Esthetics is my passion. When I was a little girl in New York, I loved playing with my Mom's makeup. I wanted to go to beauty school right after graduating from high school, but I pursued my education first. I attended a community college in the Bay Area of California, while concurrently attending Cosmetic Techniques Makeup School. On weekends, holidays and summer vacations, you could find me working at Macy's Elizabeth Arden and Estee Lauder makeup counters.
My next stop was Santa Cruz. I fell in love with UC Santa Cruz during a campus tour and knew that was the place for me! I loved how diverse the campus was. Living in a multicultural, co-ed dorm in the Santa Cruz mountains overlooking the beach and boardwalk was a wonderful opportunity I'll always treasure. After graduating from UC Santa Cruz with a B.A. in Sociology, I turned my career focus from makeup to skincare, and completed esthetician school.
I eventually settled in the Central Valley and went to work as a self-employed esthetician. Trade shows and conventions are a blast to attend! I always learn something new and exciting, from how to treat skin conditions to the latest technology, product lines and ingredients. I am very grateful to have a job which I love! I cherish the rapport I have with my clients, many of whom have trusted me with their beautiful faces of various skin types, textures and tones for over 20 years. All are welcome at Skin by Brynne and I make every effort to make you feel comfortable, treat your skin, and leave you feeling pampered and relaxed.
I'm looking forward to seeing you in my private salon suite!
"I was using a heavy foundation to cover my acne. Brynne told me that my caking on the makeup was only making it worse. She suggested an alternative healthier brand of makeup, a salon treatment plan, and products to use at home. My skin is a lot clearer and I'm much more confidant." - Michelle S.
"I bought my Mom a gift certificate for her birthday, and she said her facial was so relaxing, she actually fell asleep during the massage part. Thanks for making my Mom feel like a queen!" - Jen B.
