what do you love about the wax bar?

This is a fabulous place to work, we have an awesome, funny, supportive and professional team of women. I love the clean and classy environment and always changing boutique items. Oh, and we offer drinks! What’s not to love?!

what is the best thing about your job?

It is incredibly rewarding to connect with clients, even if it’s simply for a 10 minute brow transformation. I love the instant gratification of hair removal with the possibility of making some one feel better leaving than when they arrived.

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

I’m a huge fan of Revitalash, this amazing product really grows your lashes and makes them look long and luscious. I also love the universal brow pencil for filling in the sparse brow areas. I’ve noticed a marked difference in my skin since being a die-hard Dermologica user. I started using PCA eye cream and it is the best I’ve ever tried. Invest in your skin, you only have one face.

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

I’m really interested in nutrition and holistic body care so I’d probably go to school for nutrition counseling or naturopathy. I’d like to get my Reiki master certificate and practice that too. I love what I do now so no career change for me anytime soon.

what else should we know about you?

I was born and raised here in Seattle and outside of a stint in Israel, I’ve lived here my entire life. I graduated from Seattle University with a degree in Social Work/Sociology but found my calling when I went to esthetics school a few years later.

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.

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!
