Brandi is that friendly face you will see bobbing in and out of treatment rooms, sharing her skincare expertise with clients and greeting guests as they enter into her charming little spa. Brandi began working here at Esthetiques in 1999 right out of esthetician school. She quickly threw herself into the mix as the new esthetician, and soon after took the opportunity to buy the business and begin her career as a spa owner. Many clients have watched Brandi grow here as a spa owner and as a person, coming back week after week to the comfortable and relaxing environment that she prides herself in creating. She connects very well with her clients, and it is reflected in their loyalty. In addition to an emphasis on client care and a laid-back environment, Brandi is always researching the latest in skin care technology and health making her spa the ideal place to beautify yourself and nurture your face. She is expertly trained in virtually every aspect of skin care and aesthetics, always searching out the most effective treatments and making sure she offers the best possible results. She is also a product wiz, able to look at a person’s skin and recognize just what they need to get that face into shape. In 2008, Brandi opened Esthetiques Skin Spa2, a sister spa in Oxford, MS, bringing her style of pampering to the thriving community. Brandi’s commitment to her spas and her clients is what has built, maintained, and grown her business year after year, and the proof is in her clients’ skin and the smile on their face when they look in the mirror.
In september 2013, Brandi was chosen by Intraceuticals (an austrailian based skin care company) to pull backstage duty at Mercedes- Benz fashion week in New York City, administering oxygen infusions to models before walking the runway! her 1st stop was the s/s collection of Yigal Azrouel (an amazing Israeli designer with sleek and sophisticated styles) and then on to the ever so fabulous Betsey Johnson show to treat her models who are fun and whimsical just like her designs! What an amazing experience and it all came right back into our Esthetiques doors!
Today, Brandi has closed her doors in Oxford, MS after 5 wonderful years and is now just concentrating on perfecting and expanding her Memphis based business and being a new mom to her precious daughter! How sweet is that?
Kate Umsted became a member of our spa family in 2006.
Kate was highly recommended by a close friend as she would certainly fit the profile of what Esthetiques has been looking for. Kate blew us away upon 1st meeting her and continually impresses us. Kate 1st became interested in skin care as a young child, receiving mud pie facials as a young girl… Kate realized early on that she liked what these skin treatments can do. #1 she liked how her skin looked with a tan (hence the airbrush tanning that Esthetiques has to offer). And #2 she actually liked having skin treatments. Now, Kate has grown up and followed her dreams and has witnessed 1st hand how much skin treatments have evolved. She now prides herself on learning new skin treatments and on perfecting the treatments she already believes in. Kate has an amazing touch and a very caring personality. Kate is a perfectionist; no matter what skin treatment she is doing, she is doing it well! She recently joined us in Dallas to perfect her oxygen facelift technique. Kate is a beautiful person, as well as an amazing esthetician.
Today, Kate enjoys being an amazing mother of 2 sweet girls and continues to take excellent care of her clients! This proves quite easy for Kate (the perfectionist and multitasker)
Lexis has been with us for quite sometime! Starting out at our Oxford location, while getting her degree at Ole Miss, Lexis followed in her big sister’s footsteps. However, her big sis got hitched and whisked away to never never land.. somewhere in the foothills of Texas! But, Lexis needs no introduction, if you’ve ever visited Esthetiques in the past 4 years or simply read a post or like on fb, we are quite sure you know Lexis by all the rave reviews she gets from social media! Yes, she is very talented and apparently an eyelash extension superstar! But, that’s not all Lexis does, she is very skilled and passionate about her work. She loves transforming people and helping to bring their best features forward. She pays close attention to detail and is very meticulous. She is a Herron just like her sister and they have serious work ethics, she is extremely dedicated and focused and we are ecstatic that she has chosen Esthetiques as her career home! We can’t wait for you to come in and meet Lexis, she will certainly surprise you with her knowledge and dedication, once you are in her treatment room you are sure to have some funny moments and some serious new beauty! Lexis is a superstar around here for a million reasons, we cant wait for you to experience just a few!
