OWNER, WAX THERAPIST
Welcome to BENDover Wax Studio!
My name is Jamie Alderete, I am the owner and a wax therapist. I created the wax studio to provide high-quality waxing services at a reasonable cost.
I pride myself on integrity, being meticulous and making people feel comfortable in a what can be an awkward situation. Brazilian waxing is what I am known for; it's fast, painless as possible and I make sure to get every last hair.
MANAGER, WAX THERAPIST & MAKE UP ARTIST
Hi! My name is Desiree Silva. I am a Colorado native, and recent Oregon transplant. My husband and I made the move to Oregon in 2018, starting out in Portland. Like many others, when we discovered Bend, we fell in love with its beauty and culture. We are adventurous people, so naturally, we had to move here!
Being new to the area, I am excited to experience all the seasons and what they have to offer. I love skiing, snowshoeing, yoga, hiking, paddle-boarding, breweries and anything creative!
Now let's talk skin! Simply put, I LOVE being an esthetician! I have been in the beauty industry for 7 years, and am still blown away by how skincare, makeup, and waxing can truly transform someone's life. Helping others embrace their true, authentic selves is my genuine interest. I am very detail-oriented and am always striving for perfection in my work. If you need your makeup done for a special event or an exceptional wax, I am your girl!
I am looking forward to helping you achieve your beauty goals!
WAX THERAPIST & SPRAY TAN ARTIST
Hey y’all my name is Kayla Miller!
I am a Bend local and beauty enthusiast!
I have the privilege to partner with Jamie and her amazing company. I am excited to grow more as a Wax Therapist and get to know everyone that walks through our door.
Since I was tall enough to reach the bathroom counter, I remember falling in love with all things beauty! It’s such a deep passion of mine to make women beautiful inside and out. I want my clients to have confidence, that will radiate off their fresh, smooth glowing skin!
When I am not waxing , I am busy traveling to other countries, exploring different cultures and being outdoors! So if you can’t find me, which I promise you’ll always be able to get a hold of me, odds are I’m on top of a mountain, sitting in my hammock listening to some bird sing their songs!
I look forward to meeting you soon!!
WAX THERAPIST & SKIN SPECIALIST
Hi, my name is Siena! I grew up in Eugene and am newer to the Bend area - which I absolutely love! After spending a few years outside of the state to refine my craft of esthetics, I am happy to be back to my roots here in Oregon.
I am your go-to girl for all things facials and waxing. Whether you are coming in for a relaxing pick-me-up facial, or you are coming in for some change and looking for a fresh glow, I got you. I am passionate about skin and skincare!
When I am not at the spa, you can find me spending time with family, getting a kick-butt workout in, making friends, and exploring this amazing town and all it has to offer. I am really excited about meeting new people and am looking forward to all the relationships I will get to form with my clients!
Can't wait to meet you and help you along in your journey to feeling amazing with happy, healthy, glowing skin!
LASH, WAX & SKIN SPECIALIST
Hello B-E-A-utiful! My name is Shawna. I grew up in Rocklin, California in a community similar to Bend. After traveling and adventuring, I found Bend 14 years ago and fell in love with it. I love waking up each day to blue skies over an outdoor playground!
There's so much to do here, and it's so easy to drop everything and hit the trails, lakes, rivers, or slopes! I understand your spontaneous lifestyle, so I try to be available on short-notice. My availability is fairly flexible, so don't hesitate to reach out.
I'm experienced in addressing a variety of skincare needs so you get the most out of your facial! I obsess over skincare because, as a teenager, I constantly battled with acne and the scarring it left behind. Now as an adult, I find skincare to be even more tricky, especially in our dry, high-desert climate. I am also excited to offer lash extensions to kick up the glam a few notches!
My most important goal is to leave each client happy and feeling good about themselves. I’m very thorough, and I strive to be the best at any of the services I offer my clients. I look forward to helping you feel and look your best!
My name is Katie, and I'm originally from Portland, Oregon. Since my move, I am loving the drier climate and smaller community of Bend!
My love for helping people has motivated me to enter this profession. I have been practicing massage for 8 years, and am passionate about meeting my clients' individual needs to bring healing and happiness!
I enjoy all the benefits of Bend life! My giant fur baby, Chewy, and I adventure on the nearby trails and lakes as often as possible (and occasionally reward ourselves afterwards with a trip to one of the local breweries). When we're not on the go, relaxing at home - Netflix and sweats! - is a ritual for us.
To the wonderful people living in or visiting Bend, I look forward to serving you!
NURSE - FNP
Hi, my name is Kendra Owens! I am a Wisconsin native, and moved to Bend in 2014 to be near my husband’s family. We have been married for 5 beautiful years, and have an energetic 2-year-old, as well as 2 fun-loving dogs.
I am a Family Nurse Practitioner - I graduated from Concordia University in Milwaukee, WI, with my Masters of Nursing in 2013. I currently work full-time at a local family practice as a Nurse Practitioner.
Recently, I wanted to challenge myself and decided to take my education further. In 2019, I became certified in injecting neuromodulators (Botox and Dysport) and fillers. I have fallen in love with this part of my practice. I love making people feel beautiful both inside and out.
Spending time consulting with my patients prior to any treatments has turned out to be one of the biggest highlights in this business for me - I enjoy assessing your needs and coming up with the best plan forward possible, as I am very detail-oriented and strive for excellence with every treatment.
For fun, I love to be outdoors hiking, paddle boarding, camping, running and snowboarding. I am passionate about traveling and has been fortunate enough to travel all over Europe, Mexico and even spent some time volunteering with Hope without Borders in Tanzania, Africa.
I look forward to boosting your glow!
SUGARING, WAX & SKIN THERAPIST
Hi, my name is Alana! (Pronounced uh-lay-nuh) I grew up in Oregon, however, I met my husband in North California, which is where we lived until the longing for home became too strong! We landed in Bend in 2016 and fell in love with it! It has proven to be an amazing place to raise our three kiddos.
Being an esthetician and making people feel good is my passion! As an esthetician we have a "license to touch" - It is that therapeutic touch that can heal more than just the skin. I love doing my work through a holistic and environmental approach, which is why sugaring is my primary focus for hair removal.
Sugaring is an ancient method which uses just 3 ingredients- sugar, lemon and water. It's water soluble, all natural, minimal waste and great for all skin types, including sensitive. You'll also find me working with pressure points and Gua Sha, which I love to incorporate into my facials and scalp treatments.
I cannot wait to meet you, and make you feel good!
