In 1982 Antoinette graduated high school and was already in Cosmetology school where she graduated in 1983. Having built up a nail clientele in school she started working right away for 22 years. Having 70 standing clients who trusted her when she trained in 1991 with Bonnie Dirks (Perma Cosmetics in Beverly Hills) she began working in the permanent makeup field.
In 2000 she worked at Bella A’ More Spa & Salon for 6 years. Doing some traveling (Newport Beach / Studio City / Encino / Westlake / Agoura) and working in other places, she became so busy in Simi Valley it was time to open a place of her own.
