Meet Kaila Dinius of Skin Magician in Ventura

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kaila Dinius.

Kaila, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I started waxing my life away in the back room of my mother’s hair salon. After sitting through college classes, not really knowing what I wanted to do with my life, I said, “I love helping people” and I have the perfect set up with her! So, I went to school, worked in the salon, had a baby, got married, and really started to get serious about my new career. It was then time to broaden my horizon, strengthen my knowledge, and leave my Mom’s salon. So, I started working at a reputable Medspa in town. There I learned, listened, treated clients and really became confident in craft. Following the medspa, I decided I wanted more. A plastic surgeon/surgery center in town trusted me and hired me! I was stoked! I worked there over the course of a couple of years and got an opportunity to really learn extensive skincare. I learned about ingredients, the science of skin, and hands on education. I was so grateful to this office because it lead me to my next adventure. I was so excited! I was brought on to manage a high-end celebrity Medspa! There I learned more there than I had ever imagined. I was seeing clients, running the office, and meeting people that I couldn’t even believe! I was able to still see clients, and perfect my craft while learning the nitty gritty “business stuff”. That lasted for three years. After much thought, I decided that it was time to move out on my own. Since then, I have managed to keep my business thriving, and even start my own skincare brand!

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
No. in my 15 years experience, I worked through a recession, a tragic mudslide, our town burning down, and many other struggles! However, I try not to focus on the bad. I have learned that in every situation there is always a silver lining, and always, always something to be learned.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
I specialize in individual treatment. I focus on the individuals concerns and issues and treat each client differently! I like to say I don’t offer a “fluffy facial” meaning, I get down to business, and promise they will not miss the hand massage 🙂 I also, rarely ever do the same treatment twice. As a business, I pride myself in knowledge, kindness, honesty, and results. I think what sets me most apart is I under promise and over deliver. And most of all, I want all my clients to feel comfortable, included, and know that every single treatment is more than just a facial. It’s me giving them my attention and expertise to make them feel the best they possibly can about themselves. I want every single person to leave feeling better than when they came.

What were you like growing up?
Growing up, I was a late bloomer. My family moved around a lot. I truly think that this was a blessing because it taught me to be adaptable. It taught me confidence and to not be afraid of change. I have two younger siblings, one is seven years younger, and one is 13 years younger. So, I spent a lot of summer days taking care of them while my mom and stepdad worked. Which probably made me the care-taker I am now! I was always interested in people growing up, but I was very shy until High school… I kind of bloomed and came out of my shell. I made the cheerleading squad and then life really started for me.
