Meet Angelika Pagan

Today we’d like to introduce you to Angelika Pagan.

Hi Angelika, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
I originally started as a massage therapist, 1000% the complete opposite of what I’m doing now. I did that for about 11 years while also bartending nights. My last massage job was at a medspa in 2017 and at that time, I was itching to get into the esthetician world and get my hands on some brows. I quickly realized that there was no room for growth out of massage therapy where I was at and was ready to just do my own thing. I started my business in 2018.

My original focus was lash extensions and brow shaping but it has transformed over the last year and a half to so much more. Brow lamination is my number one service right now and it’s life-changing. I’ve never been happier… 2020 was, as we all know, a shit show to say the least, and for me a blessing and a curse as far as my business goes. I fully removed myself from the bar industry and completely dove headfirst into my business for the first time in three years. As the bar industry provided me with amazing friendships, lots of alcohol lol and really great money, the late nights were killing me and the environment itself was just not for me anymore. So here I am, doing brows all day everyday. 🙂

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
Once I quit my massage job. I needed something new. A change of scenery, so after living in San Diego for nine years, I picked up and moved to Encinitas, California, where I knew a total of two humans, and decided to start my business there. Like an idiot. Hahaha, to be fully honest, it was a deep struggle for two solid years. I was working nights at three different bars and taking clients during the day. I was burning myself out and still felt like I was drowning mentally and financially. After fighting myself the last six months, I finally made the decision to move back down to San Diego. And despite covid… has been smooth sailing ever since. Phew!

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I specialize in brow lamination, which is a chemical treatment that relaxes the brow hair into a new shape, resulting in a fluffy, fuller lifted brow. AKA The brow lift. The results are truly amazing and it can be done on any hair type. I also do Lash lifts, lash extensions! Amazing thing about the beauty industry is that it’s constantly changing and growing. There’s always some new technique to learn or new product line that comes out, and I make my education a top priority. I’m always taking the latest classes and learning from the best of the best. I’m proud of what I have accomplished so far and I love each and everyone of my clients. Every day that I go to “work” I feel like I’m just going to hang out with all my friends and make them pretty. I am so deeply grateful for each and every one of them. Especially the ones who have been with me since day one! Couldn’t love you more.

What are your plans for the future?
I’m looking to rebrand myself and my business very soon. Expansion as well in the near future. I am so excited that I can even say my business is finally going in this direction. Lots of photoshoots and sensual brows coming your way. 🙃
