The Owners

Emily Eckhart

Co-owner + lead hair artist

For as long as I can remember, hair has always been a passion of mine. I graduated from the Aveda Institute in Austin in 2015 and have been behind the chair for over 4 years! A year after I graduated, I started styling hair for high school proms and homecoming events which led me to career opportunities working in the wedding industry. To continue my growth, I invested in bridal hair + formal event styling education to set myself apart as not only an expert in cut and color, but also one who can create beautiful updos as well. I absolutely love seeing the joy in my clients’ faces when they leave feeling refreshed and confident! Building relationships with others and community is what I appreciate most about my job and I knew I wanted to start a company that values providing a customized client experience. Joining the

Hair + Makeup Artist

Hi! My name is Alexi and I am heading into my senior year at Texas A&M University and am studying Business. I was born and raised in College Station! My love for makeup began my sophomore year of high school by watching makeup tutorials on YouTube. I started playing around with creating fun, different looks on myself and soon-- friends started asking me to do their makeup. Since then, I have continued to learn and keep up with the latest trends. I never planned on a career in makeup but it has inspired me to continue doing what I love. When I'm not doing makeup, I love to spend time with friends and family and love to travel!

Hey babes! I am a hair and makeup artist and have been a licensed cosmetologist working as a hair & MUA for 7 years! The passion I have for this industry burns deep within my soul so much that I dropped out of college to pursue my dreams and have found no greater joy or success from doing so. The joy I get from making others feel confident and beautiful is the best part of my job! I’m mostly behind the chair during the week specializing in color, but love when I get to do some glam for weddings or special events. When I’m not doing hair or makeup, I love to create content for my blog and spend time with my family! My husband and I have a cute little boy named Rhett that we are pretty obsessed with. So proud to be apart of this amazing group of talented women, and can’t wait to make magic with them!

Hi friends, my name is Lauren and I am a makeup artist for Glow and Grace! It sometimes surprises people that I am also a full time ER nurse-- but I guess you could say I love to help people feel their best inside and out. When I'm not saving lives or doing makeup, you can find me traveling with my husband, Austin, snuggling with my golden doodle and cat, or working out! I can't wait to continue my career as a MUA and meet all of you!

Hey friends! I’m Brooke- a professional hair and makeup artist! I’ve been in the industry for 6 years and found my love for bridal over 4 and a half years ago. I specialize in romantic updos and blushing makeup looks but my favorite look to create is a soft and wispy low bun! I’m a cat mom to my two kitties (one of whom, between us, is more like a puppy 😜), wife to a physics teacher, and a big lover of coffee! I can’t wait to glam you up on your big day!

makeup artist

Hi friends, I'm Lexi, and I am a licensed esthetician and self proclaimed braid queen for GGA! I've always had a passion for hair and makeup, and once I made my way into the bridal world- that was it for me. When I'm not glamming up brides and bridesmaids, you can find me in my studio installing hair extensions and helping my clients achieve their goals. I can't wait to meet you all and help you achieve your vision!

HI HELLO! My name is Elyssia Scifres & I am a Makeup Artist for Glow + Grace Artistry! I was born & raised here in Bryan - College Station, Texas. I have been in the beauty industry for the last 10 years - and have spent the past 5 years as a makeup artist in Bridal. I was introduced to makeup in my youth and trained by my grandmother - A former beautician. My love to help others enhance their beauty remains constant and grows at the same time. Every face, application, & wedding I fall MORE in love with the art of makeup! When I’m not playing in makeup, I’m spending time with the loves of my life, my husband and our three beautiful children. On a rare moment that I’m not spending all my time with my huge Mexican family, I am creating content for my online beauty community, singing Praise + Worship music (LOUD) and cooking or eating really good food! And making lists because, BIG Virgo energy. Can’t wait to glam with all of you pretties 💋

Hello, my name is Kaitlynn VanCourt! I’ve been a professional makeup artist for 5 years. I love doing makeup because I love the artistry that goes into it. Every face is a new canvas you get to create with and from the artist’s perspective no two canvases are the same. Getting to create art with makeup all while making the client feel like the best version of themselves is the most rewarding experience. Building relationships and friendships with both my clients and fellow team mates really adds to the enjoyment of what I do because a good atmosphere is everything! Outside of my job as a MUA, I am a college student, love going to the gym, hanging with my two cats or spending quality time with friends and family. I enjoy nature and being active outside. I can’t go anywhere without music so count on me to have headphones or a speaker with me at all times. I simply believe we can do anything we want in this life and the best way to make yourself happy is by doing what you love. Creating art and being able to make someone feel amazing is what I love. It is a privilege to be apart of the Glow and Grace artistry team. I work with some incredibly powerful and uplifting women and am so excited to continue growing with the team and honing my skills as an artist. 

Hey ya'll! My name is Anika and I am one of the hair artists for the amazing Glow and Grace team. I recently started my journey in becoming a professional hairstylist and am so excited to be working with other amazing women who are apart of the GGA family. I officially graduated from cosmetology school this past May and will soon begin my journey in the salon in addition to working with Glow and Grace. When I'm not working, I love to spend time with my family. I can't wait to meet every one of you!

Kristen Hitt

Co-owner + lead makeup artist

I am a proud wife, mama and a firm believer that a cup of coffee can cure all things. I have always been an artist at heart but like many of you, I graduated from Texas A&M University with a plan to pursue a career in medical sales. My career as a makeup artist began when I was 19 with Bare Minerals, where I received professional training in makeup application. I loved every second of my job but decided to continue my track at A&M, where I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree in 2011. I went on to have a highly successful career in medical sales for the next 5 years, and at the height of my career achieved top awards within my company such as Rookie of the Year and President’s Club back to back.

I also enjoy playing tennis, traveling, and working out.

heart that I was being called to do what I truly loved. As my passion for my craft in makeup artistry grew, so did the requests for my makeup services. When both of my best friends gave me the honor of doing their wedding makeup for their big day, I realized that being a professional makeup artist was what I was truly destined to do. Nine months after our first daughter was born, I decided to take the first step towards my goal and leave my medical sales career to be at home with her and focus on building my rapport as a makeup artist. I never looked back! I have worked exclusively in the Houston wedding industry as a makeup artist full time for the last 3 years with Etoilly Artistry, but could not be more excited for our journey in College Station. Outside of all things makeup, I enjoy family trips to the beach, spending time with my hubby and our precious girls, Cora + Emery, and laughing with my best gal pals and a spicy margarita in hand. I hope to continue my journey and become a luxury, celebrity makeup artist but until then- I can’t wait meet all of you!
