Hey, gorgeous! My name is Hannah Metz - I’m a Professional Makeup Artist & Stylist, as well as the Owner of Hannah Elisabeth Beauty! My journey in the beauty world began nearly 10 years ago, and since then, life has been full of unexpected surprises.
After finishing Cosmetology school, working as a stylist in a upscale salon, and falling in love with the hustle & heart of being a freelance Makeup Artist & Stylist in Chicago, I finally landed my dream job with MAC Cosmetics. Working for MAC was one of many incredible experiences early on in my career - I learned from some of the most talented artists in the industry, refined my skills, but most importantly, it gave me a head start in building my business and establishing myself as a Professional Makeup Artist. It was in that time that I realized my passion in working with Brides, and making them feel their most beautiful on one of the most important days of their lives!
In 2015, I finally took the leap of faith to put everything I had into my newly growing business, Hannah Elisabeth Beauty. I said goodbye to my day job at MAC Cosmetics, and embraced my day dream of focusing on my career as a full time business owner, and professional Makeup & Hair Artist.
I had no idea at the time all of the incredible things that were in store - To put it simply, Hannah Elisabeth Beauty has grown beyond any of my wildest hopes and dreams! Since then, I have never looked back. In 2017 after working with countless amazing brides, and learning the ropes of both the Beauty & Bridal Industry, I had come to realize how much of a necessity there was to have talented, reliable and professional artists. Furthermore, to truly offer our clients and brides the best experience possible, we needed to not only focus on an elite level of artistry, but to also provide them with excellence in how we run our business! It was then that I began slowly but meticulously building a team of Chicago’s Best hair and makeup professionals.
I wanted to offer something to our Brides & Clients that they couldn’t find with just any team - The luxury of having on location services with skilled and knowledgable artists, as well as the professionalism, organization and personal touch that would make their wedding day & special events (or just any day they want to look and feel their best), a memorable experience! We began as a team of three, and over the course of the first year working together, Senior Artists Amela, Jessica and I could never have imagined how our lives would change forever.
The Hannah Elisabeth Beauty Team has expanded to a team of fifteen Artists & Stylists in both our flagship location of Chicago, as well as recently adding our Los Angeles, San Diego and Orange County locations. Our team has traveled to 10 different States across the country, and went international for the first time in 2018. My experience and diversity as an artist in every area of the industry, from our amazing brides on their wedding days, to training & working alongside the top celebrity artists on Hollywood’s up and coming, has equipped me with the skills to create and lead this incredible girl boss team from coast to coast. One of my favorite quotes to date is “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together” and this couldn’t resonate more with Team HEB. I can’t wait for all that’s in store for the future!
Thank you so much for stopping by - We can’t wait to work with you!
