Meet Nicole Rhangolan of Essential Skincare in Forest Park

Today we’d like to introduce you to Nicole Rhangolan.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Nicole. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Well, I modeled professionally back in the late eighties early nineties…. I guess I’ve always considered myself an entrepreneur. I realized that modeling was not my long term career goal and I’ve always loved skincare and makeup. So in 99 I decided to attend esthetics school. Upon graduation I began working at various salon/ spas and at a plastic surgeon practice. In 2003 I decided to go on my own and opened Essential Skincare. One of the best decisions I’ve ever made!

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
As a small business owner there are always struggles and growing pains, there is always the unknown. From services to products to clientele.

However, these struggles have helped to make me a better business person and to appreciate and value each and every one of my clients.

Essential Skincare – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
I provide facial treatments, waxing services for a diverse clientele. It’s not about fluff at Essential Skincare. It’s about real results. It’s a very quiet atmosphere. I’m by appointment only and my clients love the one on attention.

I’m proud of the faces of my clients when they see their skin’s potential. Nothing makes me prouder of my business than hearing a new client say that they’ve been referred by another client.

What sets me apart is my attention to detail. I enjoy every dynamic of my job and making sure that my clients walk out thinking that they will not find a better service in the entire state.

What is “success” or “successful” for you?
I define success by the positive responses of my clients to the skincare regimen I design for them and their trust in recommending me to their friends, family and co-workers.

Making people feel beautiful is the reason I’m in this business.

    Even as a middle-aged man I still had issues with razor bumps, in-grown hairs etc. I have followed Nicole’s skincare advice and treatments over the years and am now able to put by best outer self forward. Even my teenage children have started to see Nicole. Congrats Nicole! Thanks for taking a seat and listening to your clients. The accolades are well deserved.

    Before meeting Nicole, I would get a facial once a year. Since then, Nicole has provided me with a good education in skin care and products. It is so nice to be in the hands of a professional who truly cares. Can’t wait until I see Nicole again!

    As a man I am always skeptical when it comes to facials. However, after receiving a gift certificate for a facial with Nicole I am now a believer! Great gift for any man you may know!!
