EXPERIENCE: As a young girl, Melissa always knew she wanted to go into the beauty industry so as soon as she could, she went to makeup school at The Makeup Designory in Burbank, Ca. After graduating with raving references from her instructors, she came back home to the Bay Area to pursue her Esthetician’s License at Cinta Aveda Institute in San Francisco. Once licensed, she began working at Benefit Cosmetics, in both the Palo Alto and San Francisco locations, where she honed in on her skills and became a top producing Brow Artist. Melissa also spent over a year at the European Wax Center, becoming a fast and efficient Brazilian bikini waxer. Melissa is talented, fun, professional, playful and very passionate about waxing, especially brows.

Licensed Esthetician, Skincare and Acne Management Specialist
EXPERIENCE: Hannah has spent over 10 years in the health/beauty/wellness industry. She loves working with her clients on their skincare concerns because she has suffered from chronic skincare challenges herself. As a long time facial client of Julice’s, Hannah knows first hand the importance of getting regular facials coupled with a good skincare routine at home.
After receiving her B.A in Fine Arts from the University of San Francisco, Hannah decided to pursue her real passion in skincare at the San Francisco Institute of Esthetics and Cosmetology. Hannah is so happy to be in Palo Alto, working on clients in the community she grew up in.
