Facial Specialist Aesthetician
Eliza (eh-lee-zah) has been a part of The Bellini's Team since August 2021, and has brought a unique perspective to skincare! Having been born in Ukraine and speaking three languages, she spent years studying to be a pharmacist before discovering her love of esthetics. Her goal, much like our own, is to help people bring out their inner beauty by making them more confident in their skin! After years of waxing clients in Russia, she made her way to the United States, where she graduated from the Aveda Institute of Portland. Soon after, Eliza joined Bellini's! During her Apprenticeship, she has discovered her love of extractions and relaxing facial massages.
Her number one piece of beauty advice? "To properly take care of your beauty, you need to start with your heart and soul, otherwise no cosmetics will make a difference!"
Jillian's journey to Bellini's was a fateful encounter. She has lived in Portland for seven years, and after a brief conversation with Abby, ventured over to Bellini's to join the team. Her goal is to create a safe, healing, relaxing space for clients, and for clients to achieve their best skin goals.
She loves the instant gratification of waxing, and takes pride in having someone fall asleep during a good facial and massage. In her free time, Jillian enjoys cross-stitching, snuggling with her two cats, and attending live music around town.
Jillian's beauty advice is: "Find the things that make YOU feel beautiful and embrace them to the fullest. Having that confidence about yourself then spills over into so many other avenues of life and we all deserve to feel good about ourselves."
OWNER, LEAD AESTHETICIAN
Sonia grew up in Australia suffering from severe acne at 18, going to an aesthetician weekly to clear up her skin -- this is where her skin care journey began.
After getting her skin cleared & experiencing working with an aesthetician on a regular basis, she knew it was something she wanted to do as a career. She went to school in the United States & got her license in Portland, OR working under notable aestheticians, including a woman from France who taught her a lot about skin & European skin care.
It took years to find each skincare line Bellini’s offers; each offering their own technology & renowned for their own science. One thing that is definitely true is what works for one person doesn’t mean it will work for another person.
By being able to have the skills to understand skin, having the right brand products, and using trustworthy science, we know we can definitely get the best results for your skin. We can, have, and will make a difference in people’s lives. Just like when Sonia was 18 and her aesthetician changed the course of her life, Sonia hopes that Bellini’s can make a positive impact in clients’ lives.
