Born and raised in Albuquerque, NM, Louisa is a graduate of CNM with an associate’s degree in cosmetology and licensed in NM.
Currently, Louisa specializes in acrylic nails and she is very good at it! She has many traits that set her apart from other nail technicians in Albuquerque. Mainly, she cares about her client’s nail health and she does not use an electric drill to speed up the process. Louisa knows it is all about good application, and she prefers to sculpt the acrylic nails - unless requested otherwise.
Prior to working Uniquely Elegant Salon Spa, Louisa worked at one of the full nail salons here in Albuquerque. She worked her way up to active supervisor, and began to train, help and teach many of the new employees the art and love of Nail Design. For Louisa, it was like she had been granted the freedom and space to be herself, which was the artist within, and free to use many different techniques to create art. Her favorite part of working with nails is getting to know her clients and understanding the needs of their nails..
Aside from nails, she also does face and body waxing and enjoys shaping eyebrows.
Outside of work she enjoys anything to with the great outdoors. She also likes traveling the state of NM, camping and just seeing the sites.
Services she performs: Acrylic nails (sculptured, overlay), soft gel manicures and pedicures (gel polish), regular polish manicures and pedicures, nail repairs and nail art, waxing of the face and body.
