I am Melissa Moore Bogardus, a hair and make-up artist obsessed with creating the perfect look. I love fashion and get inspiration from faces. I have a Master of Cosmetology, trained and worked as a freelance artist in venues such as Birmingham Alabama, Las Vegas Nevada, Nashville Tennessee, and Miami Florida. I work in TV, film, print and fashion shows, but pageantry and weddings are my true passion. I am the official beauty sponsor for Mrs. United States of Alabama and have been since 2001.
I have worked at Joyce’s Boutique & Salon for 15 years, located in Hueytown Alabama, in a beautiful antebellum home. We are the new version of Steel Magnolias. The salon is decorated in vintage shabby chic which radiates its true southern charm. Joyce’s is a full service Salon & Spa with an amazing staff which specializes in make-up and hair artistry.
