My Story

One of my "why's" includes helping my customers feel good about themselves.  Aside from providing the actual service, this also means building relationships with those I serve.  In order to build rapport with you, I think it is important for me to share with you a little about who I am & how Boone Beauty Bar began.  Here goes...

 

 

Throughout my teens up until 2014, I battled drug & alcohol addiction.  After a series of monumental screw-ups, an overdose, detox, rehab & and a spiritual awakening, I decided to try sobriety. After treatment, I had several appointments with various medical providers to ensure that I had not done extensive damage to my body.  I had noticed that my skin was not looking so great, so I asked a physician about the issues that I was having. She informed me that the skin was the bodies largest organ and that I was likely still detoxing and getting rid of the harmful chemicals that I had put into my body for so long. I left puzzled, “our skin is an organ?”

 

This got me thinking a lot about what I had exposed my body to, both internally & externally. I should add that aside from being an alcoholic, I was also a recovering tan-o-holic. (I have always relished in the extra boost of confidence I’d feel when I had a little color on my skin). I began tanning at the ripe age of 14, against parental advice, and honestly enjoyed that 20 min of hot, sweaty solace while lying in that bed. I spent my summer days lathered in tanning oil as a lifeguard and when I wasn’t working at the pool, I was laying by one literally baking in 1 of my 2 personal favorite products; Crisco or baby oil.  The thought of this had me shook. 

For the first time (maybe ever), I began to see my body as a living thing, not just the shell that I walked around in. As I embarked on my health journey, I began to wear sunscreen for the first time in years and significantly cut down on the time I spent tanning. (I'd like to add that I love indoor tanning & it can be done safely if used in moderation but I'm an alcoholic & to say that I struggle with moderation would be the understatement of the century).

 

I felt fantastic, however because of my new-found skincare routine, I noticed that my pale exterior did not match the radiance in my soul.  I wanted to glow from the inside, out! So, I got an airbrush tan. I felt amazing and my tan was on point!  In October 2015 I began keeping a note in my phone about my idea for a sunless tanning business.  It was just an idea at the time.

 

Later in 20I5, I married my best friend & moved back up the mountain.  I noticed that there were not any airbrush specialists in the area & there is never really a "right time" to start a business, so a few years, 2 kids & several revised business plans later, I decided to jump head first into entrepreneurship & the beauty industry. I connected with a fellow boss babe in the Charlotte area who taught me most of what I know & she continues to mentor me on this journey.  I began as a mobile "spray tan girl" and worked evenings after my then full time gig as a case management social worker.  When I became fully booked and realized I may actually be onto something, I quit my "real" job and moved into a studio inside of Planet Tan.  Weeks turned into months, which turned into almost 2 years and in July of 2020, Boone Beauty Bar opened in a new location and is now home to Queen Glitter Nails & Cailtlyn Brooke Aesthetics.  Together we make the ultimate glam squad.  The rest is pretty much history. 

I am an Appalachian State Alum with a background in social work & mental health services (go figure). I am a native of Mt. Holly NC (for those of you scratching your heads, it's a suburb of Charlotte, just over that Gaston County line. I am married to my dream guy and have 2 of the boujeeiest babes you'll ever meet.  I live in the Boone area with my family which include my 2 frenchies, Ziggy & Snowflake Rose & cat, Brown Kitty. 

I am ecstatic to have the opportunity to make you feel beautiful from the inside, out!
