About

Willie Acklin Esthetician
Graduate of San Francisco Institute of Esthetics & Cosmetology
I listen to my clients needs
I love the beauty industry
I have over 15 years experience of working as a Makeup Artist (MUA) and have worked in the fashion/beauty industry in various capacities.
I have experience working behind the scenes with Runway Fashion Shows in California, Seattle, the Virgin Islands and recently I participated in D.C. FASHION WEEK Fall 2011. In addition I’ve worked with professional photographers providing make-up services for models, worked behind the scenes as a MUA at Las Vegas Revues. Other areas of MUA have been in the bridal market, celebrity clients and private consultations where I have provided Client Make-Over’s. I also have several years of retail experience with MAC, Bobbi Brown, Professionals, Laura Mercier, Vincent Longo, and Too Faced Cosmetics.
After working for so many years as a MUA I decided to explore the different avenues of the industry and become a licensed Esthetician.

I attended San Francisco Institute of Esthetics & Cosmetology (SFIEC), a Paul Mitchell Partner
School. I was told by the lead Esthetician at SFIEC that my touch and pressure is what she has been waiting for many years. I attribute her compliment to previous years of working with clients. I am also a talented Brow Artist, I love doing brows! I also tint. I am Being True Cosmetics Certified as well as Brazilian Waxing Certified, as well as Damone Roberts Eyebrow Master Class certified, and have an MBA in eyebrow shaping.
