Hi, I'm Marva!

I just love hair & makeup!

It's what's on the inside that counts.

Freelance hair and makeup artist Marva Stokes of Carson, California has been on fire for the beauty industry since the age of seven when her clients only included Barbie dolls. From kitchen beautician to licensed cosmetologist, her dreams are now a reality. Marva is a life learner who graduated from Aveda Institute, Los Angeles. She continuously takes courses as time permits. Her hard work, strong work ethic and great attention to detail has set her on a path to greatness. Marva’s work includes but is not limited to working with extension companies, TV networks, music videos, and film.


​Marva is passionate about what she does but has a very special place in her heart for the community and charitable events. Marva dedicates part of her time to volunteering projects, one which is very dear to her heart "The Royal Spoil." This non-profit focuses on delivering beauty and hygiene products to women and children who were part of the sex trafficking trade/experienced domestic violence. The Royal Spoil also educates young teens and women about self-love, hair care and makeup lessons, as well as introducing them to opportunities available to them in cosmetology and the beauty industry.

                   Marva has vowed to live out loud in her passion and to never settle!
