Chelsea Cornelius (left) and Cat Schutzer of Skinterest Skin Care Boutique, 11 N. 3rd Street, talk about what brought them into skin care:
Chelsea: "I fell into it by accident. I went to culinary school beforehand, loved it, but realized it wasn't what I wanted to do forever. And then I just started looking for schools for make-up because I thought it was really awesome, and then stumbled upon aesthetics and fell in love with it."
Cat: "I was tweezing eyebrows since I was in middle school. It was just my thing; I loved shaping and tweezing eyebrows. So I fell into more of the make-up end like she did and when I went to school, they suckered me in to signing up for the aesthetics program thinking that I was learning more about make-up, but I fell in love with skin care. It just all worked itself out and ten years later we just opened up our own place. We went from working in chains and being stuck in the box of not being able to do our own protocol and treating each client individually... It was all a number game and each person got the exact same thing. It was like cattle, you know, in-and-out, in-and-out. So being able to come here and being able to take our time with our clients and giving them the right regimens and the time they need really changed us and makes us what we are."
