About Joi Harrison, Holistic CIDESCO
Accredited Aesthetician at Saving Faces in Cary
As a young girl, I dreamed of being a professional stylist and cosmetic artist in the fashion industry. I cultivated that dream by attending The Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. While attending F.I.T., I met a design major who was inspired by my artistic ability and asked me to be his cosmetic artist for his local runway shows. It was there I found my true passion.
After college, I moved to Columbus, Ohio and continued working in the advertising industry. Although I enjoyed advertising, I longed to be expressing my creativity in different ways. I attended the Ohio State School of Cosmetology and received my Managing Esthetician license. I was hired by a well-known dayspa upon graduation and would become the director of education and training and master CIDESCO-accredited Aesthetician for 12 years.
I enjoy educating people about their skin and helping in their journey to discover the skin they desire. By helping her become more aware of how her lifestyle choices, stress level, diet and skincare routine play an important role in her overall health, we can discover how she can create changes to allow her skin to flourish. Once her skin shows its true beauty, it is time to find ways to accent her beautiful eyes or her high cheek bones with simple mineral cosmetic tips. It is truly a pleasure to help clients who are apprehensive about wearing cosmetics. When they are given simple techniques they can manage with their busy lifestyles, they see it doesn’t take a drawer full of cosmetics to achieve simple beauty.
