A company is an extension of its leadership. Trained in Paris, France, Pooja brings her training and expertise to the desert of Phoenix and the heart of Scottsdale, Arizona.
In 2010, she embarked on a quest for knowledge in the world of makeup artistry and hair styling, immersing herself in the artistic hub of Paris, France. In 2011, she took the bold step of starting her own business, Makiaj, which would go on to become a household name in the beauty industry. In 2016, Pooja’s business experienced exponential growth, a transformation that allowed her to cater to both the South Asian bridal population and modern Western bridal looks.

Then in 2021, Pooja’s vision took tangible form as she bought, renovated, and meticulously designed the official Makiaj headquarters in Scottsdale, Arizona, setting the stage for a new era of beauty and creativity.
Her remarkable influence reached beyond the beauty industry and extended into the world of entertainment, where she appeared on Bravo Tv’s Dancing Queens which showcases the intersection of talent, artistry, and the quest for excellence.
