the LONG VERSION
Pretty Bird was founded in a moment of inspiration. After beauty school, I found myself feeling like the skincare side of my license just wasn’t as exciting as waxing. I was great at waxing. I loved that there is no room for subjectivity, which suits my perfectionist ways much better than hair styling. (I started out as a cosmetology student.) Plus, I had a really terrible chemical peel experience, and the idea of having to cause injury to the skin in hopes it would heal even better, also called “peel and heal” in skincare, never made a bit of sense to me.
After school, I worked exclusively in waxing, quickly becoming regional trainer for a popular chain. I had an incredible, fast paced few years there before getting the itch to do more.
Then, in the summer of 2013, I was finally able to attend a skincare convention (I’d been too busy at work either waxing or training girls to wax to attend in previous years) and learned about Dr. Ben Johnson and Osmosis Skincare. The skincare myths Dr. Ben addressed in the classes I took were exactly the myths that I had never quite been able to understand. How could we combat visible aging by damaging and drying out our skin? Dr. Ben developed Osmosis, and it is the first skincare line to have the combination of irrefutable science and holistic philosophy that makes sense to me. Six weeks later, Pretty Bird opened.
Pretty Bird grew out of my intense desire to share the philosophy that skin is an external indicator of internal wellness, along with a drive to finally be able to help all of my waxing clients with a full compliment of esthetic services.
As of February 2014, Meg is also certified in Oncology Esthetics (COE), meaning she has been trained and certified by an international organization to safely perform treatments for clients undergoing cancer treatment. The mission statement for Touch for Cancer’s Oncology Esthetics program is: We are committed to educating and empowering estheticians/skin care therapists to impact the lives of cancer patients with compassion and healing. If you, a friend, or family member is currently undergoing treatment, please call for further information on service offerings and options. I would love to help – with your skincare needs or simply relaxation and self-care.
