"My goal is to transform you, teach you, and empower you to make feeling pretty an everyday occasion."
Hi! I’m Kara Sánchez Reed and I’m your go-to girl for all things beauty in Austin, Texas.
I just got married for the 1st time, (thought I’d say that up front because everyone asks since I’m 38 and he’s 42). Last year we planned a wedding, got puppy (Sofia), sold our house, bought a complete reno, started the DIY process over from the studs while we built out my beauty studio & launched it in May, and was gifted another puppy (Brix which makes 3 including the Maverick). I am now a bonafide plant lady with 54 indoor plants that I have kept alive to my Mom’s surprise-I challenge you to count them next time you’re over and yes, I am judging your eyebrows when we chat!
Our life is loaded and we wouldn’t have it any other way! I am grateful for a supportive champion of a husband and loving fur-family, (if you tune into my daily instastories, you’ll love them too), the challenging learning curve of the last year and a thriving brick & mortar with the kindest, most loyal clientele from all over the country.
