Welcome, darling. My name is Amara Nicole. I have been a licensed Esthetician for 6+ years and I’m here to end your search for the ultimate beauty therapy! I am self-taught with makeup ranging from natural, wedding, glam to special effects (SFX). I have waxed professionally for years and my top, well known, qualities are for being quick, efficient, comforting, and funny! (I am your number one stop for brows, btw). My brand 'Browtiful' by Journey to Her will be announced August 4, 2023 and available for purchase August 26, 2023 both in store and online! Browtiful is an expansion of my brand to offer high quality brow products as well as offering Masterclasses for fellow estheticians! I thoroughly enjoy making others look and feel their best self for any and all occasions, but my favorite reason is “just cause”. I am looking forward to meeting you and delivering the ultimate beauty therapy.
For the community, I host large networking events for local entrepreneurs and enthusiasts to fill their cup and connect them to ignite or reignite their fire to continue going hard for themselves and their businesses!

Phew. This is a great question. I get so emotional when it’s time to open up about it, but that’s what it’s all about, right? Journey to Her LLC was founded in 2022, but the seed was planted years ago. I’ve had many supporters egging me to go out own my own and out of fear I’d always shy away from the idea. It’s exhilarating to be sitting here writing out my thoughts as I have a million realizations on how I got here, but it has gotten me to where I am today. I had my first child, my son Jayden, at 18 years old, straight out of high school. While I was very much in love and able to move away from home to begin my “journey”, I never realized how much I got wrapped up in being the “mom”, “wife”, “student”, “employee”. I never prioritized the time to figure out who Amara is or where she wanted to be in life. I always knew I had the talents, just never had the guts to take it seriously. Fast forward to 2019, my darkest year of losing my Dad. Such an amazing soul that I gained a lot of my quirks, gentleness, jokes, and love from. In that moment, I would say it weakened me. But looking back, I know I made him and continue to make him extremely proud just by loving myself and pushing through. 2019 was also the year I got pregnant with my beautiful baby girl, Samina, whom is named after my dad, Sam. If you ask anyone, I carry the personality of someone who goes hard for any and everyone around me and not until recently did I gain that energy, that self love and worth to go hard for myself. Que the waterworks. Journey to Her hits home for me and I’m sure for many other young moms that had to push through their darkest moments, find themselves, and fall in love with who they are while also giving credit to where they’ve been. My story isn’t perfect but it has gotten me to where I am today, and that journey is one I’ll forever remember and be grateful for. I am thankful everyday for my children whom keep me on my toes but fill my cup with unmatched love. My husband who has always supported any new talents I pursued and helped me turn my dreams to reality, my mom who has ALWAYS been there in my corner and making sure I’m always taken care of even as an adult. My mother in law who has always done for our family and treats me as her own. My best friends who talk me through my breakdowns and help build me back up piece by piece and stay cheering me on, and all of my family and numerous supporters. I can only hope that Journey to Her will not only grow to inspire, but to teach and embed self love in any and every woman who may have lost themselves or are struggling to find themselves. The Journey is apart of the greatness and without it, we could never reach
