Phylicia Bongiorno

Born a girly girl in 1988, Phylicia committed early in life to the art of cosmetology and has been doing hair and makeup since the age of 2.  Professionally trained at Toni & Guy Hairdressing Academy in Erie, Phylicia has been a licensed cosmetologist in the state of Pennsylvania since 2007.

A 2012 graduate of Carlow University in Pittsburgh, Phylicia supported herself using her mad scissor skills at Famous Hair while earning a dual Bachelor’s degree in Accounting/Forensic Accounting.  For the past three years, she spent her days crunching numbers as a Tax Consultant for Deloitte Tax LLP.  Week nights and weekends were spent researching and practicing classic techniques in hair arrangement and makeup application on delighted clients. Phylicia is happy to announce that she recently made her hair and makeup consultancy a full-time gig! Phylicia serves both the Erie and Pittsburgh areas as an on-location makeup artist and hair stylist.

Phylicia’s passion for hair and makeup artistry has made her a firm believer that great hair and makeup aren’t what make a woman beautiful — they are a catalyst for helping a woman realize the beauty that is already there. She prides herself on perfection and is committed to empowering her clients and showcasing their beauty.
