Stacy Perez, Licensed Esthetician & Certified Sugarist
Mother of two teenagers and an aussie-doodle pup. Stacy and her family moved from Massachusetts to Sarasota in 2013. Although she was licensed in cosmetology over 20 years ago, she quickly realized she didn't quite have the passion for hair as much as she did for treating the skin. So at the time, she chose to commit herself to running a chrome and vehicle detailing business alongside her husband and became known as the "Chrome Couple" in her home state. Yet with a true desire to return to the esthetic industry (and the support of her husband), she re-enrolled at Fashion Focus Hair Academy to obtain her esthetician license after relocating to Florida.
Excited to finally be in pursuit of her ideal career, she continued training and professional certifications in microdermabrasion, facial sculpting technique, eyelash extension application, brow & lash tinting, lash lift, full body sugaring hair removal, lymphatic drainage massage and dermaplaning.
With all her previous experience in human resources and organization; Stacy quickly became the brains behind the day to day operations at His & Hers Bare Beauty and we're honored to have her in our tribe.
Ashlynn Everett, Licensed Esthetician & Certified Sugarist
Freshly licensed Esthetician, and another graduate of Fashion Focus Academy (located here in the Gulf Gate community). Ashlynn’s always demonstrated a desire to learn and a strong passion for skin care and cosmetics. With a background in customer service and hospitality, esthetics seemed like a natural fit. And due to fortunate and unfortunate events (some unexpected support from family & COVID quarantine) she was presented with an opportunity to attend esthetic school and actively pursue her career earlier than anticipated.
Originally from a small town in Pennsylvania, she and her boyfriend recently moved to Florida for a change of scenery and warmer weather. Ashlynn is a middle child with 2 brothers; she’s also a self-described “Cat Mom”.
On top of her love for skin care, she’s developed an intense interest for the art of eyebrow shaping, perfection through lamination, tinting and lash lift applications.
