Mae Monroe (born May Nguyen, September 6, 1992) is a Vietnamese-American beauty entrepreneur, healing esthetician, bridal make-up artist, business consultant, and empowerment coach. Her impeccable record of success in business, brow artistry and seamless make-up application led her to be awarded four distinct recognitions by Kansas City’s well-known newspaper, The Pitch: Best Aesthetician, Best Brow Artist, Best Make-Up Artist and Best Bridal Make-up Artist in all of Kansas City (2018).
Titled the "First & Only" Asian-American professional in her city to start a beauty business and become a six-figure income earner by the age of 26 (within four years of her start), Mae undoubtedly has lead a life of drive and determination. Mae built her business from the ground up at the young age of 22, where her ambition led her to work with high-end clientele and to collaborate with celebrity designers and stylists across states.
She was recognized as the first Vietnamese Sales Director in the Midwest for a multibillion-dollar company, where she trained women on sales and leadership and was also the youngest to achieve such success. You can find Mae working from her intimate studio in Kansas City. She obtains all of her clients through word of mouth and caters to her valued clientele by appointment only.
What distinguishes Mae from other beauty professionals is that she approaches skin in a more holistic and spiritual way. She is a level 3 Reiki healer; Reiki level 3 is also referred to as the ‘master level’ and is the highest level in this specialization one can achieve. Her belief and approach to beauty is that it should start from within and, thus, she focuses on healing and clearing the skin first. Through doing this, Mae facilitates her notion that a woman can fully thrive and feel empowered when she loves the skin that she is in.
If you are looking for a skincare coach, you have reached your final destination. Get ready and be excited! You can look forward to Mae bringing out your inner goddess by highlighting all of your best features. Mae’s mission as your esthetician and beauty professional is to empower you and help bring out all of that radiant beauty within you.
On the make-up artistry side, Mae favors bridal and sensual glam make up. Refined, soft and glowy best describe her application and her expertise and popularity in this area have brides booking her services at least a year in advance. Brides are Mae’s number one priority: she knows how special and magical this day will be and is there to add to the magic! Her packages are designed to fully take care of all of her clients’ bridal needs sans the worry.
When Mae is not in her studio or pampering her brides, she is consulting with aspiring business professionals and estheticians as well as continuously attending workshops and refining her craft. She believes that success has no cap, that it is always in one’s best interest to keep learning, and she is blessed to have been trained by a dynamic trio who has served as the Kardashian’s makeup artists: Mario Dedivanovic, Hranush Alexis "Hrush" Achemyan, and Ash K Holm.
Committed, upbeat, knowledgeable, reliable, honest and full of energy, Mae is not only a remarkable businesswoman; she is a phenomenal human being. She finds joy in seeing women strive for success on all levels and is exhilarated to serve you as your future aesthetician and beauty spiritual coach and to help you thrive from the inside out!
