Q&A with Hollis Wright, Aesthetician at The French Twist
Tell us about your business.
I am a licensed aesthetician that has specialized in makeup applications and lessons. I like to consult about an individual's lifestyle and wardrobe preferences before creating their look. In today's busy world, I teach techniques and recommend products that are versatile, easy to apply, and long-wearing. I have many, many years of brow-shaping experience. I am convinced that the appropriate brow shape is a key ingredient to looking your best.
What makes your business stand out?
I love what I do, so that comes across to my clients during their service. I try to make the service as fun as it is educational. The products I sell have been selected because they are skin-beneficial and of superior quality.
What inspired you to start this business?
I love working with color cosmetics to enhance the appearance of my clientele and keep them up to date with trends.
What is your most popular offering?
I see many of my clients on a monthly basis for brow services, waxing, and dying. Many of the women I worked with when applying their wedding makeup are now bringing in their daughters, too. Besides this, I see clients twice a year for new makeup update lessons in the spring and fall. No one should get stuck in a makeup rut.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
One woman told me she left my chair feeling and looking so wonderful that she met her husband-to-be that very night. Another woman told me her husband took a look at her and said, "You look great, what did you do?" This was an extreme compliment, since he did not even notice her makeup—simply that she looked beautiful. That's what makeup should create for everyone when applied skillfully.
What’s your favorite part about your job?
The sparkle in someone's eyes when they look in the mirror and like what they see. Everyone loves the "reveal" or there would not be so many makeover shows on TV.
