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… 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.

Exfoliants! I’m in love with exfoliants and peels and the PCA peel line has the best in post-care for this wonderful service.

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

If money weren’t an issue probably traveling the world, going to school, making art and reading books.

what else should we know about you?

I am a nail art junkie, an avid reader and knitter (but not at the same time), that travel is on the top of my priority list after family, that I am an artist, an amazing cook and I care more than anything that every person who walks through the door gets the best service possible.

Oh man, a few! I love the Antioxidant Hydramist from dermalogica, it’s refreshing as well as it balances your skin using powerful peptides. I love the Somme transport pads because it’s filled with vitamins and glycolic acid to exfoliate and smooth the skin. Our PCA Peels are wonderful as well, especially if you’re looking for a quick treatment!

I’d be a veterinarian, I love all animals, especially dogs. Dogs love facial massages too!

Being part of such a strong, caring team of women, and working for a company has true compassion for their clients and the work they do. There is such a strong sense of community at all three locations, it feels great to help build it up!

I love getting to know clients and helping them pick out gifts for others or for themselves! It is a great way to learn about, and be inspired by each person’s tastes and personality.

what are your favorite skin care products from the wax bar?

The Collagen Hydrator and Protecting Hydrator Broad Spectrum SPF 30 from PCA have saved my skin entirely! I’ve never had another product treat my skin so wonderfully.

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

I would likely be working within the spa industry, I enjoy being a part of an industry that promotes self-care, especially centered around women. We face so many battles day to day, it is important to have spaces where we can unwind and take time to ourselves.

what else should we know about you?

I am an artist, you can see me out and about at artwalks throughout the city, or holed up drawing in coffee shops on rainy days. I’m all about unique fashion and beauty, so don’t be surprised if I ask you about what you’re wearing or if you see me sporting a slightly adventurous makeup look. I am always interested in what people are doing to express themselves and their personal style!
