This Is How Our Story Began

Dolly Monroe Beauty Academy was founded by India Hankins (Dolly),  in early October 2015. While it originally, started as a studio location offering private one on one classes, combined with a love and passion for Professional Makeup Artistry and Aesthetics, the company expanded into semi permanent beauty services such as lash extensions and microblading.

 

Dolly continued to provide beauty services to her local community after leaving her full time job as Artist & Product Specialist at Mac Cosmetics. During her time with her employer, Dolly earned higher rankings within the company in areas of sales, artistry, education, customer service, and client recommendations. While in the field Dolly became the counter Educator, as well as a licensed aesthetician. Her experience while in school to become an aesthetician is what led her to one day open an institution of her own. Despite her love for all things beauty, she discovered she had a love that was far more valuable, Nevaeh, he first born and oldest child...a love in motherhood.  

 

The company came from the humble beginnings of a hand made single space and private studio suite located in the same plaza that we call home today! After the outpouring love and support, Dolly Monroe Beauty Studios continued to grow in all departments and excelled in areas of education. Shortly after Dolly Monroe Studios became Dolly Monroe Beauty Academy, and although now both companies operate separately, both share their love for education, advocacy, and support of their communities. The now, wife, of Titus Calloway, and mom of three continues to service clients in between educational duties, alongside her colleagues and coworkers, never forgetting where she came from.
