Hello! My name is Thuy Unbehauen and I am a passionate hair & make up artist currently located in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
I was born in Vietnam and was raised in Germany. At an early age, I found myself interested in hair styling, make up and the art behind it all. As I grew older, I gained my beautician license and began doing what I absolutely love.
Due to my husband’s military career, I have lived and worked in Germany, Georgia, Texas, Oklahoma and now Colorado!
During my training to become a hair stylist and beautician, I was honored to be the winner of the Bavarian state competition for Creative Hair Styling and Make-Up. After working 5 years in Munich, Germany and specializing in salon services (cuts and coloring) as well as custom brides, I opened my own salon!
After a few moves to America, my husband and I returned to Germany in 2011. I was thrilled to be back home and quickly made a name for myself. I became very involved and extended my talent in the American Kaiserslautern Military community.
In 2012 I successfully completed the Advanced Course in Make-up Artistry for Film and Fashion program at the renowned Catwalk Make Up Artist School in Frankfurt. Since then, I have worked with numerous photographers all over the world for their photoshoots and am continuing this work today. I also have done hair & make up for fashion and fitness competitions throughout Europe.
Today, I am thrilled to be in the Colorado Springs area, working at Sola Salon. I currently practice all salon services and am eager to grow my portfolio in the wedding industry, as well as continue my successful track in high fashion photography.
