ABOUT US-SCROLL DOWN TO MEET ALL THE AMAZING TALENT
FOUNDER, WAX THERAPIST, SUGARISTA
Welcome to BENDover Wax Studio!
My name is Jamie Alderete, I am the founder of BENDover Wax Studio and focus my skills on waxing. I created the wax studio to provide high-quality waxing and other skin care services at a reasonable cost.
I have been in the industry for over 15 years and absolutely love what I do. Waxing is my passion! 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 and as painless as possible.
When I am not at the shop, I am spending time with my sweet family, meditating and getting out in nature. I am a native to the Pacific Northwest. I grew up in KIrkland, WA, but decided to plant my roots in Bend, OR. Best decision EVER!
I am blessed to be a part of such an incredible community.
Bend is such a magical place!
I look forward to building a long-lasting relationship with you!
MANAGER, 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!
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 & 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!
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!

Hello Bend babes! I’m Bekah Perkins. I came to Bend about 5 years ago from Portland and fell in love with all it has to offer. As much as I love the outdoors and breweries, my first love is skincare and waxing!

I’m here to make you feel comfortable in your skin, whether it be a quick and meticulous wax or pampering your skin.
If you're ready to treat yourself, I’m your girl!
