Community Highlights: Meet Sabrina Estrada of SkinWaxRelax

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sabrina Estrada.

Hi Sabrina, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
I always knew that I wanted to be an esthetician, my attempt at various careers led me through various paths that I was never satisfied with. I knew deep down my true passion was to help others, so eight years ago I took a leap of faith to finally embark on what my heart was set on becoming an esthetician. When I first became an esthetician, I started out in a corporate wax setting. My goal has always been to have the ability to provide the level of service I wanted to give without the corporate environment. Little did I know that six years later, some uncontrollable changes would be on the horizon! When the pandemic started, I had two choices. I could either wait and see how my corporate spa job would pan out amidst the unknown or take another leap and make the change I had been longing for. I chose the latter and thus SkinWaxRelax was born.

I knew starting SkinWaxRelax was my opportunity to finally have something of my own and be able to offer a more personal experience to my clients. Starting my own business was not only important to me as a businesswoman but also as a mother. It’s important to me that I’m able to be successful and follow my passion, while also being someone my children can look up to. I want them to see anything is possible. SkinWaxRelax has been open for almost two years now, and I haven’t looked back since!

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
When the pandemic hit and the inevitable shutdowns began to take place, there was a very real uncertainty of whether or not I’d find myself even being able to walk into work the next day. I knew deep down that this was a sign for me to walk away from a corporate environment and take pause before making my next career decision. After countless sleepless nights, I landed on the decision that felt right in my heart. SkinWaxRelax was officially in business! Working through the pandemic has been a rollercoaster, to say the least, but I have managed to navigate both my personal and work life in a way that I wouldn’t have known how to a few years ago. If I’ve learned one thing through the highs and lows, it’s to ride it out and enjoy the journey as much as possible. I’m finally at a place where I can acknowledge that everything will be alright and it’s okay to be proud of myself and celebrate the victories along the way.

Appreciate you sharing that. What should we know about SkinWaxRelax?
I offer an array of services, ranging from full body waxing to lash lifts and tints. I feel honored to have been able to create an environment over the past two years where people can come to me and get a truly personalized experience. I am a proud female business owner who has made it through a global pandemic. SkinWaxRelax has created not only a business for myself but also a community for everyone who walks through my doors. I enjoy creating a bond with each and every one of my clients that doesn’t feel transactional. In the end, SkinWaxRelax is not only a business, but it is also a place where strangers become friends.
