Wax It Skin Studio started with a vision to fulfill a need in the Vail Valley. Our goal is, and always has been, to provide amazing aesthetic services to our community at a reasonable price. We’ve created an approachable and comfortable environment where you can relax and unwind while receiving a high-quality service and experience.
We started Wax It Skin Studio two years ago, and since then, it has quickly grown into the valley’s premier location for all things aesthetics. The combination of Matt’s experience in marketing and startup companies plus my 10+ years of experience in aesthetics has proven to be a successful business model, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for us.
Our brand-new, vibrant health and wellness center in Avon is the start of many great things to come. Moving forward, we hope to bring our community together, offer up a variety of different workshops and classes centered on holistic health and well-being while providing a safe and comfortable space for all to enjoy. So come on in and see what we're all about! We hope you’ll leave relaxed, centered and ready to take on the world.
All the love,
Michelle and Matt
Get to know your esthetician
Michelle has been a licensed esthetician in the state of Colorado since 2009, and helping people feel beautiful, inside and out, is her favorite part of her career. She grew up with a love and curiosity for all things pretty; the beautiful women of her family were Estee Lauder girls for years, and it sparked an interest in her to explore the beauty industry. A love (and obsession) for makeup and skincare products, along with her own skincare struggles as an adolescent, drove her to pursue a career in aesthetics.
She received her education in Denver in 2008. Later working in two of Denver's top waxing salons, she gained experience and knowledge of some of the most advanced hair removal techniques in the industry. After moving to the Vail Valley, she’s had the pleasure of working in some of our most beautiful resort spas, as well as with one of the leading organic skincare companies in the aesthetics industry.
Her passion for helping people and the overall healing of others is what feeds her soul. Being able to help someone through the power of touch and good intention is a special thing, and it is what means the most to her as an esthetician and otherwise.
After over 10 years of performing facials, waxing and eyebrow services, she is taking the next step in her career and transitioning into her career in microblading. She received her microblading and permanent makeup certification in Colorado at the College of International Esthetics in Denver. She has also trained with PhiBrows in La Jolla, California.
For the past 18 years, Patience has worn many hats in the health and fitness industries including her career as a business owner, manager, exercise and pilates instructor, sponsored Ironman triathlete and even an Olympic trails swim coach. Wellness for Patience isn't just her profession, but her passion!
Patience is a licensed esthetician though the School of Botanical and Medical Aesthetics in Denver, Colorado. She is thrilled to embark on her next professional chapter of wellness as an esthetician, and we are honored to have her on the Wax It team!
