Laurie is the Boss Lady around here. As the owner and head aesthetician, she is known for her quick brazilians and amazing brow work. Outside of waxing, Laurie does microblading, laser, and electrolysis. If you want to book with Laurie, you’re going to have to book at least a week in advance!

Erin joined Bare Essentials as Laurie‘s maternity leave cover when Stella was first born in 2014. She had been an esthetician for over 10 years, and had been working in retail/cosmetics when she decided to take the leap with Laurie and become her second full-time esthetician. You’ll often find Erin with a new funky hair colour — purple, magenta, peach… what’s next? Her light-hearted personality is not reflective of her waxing skills, so don’t fret, you’re in great hands when you book with Erin.

Veronica is our resident dog lover and funny-face maker. She’s goofy, but compassionate; a sweetheart, but a very skilled and experienced waxer.

Sara has been with Bare Essentials since our move to the King St location back in November 2015. She has extensive experience in the salon industry and has worked in salons all over Kitchener-Waterloo. Ask her how her brows looked before she started working at BE Waterloo, she’d love to show you her before shot!
