It’s a new episode of Hey, Beautiful, and Gia chats (via Zoom) with Anna Cordaro, a hairstylist and makeup artist who got her start in Northeast Pennsylvania before relocating to the Sacramento area. As owner and educator at Coyote Beauty, Anna offers expert beauty services including bridal, balayage, blowouts and more and also works to inspire confidence in her fellow stylists behind the chair through her role as a brand influencer for Eleven Australia and her new IGTV series, Coyote Confidence. Gia talks with Anna about her near decade of industry experience, her love for her home region, her passion for education and why now is the best time to seize a career in beauty. Anna also spilled her favorite products and some pro secrets to optimize your routine.
