Meet Cassandra San Miguel of Bare Beauty Solutions

Today we’d like to introduce you to Cassandra San Miguel.

Cassandra, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
After years of contentment in corporate America stuck in an unfulfilling role assisting to creative minds, I developed a strong urge to have some creation of my own to produce. So I decided to take a leap!

I’ve always been passionate about makeup, in fact, my first job out of high school was at a makeup counter in Macy’s. What attracted me to cosmetics aside from the joy in artistry, is the powerful effect it can have on a gal’s confidence. Getting to be a contributing factor to help achieve ones’ ideal beauty is a rewarding feeling in itself.

I decided to invest in training programs specializing in Cosmetic and Paramedical Tattoo Services. After a few months of training and mentorship with Mahnaz Bahaelou owner of Elite Permanent Makeup, I felt beyond ready to embark on this entrepreneurial journey and just like that Bare Beauty Solutions was born!

This past September marks my second year since my cosmetic tattoo studio opened. I help make people feel their best by enhancing/defining their beautiful features or sometimes even concealing flaws a client may feel insecure about.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Initially, the biggest challenge was getting consistent bookings enough to keep the shop open. Being that it’s a semi-permanent service the customers aren’t typically back for another visit for at least nine months to a year.

With that said my beginning was rough, some months were great we’re as others were completely dry. I learned very quickly that the service I provide would take constant marketing and advertising to bring in new business, the grind just doesn’t stop!. I’ve adapted to all the roles it takes to stay in business.

I’m the marketing team, the business manager, receptionist, and the artist, and truthfully I’ve grown to embrace all the trials as lessons. If entrepreneurship has taught me anything it’s that flexibility in method is equally important as determination. There’s no such thing as failure, just obstacles!

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Bare Beauty Solutions – what should we know?
Bare Beauty Solutions offers a variety of techniques of tattooing for aesthetic purposes.

Whether it’s the last step in a reconstruction surgery, an effort to conceal imperfections or simply to enhance your beauty we have a solution that can ultimately restore confidence with very little maintenance.

We take pride in every transformation that takes place. My end goal is to make all my clients feel like the best version of themselves. Be(you)tiful!

Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
I can truly say that I’m blessed to have a supportive circle. My parents encourage me to be bold and take risks. So they were excited to see me go for it.

My significant other and friends all play a motivating role, from pep talks to posting my promotions on their FB and IG they’ve definitely helped boost my visibility, and that’s always helpful!

Most of my girlfriends have also become walking advertisements for my work, and in return, I received tons of referrals. I appreciate every client that comes my way, I feel honored to be trusted with your precious face!
