Masters of converting esthetics into customer satisfaction

Hannah Kovacs

Licensed Managing Esthetician
Hannah began her journey on the road to esthetics by taking a leap of faith, and enrolling at the most prestigious esthetics school in the area, Brown Aveda Institute, in April 2015. She always knew she wanted to help people overcome their skin challenges, while also helping them relax and unwind. She graduated at the top of her class in November 2015, and received her Managing Esthetician license in February 2016.

Growing up, she faced her own skin challenges - acne, dermatitis, and many other issues. These issues always led her back to an Esthetician, who changed the way she looked at her skin forever. These experiences taught her just how powerful our hands can be in helping others feel better about themselves, both physically and emotionally.

After teaching preschool for 3 years, she realized it was time to listen to that constant pull to go back to school for esthetics. She chose Brown Aveda because of their emphasis on natural, sustainable products, and homeopathic methods to heal the skin from the inside out. While in school, Hannah had a desire to drink up all the knowledge available to her - because of this, She is certified in microdermabrasion, exfoliating face, body, hand, and foot treatments, hair removal, relaxation and hot stone massage, facials, and detoxifying face and body treatments and massage. She knowledge and love of natural living also led her to become certified in Reiki. She is Reiki level one certified, and plans on expanding to level two soon. Hannah feels so thankful to have been able to pursue her dream of becoming an Esthetician and continues falling in love with the many aspects of esthetics every day!
