About US

Hi, I’m excited you’re here! My name is Nydia, it’s like Lydia but with a “N” and I’m the one you’ll find behind the treatment chair. Raised in Memphis, Tennessee, but I came to Texas as soon as I could. I started my career in the beauty industry in 2003 working for a well known department store make up counter. Life took me on a lot of little detours in those years and after working in different office settings and only doing beauty on the side I decided to make my passion a long term career and completed cosmetology in esthetics school the summer of 2013. I have over 10 years experience and have cared for hundreds of faces. 

My specialties are corrective facial skin care, lash lifts, and brow shaping. I am professionally certified in anti-aging treatments, lash lifts, customized brow tinting, waxing services, dermaplaning, microdermabrasion, hydrodermabrasion, oxygen-infusion, at-home maintenance systems, and more.

As an esthetician and beauty practitioner, I aim to make clients feel and look like the best version of themselves.
