Ceo and Makeup Artist

Hello Gorgeous! My name is Markita and I am extremely excited to meet you!  I have been in the beauty industry for over 10 years. I went to Paul Mitchell Cosmetology College, where at the age of 20, I received my Cosmetology License. Once I graduated, I was blessed to have worked at salons and beauty brands like Mac, Clinique, and Kiehl's. By 2018, I had my first major Fashion Makeup Publication in the worldwide Lucy Magazine. In 2019, I worked with a team from People Magazine to create a documentary for the arthritis drug Enbrel. Also, in 2019, I was elated to be selected as a makeup artist for the 20th Anniversary Latin Premios de la Radio Awards. From 2018-2020, I worked at two syndicated tv stations: Estrella Tv station and CW33. 

 I created a community where other women could come together and find their true beauty, through makeup lessons, facials, or just getting dolled up for a ladies night out. The power of knowing our true beauty is one of the greatest gifts we can give to ourselves.

Hair Stylist

Hi, I am Deborah Knighton, CEO of DK Stylez. I am a native of New Orleans and I have been in the industry for over 20+ years. I specialize in transformations and healthy hair. I get asked…..”why am I a hairstylist?” Simple, “With a single conversation and a skilled touch you can start the shift of positive change.” I love transformation and pride myself on keeping the integrity of my clients hair.


I love the beauty industry because who doesn’t want to help others feel and look beautiful?! I love creating a different look for each client and making them feel unique. I enjoy doing all types of cuts and color! This ever changing career has allowed me to offer something new and exciting to my beautiful clients. The continuing education is the fuel to my passion. Seeing my clients smile is truly priceless!


Life is a glam room and beauty is a one size fits all. I believe a great blow out can glam your day! I am most passionate about making clients look and feel amazing while having the ability to be creative at the same time. I have a love for blonding, fantasy colors, textured hair/waves, haircutting and much more.
