Meet John and Hannah

John

As a first-generation American Queer, I always struggled with finding who I was in this world. Living in a Mexican Household, I always feared not being loved and accepted by my mother! My entire family was and is 100% supportive in what I am doing and who I’ve become.

My journey with makeup couldn’t be any more perfect in my eyes. I was fresh out of high school not knowing what I wanted to do exactly, my beautiful and loving Denise Arroyo introduced me to makeup and its beautiful art form, I am so grateful for her and always will be. I immediately fell in love with it and went to Walgreens the following week and spent $350 on all sorts of products. I have never looked back since.

Working in Retail at the beginning of my makeup journey was everything to me. I quickly started falling out of love with the beauty counter jobs, I wanted more than just selling products and doing the everyday brown eye look, I wanted to be a part of something greater. I had made my decision to quit my job as a beauty Advisor and move to California with my older brother by the end of the month. Within that time frame of about 3 weeks, I had the amazing opportunity to Interview with Prados Beauty. It was exactly what I was looking for and more.

I moved up to Las Cruces, New Mexico and now I’m in a Place where I am Free to express my creativity and I get to learn About my indigenous roots and where my ancestors came from. I am Grateful to be able to help amplify indigenous peoples' voices and our cultures every day in and out of my workspace.

We Are proudly Indigenous Unapologetically Beautiful.

Hannah

Ya’at’eeh my name is Hannah Manuelito, a Dine photographer from Ganado, Arizona. Growing up I always gravitated towards creative activities that allowed me to explore my Dine culture. After highschool, I went to Arizona State University and obtained my Bachelors of Fine Arts in Photography. While studying I connected more with my Dine roots, infusing every project with different traditional teachings I have learned from my family. I graduated with my BFA and more confidence in who I am as a Dine woman. 

The past couple of years, I have been working with various Indigenous owned brands, bringing their visuals to life. I understand how important it is to have their cultural ideations in the forefront of their brands. 

In January 2021, I began my journey with Prados Beauty as their VP of Marketing and Operations. There is so much growth happening and I am truly honored to be part of the Prados family.
