MY GOAL IS TO
TRANSFORM, TEACH &
EMPOWER YOU, TO
MAKE FEELING PRETTY
Hi! I’m Kara Sánchez Reed and I’m your Go-to-Girl for all things beauty in Austin, Texas.
I've spent my life in this industry! From doing my first professional makeup job at 14 to training for brands like Anastasia and Laura Mercier on a world stage. When asked where my passion for brows came from, it has to be a credit to my Nana. She had Alopecia and didn't have brows but wouldn't be seen without them, and I grew up across the hall watching her daily routine. I've been doing brows since 1997 and get insanely excited about the impact they make on each face I touch and am thrilled that everyone is finally on the brow train now too!
I'm a wife, a Pommy Mommy, a renovator and now a bonafide plant lady over 100 indoor plants that I have kept alive to my Mom’s surprise and yes, I am judging your eyebrows when we chat!
I am grateful for a supportive champion of a husband and loving fur-family, (if you tune into my daily instastories, you’ll love them too). I'm grateful for my incredibly talented team, for the challenges of owning a thriving brick & mortar which wouldn't be possible without the kindest, most loyal clientele from all over the country and I'm grateful for you so until we meet, thanks for stopping by!

MY love of beauty
Began at age 14 in
Michigan & has
continued for the
last 25 years .
Finding someone who represents your brand the way you do, works hard right along with you and someone you can trust with your shop has been the hardest part of staffing, until I met Maddi. She walked in for her interview and I immediately knew she was the right amount of creativity wrapped in a stylish shell. She doesn’t come across like she knows everything but she actually can do anything. She’s got a great sense of humor and is mature beyond her age which to me speaks to how she was raised.
Maddi is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin with a BA in Studio Art. She does so much more than answer the phone and numb our clients, Maddi is our Creative Director so creates our graphics, campaigns, preps our photos for social and is a scheduling magician! She does it all with kindness and professionalism, one Post-it at a time!
