Meet Gina Harper of Serendipity Skincare And Waxing Studio in Newton

Today we’d like to introduce you to Gina Harper.

Gina , can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I started in a single room, by myself with a pot of organic hard wax and few homemade Skincare products. I worked for a larger skincare salon where I got great hands on experience. When the other salon I worked for closed it’s doors I went off on my own. I had a small group of clients who followed me. My five star Yelp reviews have helped me grow my business.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
To be honest, the current challenge is managing business operations as an owner, versus being an employee… Honestly, I don’t like paperwork and prefer to concentrate on my clients. That’s all part of being a business owner though!

Please tell us about Serendipity Skincare And Waxing Studio .
My focus is on educating my clients to use natural, organic products that are results driven. I love providing deeply relaxing facials and quick and painless waxing. I am always continuing my education and learning the latest technologies and techniques in the skincare industry. I absolutely love what I do and I am always happy to educate my clients. I have also started teaching hands on, DIY Skincare workshops.

If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
I’ve learned to be patient. Part of running a successful business is that you want it all done right away, but good things take time… sometimes lots of time.
