Adriana has been in the beauty industry for over a decade as a professional makeup artist and stylist, and is the founder of the BB Academy of Cosmetology. While working as a cosmetologist, she noticed students were graduating school and were not equipped with many of the tools they needed to express their unique artistic talent. She decided to take matters into her own hands by founding the school, pouring her passion into the project.

Adriana also has hands-on experience and knows the day-to-day workings of a salon. The Beauty Bar salon, managed by Adriana, has won “Best Salon in Southington” almost every year since its opening. In addition to working as a stylist in her salon, she also works as an on-location event and bridal artist for both hair and makeup.
