Natresha Glam U- RDU Cosmetologist and Make Up Artist


Natresha Glam U was created and founded by Natresha Moore, cosmetologist and make up artist, of Knightdale Nc. She currently services the RDU area for any hair or makeup needs ranging from special events to everyday styling for all women.

Natresha’s goal is to educate and give women a glamorous experience while they are in her chair. Being Glamorous is a state of mind and her brands motto is “being glamorous is simply believing you are”. This is a saying that she stands by when she provides every service.

This year will make three years in the beauty industry full time. However, the Glam U brand will be reaching 5 years as of April. This year is about offering her clients more. She has expanded the brand by creating “The Glam U Collection” hair and cosmetic products available soon on her online store. Products include edge tamer, bonnets, virgin hair, lip gloss, beauty blenders and more to come. The use of these products will allow clients basic necessities for at home use and ability to utilize the education provided from the chair. Natresha plans to continue to expand as her business grows and offer every client her absolute best.

Every woman should be as glamorous as they want to feel from the inside out.
