What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Face Forward treats each client with respect and genuine care for their well being. I listen to their needs and personalize the facial to create a fresh, glowing look they desire. The face, neck and shoulder massage allows them time to heal the mind and body. This package truly awakens your face.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Caring for people comes natural, combining this with the dramatic results my facials, waxing & eyelash extensions produce was a no brainer. I truly care for each person and the result they are looking for is my mission. Everyone deserves to take care of themselves, if I can help, then I am happy.
What do you love most about your job?
I truly love meeting new people and allowing them the opportunity to explain their areas of concern. The best part is watching a client relax and take in everything I give. Seeing the results from the facial and waxing is amazing. Helping people shed dead skin and glow is my top priority. I Love it!
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
My clients trust me and know the results from the facial last and don't go unnoticed. When they get compliments, it fills me with joy knowing they feel good about their appearance. When a client leaves in a relaxed fog I now I have helped someone have a better day. People deserve to be pampered!
After spending a handful of years crunching numbers for her family's car business, Doran Poma decided to pursue a passion for skincare that she developed as a teenager. Since completing beauty school in 2006 and becoming a licensed aesthetician in 2007, Doran has used her expertise to clear the complexions of numerous clients, including a woman in her 50s who'd been dealing with acne since her teens. This April, Doran began running her skincare operation out of a gut-rehabbed salon, where she uses phytomer and Jan Marini products to pamper clients with specialized facials designed to treat conditions ranging from acne and discoloration to wrinkles in the time-space continuum.
