How it began
Latrisha Uraje (Trisha) founded Amazing Occasion's Beauty Studio (formerly "Amazing Occasions Hair Design & Makeup") in 2010. She had been designing hair since middle school and decided to follow her passion by obtaining her cosmetology license in 2001. Her love of makeup soon followed. Trisha found a way to utilize her talent when she started offering her services to the community for special occasions. What started out as "side" business turned into a full-time business! From her very first year, the business has grown substantially and she now is building a team of like-minded and very talented hairstylists & makeup artists who share her passion in making people look and feel AMAZING!
