Hi, I'm Milian Bonillo, an internationally published hairstylist, makeup artist, and cosmetologist, based in Chicago.

As an artist working in the beauty field, every job I do is centered around a client's big event, be it a wedding, professional portrait, magazine editorial or ad campaign. My goal is not only to provide a beautiful and appropriate for-the-job application, but to be a professional and supportive team member to the client, and project at hand. 

When not busy working behind the chair, I'm writing about beauty, sharing insights with a professional perspective, on products and more. I'm also the owner of Chicago Styled Wedding Shoots; a group of professional vendors and enthusiasts, who love collaborating on inspirational styled weddings.

When not creating, I enjoy volunteering for charitable organizations, including Flashes of Hope, Help Portrait, The YWCA Women's Shelter, Fairy Godmother Foundation, and The Pedersen-McCormick Boys and Girls Club.
