pep in your step

We’ve all been there. Taking the chance of letting someone new wax your brows. Lying there in suspense, you wonder...Does she know what she is doing? Did she REALLY listen to what I said? It feels like she is taking off a lot...oh god, is she taking off too much? You hold your breath with anticipation as you glance into the mirror and then it comes--the sweet feeling of relief and joy. You feel happy and quite beautiful. Nothing beats that post-treatment high! This is my passion. Whether you are looking to redefine your eyebrows or brighten your complexion, you will always leave my studio with a little extra pep in your step.

did you say 10 minute brazilian?!?

Unfortunately, most of us have also experienced the complete opposite--your enthusiasm is suddenly dashed as you look into the mirror and something has gone drastically wrong. Your eyebrows are too thin, your esthetician got extraction-happy, or you have patches of hair left behind after a wax. This is where knowledge, experience and communication makes all the difference. Before I was an esthetician, I was a timid client with a smile and a nod, but fortunately that has made me a very inquisitive service provider. If you come in with a desired expectation, I will listen to you, map out a plan of action and explain how we will reach that goal.

The skin is the largest organ in the body, people! There are a lot of components in action (so cool!). Frightfully, in the state of Utah, microblading technicians are not required to have knowledge about the skin--its layers, its functions, possible contraindications, universal precaution, bloodborne pathogens, cross contamination, and blood spill procedure. As a licensed Master Esthetician with over 12 years of experience, I am well-versed in all things skin--I know it, I love it, and I want you to love it too! 

Oh yeah and when it comes to waxing--that’s my longest running passion and quickest moving service. Who wants to be spread eagle and have hairs ripped from your “intimate areas” for over 30 minutes? Insert “shudder” and utter discomfort here. If the look you’re going for is full-on forest nymph or to be as smooth as the Silicon slopes, I’ll get you waxed in under 15 minutes!

me

You place a lot of trust in me so it's only fair that you know who I am. I am California-born, but Utah has claimed my heart. I fell in love with the mountains and people and made my home here in Salt Lake City in 2014. Beauty ninja by day, aspiring artist and coffee fiend by night. When I’m not microblading + waxing, you can find me getting brunch at Publik Kitchen, coffee with friends at Rose Establishment, hiking with my loyal Goldendoodle Finn, or getting b-girl lessons from my breakdancing engineer boyfriend, Max.

Kirby exceeded my expectations. I could not have been more happy with the results. It has always been a struggle to take care of my brows for me (over picking and stuff) but I feel like I have sexy brows now! I’m more confident and convinced that everyone needs to get their brows done now. I’m excited to go back for touch ups not only for my brows but because Kirby is so fun and lovely to be around. She’s a mix of badass and kindness all in one beautiful soul.

Kirby did my brows about 6 weeks ago and they have healed so nicely and look bomb! I’m going to be going in for my touch up pretty soon and I’m very excited for the final results. She has an artist’s eye and notices even the smallest details. Getting microbladed can be really scary. But I can say that I wasn’t even the slightest bit scared. (Other than if it would hurt, which it doesn’t) she takes such good care of her guests!
