Georgi – Owner, Esthetician
Georgi Whitney decided on a career as an esthetician 9 years ago when she realized she enjoys helping others care for their skin. She has a passion for waxing hair removal as it is an instant way to get rid of unwanted hair without the need for invasive techniques.
When she was 14 years old, Georgi started waxing using her mom’s stove to heat up the wax at home. It would take her a half day just to complete her legs. At that time she had no idea this would eventually turn out to be a career for her.
Georgi graduated from the Michigan College of Beauty in Troy MI. While initially working for other spas in the Detroit area she decided to open her own studio to specialize in waxing hair removal. The first few years she went at it all by herself and steadily grew the business. Next she stared hiring staff and now her team is growing at a fast pace. Her current location in Birmingham, MI is now being joined by her new location in Royal Oak, MI.
Georgi was born in Bucharest, Romania and excelled in athletics early on. She earned a spot on Romania’s national kayak team and participated in the 2003 World Championships. After her athletic career she moved to the United States. She lives in Royal Oak with her husband and their two children, Johnny, 5 and Bianca, 3. She enjoys going to the movies, spending time with family and traveling.
She is passionate about helping other people to follow their dreams. She says “Always be humble and graceful at all that you do.”
