Brittany Hartnett, Lic. Cos.
Brittany Hartnett joined skinfo® in March of 2021, adding nearly a decade of beauty knowledge to our already exceptional team of licensed skin experts. Brittany graduated from Portland State University in Oregon with high honors and a Bachelors’ degree in clinical psychology. She then pursued her passion by attending Regency Beauty Institute and graduating with a license in Cosmetology in 2013.
Brittany strongly believes that to be an expert in her field, education and training must be continuous. After graduation, Brittany completed a hair internship specializing in color theory and correction under Logic's Gina Khan in Walnut Creek, CA. Brittany then decided to move back to Illinois, where she completed continuing education classes focusing on Special FX makeup and body painting. Her talent in this area awarded her recognition, with Mehron makeup featuring her artistry at America's Beauty Show. Furthering her extensive knowledge in skincare, she has worked for big-box retailers such as Sephora and Ulta.
Living with Lupus, Brittany has experienced many dermatologic side effects such as rashes, hair loss, and constant contact dermatitis. Drawing from her experiences, Brittany has made it her mission to help patients find the best skincare and solutions for their health concerns. She knows from experience talking about one's needs can be intimidating or emotional, so she strongly believes in making patients feel safe and secure while addressing their concerns.
When she is not working at skinfo®, Brittany freelances complex makeup and hair services. Other hobbies of Brittnay's include baking sweet treats, roller skating, attending punk concerts, watching horror movies, and video gaming!
