Jae and Leona Beauty Collective offers a wide range of esthetician made, small batch, organic skin care and wellness products. Plant and botanical based, infused with Reiki healing and safe for most individuals to use.
Julia has been working within the beauty industry for over 20+ years offering holistic, integrative facial treatments and healing sessions.
In 2014, she opened Jae and Leona Beauty Collective, an exclusive skin care studio operating on the occupied land of the Kumeyaay in San Diego, California. Her desire was to center healing within beauty and wellness.
Aligning with her spirit guides and ancestors, Julia has been called to provide guidance to those looking to build a deeper connection to self through accessible healing, skin care and wellness. She strives to create a safe vessel for those who seek refuge from the inequitable Eurocentric beauty standards and to celebrate their own spirit and resilience.
The COVID-19 pandemic of 2020 was not kind to many businesses, especially those in the personal service industry. After numerous state mandated shut downs and legitimate health concerns it became overwhelming clear that Jae and Leona Beauty Collective needed to shut it's studio doors and focus it's energy on new offerings.
In the Fall of 2020, Julia released her first collection of signature skin care products under the Jae and Leona Beauty Collective brand. After years of working with different product lines, educating and creating her own mixtures for guests in the treatment room, Julia decided formulating a skin care line would be the next iteration of Jae and Leona Beauty Collective and her work within the skin care industry as a whole.
Taking her two decades of experience as an esthetician, extensive training in herbalism, Ayurveda and personal studies around plant magic, Julia has created a line based in plant and botanical therapeutics that are infused with Reiki healing.
For Julia, Jae and Leona Beauty Collective is a community where you are seen and supported to build a deeper relationship with yourself through self preservation, healing and liberation.
Julia currently resides on the stolen land of the Tongva people, Los Angeles, CA with her partner and fur babies. Jae and Leona Beauty Collective has been a joy to create and share with others. We're excited you're here with us on this journey.
