With years of experience and countless certifications under her belt, Alicia is a warm heart and an artistic soul.

Welcome, Alicia, our newest Kolya Wholistic aesthetician!

 

 

Q & A with Alicia, Kolya Wholistic Aesthetician

 

1) What drew you to working at Kolya's Spa?

"I’ve known for many years that I wanted to work with Kolya. When I first came across their website I felt it was the perfect place for me. I’ve been using organic natural skincare since I was 15, so when I discovered what Kolya was all about I knew this is where I wanted to be."

 

2) You were trained in traditional aesthetics. What makes the facials you offer at Kolya unique?

"Being trained in traditional aesthetics, I can honestly say that Kolya’s facial treatments are like no other. Every single touch to the skin is intended for the client to feel loved and placed into a state of bliss. Also, because at Kolya we use only the purest ingredients in our skincare, these nourishing ingredients can penetrate deeply into the skin which leaves you with a beautiful healthy glow inside and out!"

 

3) What is your favourite treatment to give? To receive?

"To give: Kolya Custom Facial - I really enjoy choosing whichever product I feel will be best for my client’s skin.

To receive: Dr. Hauschka facial. It’s a long-standing classic for a reason!"

 

 

4) What is your favourite product from the Kolya Spa?

"The Tata Harper Nourishing Body Oil! It’s always my go-to for the massage portion of the treatment!"

 

5) What is your most common skincare tip/recommendation?

"Drink lots of water and use plant-based oils on your skin! Even if you’re an oily skin type like myself, using light, balancing oils such as jojoba will keep your skin looking healthy & radiant.

Also! If you have a break out, apply neem oil to the affected area. Neem oil has the most amazing anti-fungal/anti microbial properties and even though it’s smelly, it’ll heal your blemish in a flash."

7) You're also a makeup artist - can you share a fun makeup tip with us?

"Always lift the brow by the arch with your finger when filling them in. This allows for a more precise and defined shape and will leave you with a soft, flattering look." 

 

8) About Alicia:

"I’ve been with Kolya since August of 2021. I have 5 years experience and certification in makeup artistry and brow shaping, waxing, sugaring, and have spent much of my spare time volunteering with the Mustard Seed giving haircuts."
