We had the good fortune of connecting with Dariann Morton-High and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Dariann, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
It’s actually crazy because I grew up as a tomboy I didn’t even wear makeup to my senior prom! I was working a dead end job and fell in love with a YouTuber who was doing hair and makeup on someone and I ran to my Bestfriends house, as soon as she opened the door I said I am going to learn how to do this as a job.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I believe what sets me apart would be that I started for free! It wasn’t about the money and still isn’t it was about not feeling your best or being so tired , not investing in yourself and health. When you come and sit in my chair whatever service you get I want you to feel like “That’s Me”. I’ve lost a lot as I’ve grown including my father and when he died in 2018 I literally died with him. I didn’t work for that entire year and o heard his voice tell me it’s time. My brand is family oriented I love all people I want to make all people feel beautiful.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Love this question , so if my friends are in town we most likely will catch a dine in/ bar scene. Our favorites are Kamp Houston , Lost & Found midtown , and Taste Bar. We like to have fun so , Andretti which is a huge indoor fun park , or maybe even food truck parks or events in discovery green. The biggest thing would probably be The Galleria we all have shopping problems haha.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My family , my three bestfriends , Ericka , Nickia , and Steven. Without them I would have never been able to continue or even start. From either being a model or telling me how good I was doing throughout the years , even purchasing a lot of my starting equipment. I am forever thankful for them and when I get to the top of the top they’re coming with me ❤️
