A Letter From Cataanda

I am Cataanda J, your favorite curly girl, educator, beauty expert, and influencer. As a little girl, I fell in love with all things beauty. Growing up, I knew I wanted to make people feel beautiful for a living. While in high school, I attended vocational school to study Cosmetology. After graduation, I went to Dudley Cosmetology University to finish my Cosmetology degree. This is where my love for doing hair and makeup turned to passion. I was able to unleash my creative expression through beauty, while learning theory. I graduated top of my class and went on to pass the State Board exam, becoming a licensed Cosmetologist at 19. As an artist, I was a natural. Mastering the technical knowledge, theory, science and business acumen came with hard work. My determination, and humility was the driving force for me to learn what wasn’t taught in school. Through the years, I have worked in various roles for leading brands across the globe. The knowledge gained from each experience has opened the door to greater opportunities. In 2022, I launched CJ The Beauty Group, an elite beauty consulting firm. A home that encompasses every unique skill I have mastered along the way. To find out more about the services I provide, visit the Services Page for details. I would love to partner with you on bringing your vision to life. Let’s make beauty!
