Her Approach:

We believe in comfort...

To us comfort includes being accessible, inclusive, private, and pristine.

We aim to provide peaceful and immaculate services for you.

 

Our sanitation practices have been a priority from the beginning and in light

of the COVID-19 situation we are taking extra measures to

provide our clients with peace of mind.


We specialize in all artificial nails, manicures pedicures,

senior foot care, facial and body waxing, and brow and lash tinting.

We also provide makeup lessons, and special occasion makeup - including wedding and graduation.


As skin care as a whole is a top priority we

believe in the importance of educating our clients.

If you have skin care and makeup questions we offer

consultations/lessons to teach you how to shop for your needs,

use what you have, and get value when you shop.

  Katherine's  philosophy on skincare products and makeup

has evolved and changed over the years.

She has worked with many lines and continues to educate

herself on new skincare products and makeup lines.

Though her philosophy on skincare products and makeup has evolved she believes most

people don't have unlimited beauty dollars but do deserve value for their dollar.

--------

"I can identify the clients needs, their price point, identify what

they need to buy or shop with them or for them.

And if its makeup, teach them 

exactly how to use it to highlight their features!"
