What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
As an Encinitas local, my passion is to make clients feel at home and comfortable while in the salon.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I practiced as a gemologist for over 10 years, then found my calling when opening Heaven Healing to make a positive difference in the day-to-day lives of those I meet.
What do you love most about your job?
There is no feeling like that of helping a client look and feel his or her best. From every brow wax to PCA peel, I can see the positive changes I am able to help people make. I love everything about my new career.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
A woman I consider to be my very first client jumped off the table at first glance of her newly designed brows and exclaimed their perfection. I take great pride in my artistry and will forever remember that compliment and carry the positivity to each client I meet.
Sugar, lemon, and water might not be the first things that come to mind when you think of hair removal, but these three natural components are all that the staff at SugarCoated Skincare need to gently remove unsightly strands. Led by Kristin Fennema, a massage therapist, aesthetician, and sugaring specialist, staff performs sugaring services to get rid of unwanted hairs all over the face and body of male and female clients. The sugar serves as a natural exfoliant, leaving skin silky smooth and removing even short hairs.
Kristin and her team also pamper clients with services such as personalized massages and antioxidant facials that incorporate kiwi, lemon, or pomegranate. In all the spa’s services, staff work to nourish the skin, leaving it feeling rejuvenated and craving an after-dinner mint.
Minda Shreve has a way with wax. As a licensed aesthetician and the owner of Simply Skin-Sational, she deftly removes bothersome fuzz from skin with well-practiced skill and a nurturing demeanor. Although she can shape eyebrows, smooth legs, and clear upper lips with ease, her specialty is Brazilian waxing, leaving nether regions smooth and expertly maintained. In addition to waxing, Simply Skin-Sational offers a variety of facial treatments to cleanse the skin, even skin tone, and minimize the signs of aging, allowing you to drink from five straws in public without feeling shame.
