KRISTINA LOUISE WELZIEN

 

Beauty and Wellness Expert 
Shares Wabi Sabi Beauty Tips


Kristina Welzien is the Visionary and Founder of 

Wabi Sabi Beauty - San Francisco, CA


After 17 years of practicing as a beauty and wellness professional I see there’s an opening and opportunity to have what I call ‘a slow service’. As a human race, we've gotten pretty speedy and I don't imagine it slowing down anytime soon. So to have an environment where services are being provided with a holistic approach, allows for people to get connected to their body and what they're needing on all levels--the whole person meaning mind, body, and spirit.


WHAT WABI SABI BEAUTY MEANS TO ME

Wabi Sabi Beauty is an expression, a style, a taste of sour and sweet, a flash of bright light and low light. WSB is an experience. WSB to me, is when we can see, feel and celebrate all that makes us a whole being: body, spirit and mind. WSB can be experienced when our inner and outer beauty unites and dances together.


Kristina will be presenting several presentations in the Wellness Lounge thoughout the day. Be sure to spend some time in the Wellness Lounge to 'slow down' and 'breathe'......
