AJ’s Hair Design & Makeup

AJ Lane has always enjoyed making people look and feel their best. Beginning as a child, she would take advantage of every opportunity to style hair and apply makeup. Over the years she was frequently recruited and referred by friends and acquaintances to do hair and makeup for special events. Her ambition and talent led her to cosmetology school.

During her trade school years, she was highly sought after for her talents in formal updos and makeup application for weddings all over the Portland and Vancouver area. She was personally mentored by a celebrity makeup artist who worked with many televised events such as The Oprah Show, The Wheel of Fortune and 60 Minutes, and has also worked on many famous people such as Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, and Paul and Linda McCartney. Soon after school, she started her professional business, AJ’s Hair Design and Makeup.

AJ has worked with over a thousand bridal parties, styled a variety of clients for portraits, runway/fashion shows, theme parties and commercial jobs. Over 18 years later AJ still enjoys every minute of it.

She has utilized her experience to personally train licensed artists and expand her business. AJ’s Hair Design and Makeup is now a team of professional and talented artists. They are equipped to provide services at multiple locations at the same time or service large group events.

AJ’s Hair Design and Makeup comes on-site fully equipped. They are prompt, personable, versatile, and flexible. They love working with people, and they love to create confidence from the outside in!

“AJ was great to work with. She was super fast at responding to my emails, and was very clear in price, and what it included. My hair and makeup for my wedding was absolutely fabulous. I’m so glad I went with her. Also two of my bridesmaid had their hair done, and were both impressed by her speed and execution of the styles they asked for. I would defiantly recommend AJ to anyone in the market for professional hair & makeup. Thanks AJ!!!”  -Lauren

“Loved my makeup and hair – brought to life my wishes perfectly for both. Was very calm and mellow on a high stress day as well as professional and prompt. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a beauty and hair artist!” -Sarah

“I took my daughter for her trial run and we had a great time meeting AJ and seeing the magic she creates! She got the hairstyle my daughter wanted on the first try and the make up looked gorgeous! She even did a little trial on me to see if I could tolerate a few false eyelashes. We can hardly wait until the wedding day to see what AJ will do to make us all look lovely!” -Karen
