what is the best thing about your job?

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.

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.

The idea of exploring the state of Washington was so exciting to me! It is seriously-gorgeous. My passion is to help people in any way that I can. I became an esthetician in 2013 and have worked very hard to get to where I am today. I love every aspect of my career.

I have been spending my time getting to know my lovely co-workers, writing, reading, working out, cooking, and getting really in touch with Netflix. Netflix is my jam. When the weather permits, I plan to do a lot of hiking and reading on the beach.

tell us a bit about yourself.

I recently relocated back to Seattle after several years away and am loving being back in the beautiful Pacific Northwest – rain or shine! I pride myself on being the best aunt I can be to my 9-year old nephew. I enjoy being out in nature by the water, reading a good book, or trying out a local pub or eatery with friends.

what do you love about the wax bar?

I appreciate who I work for and with, and I’m excited to get to know our clients. I value variety in a position- so working behind the scenes to assist the owner, as well as at the front desk with the clients, gives me a nice balance.

what are your favorite skin care products from The Wax Bar?

I’m trying out the Somme Eye Cream and so far, so good. It’s a new product to me so I need to give it more time, but I’ve heard wonderful things about it from our estheticians. I also like that we have so many cute boutique items!
