Clarisa Hodle, Master Esthetician

 

Clarisa has been fascinated her whole life with the beauty industry. She wishes she could count how many times she was "caught" playing with her mom’s makeup. Coming from a small town, the word “Master Esthetician” wasn’t a career that was ever heard of. When she moved to Seattle, she realized her dream could finally become a reality. Each client she sees is a confirmation of the passion she feels at doing what she is knows she’s supposed to be doing in life. Doing what you love is happiness, loving what you do is freedom. Her soul has found the freedom to be herself. 
 
 Clients regularly compliment Clarisa on is her skin. She always tells them: “Good skin doesn’t happen by chance, it happens by appointment.” Growing up with oily/acneic skin, she would try everything to calm her skin down. Specializing in a skin type/ problem wasn’t what she planned, it sort of just happened. Whether you have oily and acne ridden skin or fine lines and drooping, she can help you achieve whatever skin care goals you have in mind. Her magic talent is to give you extraordinary skin.

Mara is a soulful being who loves learning. She is inspired by the medical implications in aesthetics. After being a massage therapist for several years she knew she wanted to expand her treatment options for clients. 
She is passionate about the skincare field and the advancement of technology in the industry. 

When she turned 40 Mara experienced some insecurities about her changing skin, but realized she could grow old gracefully with a little outside help. She feels that taking proper care of your skin does not only reap cosmetic benefits. When you look good and feel confident in your skin, positive vibes radiate throughout your whole being, which in turn permeate every aspect of your life. When you practice self-care for your skin you hold your head up high, with a little twinkle in your eye. 

Mara has been on a spiritual journey of self-discovery, and has awakened to who she truly is. She sees the world though new eyes, and has learned to live in the present moment. Always in Gratitude, forever in spirit!
