WELCOME TO BARE,

BLADE

&

BRUSH 

 BARE, BLADE & BRUSH was established in 2018 by Dayton Native, Jackie Klein, a seasoned beauty industry veteran of almost 20 years. She carries dual licensing in Cosmetology and Permanent Makeup.

 

So how and why did BARE, BLADE & BRUSH come into fruition? Let's just say, it had been a very long time in the making. From the  age of 13 she had made so many wonderful and life-changing beauty discoveries, and at 43 she knew it was time to share what she had learned and honed over the years. It was time for something she could call her own. Time to evolve and grow.  Everything happens for a reason....or hundreds of reasons in Jackie's case. It all began 30 years ago in the heart of a young 13 year-old girl holding an eyelash curler in one hand, mascara wand in the other...in awe of what she was seeing in the mirror's reflection.....

WAXING. MICROBLADING. MAKEUP
 

THE STORY

BLADE

 AT NINETEEN, I DECIDED TO SHAVE MY EYEBROWS OFF. YES, YOU READ THAT RIGHT. I PICKED UP A RAZOR AND SHAVED THEM COMPLETELY OFF. CRAZY, I KNOW! WHAT I DID NOT REALIZE WAS THAT BY SHAVING THEM OFF REPEATEDLY, EVENTUALLY THEY WOULD NEVER GROW BACK, FULLY.  OVER THE YEARS, I HAD  LEARNED TO MASTER DRAWING THEM ON AND FILLING THEM IN. IN 2010, I FINALLY  MADE AN APPOINTMENT TO HAVE THEM COSMETICALLY TATTOOED. BEST DECISION EVER. I WOULD SPEND THAT MONEY ALL OVER AGAIN. WAKING UP EVERYDAY WITH BEAUTIFUL FULL BROWS IS SOMETHING EVERY WOMAN WANTS AND DESERVES.

 

IN 2018, I FOLLOWED MY HEART AND WENT AFTER A DREAM I HAVE HAD SINCE  2010. I BECAME CERTIFIED IN THE ART OF MICROBLADING FOR EYEBROWS, WHICH IS A FORM OF TATTOOING/PERMANENT MAKEUP. IN 2019 I CERTIFIED IN MACHINE WORK WHICH ENABLED ME TO DO POWDER BROWS, OMBRE POWDER BROWS AND COMBINATION BROWS.  THIS IS ALL JUST THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG . IN 2020 I PLAN TO CERTIFY IN MORE TECHNIQUES SUCH AS LIPBLUSH (AQUARELLE LIPS) AND EYELINER TATTOOING.

I HAD MY FIRST  FULL BRAZILIAN WAX WHEN I WAS 34 YEARS OLD.  I WAS SOLD.  I WOULD HAVE STARTED WAXING IN MY LATE TEENS/EARLY TWENTIES IF I HAD KNOWN ALL OF THE BENEFITS!  MAYBE I DID KNOW, BUT SOMEWHERE ALONG THE WAY, I MUST HAVE BEEN DETERRED BY SOMEONE'S HORROR STORY OF A BRAZILIAN WAX GONE WRONG. MAYBE I WAS EMBARRASSED FOR SOME STRANGER TO SEE ME NAKED. LADIES, LET ME TELL YOU...DON'T BE SCARED!! THE PAIN IS TOLERABLE AND GETS EASIER EACH TIME, I SWEAR. AS FOR WORRYING ABOUT A STRANGER SEEING YOUR LADY BITS - THAT PART GETS EASIER TOO.  I KNOW, BECAUSE I WAS THERE ONCE. THESE DAYS, MY WAX LADY AND I HOLD THE FUNNIEST CONVERSATIONS  ABOUT LITERALLY EVERYTHING - ALL WHILE WE TRADE SERVICES ON EACH OTHER. IT'S FANTASTIC! WAXING SAVES ME SO MUCH TIME, ENERGY AND FRUSTRATION. OVER TIME, HAIR WILL GROW IN FINER, SOFTER, AND MORE SPARSE. YOUR SKIN FEELS BABY SOFT AND SO SMOOTH. WHO DOESN'T WANT THAT? I KNEW I HAD TO SHARE THIS ANCIENT BEAUTY SECRET WITH THE WORLD, AS WELL AS ALL BODY WAXING. 

SO, THROW THOSE RAZORS AWAY LADIES, AND DON'T BE AFRAID TO GO BARE!

BRUSH

MY LOVE FOR ALL THINGS BEAUTY STARTED WITH MY DISCOVERY OF AN EYELASH CURLER AND BEAUTY CULT CLASSIC MAYBELLINE GREAT LASH MASCARA AT THE TENDER AGE OF 13 (SORRY DAD). WHAT AN EYE-OPENER. PUN TOTALLY INTENDED.

 

MAKEUP WAS ACTUALLY MY FIRST LOVE, AND I KNEW I WANTED TO SHARE THIS NEW FOUND PASSION WITH THE WORLD.  NOW, AT 43, I AM A SELF-TAUGHT, FREELANCE MAKEUP ARTIST WITH  20 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE.  FROM THE VERY FIRST TIME I PICKED UP A BRUSH, I SAW WHAT SEEMED TO BE  MAGIC POUR OUT OF ME. I HAVEN'T LOOKED BACK.
