Meet Giselle Loaiza
My name is Giselle Loaiza and I was born and raised in beautiful San Diego. One of my favorite things to do growing up was to play “dress-up” and it must be said, no one was safe around me. Not even my grandpa. Whenever he came over, he would head to his special spot on the couch and I would turn him into the prettiest man in the room. I would also dress my older sister up in our mom’s clothes and do her make-up with my plastic lipstick and eyeshadow sets.
Some things still haven’t changed. The make believe and dress-up gave me a deep appreciation for the beauty industry and I made a decision to go to school so I can turn what I love doing into a career. I went to Bellus Academy in El Cajon and got my license in Esthetics and have been working in the industry since 2014. In July of 2015, I took the scariest step of my life and started Glo Skincare and waxing. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
I grew up with an aunt who was a hairdresser and had a little salon room built in her home, so I truly believe the career of helping people look and feel beautiful was in my genes.
Some reasons why I love being an Esthetician are:
I love my industry because it’s a very emotionally rewarding profession. Something as simple as a wax or a quick facial can make the biggest difference in someone’s day. They feel beautiful or like they say “sexy” again. When my clients feel good, I feel good! It’s a win win!
I never get bored in my profession. Every client is different, it’s NEVER the “same old, same old”, doesn’t matter if I am waxing or performing facial treatments.
This industry is always changing and there is always something new to learn. I have a passion for learning anything and everything I can when it comes to skincare. Between industry magazines, blogs, classes and websites, the opportunities to learn are endless. Staying up to date with what’s going on in this industry is a must if you want to be successful and stay successful.
Since I’ve been an esthetician I have learned that treatments give far more benefit than just to the skin. From personal experience, I believe when you look better, you feel better. When you feel better your self-esteem goes through the roof and you feel like you can take on the world! If I am capable of helping someone feel that way about themselves then I am all for it!
I love every aspect of being an esthetician but I have to say the best part is my clients! I have gotten to meet so many people from all over the world who honestly I might have never met if it weren’t for being in this industry. I’m lucky to say that I’ve been given a great opportunity to create long lasting relationships with a lot of the amazing people.
As a business owner and lover of all things beautiful, I’m always looking into expanding my skill set and learning about new products. I know that all people are different and I strive to create a personal regimen for each of my customers.
