Hair and Makeup: Our Artistic Medium of Choice

Why has word about The Queen’s Bees spread like wildfire? Because our work is art. Hair and makeup is more to us than a profession—it’s our canvas. Our work speaks for itself.
We hand-pick each member of our team, The Bees, based on artistic ability and experience. We pride ourselves on customer service, and it’s an honor for us to be part of your special day. Our purpose is to listen to what you want, create, and pamper you throughout the process.

The Team

Let us introduce ourselves.

The Queens Bees are a collective agency of hair and makeup artists from all over the Central Coast. We have 19 artists and continue to grow. We have artists that specialize in just hair or makeup and a few that do both. We hold ourselves to the highest of standards and challenge each other continuously to grow and learn. We love to have a good time, and want to make the getting ready process as smooth and fun as possible.

Reeda Gorham Founder
Reeda Gorham got her start as a makeup artist for production companies. In 1988 she opened the most successful salon on the Central Coast, Faces A’ La Mode. In 2010, Reeda founded The Queen's Bees to focus on her passion, makeup artistry. In 2015, after being a part of the wedding industry on the Central Coast for nearly 30 years, Reeda decided to step back from The Queen's Bees and focus on her booming permanent makeup business at Studio ReBeLUX.
Jenn Hix Owner
Jenn Hix started doing makeup professionally in 2007 at Sephora in San Luis Obispo. She flourished and grew tremendously during her 3 years training under industry professionals at Sephora. In 2011 Jenn left Sephora and joined The Queens Bees. She worked closely with Reeda, who became a friend, surrogate mom, and mentor. In June of 2015 Reeda presented Jenn with an opportunity she couldn't pass up - to take over The Queen's Bees. How could she refuse her dream job?
