Our Staff

Jessie Carney, Owner

Jessie  has been in the spa industry for over 17 years. Much of her time has been spent managing and practicing at luxury, destination resort spas throughout the western United States where a holistic approach is a specialty. With a strong commitment to ongoing training, she combines her passion for and natural ability with skin, and her extensive skill set in the areas of holistic skincare. 

In 2012 she opened her own business in New York- The Skin Bar, where clients come for truly customized holistic skincare, permanent makeup, organic waxing (sugaring), luxurious body treatments, lash and brow services and more- all using cruelty free, nutrient dense products. Within permanent makeup, Jessie offers unique services such as Microblading, Ombre Eyebrows, 3D Areola Re-pigmentation for breast cancer survivors, CIT (Microneedling), Eliminink Tattoo Removal, and Scalp Re-pigmentation, eyebrow, eyeliner, lip, and blush application. 

Jessie began her career as a Massage Therapist in Crestone, Colorado in a retreat style, full immersion massage school and dojo. She expanded her knowledge and education base at destination resort spa settings for over a decade in Arizona, Colorado and California. In a continued commitment to expand her artistic base, she received advanced training at The Beau Institute, the premiere school for permanent makeup in Mount Laurel, New Jersey. She trained exclusively with the school’s founder, Rose Marie Prudente-Beauchemin who has more than 25 years of experience in micro-pigmentation. She completed more advanced training for permanent makeup in Newport, Rhode Island over 5 years ago. Most recently Jessie has added to her ever continuing education, PhiBrows-Microblading Academy. She is excited to now offer both permanent makeup cosmetics with a hand held method, as well as the specialized machine method. 

As a result of the Prudente-Beauchemin academic, PhiBrows, and practicum regimen, Jessie is able to offer her clients the very best permanent makeup services available today. As a cancer survivor herself, Jessie is honored to use her knowledge to help clients feel their best with areola re-pigmentation and scar camouflage.
