Nichole and Katrina met in 2011, and over the years learned that they shared a love for health, wellness and medical aesthetics. They both progressed in their careers and their crafts, opening separate small businesses in Gig Harbor, WA. Nichole steadfastly built her business and quickly expanded her services and to specialize in semi-permanent make up artistry such as microblading. Katrina’s “botox and filler” business started booming as well, and they both were able to build their business and clientele solely on reputation and client referrals for the first several years.
In 2018 they started sharing a work space, and during this time they engaged in multiple discussion about their visions for the future of medical aesthetics and semi-permanent make up, along with all things health and wellness. They quickly realized their visions were parallel and they began making plans to launch a state-of-the-art aesthetics facility in down town Gig Harbor that would meet the needs of the community and their clients.
When 3200 Tarabochia became available, they knew the space fit the vision perfectly. They promptly secured the space, began construction and started recruiting to make Haven Beauty Lab what it is today.
Katrina and Nichole wanted not only to support local small businesses, but also to inspire people to follow their dreams of business ownership – all while doing what they love. They hand-picked six local small business owners to join their venture, and came together to create what is now known as Haven Beauty Lab.
Every practitioner at Haven Beauty Lab commits to a standard of excellence every day. They only practice evidence-based care and they each provide a variety of proven treatment options. It is an upscale, yet comfortable environment for community members to come for their self-care and to feel great about their health and wellness.
