Dusty  McKenna / Co-Owner / Makeup Artist
When it comes to a passion and talent for beauty, some are lucky enough to be born with it and others spend their entire lives learning the techniques and honing their craft. Dusty McKenna happens to be both. Born and raised in her mother’s Texas salon, Beauty Essentials Salon Medspa, Dusty spent her entire childhood practicing makeup on herself and her friends while gaining invaluable skin and beauty education from watching her mother, Patricia Hunt, perfect the highest quality salon and spa treatments.
