LAUREN HANSENBorn and raised two blocks away from Thesis and having spent much of my childhood in the 425 building, this space truly is home. My family has been in this neighborhood for over 100 years. Opening this business has been a dream extending beyond becoming an esthetician.Ten years in the industry has brought me to a place where I have significantly narrowed in on my focus. I am endlessly fascinated by skin, its functions, ever changing state and the people that inhabit it.My focus is knowing the person and their skin as deeply as I can, this allows me the tools to best help each client. I believe in meeting and supporting skin function through treatments, at home rituals and topical support.I found Marie Veronique a few years back, which fueled my interest in completely changing how I approach skin. Focusing on different angles of skin and facial function has brought me to working with the best approach I have ever used.Certified in Sculptural Facelift from Yakov Gershkovich.
I live in Missoula with my husband, two boys and dogs. This community is so special to me and I will always feel so grateful to be a part of it.
Having been in the esthetic industry for 9 years now, I have loved it all and also have been able to truly hone in on a few of my favorites. Brows! It’s what first got me interested in esthetics and that certainly hasn’t changed.Whether it is a brow threading or a microblading appointment, I love the transformation that it provides. Brows are finally getting the attention they deserved all along and I love to be a part of it.
Skin is another love of mine. Our skin and our skincare needs are changing throughout our life. I love being able to focus on each client individually and be able to work together to find the best results.I am a fifth generation Montanan and John Steinbeck put it best when describing our beautiful state. I grew up in Missoula and before moving back, spent four years working on my family’s cattle ranch.I live in the Rattlesnake on the street I grew up on with my two sons and husband. Surrounded by a growing collection of plants and our sweet dog.
