Hi there, I'm Leilani!

My favorite thing about being a cosmetologist is that I am gifted the chance to help someone see their own unique beauty in a brand new way!

When you sit in my chair, you will always be encouraged to embrace what you love most about yourself, while learning how to do your hair and makeup with more ease, ... and you might even get inspired to get creative

with how you do your own styling!

Hi there!

I'm Leilani and I serve this gorgeous Richmond, VA area and beyond in three, yes THREE different ways.

First, I craft natural, lived-in, low maintenance colors...think natural looking brunettes, blondes, and a few reds/coppers!

Second, I craft timeless special occasion hair & makeup looks...think for weddings, baby showers, professional headshots, sweet 16 celebrations, elopements, and maternity or family photoshoots!

Third, I offer in person and virtual Styling Lessons so you can learn to style your own hair or makeup with

more ease and confidence!

As a 26-year-old young woman, I know what it is like to sometimes get overly concerned with my appearance in unhealthy ways. So when you see me, I always love answering questions and showing you tips and techniques to enhance your unique beauty. My prayer is that in every appointment with me, you learn to appreciate what makes you YOU! 

What most stylists offer are core services with basic home maintenance tips. I see my role as your stylist a bit differently. Most importantly, I commit to give you clear, open, honest, and non-judgmental communication during your appointment and between appointments with me. Then I guide you at your appointments and on social media with proven concepts to help you learn to enhance your unique beauty in ways that make the most sense for you!

As of April 2023, I have been a licensed cosmetologist in VA for 6 years and this journey has been full of valuable lessons to strengthen my craft. I love learning online ways to refine my everyday styling, color, and special occasion styling skills.


When I am not in the salon, you'll find me somewhere huddled up, furiously catching up on TV episodes from the past week that I missed with Hulu. Currently, I love 9-1-1/9-1-1 Lonestar, The Rookie/The Rookie Feds, Shark Tank, The Amazing Race, the entire Bachelor franchise, Growing Up Chrisley, and The Masked Singer. Plus, most likely I am either styling my hair for the new week or I'm shoving my face with cookie dough and mocha ice cream :):).


To start the process of requesting an appointment in the customized way I offer, click the "Work with Leilani" button below OR first email me at if you have any questions.

I cannot wait to meet you!
