Kristen has been in the skin care industry for over 27 years practicing in all areas of Aesthetics and Cosmetology, including Organic Skin Care education. Growing up in a small town in northern Connecticut, Kristen's family’s heritage influenced her in many ways with having a long history of farming and growing natural foods. This led to a focus on healthy eating, exercise and taking care of her skin. Kristen quickly realized how natural ingredients would be amazing to treat the skin, and naturally fell in love with the organic lifestyle and sought a career in professional skin care.
After gaining her license for skin care, hair and nails, Kristen moved to South Florida where she immediately focused on furthering her education in aesthetics. This led to gaining certifications in numerous areas of aesthetics such as Ethnic Skin Care, Pigment Disorders, Micro-Current Therapy and Clinical Treatments for Acne and Aging. Kristen spent over 18 years in South Florida where it was a wonderful time both personally and professionally.
Kristen moved to New York in 2006 where she built a loyal clientele as well as having the privilege of being the primary educator & account representative for the Eminence Organic Skin Care line in the New York Metro. This experience allowed Kristen to perfect advanced techniques in organic skin care in addition to working side by side with many great aesthetic professionals in NYC.
In 2015, Kristen launched her private skin care and brow boutique in beautiful New York City. Kristen Leigh is located in a tranquil spot on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, just a block away from Central Park off Madison and Fifth Avenues.
Each day Kristen continues to be inspired to learn and share more, and be the best that professional she can be.
