Celebrating the artists of The Glam App is the crux of our mission statement. When Joey Maalouf and I came up with the idea to provide an on demand, affordable glam experience to every woman, everywhere; we knew that creating an equally advantageous platform for our stylist was key. With incentives and unique opportunities we hoped to encourage these emerging artists to build their brand, expand their client and create a freelanced community that flourished.
Today I’d like to celebrate Alexandra Ellis. Allie is one of our top booked LA stylists. After months of excelling with the company, my co-founder and I wanted to have the chance to share her experience with everyone. As one of our first stylists, Alexandra has turned her freelance job into a bonafide career. With an effervescent personality, strong ambition, and an insatiable appetite to learn, Allie has become one of The Glam App’s most sought after stylists.
