Brittany Hartnett, Lic. Cosm. , Aesthetic Provider
Brittany Hartnett, Lic. Cosm. has been a skincare specialist at skinfo® since 2021. Additionally, she is now also an Aesthetic Provider at Advanced Dermatology.
Brittany graduated from Portland State University in Oregon with an undergraduate degree in psychology. She then immediately followed her true passions by attending Regency Beauty Institute where she graduated 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 headed to Walnut Creek, CA to complete an internship under Logic’s Gina Khan, specializing in hair, specifically color theory and correction. Soon after completion, Brittany decided to move back to Illinois, where she enrolled in continuing education classes focusing on complex transformations utilizing special FX makeup and body painting. Her superior talent in this area awarded her recognition with Mehron makeup featuring her artistry at America’s Beauty Show. Brittnay’s talent facilitated her with the opportunity to freelance on-set hair and makeup services to some of Chicagoland’s top musical and acting talents.
In 2018, Brittany decided to leave her corporate job working in IT sales to pursue her talents full time. Working for both ULTA and Sephora, she focused on product knowledge and acquired training through numerous skincare, makeup, and haircare brands. Brittany became a self-proclaimed “product junkie” absorbing knowledge of ingredients commonly used in popular skincare products, as well as their function. Brittany is a firm believer in ingredients with a purpose, even when it comes to high-impact pigments in makeup. She believes that good skin is the base of any great makeup look.
Living with Lupus, Brittany has experienced many dermatologic side effects. Healthy skin truly comes from inside out and she now stresses that notion to all her patients. Drawing from her experiences, Brittany has made it her mission to help patients find the best skincare, solutions, and in-office procedures for their individual health concerns. Discussing one’s concerns in regards to personal appearance can be an intimidating or emotional ordeal, so she strongly believes in making patients feel safe and secure while addressing their concerns in a manner that works for them, knowing that lifestyle is a big component with compliance and results. Brittany has procured additional training and certifications for the following treatments: Diamond Glow®, Hydrafacial®, and Keravive™.
When she is not providing facials at Advanced Dermatology, Brittany freelances complex makeup and hair services. Other hobbies of Brittany’s include baking, roller skating, attending punk concerts, watching horror movies with her two cats, Creature and Zero, and video gaming on her Playstation!
