My Name is Alexis. I am a 30 year old from Chicago and I have been in skincare since 2009. I had recently started my own business LexSthetique Spa & Waxing Studio, after finally realizing its time to follow and pursue my dreams as a skin care specialist. I overall enjoy everything about the Esthetics world, however my first love is definitely waxing. I love watching waxing videos and learning new ways to make the waxing experience better for my clients. I am constantly educating myself and doing research as well as taking CE classes to make sure I stay up to date with all the latest techniques and protocols. Starting @Lexsthetique has been my dream, being a great Esthetician is my goal!! Starting from nothing and being a single mom is definitely what pushes me!
When the pandemic hit, it definitely was a wake up call to me and the industry was just so unbalanced and made me feel like I needed to take a dive deeper and find a way to stay afloat. So I began a student teaching program to gain my instructor license. As an instructor I can take on a different role in esthetics, and change lives as well as make future estheticians. This is now what I have become most passionate about and in the meantime will be focused on teaching and waxing still on the side.
I want everyone in this industry to never give up and keep pushing forward no matter how many setbacks or how many people try to block you from your goals!
