Keliann Jimenez has been in the spotlight since she was 13 years old. She won her first beauty pageant in 2008 and would later add six more titles to her name. Commercials and photo shoots followed, as did visits to exotic locations around the world. Even after all of those experiences, she still felt something was missing. Inspired to contribute more to the world, she hit the books to earn a business degree.
Combining her education with her experience in the beauty industry, she founded Studio By Keliann to help others find expression through make-up and hair design. She and her team of studio artists beautify clients at stations furnished with ornate mirrors and simple black chairs. Stylists augment locks with cuts, color treatments, and extension services, and makeup artists create timeless looks and sometimes dabble in special-effects makeup for everything from zombie-themed parties to dates with actual zombies.
