Veri was my table mate at a weeklong PMU training a few years ago and we're remained friends ever since. Veri and her mom, Rosemary, are the power couple who own two vegan salon locations called The Waxing Spot in Westport and Greenwich (CosCob). With nearly 28,000 followers on Instagram and an incredibly talented team, Veri is making herself known in the PMU world with her dedication to excellence and continuing her PMU education with some of the best trainers in the world. One of my favorite things about her is her willingness to share information and be a great sounding board to bounce ideas off of, in this industry where artists are generally so secretive about their craft, Veri breaks the mold and sets an example that knowledge is power and community is everything.
On a personal note she has a wonderful family with two young boys and a puppy and she and her husband are remodeling their forever home one room at a time so if you follow along on her Instagram stories you'll see those cuties, she'll share her skincare tips and outfit inspiration as well as her home renovation and of course the most amazing lash lifts and PMU brows in the north! She is as pretty on the inside as she is on the outside and her professionalism is sure to inspire you. If you're in the area you should absolutely go see her and if you do, give her a big uncomfortable hug from me too!
