Founder | Licensed Esthetician | Licensed Cosmetic Tattooist
I was born and raised in Santa Fe. I went to the Academy of Art University in San Francisco and graduated with a BFA. Before art school, I had worked in the beauty industry as a makeup artist for Prescriptives and skin care consultant for Origins. During college, I struggled with severe cystic acne. To make myself feel better, I experimented with almost every beauty service imaginable. During this time, I also grew increasingly obsessed with skin and skin care in an effort to save mine. The estheticians I went to didn't ask the right questions and the dermatologists just wanted to prescribe. I knew there had to be a better way.
In 2010, I moved back to Santa Fe and opened Glow. In that time, I have become a Licensed Esthetician in New Mexico and California. I have also combined my love for aesthetics and my fine art degree and have become a Licensed Permanent Makeup Artist.
Over the last 9 years, I have had the honor of employing some of the most amazing women Santa Fe has to offer. For them, I am always grateful as I have learned so much. I have chosen the women I work with very carefully. I believe in constant education and am excited to be in an industry that is constantly evolving.
My advanced education includes: The International Dermal Institute of Denver, PCA Skincare Workshop Abq, Image Skincare Training Abq, Institute of Permanent Makeup Santa Fe, Phi Brows Academy online, Dao Brows Microshading Albuquerque, Pefekt Brow Academy Tampa, Novalash Workshop San Francisco, The Wax Queen Workshop Chicago, ASCP Advanced Aging Workshop Chicago, ProCell Therapies Microneedling Workshop Chicago, InSPAration Management Daytona Beach, Fl.
I know how changing my skin situation and finally feeling beautiful changed my life. It has become my life's work to help women feel their most beautiful.
Licensed Esthetician | Licensed Cosmetic Tattooist
I began my career in the beauty industry in 2007 as a cosmetic artist. It was while beautifying the women of Santa Fe that I realized the impact of touch. I learned that each treatment I gave was also an experience in self-care and with just a single healing touch I could affect how my clients felt about themselves inside and out. Educated at the Aveda Institute of New Mexico in 2011 and licensed in Esthetics in 2012, I have since been providing a range of treatments to include master brow artistry, customized organic facials, and results-based driven advanced skin care. Also a certified eyelash extension technician, I specialize in volume and classic lash extensions. With continuing education accreditation in Anti-Aging Solutions, Advanced Skin Analysis, and the Science of Facial Massage from Cidesco Skin USA, I am continuously seeking to further my knowledge in Esthetics. With 12 years of experience creating beautiful brows, it was a natural next step for me to become licensed in semi-permanent cosmetic artistry. I am now a New Mexico licensed cosmetic tattoo artist. I am a Santa Fe native and mother of three beautiful daughters.
I have been involved in the beauty industry since 2010 – but it wasn’t until 2013 that I started my own journey of training at Vogue College of Cosmetology in Santa Fe. There, I learned everything about hair, skin and nails. However, I found a passion for skin care in beauty school, and decided to take advanced courses within the program regarding facials, L.E.D. Light Therapy, Micro-current, Microdermabrasion and peels. Although I have been a hairstylist and makeup artist in the past, my true passion is skin deep. I believe if you take good care of your skin, regardless of age, your confidence is lifted. Even with makeup, a smooth and hydrated canvas enables makeup to look its best. As we age, so does our skin, and your understanding of a personalized and proper regimen is what I intend to provide to all of my clients! I truly want you to leave glowing!
I have taken classes in speed waxing and peels (in Las Vegas last year). I was born and raised in Santa Fe. I recently graduated from Vogue with an Esthetic's License. I’ve been receiving advanced training in Waxing, Facials, Peels, Lashes and Spray Tanning, as well as education in Microcurrent, High Frequency, Microderm, Ultrasonic, Galvanic and LED. Working for such an amazing place as Glow is an honor, as Jonelle’s continual education is inspiring and necessary in today’s competitive beauty industry. I have had a passion for the beauty industry my whole life. I am a perfectionist and love to learn. Keeping up with the trends and latest techniques is something I try to stay afloat on. I truly love helping women be their best and feel confident and beautiful. People say I’m friendly and warm.
