Aaliyah BurtonWig and Makeup Design

Born and raised in Springfield, Missouri, I began my theatre journey early in my life in a local community theatre. There I quickly realized that my place was backstage helping performers find their characters in the fine details of their hair and makeup. I then followed my passion to the The Conservatory of Theatre Arts at Webster University where I would obtain a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Wig & Makeup design. In my time there, I participated and designed in university productions as well as internships where I gained experience in film, opera, indoor and outdoor theatre. In my free time I enjoy creating various forms of art such as painting, photography and ceramics as well as watching movies.
