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!!

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.

Shaylyn is a professional, she has a kind heart, a great person to be around. She is also educated on what looks good for each individual lady to make them feel and look confident in their own skin. She has personally helped me when I was in need of a makeup and hair stylist on show night when my other arrangements fell through. She stepped in when she was already so busy and had other ladies needing her services. Shaylyn and her sister did my hair and makeup in a dark theater basement when a fuse broke, we had to use the lights from cell phones and any windows we could find. With everything that happened, they still made me feel and look beautiful onstage with all the other gorgeous ladies. I am so grateful for Shaylyn and her sister for taking the time out of their busy night to help me look fabulous!

Shaylyn is the kind of person who not only makes you look amazing, but also makes you feel amazing. When recently asked what my must-have beauty product was, I simply stated “Shaylyn Ford”. Her artistry comes through as each client is uniquely completed and presented. Such amazing talent! I always feel my most confident self competing when Shaylyn is my hair and make-up artist! But more importantly, she is the best human you’ll ever meet. You will walk away with your head held high, yearning to do more, do better, and be confidently the best you ever. It is a priveldge to work with her and simply to know her.

Shaylyn is by far the most incredibly talented, patient, passionate, and genuine hairstylist I've ever had work on my hair. I've never had someone take so much time and effort to ensure that the color, cut, and style fit my face, body type and personality. The entire experience of getting my hair styled was amazing! She is so welcoming and personable. I leave feeling confident and like I can concur the world! She has the biggest most genuine heart and such an eye for finding the beauty in everything. Her talents and genuine spirit are definitely gifts from God! She's in a league of her own!

Shaylyn not only does AMAZING hair and makeup, she makes it a good time when you sit in her chair. When she’s done, you feel good inside and out!! She’s done beautiful work on me before my last “Miss” pageant, and I’m so honored to have her help me go from Miss to Mrs in a few months!!

Shaylyn is a sponsor for Miss Arnold Teen Fitness. I had the opportunity to work with her before and after the pageant this past March. Before the pageant, she was very encouraging and had such a fun and outgoing personality. Throughout the pageant, she did touch ups and made me feel confident as ever. After winning, I had a photoshoot immediately after the pageant. She stayed for this and fixed my hair and makeup for several different outfit changes. She made me look and feel my absolute best and I couldn’t thank her enough! She is THE BEST!!
