How would you describe yourself?
“Like a chaotic mother who loves good food, is passionate about her work, keeps developing with a positive outlook and takes life with a touch of humor.”
So where did your passion for eyebrows come from?
“At the age of thirteen I started plucking eyebrows. I found it so fascinating that I continued to experiment endlessly with makeup and eyebrow shapes and was always up to date with the latest trends. Yes, I too had the thin line that Christina Aguilera walked around when she was just starting her career, luckily hairs are growing back again … Nowadays it gives me a lot of satisfaction if I can make other women happy with my advice and treatments, which also ensures that my passion for the profession remains to grow.”

And that also makes it a bit exciting for the customer. ”

Which statement from a customer will you always remember?
“I am often told that they are very happy with the result and that they regularly receive compliments about their eyebrows in their environment. But once someone said:” First I had someone else do my eyebrows, but that was nothing special. This “This is really special. I will definitely come back for this.” Another customer once said: “Since I have been coming to you, I have been increasingly aware of my appearance and eyebrows. From now on you`re the only one allowed to touch them” It’s great to hear that I have been able to give my clients the confidence to raise their eyebrows. After all, a brow specialist works just like the hairdresser. Once you’ve found a good one, you stay. ”
What else would you like to learn?
“I would like to learn more about brow mapping, so that it becomes even easier to create clean lines and achieve the perfect result.”
How do you see your future?
“Recently I not only have a beauty salon in Etten-Leur, but also a makeup studio. Here I am planning to give workshops and courses. My work is now very varied and I want to keep it that way. I hope that I will only grow. A larger space, more people inspire. And I hope that my daughter wants to stand next to me in the salon later on. That would be great.”
