Esthetician & Wax Specialist
Hi! My name is Ivona and I am the esthetician and wax specialist at NY Jungle Spa. I have thirty years of experience, which started in Poland where I am from and where I first got my license. I came to America and continued my career path and got licensed in both NY and NJ as well. After I got licensed here, I worked for Repechage in NYC and then eventually became head esthetician at Sothys in the city too and I loved every second of it!
I became an esthetician for many reasons. To start, I always thought estheticians had great skin and knew what they were talking about so, of course, I wanted to know too! Another reason is I have always been very interested in learning about ingredients and how they work- I love the way it makes me think - which ingredients and products work well with each other.
One of the many things I love about my job is that no day is ever the same! Everyday is a new experience- from checking in a client to consulting and talking to performing the service- it is always unique. The most rewarding aspect of my job is seeing returned guests and watching their skin progress. It becomes addicting! I also just love to give overall skin tips and advice. My favorite: you do not have to look your age with proper skin care + services!
I am very happy to be a part of the NY Jungle family. This place is so unique- to me this place is like a dream, the clients are lovely, the staff is amazing, and everyone is overall really nice. I cannot wait to meet you!
