Nominees for Best Esthetician

Cymbria Butler- My name is Cymbria Butler. I am a licensed Advanced Esthetician in Ohio. My love for esthetics began when I noticed that I had “compromised skin”at a very young age. My quest to improve my skin lead to my fascination with skincare. This motivate me to further my education in my specialized field. Skincare knowledge paired with a holistically healthy lifestyle, inspired me to birth my own beauty business “innate Beauty”. As a business owner I preformed a variety of customized treatments to alleviate many skin concerns and provide clients with the knowledge needed to maintain their results. My goal is to give clients hope that they can achieve the results they desire. In my spare time I enjoy reading, long walks outside and most importantly being a new mom to my four month old daughter. As I end my maternity leave and enter back into the “work world” I plan to continue educating myself in skincare and searching for holistic ways to improve skins’ texture and appearance. Healthy skin builds confidence, and confidence spreads happiness.

Leana James (@nailtrap.lee)- My name is Leana, a Californian native local to Columbus and a dual licensee in esthetics/nails. Being in this industry has given me the opportunity to help others feel beautiful and confident while making new friends. It has been a very humbling experience and I love it!

Sylvia Brownlee (@Skinbybrownleeandco) Growing up, Sylvia Brownlee always had dreams of making a difference within the beauty industry. Upon graduating from cosmetology school, Brownlee started her decorated career in a high-profile salon where she worked for 10 years. A rising talent, she then made the transition into salon management before ultimately becoming the Director of Education at a renowned skin care institution. It was there that she discovered her passion for enhancing the lives of those who suffer from acne & hyperpigmentation. “I, myself, have dealt with both and knew how easily it can affect one’s self-esteem and confidence,” Brownlee recalls. “When your skin is clear and glowing, you feel amazing!” In 2015, she took a leap of faith, founding Skin by Brownlee & Co with the purpose of teaching others how to love and care for their skin.
