Our Story

Amy Head Cosmetics wasn't built on tubes of lipstick and the pigments of eye shadows, it was built on the simple idea of love. Love for others and feeling it for ourselves when we look in the mirror. While makeup is the fun and powerful tool we use, it is not what we stand for. We stand for the power of self love when a woman or girl can look in the mirror and truly see her beauty. 
We have mastered the way to teach and convey this using Amy Head's techniques that she developed when she needed to see her own beauty. 
She didn't do it alone. Our brand started and grew with her husband, Harold, helping make it happen. Without both of them, the reach of this service wouldn't exist.
It definitely wouldn't exist without you and we extend our deepest gratitude!


About Amy Head

"Doing this business was not at all a plan I had for my life. As a matter of fact, It began through a lot of doors closing on what I thought I wanted to do. Thank God, literally, for those painful times. They directed me toward something I could have never orchestrated on my own. 

Then there is my husband Harold, a commercial photographer. I could not nor would not have done any of this without him. Harold experienced with me the discovery of my talent and the impact it was having on women. They were seeing themselves in an authentically beautiful light for the first time. They were not seeing the makeup. We watched as women experienced the special quality of her beauty for what was already apart of them. Therefore, the makeup looked extraordinarily natural and like it belonged. As Harold photographed all of these faces for my own study, we both grew steadily aware that this was something women needed and that I needed as well. Something the mainstream cosmetic industry clearly was not providing. Harold gave me the support to be faithful to this calling. He carried the entrepreneurial bravery for both of us as we pursued the first Amy Head products and the first Amy Head Studio in 1987. 

Today, the business has extended to our daughter MacKenzie. Living in Nashville, TN, she has started working with us to grow and nurture this brand to reach its true potential. We are all excited to see what that will be."
