Aloha! My name is Dakota and I am an esthetician.
I was born and raised in Gallup, New Mexico. My mom, sister and I moved to Arizona in September of 2010, where I finished my final year of high school online.
My mother has been a hairstylist since she was eighteen, so I was raised in the beauty industry. I graduated from the Steiner Institute of Esthetics in 2013. During the esthetics program I found my passion for skin care and what it can do for people mentally. My passion is helping people feel good about themselves. This is what helped me find my love for skincare and esthetics overall. After graduating from Steiner Institute of Esthetics, I became a booth renter at a salon in Buckeye, Arizona.
I love to customize facials for each person, so whatever your skin needs are we will work together to achieve your goals. Whether you are looking for a relaxing facial to feel pampered or wanting something more abrasive, I can do both! I like doing extractions when needed and getting my clients on a skin care plan. I can’t wait to use Eminence, I’ve had the privilege of using some of their products and they’re by far, the most amazing product line!
I have a one year old son who loves to be outside. We call him our nature boy. Our family loves to be outdoors swimming, hiking, or just playing and enjoying the weather. During my time off I enjoy spending my days with family and friends, and reading books to my son.
I am extremely excited to start my next chapter as part of the ‘ohana here at Hawaiian Experience Spa as an esthetician! I’m looking forward to meeting new people and giving them the skincare treatment they deserve. I can’t wait to spend the next few years growing as part of the ohana, and as a person in general. I would one day like to achieve my goal of becoming an Ali’i or Ali’i Nui at the Hawaiian Experience Spa in the future.
Dakota is the leader of team Ho’okahi, which means one.
