Ulyana comes to Beauty Mark from Manhattan, where she worked with two of the most highly regarded estheticians in the country, Joanna Vargas and Georgia Louise. There, she worked closely with countless big name clients, specializing in advanced anti-aging protocols, sculpt and lift massage techniques, and she developed a deep understanding of how to educate her clients with customized skincare treatments and transformative routines. Bringing a decade of experience that began at Nine Three One Skin Care Beauty Academy in Philadelphia, Ulyana is a strong believer that beautiful skin starts from within, and as a result, she combines clean eating with a meditation practice and a powerful skin regimen.
Ulyana recently relocated to New Hampshire to support her husband's career as a football coach. She is looking forward to meeting new clients and having the opportunity to help them transform their skin. In her free time, Ulyana enjoys attending hot yoga classes, exploring vegan recipes, and spending time with her family.
Jennifer takes pride in being an esthetician, because knowing that she is helping someone feel not only beautiful but genuinely happy in their own skin is such a great accomplishment. She used to struggle with constant chin acne, and was prescribed ointment after ointment, drying out her skin. It wasn’t until Jennifer had her first facial she learned taking care of your skin comes in many different layers. Since then, she has always wanted to be that person for her clients, helping to educate them how to properly care for their skin. To do so, she has gained extensive training from Environ, Biologique Recherche, Dermaviduals, Augustinus Bader and Westman Atelier.
