I have been an aesthetician since 1995. My career in beauty began at Kanebo Cosmetics Co. Ltd. in Japan. I worked as a Chief Beauty Counselor from 1995 to 2000, developing my skills in the areas of make-up application, hair styling, and skin counseling. I particularly focused on learning various facial methods.
In 1997, on a business trip to New York, I learned techniques in blending aroma therapy with skin care treatments. While on this trip, I was amazed by how truly cosmopolitan New York is. Immediately I noticed how different Western skin types are from the Eastern skin types I was accustomed to treating back in Japan. I was intrigued by the differences, and decided that I wanted to bring my talents West.
In 2000, I left Japan, and spent a year in Canada working as a make-up artist with M.A.C. Cosmetics and as a make-up artist and hair stylist for UBC University Film Productions.
One year later, in 2001, I moved to New York. Since that time, I have worked as an aesthetician at various spa locations in Manhattan. I have specialized in facials, waxing, and eye beauty treatments.
In August 2008 I started my own venture, Mist Beauty. I look forward to sharing my experience and providing my customers with a service that will leave them feeling beautiful and relaxed in bothbody and mind.
Additionally, from 2011 to 2012 I worked as the lead facialist, eyelash colorist, and waxing specialist at Shibui Spa at the Greenwich Hotel. In that capacity, I was also responsible for developing the spa's facial treatment protocols.
