To continue our creator spotlight series, this month we had the pleasure of interviewing Kayonara Barros. As a licensed full face specialist, there is nothing Kayonara can’t do.
From brows and lashes to lips and hair, Kayonara is a superhero when it comes to beauty. She has been working as a full specialist for 7 years and began her training when she lived in Brazil.
When we asked what inspired her to start working in the beauty industry, Kayonara said she loved to see how her services boost peoples’ self-esteem, and we can see why.
All of her clients leave the studio feeling beautiful and glowy, which is no surprise since she has over 150 5-star reviews. But, as with most entrepreneurs, her success did not come easily.
“When I started here in the U.S.,” she said, “I didn’t have the clients I had in Brazil.”
So, she had to put in the work to grow her client base here in America, and social media is one of the best ways to promote businesses from scratch.
Kayonara primarily uses Instagram to reach her target audience, and she has gained over 12.6k followers on her account.
Her favorite service to perform is anything for lashes and brows, and she offers 14 different brow and lash treatments that can glamorize any look. A unique specialty that she offers is the Swarovski lash service which will make your eyes sparkle… literally.
When asked the hard-hitting question of what beauty product she couldn’t live without, Kayonara couldn’t just pick one. She has her own line of beauty products, Kayonara Beauty Studios, that she uses on a daily basis.
If you look right, you can see her using the foaming lash shampoo from her beauty line.
Kayonara’s favorite part about running her own business is making her studio at My Creative Studios a welcoming and beautiful place for her customers, so they leave satisfied with both the service and the environment.
“I love seeing the reactions after the finished job,” she said.
Kayonara sure knows how to treat her customers right, especially because she also offers sweet treats to the customers. Her craft cappuccinos make every visit to her studio like a dream.
Her advice to those considering a career in the beauty industry is to, “Never give up on achieving your goals.” Although it may be discouraging at first, the rewards will make it worth it.
“You’ll go far, but it’s up to you!” she said.
To help people get their foot in the door, Kayonara provides training sessions for those looking to learn how to specialize in eyebrow and eyelash services.
