfortable and is very professional!

When you sit in Shaylyn's chair, the nerves accompanying a photo shoot or pageant disappear. You step out with a stunning look that doesn't fade! And trust me, under the lights, I perspire & would melt like a snowman, without her expertise!!!! Shaylyn's talent to illuminate a person's beauty is a reflection of her own beauty, internally & externally! She brings out the best and is an incredible supporter to each person her brushes touch!

Wow is the first word that comes to mind when I think of Shaylyn Ford and her glam squad! My hair and make up were on point every day (and night) during pageant week at Nationals in Las Vegas 2019. I’ve never looked or felt more beautiful. She and her team are so professional, personable and superior to anyone who’s ever done my hair and make up in past. Thank you Shaylyn! You’re amazing! ? ? ?

What a treasure we have in Ohio with Shaylyn's skills and knowledge. She gave me tips on not just my skin but my "hairline!" who would have thought that would matter! She knows her craft and always makes me feel my best when she does my face! She mastered my look to help me win the National Jr. Teen Captivating 2020 title and helped me look my best for the follow up photo shoot. She's even done my mom's hair and makeup and helped her feel her best. I'm thankful to learn from her and benefit from her amazing skills and talent.

I met Shaylyn this year at a pageant when she was my makeup artist. I have to say that her work is amazing. She was able to give me a fresh natural look and it was not heavy makeup. I had a flawless look thanks to Shaylyn. I look forward to working with her in the future. To me, she is not just a makeup artist, she is my friend. Anyone that is lucky enough to have Shaylyn do their makeup for any event is blessed. She deserves the title of make-up artist of the year!!

I have personally known Shaylyn for years. Just recently, she did my hair and make up for my wedding, along with all nine of my bridesmaids. Shaylyn made us all look and feel radiant!! I wouldn’t have wanted to go with anyone else because Shaylyn is extremely talented and very precise in her work!!

Shaylyn is an exemplary PERSON. She follows that up by using her make-up skills to make any contestant feel more confident - confident enough to go on and win state and national pageants, star in commercials, and walk major runways. She should be noted for her warm and encouraging personality as well. I'M VOTING FOR HER FOR TOP MAKEUP ARTIST. This is the only place I could find to do that.

I am proud to have the opportunity to nominate Shaylyn Ford. Through my preparation for Miss Pennsylvania USA, my sister (Miss Ohio USA 2018) recommended that I contact Shaylyn for her expertise on how to do my onstage makeup. Although we only live 3 hours apart, the time that we both had available was during her vacation with her husband when she was out of state. Out of the pure kindness in her heart, we had a Skype session during her trip and she taught me techniques that I had never known before- it transformed the way I put my makeup on and took me to the next level at the competition! She didn’t stop there though, throughout the pageant she stayed in contact with me and asked how I was doing along the way. She even gave me advise up until the moment I walked out on stage. Her passion is to empower others and it radiates through her God given abilities to help women look and feel their absolute best. I give Shaylyn my highest recommendation. If you are someone that is searching for a makeup artist that will go the extra mile to ensure that you’re prepared for your big day, schedule with Shaylyn today!

Shaylyn has an uncanny ability to bring the best out of someone — physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Makeup and curl irons are simply the mediums she utilizes to usher in that best version of her clients. It’s inspiring to watch, and her passion for the beauty industry is contagious. Her talent speaks for itself, but the heart behind her craft is why I nominate her for best hair and makeup artist.
