Erin joined Bare Essentials as Laurie‘s maternity leave cover when Stella was first born in 2014. She had been an esthetician for over 10 years, and had been working in retail/cosmetics when she decided to take the leap with Laurie and become her second full-time esthetician. You’ll often find Erin with a new funky hair colour — purple, magenta, peach… what’s next? Her light-hearted personality is not reflective of her waxing skills, so don’t fret, you’re in great hands when you book with Erin.

Heidi has been with the bare squad since 2017 and has quickly established her spot on the team. If you think you’re seeing things, you're not — her eyeglass frames have no lenses in them. Chat her up about her dog, Dakota, or her love of country music and before you know it, your appointment will be done. Heidi is also the self-proclaimed queen of lash tints! Check out her work on our Instagram feed.

Veronica is our resident Frenchie lover and funny-face maker. She’s goofy, but compassionate; a sweetheart, but a very skilled and experienced waxer. Get her talking about her dog Remmington and you won't run out of conversation! Veronica is currently on maternity leave and will be back in 2019!

Victoria may look like Snow White, and is quiet and low key, but she’s become one of our most popular aestheticians at BE Waterloo. Tori is very laid back and easy to talk to, and is well-versed in what you should do post-wax to make sure you get the results you want! Looking for a killer spray tan? Book tori ahead of time, because she’s definitely a hot commodity.
