Alumni Spotlight with Kasey Nicole

Kasey Nicole has been ambitiously pursuing the beauty industry since the age of 18. She attended makeup school in Los Angeles and worked there for about a year as a makeup artist. Shortly after, she moved back to Arizona to obtain her Esthetics license at Penrose Academy. Once she graduated from Penrose, she got her first job at European Wax Center. She loved the strong waxing foundation European Wax Center provided and after a year of gaining experience and focusing on her waxing speed, Kasey was ready to live out her dreams of working closer to home and having the creative freedom she desired! So, she took a huge leap of faith and decided to move to her own beauty suite in Gilbert, AZ. She offers a variety of services such as waxing, microblading, all things makeup, and spray tans – just to name a few! Recently, she has collaborated with 3 other businesses and together they have a created a one stop shop for all things beauty and skin care called the Pretty House Studio! Kasey’s creativity and passion for the beauty industry radiates from her and has helped her navigate her career… We are so excited to see her business grow!
