September 15 through October 15 is when Hispanic Heritage is widely celebrated throughout America. Today, we're going to touch base on all things festive and get some insight from our very own Hispanic Waxologist- Adriana Gomez-Flores!
History of Celebration
National Hispanic Heritage Month is annually celebrated from September 15 to October 15 in the United States for recognizing the contributions and influence of Hispanic Americans to the history, culture, and achievements of the United States. Hispanic Heritage Month provides an additional opportunity to explore the incredible impact Latinas and Latinos have had on the United States for generations. Today, the Latino population in the United States today is over 60 million, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. This makes up 18.9% of the total population and is the largest racial or ethnic group. Latinos continue to help fuel our economy and enrich our nation as entrepreneurs, athletes, artists, entertainers, scientists, public servants, and much more.
Grandville Waxologist & Sugarist, Adriana
Adriana started her journey in 2021 and joined our Grandville team this October! She currently specializes in waxing and facials, as well as HydraFacials. "I love everything about the beauty industry! I love to learn new things and make everyone feel comfortable in their own skin!". When Adriana's not at work, she's most likely adding to her funky earring collection!
Why our fave Latina Waxologist got started in the industry
“I've always loved watching my mom and older sister do their makeup and skincare which influenced me to offer makeup services to the Hispanic ladies in our community for a discounted price. When going into esthetician school I immediately fell in love with hair removal. I love serving my community and helping these beautiful people feel confident and comfortable in and out of the treatment room. Inclusivity is important because individuals see these people look like them or even speak the same language as them they feel seen and heard which can make them feel beautiful and confident.”
We love our girl Adriana, and we hope you do too! You can book your next appointment with her here. (psst... if it's a Platinum HydraFacial appointment, we'll throw in 50% off!) See ya next week when we dive into Lyna"s Self Care Column!
