Hello, Im Irene Hernandez. I was born in Florida and raised in Georgia. I am on a a journey to fulfill my dreams of being an esthetician. I graduated from Central Carolina Community College. While I am skilled in all avenues of being an esthetician, I enjoy doing facials, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, advanced waxing and micro currents the most. To me, these are the best art forms for relaxation. I love helping others on their journey to self care.

She loves spending time with her daughter, writing, traveling and yoga. She completed the Massage Therapy program at College of Wilmington and is a licensed Massage and Bodywork Therapist. Chandra believes in the healing power of massage and is on a life mission to spread the word.
I am from Tennessee where I worked in medical esthetics. I have been practicing since 2013. Outside of work I enjoy family time, playing with our pups, new adventures & photography. “I love teaching people how to take care of their skin. My favorite product to recommend is Sunscreen.
