She understands that our lives are not promised but determined by a higher power. Losing her mother and having children of her own, she wanted to secure caring for her children. But also, realized the importance of self-care and finding time to look and feel beautiful from the inside and out.

In 2020, Katherine became certified as a Brow Artist, Nano Brow technician and microblading. She is one of few Nano Brows technicians in New Jersey. In addition, she is certified on color correction which allows revitalization to an old brows tattoo.

In 2022, Katherine was trained in Ombre Brows. She has mastered her technique which allows clients to have more options to enhance their brows.

Dayana is our newly hired team member. She joined our team in June 2022 as our Front Desk Receptionist while she prepares for her New Jersey Esthetician license. 
Dayana’s journey into the Aesthetics field started at an early age when she realized that her skincare was challenging. She made several visits to medical providers who also faced challenges in managing her skin due to the color of her skin. Dayana felt that she had to take action otherwise, she would be stuck with hyperpigmented skin affecting her psychological and physical being. A variety of options were explored, without producing the desired results.
Dayana’s concerns resonate with the normal challenges encountered by people of color. Hence, she made that conscious decision to attend beauty school. As a result, Dayana enrolled in Parisian Beauty Academy by Paul Mitchell and is a recent graduate.
Dayana has expressed her passion is to help people with their outer and inner beauty allowing them to feel beautiful inside and out. She also is passionate about one day of owning her own medspa.
