Amanda Hackett was born in St. Paul MN and raised in Austin, TX. In her teen years, she had a passion for makeup and beauty. After high school, she became intrigued by skincare when she entered the cosmetic field at Dillard’s. She attended Aveda Institute South studying Esthiology Biology and obtained her Esthetic License. Shortly after graduating she moved from the city life to the country life of Marshall Virginia in the late summer of 2013. She started her Esthetic career at a resort setting and later fell in a franchise spa to expand her clientele and experience. While working Amanda decided to attend Dermal Science international in Reston in 2016 to further advance her career of passion. She became certified in Laser and IPL skin rejuvenation and earned her Master Esthetic License. Amanda specializes in facials, advanced treatments & hair removal.

She is pretty easy going and starts each day with breakfast. She loves pickles, watermelon, pineapple and the color green. You may find her curled up on a rainy day binge-watching Southern Charm or anything on Crime TV. Don’t let the fact of her love for crime shows fool you,  if she had a superpower it would be to make any sad person happy. She loves entertaining and cooking for family and friends when she is not making your skin shine.

When we asked her what her favorite part of her job was she answered “making people glow and feel beautiful”. She fits right into Blake and Company because our motto is “Everyone is Beautiful We Just Make it Obvious”. We asked her, what her favorite product was and she responded “serums”. Face serums moisturize and brighten the skin. Eye serums help reduce the appearance of dark circles under the eyes. While she enjoys all aspects of her job as an esthetician she loves performing peel or microdermabrasion. She knows that having a great exfoliation treatment is instant gratification for her clients.
