Welcome to Bella Persona.
With so many Estheticians to choose from, why should you see me? I could list my credentials; give you my pre-booking and client retention statistics. Some of my customers might tell you how meticulous I am with waxing and that I make it comfortable. They may mention my various treatments that enhance their looks and help them feel wonderful. But above and beyond technical prowess, people come to me because I treat them with respect and bring my best each time.
For 7 years I was the hiring and training manager of Esthetics at a high-end day spa. I didn’t hire people based on experience, their ability to sell, or level of skill - because I can teach and train until they get where they need to be. But I can't teach compassion, connection, or love. A great facial isn’t born from learning a series of steps. Memorable facials come from being present in the moment and letting intuition and intention take the lead - then the steps flow like a beautiful dance.
It was receiving my first facial that led me to become an Esthetician. I don’t recall anything about the service, but how I felt at the end – nurtured, as if she held my heart in her hands. It was so much more than just having masques put on my face. I've had few facials like that since, but I've given many just like it. I know how to care for people. I truly enjoy seeing people let go of stress, anger, worry – all with the touch of my hands. The work of an Esthetician is intimate and personal. It takes confidence, skill, and passion to do this work well. Luckily for me, I found my niche. I LOVE what I do!
