Hi I am Missy, I am a make up artist, waxing specialist, curator of the perfect brow and the neighborhood's resident expert 'PHD' (pubic hair dresser!) I am also a skin care and an all-around wellness & feel-good coach.

I love to be the recipient and bearer of good news an advocate for self-full-fillment. I love seeing people feel good and be reminded of their own beauty. I am proud to have created a space for those who desire a place to relax, breathe, feel good about themselves and comfortable Being exactly who they are!

Founded in the summer of 2015, 'my little piece of heaven,' was the next logical step in the evolution of my life in the beauty and wellness industry. Located at the heart of the Grand Lake district, a large block north of Oakland's beautiful and historic Grand Lake Theater, the space was created for the purpose of higher wellness and upliftment for every  person who comes through my doors! Come on in for some MisMo goodness. I look forward to seeing you soon.

Time After Time

"This woman. Not only is she a master at her craft, she comes with an energy that soothes the soul. No matter what kind of day you are having, when you walk into the world of Missy, you are inhaling some intentional and refreshing air. And on top of that, you leave with some of the freshest eyebrows in Oakland. "
— Lauren C.

Amazing and lovely!

"She's professional, fast, kind, and I can't imagine going anywhere else. Facials, wax, whatever you need she'll make you shine! Super cute space too. "
— Sarah M.

Excellent service

"I just visited Missy Moran Studios for a make-up lesson and upgrade and it was so worth it. Missy is very welcoming and knows what she's doing. She gave me the advice and tips I was looking for, and I loved the products she suggested. I highly recommend her!"
— Audrey Y.

Magic Hands

"Missy's hands and spirit are magic! What she does to soothe my face and my spirit is unlike any other esthetician and make up artist I've known."
— Jane T.

Make Up Maven

"Missy was my make up artist on my wedding day. Every time I look back on my bridal portrait, I remember how beautiful I felt and how glamorous I looked. She is the best at what she does and I wouldn't recommend anyone else!"
— Gia B.

She's The Best 

"Missy taught me so much about make up and myself. For each event, she took the time to understand the venue, my outfit and the vibe I was trying to create for myself and my guests. She has helped me to branch out and not be afraid of being bold when the occasion calls for it. That being said, never have I left her chair without still feeling like myself. If I had to sum up working with Missy, it would be to say that she takes the time to know you, your face and bring out your best because she is the best."
— Shephali P.

She's Awesome! 

"Wouldn't have wanted anyone else but Missy to do my makeup on my wedding day. She has a positive and vibrant energy that is so refreshing and infectious. I just sat back, enjoyed the moment and let her do her magic."
— Rica P.
