A licensed aesthetician, Laynes is also the CEO of Smooth Skin Supply LLC and the creator of the Esthetician Summit.
What is your educational background, and how do you continue your education in the industry?
I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in kinesiology and have been a licensed aesthetician for 20 years. I am a huge ingredient junkie and educate myself weekly on skin care trends, new technologies, and ingredient uses for skin, specifically with eczema-prone skin.
How long have you been practicing, and why did you choose this field?
I have been practicing for 20 years, and this field really chose me. I have acne-prone skin and
started seeing an aesthetician over 22 years ago who really helped clear my skin. I wanted to
help other people who suffer with acne-prone skin like I did, so I decided to go to beauty school at night to get my license. After getting my license, I started waxing to learn how to earn more money per client instead of one facial per hour. I self-taught myself the seven-minute Brazilian wax technique, started manufacturing wax and teaching, and the Se-Brazil Wax brand was created.
