Be Beautiful. Be Well. Be Whole.

About the Founder

Rashida LaShawn is the consummate professional. An utter visionary. A true artist and collaborator whose passion is GLAM:

God first, Grace, & Goodness,
Light, Love, & Luxury, Honey!
Abundance, Achievement, & Altruism
Mindfulness, Magic, & A Mission-Driven Purpose

Be Beautiful. Be Well. Be Whole.

The Highly Sought-After Multi-Hyphenate Beauty Artist and Entrepreneur fondly known to her clients at The Glam Doctor, Rashida Lashawn is the woman behind the gorgeous faces you see on television and film, in the courtroom, at the doctor’s office, and walking down the aisle.

“I felt glamorous and like I gained a sister and a life-long fairy
GLAM DOCTOR. ❤️❤️❤️❤️ She is the BEST.” - Rhonda Mo

Recently, Rashida was featured in a national commercial for At Thrive from Mastercard!

With an unmatched and tireless work ethic alongside 20 years experience as a makeup artist and beauty professional, Rashida LaShawn treats every client like her favorite client.

Because they are.

“You won’t find me prescribing the same beauty look or routine to every client. That’s not me! No two clients are exactly alike and no two looks will ever be exactly the same. I treat everyone who steps through my doors or logs onto my virtual class with TLC and pay close attention to every wonderful, unique detail about them. Together, we achieve the flawless, glam look their heart desires. My team and I do more than highlight cheekbones; we highlight the spark, personality, and natural beauty each client embodies. My passion is to bring my client’s best selves to the light and help them glow even brighter.

Once you’re in my chair, my class, or in the hands of my capable team, you’re gaining a dear friend for life.”


Rashida began her professional makeup artist journey in 2001 after being at her telecommunications job for 14 years her department closed and sent her job overseas. Stepping out on faith, she made the bold choice to answer the call God put on her heart to pursue a career in makeup and beauty full-time.

Thus, The Glam Doctor was born.

Since that life-changing decision, The Glam Doctor Beauty Brand has serviced an expansive and diverse national client list that ranges from household names to homemakers, has won multiple awards including Wedding Wire’s 5-Star Couple’s Choice Award, the Michigan Chronicles Best In Black award twice, Detroit’s Choice Award and has been a “4 The Best” winner several times , and has educated women from all walks of life: college students, fellow professionals, everyday women, and young women.


Client list includes; Vivica A. Fox, Lynn Whitfield, Alfre Woodard, Holly Robinson Peete, Omari Hardwick, and Laz Alonzo.

“When they go low, we GLAM high”

In 2017, Rashida once again forged new territory by launching two new arms of The Glam Doctor Beauty Brand: the Glam R Us mobile makeup and hair team in Atlanta and the Glam Doctor Studio, her home-base makeup studio in metro Detroit. She now has full-services teams in Nashville and Los Angeles as well.

Not neglecting her love for her community and her desire to see women empowered, Rashida created I AM SUPERB – a community outreach program designed to bolster confidence and self-esteem in young women. She also started the GLAM Empowerment Camp for teen girls during the Pandemic that helps girls with self-esteem and self-confidence.

As a beauty educator, Rashida teaches at Wayne County Community College, hosts virtual classes for everyday women to unlock their inner beauty, and teaches and consults professional makeup artists on their businesses, best practices, and providing extraordinary customer service to their clients.
