A: My route of ending up in the beauty industry is probably much different than most. My background is in psychology, and after getting pregnant with my first daughter, I decided I was going to be a stay-home mom. That didn’t last long as I had been breaking out, and so I first became aware of my passion for skincare specifically and makeup when I developed adult acne in my late 20s. I realized there were no great beauty shops that benefit me personally, so I decided I would open one.
I am beauty obsessed, so that helped, but really just research, determination, and a lot of passion got me to where I am. My love for makeup was always existent, and I love what I do. It’s extremely rewarding and it shows on my client’s faces.
Microblading is an amazing career. You seriously get to transform people's brows right in front of them and they will love you for it. I met an esthetician who completely fixed my skin within six weeks’ time! I was so inspired by the impact and positive change in my life that I decided to pursue skincare & beauty, went back to school and immediately started working for myself.
Q: Wao! That's really inspiring! Where do you find your creative inspiration?
A: Eyebrow trends come and go, from thin and sharp to bold and bushy à la Cara Delevingne and basically every other model who's been hot in the past few years. But the new eyebrow trend we can't get enough of is microblading, a tattoo technique that fills brows out or reshapes them by drawing on tiny lines that look like individual hairs.
Q: Very interesting. Your clinic is in Manhattan, right? What do you love about Manhattan?
A: New York has a way of giving me a feeling that I can accomplish anything I set out to do. There's no other city on the planet with an energy that can compete with it. The fast pace, the traffic, the hustle and bustle of the people, the 24-hour life, and the creative spirit make it one of the most vibrant places in the world. Manhattan is the place to be. It's diverse, it's beautiful, and I interact with so many new faces on the daily!
