Today we’d like to introduce you to Robyn Newmark.
Robyn, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Since I was a child, I knew I loved two things, art and teaching. I wanted to be an art teacher so I started painting very young. My creativity graduated to makeup and beauty as I became a young lady. My interest in making people my canvas grew. I was discovered at 16 by two Redken hairstylist doing prom makeup for a girlfriend. They loved my work so much they hired me to work their runway hair shows. They told me to say I was 18 and don’t drink anything. Of course, I didn’t and before I knew it I was a working makeup artist. I then got certified in permanent makeup and skincare and now am bringing Epilfree a nonlaser permanent hair reduction method to the USA. I am really excited for the newest chapter in my career which is to bring the best products and education to my industry. I can honestly say I’ve started from the ground up and I’ve paid my dues. I had to experience each stage of it to have the knowledge and respect for what I do and my craft.
Sometimes it feels like I must got started yesterday. It’s amazing how times flies. I’m so honored to be on this side of my career and able to start passing the torch on.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It certainly hasn’t been a smooth road but it’s hard to know what to change about it. I feel like each challenge has really shaped me and prepared me for the next chapter in life.
In the beginning, I struggled with being skilled enough and getting clients. Then it was about having the right job or even the courage to leave bad employers. I think the next biggest challenge was getting over the fear of doing it n my own and having my own locations. Now it’s about my academy and growing our online presence.
Each phase of business has shaped me. I learn so much from other people and certainly haven’t done it alone. My clients teach me so much and so does the younger generation. I know that the way I face challenges is much different. I’m much calmer about things and less stressed. I also am more solid in who I am. Accepting that life is nothing hit a series of challenges or opportunities. How you approach life has a lot to do with it. I’ve learned to be more carefree… I think that just comes with experience.

What I am the most proud of in my business is that it is a family business. I always dreamed of working with my mother and father, as well as some close friends. We keep a tight ship and our internal team is indeed a family dynamic. Everyone in our company is the best at what they do. I have no weak links. None. What we have is an environment where everyone is living their dream and doing what they are passionate about. That joy and passion reflect through our education and the opportunities that we bring for other professionals to grow their businesses. I think that’s what I am the most proud of.
Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
My favorite memory from childhood is definitely Christmas Eve. We would go to my mother’s side of the family and I can remember there was always so many people in the house. 80 people at least I remember they’re hardly ever being a place to sit and trays of food all over the buffet table. The smell of homemade tamales though out the house. And if you think 80 people is a lot now, image every person bringing at least 5-10 present to put under the tree. The presents spilled out into the room. We weren’t a rich family, just a really big family. It was insane the amount of noise and chaos and cheered through the night. I don’t think I’ll ever forget those times. Now we have all split into smaller families and now with COVID, it will be even smaller. Christmas is still my favorite holiday.
