Scotia Kauppi, owner of Sweet Cherry Spa, and workshop facilitator from Plan Your Day 2019.
Back in the fall we asked Scotia some questions to find out more about her and what she does at Sweet Cherry Spa.
What is your job title?
I am a certified esthetician, makeup artist, nail technician and lash technician: and have been for 10+ years! I have owned Sweet Cherry Spa for 4 years and have won many achievements such as voted Top 3 Nail salons in Thunder Bay 3 years in a row, best brazilian wax in Thunder Bay on Yelp.ca, and nominated for 2018's best new business excellence award and 2018 NOVA best new business.
What is your favourite part of your job?
I love creating looks for my brides to go with their wedding day, whether it be a young & in love natural look to a fully themed dramatic look for those who are offbeat brides: with nails to match!
What is the hardest part of your job?
Not getting to see the finished look sometimes and having to wait months to see pics! I love seeing how everyone looks in their dresses with full hair, makeup, nails and love!
My favourite book is…
The Mythos behind Lord of the Rings
If I could talk to my 17 year old self I would say…
Get rid of that loser and go visit your future husband more at the high school up the street.
My worst habit is…
Forgetting that I need self care too, especially when I work in a self care business
The all-time best gift I’ve ever received is…
My step kids calling me Mummy
My dream wedding destination is…
The Witchery By the Castle in Edinburgh, Scotland then backpacking to Germany for the Wacken Festival
As you can see, Scotia is a pro and loves what she does.
You can find her at Sweet Cherry Spa, Suite 23 Victoriaville Mall, 700 Victoria Avenue E, Thunder Bay, ON
