My mom and dad are from France but I was born here in sunny Los Angeles and was raised in Venice.
I love waxing and hair removal, but my earliest encounter with the beauty industry isn’t glamorous or clever. I was six and I got into my mom’s depilatory mousse, which I thought was a hair product, which I applied to my hair. My complaints about a burning sensation on my head, coupled with the smell had me dragged into the shower by mom. The results were a patchy “Mr. Bigglesworth” nouveaux cheveaux that I had to wear to school, but I’m French and as most of you know, we lead the world in the latest hairstyles – but I wouldn’t recommend this one to anybody!
That first experience didn’t stop me from going to school to get my esthetician license. When I had my license in hand I went to work at a spa in Los Angeles. Most clients wouldn’t let me give them a bikini wax because they were all going to a place called “Queen Bee” that apparently did the best and most painless Brazilians in Los Angeles. I wanted to check this place out so booked an appointment for a bikini wax. I got lucky and had Alex as my waxer (she now runs our Seattle location).
It was literally the best wax I had ever had – no pain, no sticky bits, and no irritation. I was smitten and asked her if she could get me a job. I had an interview with Jodi two days later and was hired within a week. VOILA! I had to relearn everything I knew about waxing and skincare. Jodi taught me her technique for Brazilian and body waxing and I’ve been utilizing those skills ever since. It is so refreshing to work in a place that feels like home. I love the energy at Queen Bee and it’s like one big family.
In my free time, I love to travel and take my dogs for long walks. I’m French so as you can imagine eating is my passion. If you asked my co-workers at Queen Bee what they love about me most, it’s that I’m constantly reminding them that it’s time to eat!
I hope to see you at Queen Bee Brentwood or Culver City soon – and if you ever need to know which restaurants to eat at, I’m your bee!
