Women Inspiring Women: Esthetician, Jamie Gill
Women’s History Month is now over but we’d like to continue highlighting women who are not only making a name for themselves but also inspiring other women along the way. There are so many issues that women deal with on a day-to-day basis and some of those issues we keep to ourselves. Esthetician Jamie Gill is creating a safe space for women. She not only has her salon services to help women in the Las Vegas area but she and her team have created a product line solving intimate area skin problems for women nationwide.
Growing up in Nevada, Jamie always had a passion for helping women feel beautiful in their skin. Beginning as a makeup artist in college, she learned her craft, taught masterclasses, serviced celebrities, and was featured on TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress. After seeing her clients’ excited reactions to having their makeup done, she knew she wanted to expand her reach within the beauty industry.
Soon after, Jamie enrolled in esthetician school and quickly mastered the art of sugar waxing. From servicing clients in her studio to opening a successful waxing salon, Jamie has created a comfortable environment for women to express their intimate skin concerns and receive quality treatments catered to their needs.
Through her years of experience and success, Jamie discovered a market for professional sugar waxing and at-home aftercare products. Leaning on her expertise as an esthetician, Jamie started My Vikini to fulfill her mission of making women feel more confident in their skin. As leaders in the sugar waxing and vajacial industry, Jamie and the My Vikini team developed the Three-Step System: the first all-in-one solution that addresses every bikini area skin concern. She is proud to present a product that she loves and uses in her daily life.
To Jamie, salon services are like therapy. She understands that seeing improvements in your skin can boost your energy. She stands by My Vikini’s before-and-after results and is proud to help others feel good about themselves by providing quality skincare services.
We recently spoke to Jaime and got more insight into her services and how she’s helping women every day.
Why do you feel there is so much taboo around women speaking freely about the bikini area?
Jamie: I think there’s so much taboo around women speaking freely about the bikini area because we are expected to be perfect and when we are anything less than “perfect” we are shamed for it. I think it’s similar to how there’s a lot of taboo around women’s periods or women breastfeeding in public. I think the more we talk about the skin concerns in the bikini area the less self-conscious we will be. The more we talk about these concerns we will realize that most of us suffer from the same thing and there’s a way to treat it.
What services do you provide?
Jamie: I offer full body sugar waxing and Vajacials. A bikini facial that treats all the skin concerns we have such as: ingrown hairs, razor bumps, scarring, and hyperpigmentation.
I also teach foundational and advanced Sugaring courses where students become proficient in full-body sugar waxing, Brazillian waxing, and Vajacials.
Where do you see your brand in 5 years?
Jamie: In 5 years I see My Vikini being a multi-million dollar brand in Sephora or another big chain retailer. It will be a brand catered to women, providing everything we need relating to self-care, wellness, and beauty.
Do you have any upcoming events?
Jamie: I host sugaring classes and we are planning the next class for May. We also are planning a brunch for women and estheticians. We want to connect with everyday women and estheticians looking to advance in the field and that are interested in building a community with like-minded women.
