Michele de Vincenz, Senior Esthetician
Michele de Vincenz is the Watergate Salon’s senior esthetician, specializing in skincare and facial techniques. She trained in her native country of Romania and studied biology prior to becoming an esthetician. Of note is that her Romanian training required her to create her own products for individuals, by combining herbs and natural products available in Romania. Michele moved to the United States in 1979 to work with Elizabeth Arden and Elodie Salon before joining the Watergate in 1981. Over the last 25 years, Michele de Vincenz has widened the range of her skills and techniques through additional training experiences with Essensa, as well as her completing specialty courses in clinical aesthetics, aromatherapy, artistic make-up, massage therapy, electrolysis and micro-dermabrasion (Power Peel) in the US, France and Germany. Throughout her tenure at the Watergate Salon, she has applied the newest skin care products and techniques available to the Watergate’s clientele. Fifteen years ago, when the Watergate Salon spearheaded the introduction of aromatherapy and botanical-based cosmetic lines such as Essensa, Michele was personally selected for one-on-one training with M.P. Magomet, the renowned French creator of this outstanding skincare line.
