ESTHETICIAN / MAKEUP ARTIST

WHERE DID YOU RECEIVE YOUR FORMAL SALON/SPA EDUCATION? 

Hair Fusion.

WHEN/HOW DID YOU BEGIN WORKING FOR HAIR FUSION?

January 2016 with the new addition of Spa Services!

WHAT IS YOUR SPECIALTY and/or FAVORITE SERVICE TO PROVIDE?

I love them all- from relaxing facials to waxing. But my favorite has to be microdermabrasions.

HOW DO YOU KEEP LEARNING/PROGRESSING YOUR PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE?

Read, Read, Read, and listen. Take advantage of every class, mentor, information and hands on experience possible.

WHAT WAS THE PIVOTAL MOMENT FOR YOU, PROFESSIONALLY? WAS THERE AN “AHA” OR OTHERWISE IMPACTFUL MOMENT ALONG YOUR JOURNEY?

My pivotal moments was when one of my now favorite clients walked out from her facial, gave me a huge hug and gave wonderful compliments about the service she had just received. It made me feel so confident in my craft and want to succeed more than ever. Since that moment, I have continued my education, research and techniques to make my clients feel the absolute best they can every time they see me, for whatever service.

HOW LUCKY ARE YOU AND WHY? 

I’m blessed with three handsome, healthy, sweet and smart little boys that make me, their mom, the happiest mama on the planet.
