Waxing & Facial Bee

I’m a mid western girl. I grew up in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I began college at Minneapolis College of Art and Design to study painting, and later transferred to Columbia College of Chicago where I finished my Fine Art degree. I love the arts, and I feel so peaceful when I get to create something from my experience of living in our world.

As a little girl I was fascinated by my grandmother’s beauty potions, and absolutely had to try them all! I remember waiting for her to come home from the beauty shop, where her stylist Queenie, had “set” her hair, and she was full of stories of the happenings about town. The world of beauty was so exciting to me.

After a few years of living in Brooklyn, New York, I moved to Los Angeles in 2007. Upon arrival, I had somewhat of an epiphany to go to beauty school and pursue my dream of esthetics. At Marinello School of Beauty I focused on skin care and the art of performing facials, but upon graduation I found myself waxing and tinting eyebrows and lashes. At first, I was a bit scared, but I soon realized that waxing is like painting, where each application is like a brushstroke, and tinting is my color palette. This was an amazing breakthrough for me, and I fell in love with brow make overs! Now, I look forward to combining healing, rejuvenating, result oriented facials with the art of brow shaping.

I love my job, and I feel grateful every day to be in this career, and now that I’ve landed at Queen Bee (my dream job!) I could not be happier to thrive in the hive! The ladies here are so inspiring to me, and I’m so excited to share recipes!

When I’m not at Queen Bee, you will find me laughing with my friends, painting, out at art openings and rock shows, or at home snuggling with my kitty cat “Miss Gracie.”
