Miami Makeup artist Ayesha Munroe claims hundreds of dollars were stolen from her purse by a client during a session, and it was all caught on camera!
Munroe spoke up The shadow room and revealed that as she rolled back the cameras, she not only discovered how the money was lost, but that it was a calculated plan by her Chicago-based client, a woman named Alexia Spears, aka “PrettyLo,” and her friend was brought to the meeting.
PrettyLo also spoke to TSR about the allegations and denied her involvement in the robbery.

However, she shockingly admitted that her friend took the money and didn’t know if she planned to return it.
Munroe has since made a complaint to the police and does not intend to let this theft go unanswered.
Could this have been a case where one person acted alone? Or was it a well thought out plan to steal from the start?
The Shade Room examines…
The situation began after “PrettyLo” sent Munroe a friend request on social media. On November 4, “PrettyLo” appears with red hair for an appointment with a friend.
Everything seemed normal, they talked and laughed. Munroe says she went to show “PrettyLo” where the bathroom was after the session was over and her friend stayed behind.
“I watch them pack up their stuff but she kind of blocked it like where the (entrance) was, she took the money and then they left,” Munroe tells Justin Carter of TSR Investigates.
Money stolen in seconds as makeup artist cleaned up workspace, CCTV video shows
She said it happened within seconds of cleaning up her workspace. Surveillance video shows “PrettyLo” standing by the door while her friend fiddles with her bag before placing it on a carriage right next to Munroe’s handbag.
The friend is then seen taking money out of her purse and putting it in her own pocket.
“For the friend who didn’t do her makeup, she asked me, ‘Do you have any spaces later? I actually want to get my makeup done.’ I told her ‘Yes, I’ll be here all day.’ Mind you, after she took the money,” Munroe said.
Munroe says she wasn’t even aware her money was being stolen until later that day when she went to a store to buy some snacks.
She says she immediately messaged PrettyLo.

“I said to her, ‘Hey, your boyfriend stole money from my purse, can you please give it back to me before I have to call the police?’
Munroe goes on to say that “PrettyLo” told her it didn’t appear like her friend had stolen any money, it appeared that she had stolen lip gloss from her purse.
She added that she stayed nice to the two as she’s not entirely sure if “PrettyLo” is part of the plan or not.
But after rewatching the CCTV video, she spotted “PrettyLo” standing by the door as if disturbing her friend.
When she didn’t get her money back, Munroe posted the video on her professional social media pages, which is how she learned “PrettyLo’s” real name – Alexia Spears.
‘PrettyLo’ posts a video on social media essentially admitting to the crime and accusing Munroe of omitting purse
She then found the “PrettyLo” social media accounts, where she saw a video of Spears essentially admitting to the crime and accusing Munroe of leaving her purse for the stolen money.
“Well, suck it up, you’re a makeup artist. You get it back when you have it,” PrettyLo said in the video.
Munroe tells The shadow room that after watching the video she felt like there was nothing more she could do: “They already laughed in my face (about it).”
The shadow room reached out to “PrettyLo,” who said she had nothing to do with the stolen money.
“She made it look like I was the one who took it, but I’m clear in the video and I’m not taking the money or anything,” she said.
The client says she will return the money but does not apologize
She said her friend eventually admitted she stole the money, adding that she will give her the money back because “she’s not that type of person.”
However, she stopped apologizing. Meanwhile, Munroe says she’s standing by her faith, knowing she’ll get the money back and that “what goes around, goes around.”
