Who is Crickett?
Hello! I'm Crickett, and I'm thrilled you're here.
I am a Licensed Esthetician, waxing expert, and professional waxing educator. In case you’re wondering what makes me the expert, and why I choose waxing as my specialty it all started 16 years ago. I was a plucky Esthetician student going through the paces of getting her license and discovered hair removal. Until that time, I had only had one waxing experience on myself and it was horrible.
Like many Esthetician students I thought, “waxing sounds easy enough, I could totally do that”. Silly me.
I was fearless with waxing. No one else wanted to do it, but they all wanted to watch me do it. I talked the instructor into letting me do a minimal bikini wax demonstration for the class. Even as a student, I was an instructor in the making.
I was recruited to work at a top European Day Spa in Saratoga California before I even completed my licensing exams. Once I passed my state boards I was trained on Brazilian waxing by the fabulous lead French Esthetician, named “Francois”.
As it turned out, I sucked at Brazilian waxing! Seriously. When I left that spa to move on, I swore that I would NEVER do another Brazilian for as long as I lived! NEVER!
*SPOILER ALERT* Never say never.
I discovered that Brazilians were and still are super popular and profitable and if I wasn’t doing them, then I was missing out. SO… I searched and searched to find more advanced Brazilian waxing education. It was and still is so hard to find. But I found it – perfected the art - and this means you have found the mothership of waxing resources. No matter if you’re a professional or an at-home waxer, you now have access to the crème de le crème of professional waxing products and waxing education.
I break things down into bite sized, understandable pieces and my detailed nature makes it easy for me to analyze and quickly correct a student's technique.
In 2007 I started out on my own as an educator, offering hands on classes around the country. And I created my very first educational DVD for eyebrow design "Brilliant Brows". Over the next 10 years I made a total of five educational DVDs for brow, Brazilian and body waxing.
In 2012 I created my own boutique line of award-nominated waxes and waxing products geared toward providing a superior hair removal service while remaining pure and powerful.
Every year I attend at least two industry trade shows, to sit in on workshops and see what's new in waxing and the beauty industry in general. I am a member (since 2012) of The Beauty Biz Club which is an ongoing high level networking group for beauty professionals.
My mission is to EMPOWER you as the professional or at-home waxer, and soon you will be waxing with confidence. You will learn the skills, gain confidence, and gain knowledge, while using top quality products and tools.
On a personal note, when I'm not working, I love to spend time with my family. My husband Wes is an Electrician at the Railroad and we have two amazing fur babies, Jake and Missy. Jake is half Boston Terrier half Yorkshire Terrier, I call him a "BYorki". Missy is 10 pounds of Pekegise dynamite. I feel so blessed to have all of them in my life.
I also love acting and singing. Just before Corona hit, I was in rehearsal to play the lead role of Reno Sweeny in Anything Goes at our Performing Arts Center. Can’t wait to get back to that.
I look forward to getting to know you and I’m here to champion you in the world of waxing!
