We had the good fortune of connecting with Jessica Bystricky and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jessica, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
The most important factor behind the success of Beauty and the Babes is our team. Without my amazing artists, my business would not be where it is today.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am a licensed esthetician and professional makeup artist. I started my business in Colorado in 2016 where I was a freelancing makeup artist for Jessica Bystricky Beauty. In 2017, I decided I wanted to offer hairstyling services as well and I hired my first hairstylist. Since then, I have added six artists to my team and rebranded, thus creating Beauty and the Babes. Having a team was exciting and terrifying. When you work really hard to build a business and create a name for yourself, you want to make sure you have the right people representing you and your brand. I hit a few bumps along the way but ended up with the best, most talented team of artists working alongside me.

Beauty and the Babes specializes in wedding hair and makeup. We have been awarded “Best of Weddings” by the Knot for the last four consecutive years. This award represents the highest and most-rated wedding professionals in Colorado and is only held by 5% of hundreds of thousands of local wedding professionals.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My talented hairstylists and makeup artists deserve recognition as they are what keeps this business growing.
