My name is Lauren Hatley, owner of Skintuition. I have been a licensed esthetician since 2001. Over the years, I have accumulated extensive experience in Laser Hair Removal, Skin Care, Waxing and Airbrush Tanning. I started my training in Laser Hair Removal in 2002, and have performed thousands of Laser Hair Removal treatments since. I am an expert in speed waxing techniques, including Brazilian Waxing. I have been doing Airbrush Tanning since it first came out in 2002. I have tried almost every Airbrush Tanning Solution out there, and have been able to perfect my technique on thousands of happy clients! 

 

After years in the Spa industry, I decided to open up my own business in 2008. In 2014, I changed locations and opened up Skintuition. I love having the opportunity everyday to provide services to the most wonderful group of clients that I could possibly dream of!

Sarah Crossley

My name is Sarah Crossley and I am a licensed esthetician. I have an utmost passion for what I do. From a very young age I have always been fascinated with fashion and the beauty industry and how it can change peoples lives. Making people feel beautiful and amazing is the most rewarding job there is. I feel that through esthetics it is possible to feel as beautiful on the outside as you are on the inside and it is my ultimate goal to make my clients walk out feeling gorgeous.

I started Airbrush Tanning in 2009 and consider it to be one of my specialties. I am NTTI (Nation Tanning Training Institute) Certified and Smart Tan Certified and am very knowledgeable in sunless tanning. I have experience with several different sunless brands and am able to really customize the Airbrush Tanning experience to meet any client’s needs. All skin tones and types can achieve a perfect sun kissed glow and I love to help make that happen!Along with Airbrush Tanning, I also have gained knowledge in waxing and skincare. I started working for Lauren Hatley in 2012 where I began an apprenticeship for my Esthetician License, which I completed in 2014. Through my apprenticeship I have learned the true Skintuition technique. I am always on the hunt for the newest techniques and products and because of this am always looking to continue with my education. It is very important to me in the industry to stay current. I love what I do and strive to be my best so I can provide my clients with an amazing experience and amazing results.

When I’m not at Skintuition I enjoy staying active, shopping, and browsing the Internet. I have a black lab/pitbull mix named Roxy that I love to take on car rides and Starbucks runs with me (drive thru of course). I am obsessed with YouTube and follow all the beauty gurus and even when I am not working I find myself researching makeup and skincare. I also love to blog! Take a look at, my blog , to read about all the beauty things that i am currently obsessing over.

Michaeline Holman

My name is Michaeline Holman and I grew up in the small town of Brooklyn Michigan. I have always had a love for beauty and esthetics ever since I was a young girl, first trying out my hand at dollar store store makeup. Thankfully, both my skills as a professional, and taste in makeup, have drastically improved! 


For 4 years in my early 20s, I was a top-selling independent consultant for a skincare company which fueled both my product knowledge, and my desire to pursue a career as an Esthetician so I could share my love for naturally beautiful skin on a more personal level. I received my license in Esthetics in December of 2017 after graduating from Douglas J Aveda Institute in Royal Oak at the top of my class.



I enjoy making people feel fantastic about themselves and am passionate about educating and pointing clients in the right direction when it comes to healthy, happy skin! I believe that if you are confident with your appearance, you are more likely to be confident in all aspects of your life. I am constantly attempting to learn new techniques when it comes to esthetics because I know that there is always room to grow. 



When I’m not working at Skintuition or doing makeup at weddings or other venues, I have my hands full at home with my son Levi, daughter Josephine, pit-mix Piper, and husband, Jamie. I also try to lead a fairly active and healthy lifestyle through diet and exercise, but I am quite the at-home chef and love to get creative in the kitchen. I love rock music and consider myself to be an old soul. 



I’m excited to serve you and help with any of your skincare concerns!

Amy Palomar

My name is Amy Palomar and I discovered my passion for waxing while in school. After receiving my Esthetician’s License I focused my talents on eyebrows and full body waxing. I continue to educate myself on the latest in techniques and products. 


I also enjoy being up to date on the latest Skin Care and Makeup trends. 


I can be found at a number of places in the Metro Detroit area supporting and / or participating in the arts. In a previous life I was a night-life photographer covering some of the most important concerts and events of the time. Now I mostly photograph my two cats Ozzie and Meep. 


Having grown up in Royal Oak I am proud to call the mitten home and I am excited to assist you in any way I can.

Pam Kalsi

My name is Pam Kalsi and I am a licensed esthetician. I grew up in Canada and have been living in Michigan for the last 11 years. It is now home for my husband, my 2 daughters and myself. I am passionate just about all things in the esthetics field, especially eyebrow microblading and eyelash extensions. I love the attention to detail and precision it takes to apply a beautiful set of eyelash extensions. I feel thankful that I get to do what I love everyday. It is the best feeling when you see a smile on a clients face when they leave. In my free time I like to spend time with my family friends, cook, watch tv and travel. 

Jordan Poma

I graduated from Douglas J Aveda Institute in 2012 with my cosmetology and esthetician license, I also have obtained my license to teach esthetics and cosmetology in 2014. My most recent license is in Massage therapy(2017). I have been practicing esthetics since 2012 and have taught esthetics. I provide a vast array of services including full body waxing, lash extensions, facials, and airbrush tanning. I have extensive training and specialize in Brazilian waxing, brows. Since 2017, I have gotten certified through Borboleta Beauty in classic and volume lash extensions.


I am a Rochester Michigan native. When I’m not practicing esthetic services, I enjoy going to barre classes, watching reruns of the O.C. (or Netflix in general), eating at Hibachi House (and drinking the sangria-which I highly recommend), and hanging out with my adorable dog! One day I aspire to become a Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader (although I need to lay off the sweets)


“Being an esthetician allows me the opportunity to meet new people, help them in a relaxing environment and offer a variety of services. Each day is a new day to enrich someone’s experience.”

Megan Messer

 

My name is Megan Messer I am from Clarkston Mi, I have been a licensed esthetician since 2013 and a licensed Esthi educator since 2016. I have always had a strong passion for skin care and everything this industry has to offer, in high school I was the friend that everyone came to with their skin care questions and concerns which is when I realized I wanted to pursue a career as an esthetician and started my program right out of high school. Upon getting licensed I have obtained a lot of experience and education to grow my skills and knowledge as a professional in skin care, full body waxing and various other services. I taught esthetics for a year and a half at Douglas J Aveda but stepped away to pursue my true passion, providing services so people can feel beautiful and confident about themselves. Truly a rewarding job!

 

Throughout the years I have grown my skills by learning many new techniques from various facials, types of massage and being able to blend my knowledge into something of my own to create a personalized unique experience for my guests.

 

When I'm not working I'm spending time with my dog Bristol who is a 4 year old boxer mix that I rescued off the side of the road when she was 3 weeks old. I love going to concerts, craft shows, and anything involving food! When I'm not doing any of those activities I'm relaxing and binge watching Netflix.

Meg McHale

My name is Megan McHale (Meg for short here at Skintuition), and I am a licensed Esthetician. I took an interest in Esthetics after having personal problems of my own with my skin. After graduating, I explored other areas of esthetics I thought I’d be interested in, such as lash extensions. I love lashes, although I found something I love even more. Airbrush tanning. My mom inspired me to explore this field because she had skin cancer in 3 spots on her body and encouraged me to take care of my skin now instead of paying for it later. This is how my dream came together. I got certified in airbrush tanning in 2016 and have been spraying ever since. I love to make people feel their absolute best and airbrush tanning does just that-diminishes many skin imperfections including acne, and my favorite, cellulite! Airbrush tanning is also the best way to get a natural looking tan safely and in under 15 minutes. 


When I’m not spraying, I am one of the best waitresses at the Island Bar and Grill, I am watching my favorite shows on Netflix, hanging out with friends, and caring for my baby sugar gliders, Hades and Persephone.
