Johnathan Hererra, @leelaskinandspa
Salon Success Academy, Upland, CA
Jonathan’s approach to skincare draws on the spiritual ethos of his Native American heritage as well as elements of the Hispanic, Queer and SoCal community. “Esthetics is so much more than skin deep. Practicing skincare is ultimately a commitment you make to your best self and a confirmation that you are worth the time money and effort,” he says. Not one to shy away from innovations, Johnathan proposes, “Maybe natural isn’t always better and science isn’t so bad.” Upon completing his esthetics program, he looks forward to opening a spa that helps clients look and feel their best.
