I am from the small town of Weimar, Tx. As a child I always wanted to grow up and be something BIG, I wanted people to know my name. I moved to Waco in 2011 with big dreams to be the BEST here, there, anywhere. I attended the McLennan Cosmetology Program and fell in love with making people feel beautiful. After graduating in 2012, I immediately started working at a salon in my hometown. But that dream of being BIG took over, and I wanted something more. After months of debating, I decided to move back to Waco. I was still trying to find myself. And I did! I now feel like I am something BIG. I own my own salon, Cortny + Co, located in Waco Texas. I have the two best pups in the entire world, and my dream guy. And Waco is now my forever home.
I am a balayage enthusiast, confident color specialist, licensed permanent makeup artist, as well as a hair extension expert. I have been involved in the beauty industry for almost 10 years. I am most known for my “Habit Hand-tied” Hair extensions, and Microblading. I trained with well known hairstylist and beauty guru Chrissy Rasmussen of Habit Salon in Arizona, being the first stylist in Central Texas to offer “Habit Hand-tied” hair extensions. Perfecting my craft is what I always strive for, with over 240 hours of extensive training, I have become one of the most sought after brow artists in Waco.
Cortny + Co has been a dream of mine for years, and I always knew that if I wanted to accomplish it, it was going to take hard work and perseverance. I am beyond blessed and grateful for each client who has come through my doors and helped me make my dream come true. I see over 30 clients a week and knowing that each and everyone of them leaves feeling more beautiful and more confident about themselves is the greatest feeling of all. I was given this gift to give to others. And knowing that makes me feel BIG.
Cortny + Co was established in 2019 with one chair, and in 2020 in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, I expanded to a full service six chair salon. I hope to keep continuing to grow for many more years to come!

Powder/Ombre brows is a form of permanent makeup that help clients achieve more of a powder or ombre look instead of individual hair strokes. Powdered brows heal to look like a soft makeup and work great for clients with oily or mature skin. A favorite for anyone who wants to look like their brows are “filled in” at all times.
Combination brows are a combination of hair strokes and powder. This is by far my most favorite technique, as it still looks very natural when it heals. Combination brows are best for someone with already full but “patchy” brows. Great for any skin type!
These methods are Cortny's own techniques! Cortny does not offer microblading, only machine brows!
All permanent makeup appointments are priced the same at $600 total.
This includes a $50 non refundable security deposit, $450 at initial session + a $100 touchup fee.
