How did you get your start in the beauty industry?
Beauty was not my thing at all. Out of high school, I started doing an internship at a hair salon. That kind of sparked it all. However, I wasn’t into everything beauty, but I started doing eyebrows, waxing brows, and it went from there. I just kind of built on that and stayed within that industry of aesthetics.
You previously worked for Anastasia Beverly Hills. What was that experience like?
I worked at one of the flagship stores in Durham, North Carolina. I already had the background experience waxing brows. If you know her method, she uses stencils, so that was very different because I’ve always done freehand. I think stenciling is good for people just starting out. I met with some of the people on her team, and they gave me support with the line and from her. I try to think of everything as a learning experience. That was the last person that I worked for before, you know, working for myself.
