I’m Emily Van Scoy, a wife and mama. I am a Pittsburgh based destination hair and makeup artist.

I have a passion for creativity and empowering women to feel good, look good and become their most confident self.


I was born & raised in Southern California where I completed cosmetology school at 18 and began to follow my dream of becoming a hair & makeup artist. I assisted celebrity makeup artists, worked on commercials, music videos, runway, film, weddings… You name it I’ve worked it!

I am now located in Pittsburgh, PA. where you can still find me on set or on the road heading to my next client I get the pleasure of beautifying!

I am a hair and makeup specialist, meaning, whether I am getting you ready for your big day, moment in front of the camera, or a special girls night out, I ensure you have the best experience with the best results. I only use the most high end and professional makeup products and tools to bring your vision to life. 

What people say...

Emily was so great to work with! She is very professional and friendly. I had so many changes with my wedding due to Covid and Emily was quick to always make it work. My makeup was flawless and stayed perfect all night! I’m actually using Emily again for a mini photo shoot and would recommend her to anyone!

Emily did my hair and makeup for my elopement in Joshua Tree and honestly, she was AMAZING. It’s so hard to find someone who can really execute natural makeup and hair, but she did it effortlessly. She was patient with me and my craziness since I don’t wear a lot of makeup and really just made me feel so beautiful for my elopement. I already miss her and wish she could be around for any special occasion now 😂 thank you Emily!! ❤️

Emily was amazing from the get go! Not only did she do my engagement photo shoot makeup but my bridesmaids and I were blessed with her services on the day of my wedding. Growing up I had always envisioned my wedding going a certain way and Emily helped to bring those visions to life. I honestly couldn’t be happier. My makeup looked flawless, it lasted all night, and it was a wonderful experience. My hair was a dream and exactly what I asked for! Her and Chloe made the day go smoothly and all of my girls looked beautiful! I highly recommend Emily for any hair/makeup service you are needing! She is down to earth and so so sweet!
