Who We Are
Afterglow Esthetics was founded on my passion for connecting and helping people. The satisfaction gained from being there on one’s most meaningful day is a gift and it never gets old. The state of relaxation when performing a facial or skin care service is just as rewarding.
Our approach to beauty starts with listening to our brides’ wants and concerns and then delivering what she has in mind in a fun way. It’s not about me, I am here to guide a Bride to their vision with elegance and tasteful hair & makeup.
When I first meet a future bride, I like to ask a lot of questions to get to know where they’re coming from. It’s important for me to understand their comfort level with makeup. I also want to understand their style and even their culture.
My background as an artist is from all over, but originally from photoshoots and TV, as well as working with musicians and actors for special events. At this point, I have seen it all and there is nothing I can’t handle. As I started to build a team and expand my practices I wanted them to reflect my level of range and expertise. My team and I pride ourselves on the ability to work on anyone, any age, gender, skin or hair type.
I want our clients to look stunning in a way that is not about the makeup and hair, a glow from within, but head-turning gorgeous, as a whole. We want people to wonder how it’s possible that she looks that good.
The beauty pro/client relationship is very interesting. We open up, connect and reveal ourselves to a perfect stranger. I love what I do because I get to meet people on the scariest, happiest, most memorable day of their lives, and it’s an honor!
