A Message from Mariam

I’ve been around & in a salon setting for over 25 years with my mother being a cosmetologist. I watched her structure eyebrows, color, cut, & style hair, bringing a new life to what was dull & needing attention. Her expertise & intuition at work giving just the right look to the client at hand was an art form mastered hands-on. As innate as that was, I found myself thinking more & more about what beauty really means rather than just the short-termed visible changes we are accustomed to believing in. This brought me to forms of self-care & rituals all around the world that revitalizes our presence from the inside out. Many of my travels to the east cultivated these findings.

I found myself intrigued with a deep interest in skincare. Growing up I was determined to have healthy, dewy, pretty skin conveyed all across magazines & tv. How was I cursed with parched skin, acne, uneven skin tone & dullness while others simply glowed using nothing but h20? I found myself trying different dermatologists & medicines, frustrated listening to everyone’s suggestions & homemade solutions, unconfirmed with any education following misleading information, time & money wasted. This lead me to believe that I can make a difference in understanding what’s needed & delivering results.

Graduated from Mitchells Academy in Esthetics in 2006. Worked my way into Ayurvedic skincare loving the natural herb ingredients used to treat skin issues without harsh chemicals. Stumbled across different lines from local small-batch products to big corporate brand lines. I approached skincare as part of something interconnected by reference to the whole. With that in mind, I believe stress, diet, exercise, nutrition & sleep are a vital part of what leads your skin into feeling & looking it’s very best.

My promise & purpose is simple. It is to get you at your optimal level of success with skincare provided as customized as you are. Aligned with serene vibes, backed by years of expertise carefully curated on a matter very close to the heart, the skin we’re in.
