I love the BOOST mask from Somme- it smells amazing, and leaves your skin so smooth.

We also carry Revitalash and Revitabrow to help with those not so full areas-I use them and am completely obsessed!

If I wasnt an esthetician I would be a stay-at-home-Mum.

Meeting such wonderful and diverse people, whether it be a teen who needs help with problem skin or a busy Mum who needs to ‘clean-up’ & relax for a few minutes – Our clients are truly the best and it is my pleasure to help them feel relaxed and beautiful, no matter what service they are getting.

what are some of your favorite skincare products @ the wax bar?

I am a big fan of Dermalogica, I always have been. They have been in the industry for many years and have something amazing for everyone. A few of my favorites are the Solar Defense Booster (SPF 50) – an essential part of everyones skin care, Thermofoliant – an amazing heat emitting exfoliator, that works just as well as it feels and last but not least the Essential Cleanser which is a great all-round product for almost every skin type

what do you love about the wax bar?

I love coming to work at such a beautiful spa everyday and knowing that I’m working with such an amazing staff. We all love what we do, take pride in offering the best service possible, and support each other. I couldn’t ask for a better work environment.

what is the best thing about your job?

The best thing about my job is the interactions I have with my clients. You never know why someone is getting the service they’re getting, and I love hearing about their lives and helping them feel beautiful. It’s amazing the sense of relief you can give someone just by doing something as simple as a lip wax. I’m also a little OCD, so waxing is the perfect career for me!

what are some of your favorite skincare products @ the wax bar?

Tend Skin for waxing aftercare. It’s amazing how using it consistently can help prevent and heal ingrown hairs. Second would have to be Dermologica Intensive Eye Repair. I think that eye cream is one of the most underrated skin care products, yet it’s so important. TWICE A DAY PEOPLE!

if you weren’t working @ the wax bar, what would you be doing?

I would be a stand up comedian, a baker, a full time dog foster parent, or a powerhouse lawyer.

what else should we know about you?

I’m an old soul, I love the good ole days, fashion, music, etc… In addition to being an esthetician, I’ve been a bartender for the last 13 years. I’ve tried to quit, but I still keep one shift a week because I love it. Most of my free time is spent cooking, laughing, listening to old country music, and taking care of the people I love, including my dog, Kevin.

what are some of your favorite skincare products @ the wax bar?

Tan Towels! I won’t use any other tanning product, these have been my weekly go-to for several years! No streaks, no mess, just a beautiful & natural-looking tan! I also love the entire Dermalogica line because it can be customized for any skin type. And I just started using RevitaLash- I can’t believe how long my lashes are because of it!
