Kathleen I. Scarpitti, LE
Kathleen began her career here at Lasting Looks in April 2012. While studying at the Academy of Massage and Bodywork in Bear, DE, she took a special interest in product ingredients and the science and technology behind them. Kathleen also completed an 8-week internship with Irene Stuckey, the National Director of Education for A Natural Difference Skin Care. This experience fortified her knowledge of product ingredients and the direct effect they have on our skin. In addition to providing an excellent range of services, Kathleen believes her role is to educate her clients on the most current information available and provide what they want – results!
Mindy Snyder, LC
Mindy began her career at Lasting Looks in January 2015, but has been in the cosmetology industry for over 10 years. Her passion has always been with professional make-up artistry which she has perfected with various companies over the years, including MAC Professionals. The tedious skill of Eyelash Extensions came naturally. Mindy is currently working a limited schedule while focusing her time on her growing family.
