Ivonne Sanchez is the owner and founder of Ivonne Sanchez Beauty, a Beauty Salon and Permanent Makeup Clinic on Sparks Street, Ottawa's pedestrian mall.
Ivonne has several years’ experience in modeling, giving brand advice to major makeup brands, and even spent 10 years in corporate law! In 2017 Ivonne left the corporate world and returned to her first love – makeup and beauty. Drawing from her artistic abilities she now offers some of the best permanent brows, lips and liner in the region.
Ivonne has received diplomas from world-renowned Phi-Academy based in Europe, Brazil's Fernanda Jaffre in Scar Camouflage Tattoo, and Microneedling by Minx Mogul.
Ivonne continues to expand her knowledge in the area of tattoo removal, and other forms of permanent cosmetics. She is the proud mom of a kindergarten boss girl and when she’s not practicing on latex she can be found picking out the best pair of killer heels.
Born and raised in Brazil Marcela grew up among women who were confident, happy and proud of their bodies! Brazilian women always take the time to dedicate to their own self- care as an act of self-love! The women in her life would say: “If you are happy in your own skin then all aspects of your life will improve”!
The beauty industry became part of Marcela’s life when her own Mother decided to leave her stay-at-home life and open her very own beauty business, offering the latest trends and services in the beauty industry! Her mother was always involved with beauty as she won beauty pageants and competitions throughout her late teens and early twenties. She had a great passion for makeup, skin care, fashion and new trends! Marcela has fond memories of her mom getting ready in her closet, and stepping out of the house presenting herself to the world!
When we work with passion there is no doubt that success is possible - and this is how her own mother’s business succeeded! Because of her Father’s influence she studied in business and economics however, as with many beauty professionals, her heart was calling her to do something else. After moving to Canada in 2008 Marcela brought with her Brazilian culture to Ottawa! She did not change who she was and many women began reaching out to her, inspired by her influence and her passion, to benefit from her beauty advice!
In 2010 Marcela returned to beauty officially offering beauty services part-time. Her involvement with beauty has now grown to a full time commitment full of joy! She brings with her the knowledge and experience passed down to her from her own mother. She has passionately reinvented herself and now is excited to contribute in this space.
Marcela is very much “at home” working in the beauty industry, naturally fitting in with her interests and skills - this is exactly where she belongs. She is so thankful for the opportunity to help women explore their ideas of beauty. This isn’t just a job - this is a privilege and an honour to work with amazing and inspiring professionals in Ottawa’s downtown core.
Marcela is certified in Lash Extensions, Lash Lifts, Microblading, Microneedling, Permanent Makeup and facials. She is now an educator offering instruction in academy programs.
Enhancing natural beauty is foremost in the mind of makeup artist Holly Ward when she works.
A makeup artist with more than 15 years’ experience in the areas of fashion photo shoots, creative studio photo shoots, makeup education and product consultations, Holly has also graced the cover and has multiple page spreads in national, and international top fashion magazines as a model and makeup artist, she has learnt from her clients one universal rule: women want to look fresh, flawless and beautiful. It’s this principle that drives a signature style that is feminine and natural, yet in keeping with modern style inspiration drawn from her many creative sources, from the world’s best fashion magazines to time at the barn riding horses with her young daughter.
Holly’s vast experience, combined with training by some of the industry’s most highly regarded professionals, sees her clients transformed into their best selves.
Daria (known as "Dasha" by her friends and family) has always had a passion for elaborate nail art, and a good eye for some of the most creative hair colouring concepts. Daria's primary career is a Business Analyst with Service Canada and focuses her time on advancing fairness and equality in the workplace.
With her interests in beauty, and what she has learned as a skincare provider, working with the skin was a natural transition. She received her microneedling and BB Glow training at Ivonne Sanchez Beauty Academy.
Daria is also a certified Yoga Instructor, studies Korean and enjoys leading Instagram yoga challenges.
Lyneth has been passionate about the arts all her life, and has been working as a professional visual artist for the past 10 years. After having her own brows microbladed, she saw an opportunity to combine her previous experience as a tattoo artist with her skill as a portrait artist. With an eye for detail and a talent for precision, she quickly picked up microblading through Ivonne's course, and has been working professionally as a brow artist since 2018.
