DeeDee Carter is a native New Yorker currently residing in Raleigh. She originally wanted to become an esthetician because of her desire to become a makeup artist, but while enrolled at Miller-Motte College she fell in love with waxing instead. After graduating in 2016 she soon developed a specialty in brow waxing, henna brows, and lash and brow tinting. As a skincare professional she feels it is important to make sure clients leave with a renewed sense of confidence and self-esteem, as well as glowing skin. She is passionate about disability rights because she has two disabled siblings which prompted her to obtain CPR, First Aid and AED certification. She also looks forward to attending nursing school in the future!
