16 Feb Voyage interview
Meet Agustina Panelo of MY SECRET Studio in Downtown Miami/Brickell
Today we’d like to introduce you to Agustina Panelo.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Agustina. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Born in Argentina, Buenos Aires. I’ve always had an attention to detail. Not only in my work but as well as my relationships with people. I observe and listen before I act, which I feel is an important trait to have in the service industry, qualities that help me meet the goals that I set for myself. I have an Associate in Small and Medium
Companies graduated in Argentina in 2000. Love brought me to the US. My first destination was Los Angeles, after two years I moved to Miami- and for the moment am fully the based in. I love to travel and explore other cities, countries and continents!
“I am of the world and there is no limits only those that one puts.” The curiosity of the aesthetic world started when I was 24, where I graduated as Esthetician, That certification has opened doors in some of the best 5-star spas located in Miami such us the Mandarin Oriental hotel, Canyon Ranch Hotel Spa, where I had the privilege of incorporating my knowledge, value and importance of the standards and protocols that one applies, so that each client whether they were a celebrity or not will receive a unique, special experience.
In 2017, I wanted to challenge myself personally and professionally, with the aim of having my own business, that’s how MY SECRET Studio Lashes & Brows was born. My first challenge was to choose where to study eyelash extensions and eyebrow designs, in that search, I found a very recognized academy in Russia, Moscow “Lash and Brow Academy” where I graduated from the volume eyelash extension course, eyebrow design with henna and microblading, where it covered all my expectations in terms of academics and also added the adventure of knowing the city, which was among the destinations that I have had on my buck-let list. Training myself with the best techniques and education possible are always my demand to provide my services with the best quality at my fingertips, that is why a year later I got the opportunity to incorporate a new microbleding technique dictated by the best world-renowned academy called Phibrows Academy where again I combine adventure and education, trip to Chile, where the course was dictated by the Founder of the асademia, the demand of the academy with its practices in the technique took me six months to certify myself with the recognition of the title “PHIBROWS ARTIST “at the end of that year I did an advanced course in Mexico City where it happened to combined my two passions education and travel.
I am always prepared for my next adventure of my two passions! I would love for you to follow me on my IG so that I can make you part of my next projects!
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
My challenge was to understand that my vocation was the reason for my professional path. It took me years to accept it and today, I can say that MY SECRET Studio definitely is my pure passion every day. I enjoy going to work full of happiness where each client is an experience of gratitude and that is priceless!
