Joy's Bio

        Joy is a multi- licensed beauty professional, adjunct professor, international beauty educator and the proprietor of Nails & Faces of Joy Spa. She's been in the beauty business for nearly 10 years. Joy A. Johnson was inspired by the natural and inner beauty of her late mother, who happened to be a vibrant and innovative fashion model. Early on, Joy developed an earned passion for the artistry of beauty and makeup; and it’s led her down an exciting and fast-paced path to pursue her place in the beauty industry. Joy’s natural sense of style and keen business sense resulted in her establishing Faces of Joy Makeup Artistry in 2008, which expanded in 2010 with the addition of her companion company, Nails of Joy. Combining the two, she then created Nails & Faces of Joy and has now evolved into a full-service Day Spa.

She enjoys sharing her artistic knowledge through teaching other artists as well as consumers about the art of makeup, lashes and the world of beauty. Joy knows and appreciates the value of education as well as the positive change it can bring about. That is why she stands by her motto, “There is nothing more powerful than a talented and educated beauty professional.”
