Kelly, Owner of La Di Da Sugaring

Kelly Fritz, Esthetician, Educator

and La Di Da Owner

 

Years ago, in her early twenties, Kelly had a terrible experience getting a bikini wax and vowed that she could do better. Seventeen years  later and thousands of bikini waxes later, she now has her own sugaring and skin care business, La Di Da. Kelly started out her career in esthetics in April 2000 in Pacific Beach. Her career has taken her from the beach to Hillcrest to downtown San Diego and eventually to Coronado where she owned her own spa from 2006-2010, with her business partner and best friend, Mailette. Kelly has been performing sugaring hair removal her entire career and doesn’t use any wax for any service whatsoever.

Her passion is providing a quick, comfortable hair removal experience. Usually completing an entire, thorough Brazilian in under 10 minutes. She also loves to help people with their skin.  She excels in helping those with acne conditions and anyone who wants to correct sun damage and signs of aged skin, such as hyper-pigmentation and fine lines. She has personally reversed her own sun damage and knows how to get results. Chemical peels are one of her specialties.

She would love to see you soon for your next Brazilian sugaring or facial!

BRENDA SMITH 

Brenda is a San Diego native who’s had a love for the art of esthetics from a very young age. After putting her love and passion to work, she received her esthetics license in 2011 with her completion of the San Diego City College esthetician program. Besides hair removal, Brenda’s other main passion is shaping brows. She loves creating full, arched brows which add life to the beautiful faces of her wonderful clients. During her five year stay at the Benefit Brow Bar, she waxed and shaped brows where she perfected her art and skill whilst upping the brow game for many. If you feel you haven’t found someone to give your brows that perfect shape, I would definitely recommend Brenda. Fortunately she’s also mastered the art of sugaring. Thus allowing her to provide clients an organic and natural hair removal option. She is very friendly and has a warm, happy smile that invites comfort and trust. She enjoys all people and helping them with any hair removal needs from your brows to your toes!
