Dhalia Edwards and team is a full service makeup studio of talented artists.
Welcome! My name is Dhalia (like the flower) and I reside in Virginia Beach, Virginia with my husband and two children. I grew up in the Hampton Roads area and it's where I perfected my passion of makeup for more than eight years. My business has grown so much the past four years that I now own a studio located in Chambord Commons Shoppes, providing in house services as well as on location. I’ve been fortunate enough to work with some of the most recognized photographers, agencies, crews and talent. Working in most areas of the entertainment industry, including T.V., print, and video. While there is excitement in that side of the industry, my absolute favorite place to be is working with a bride on her wedding day!
When I'm not busy playing with makeup and skincare products, I can be found cheering my kids on with sports, or laid out on the beach spending time with friends and family. Thank you for visiting and hopefully we'll get to meet soon! #DhaliaEdwards
MEET THE ARTISTS
Hello! My name is Melissa and I've been working with Dhalia Edwards since 2014.
I fell in love with makeup when I was a little girl. In high school I was the makeup artist for the school musicals and in college I would always doll up my sorority sisters before a night out on the town!
Dhalia and I met when she was the makeup artist for my wedding and we quickly became friends over our love for makeup. When she was looking to expand her business, I jumped at the opportunity to work with her! I am so excited to be a member of Dhalia's team and am looking forward to working with you! #DhaliaEdwardsMelissaR
Hi! My name is MeLissa. Anything that involves fashion and beauty is my passion. I am only five classes away from my bachelors degree from Old Dominion University, double majoring in fashion merchandising and marketing. I am also a full time Co-Manager at a fashion retailer located in a nearby mall. I met Dhalia in 2016 and have already fallen in love with her attention to detail and her high level of professionalism.
I love being creative and what better way to do so but through makeup! In my fashion class in high school, many years ago, we would watch fashion shows as assignments. Other than the garments, the makeup drew my interest and applying makeup quickly became a hobby of mine. Today, I take pride in my craft and am honored to give you the self-confidence you deserve and will cherish for a lifetime. #DhaliaEdwardsMelissaW
Hi! My name is Hailey. I've been born and raised in Va Beach, Virginia, but my heart resides in California. In the year 2014 I started my journey in California going to school at FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising). I completed my first year as a visuals major. Growing up I've always had an eye for design and art in all aspects.
In 2015 I returned home because Cali is a pretty penny (I plan to return one day). 2015 is when I found my deep passion for makeup. In the past year I've taken courses and much more to perfect my art. I'm very in tune with social media which is where I actually ran into Dhalia. I'm very excited to serve you all and make each face I see more beautiful one brush stroke at a time. #DhaliaEdwardsHailey
Hello! My name is Elizabeth.
I have always loved makeup since I was a kid. My mom would give me her samples and I pretended to own my own makeup counter. My whole life everyone has always said that I needed to be a Makeup artist and I've always been my friends go to girl when they need makeup for a night out.
I fell in love with Dhalia's work through social media but was able to see it first hand when she did the makeup for my friends wedding. I finally decided to chase my dream and reached out to her and I'm so glad I did. Making people feel beautiful is a wonderful feeling. I look forward to working with each and every one of you! #DhaliaEdwardsElizabeth
Assistant: Brittney Henson
Hi, I'm Brittney! I'm a young, goal orientated mother that has always loved makeup, even when I had no clue what I was doing! . To me it's much more than applying foundation or lipstick, it's about making a woman's confidence explode! When you look great you feel great and nothing can stop you or get in your way. There's no better feeling than knowing I have helped somebody's inner beauty be portrayed on the outside. Dhalia Edwards gave me an opportunity to grow as an artist and fulfill my dreams one gorgeous face at a time. I'm a great team player, and I really enjoy working with the other girls to make our clients happy. It's a joy being able to come to work and have fun with some of the coolest girls in the industry! #DhaliaEdwardsBrittney
