Katie Hubert, LE is a Licensed Esthetician and native North Carolinian. Her interest in esthetics came to her, out of necessity, at an early age. Katie has always loved experimenting with simple natural ingredients. Whatever was in the pantry was at her disposal. You could usually find Katie in the kitchen experimenting with home remedies to soothe sunburn or to smooth hair follicles. Beauty salves and tinctures soon followed.
Katie made the commitment to see her passion through at Asheville/Buncombe Technological Institute where she received her esthetic technology certificate. She excelled in hair removal and grooming and makes efforts to improve her thoroughness and precision, daily. Katie is especially skilled with hard and soft wax and enjoys helping guests with underarm, bikini and Brazilian wax services.
Her wild and nomadic soul has taken her all over this country. Most recently her heart and family has settled in Asheville, North Carolina. Katie has become a true homebody in recent years. Mostly due to the birth of her sweet little daughter. If time allows, she take pleasure in binge watching television series, having a cool drink on her breezy patio and reading for both pleasure and information. She is a true lover of all things!
