My name is Kami! My fiancé (soon to be husband come February 2022!) and I moved to Florida from Maryland back in 2021 and have loved being in the sunshine state ever since.
Something I think sets me apart from other lash techs is my relationships with my customers. Most of my customers become repeat clients that come back to me every few weeks for YEARS! So it's no joke when I say that my clients truly become a part of my life!
It's important to me that my clients don't feel like they're just another number to me. A problem that I've personally found going to these lash bar chains is that these places want to get clients in and out the door as quickly as possible. At Tampa Babe Beauty, I dedicate the necessary time needed to give you the best possible care, quality of service, and customer service I can.
Originally from Columbia MD where I was born and lived my whole life.
Believe it or not I actually first started out with a 10-year career as a karate and kickboxing instructor. My family owned and operated one of the biggest self-defense schools in the country! After over 20 years of training in martial arts starting at the age of 4, I've earned my 5th degree black belt in the Japanese art Tai jitsu and Ninjitsu.
While I definitely had tom boy tendencies growing up in a world of martial arts, I also always loved all things beauty! I got my first set of eyelash extensions back when I was 17 and completely fell in love with them! (As most clients do.) After a few years of consistently getting lash fills every 2 weeks I decided to train in lash extensions myself as a side job!
I was professionally trained one on one by a certified lash trainer and joined the lash team TNS Lashes where I was lashing for the past 3 years. The past 2 years with TNS Lashes I also became a fellow lash trainer and mentor.
Fast forward to Covid hitting and turning everyone's world upside down - unfortunately, after 35 years in operation, my family was forced to shut down our karate school's doors for good. My fiancé and I decided that if I had to start my career over anyways, we might as well be someplace where it's warm! So we decided to pack up and a few months later moved to Florida!
Leaving old clients that I had known for years and completely starting over in a new home state was a bit sad I'll admit. But I'm thrilled to have started my own beauty business, Tampa Babe Beauty, and to begin expanding my career in the beauty industry! I currently offer an array of lash/brow services and spray tans, and I hope to continue adding on to my services list soon!
I look forward to all the hopefully wonderful things to come and all the amazing new clients I'm sure to meet here in Florida! If you think I might be the beauty professional for you, feel free to reach out at any time!
