Jimena Garcia, is the GLOWIEST brow guru in the game. Shaping and sculpting brows is her specialty, all while being one of the brightest lights that we know.
Jimena Garcia is our brow wizard. A believer in the big-and-beautiful-brows vibe, she is an artist with a true vision that we couldn’t be more obsessed with. She is a woman who radiates glow from every pore of her being. A master at her craft, she takes time, precision, art, symmetry, and texture into consideration when crafting brows. Starting her career in NYC, she set her roots on the east coast, yet most recently made the move to LA working out of WMN Space, Violet Grey, and Cabin.
Her speciality lies in her subtle and artistic vision of brows. She dyes, tweezes, and shapes to perfection. Jimena really looks to enhance each of her client’s natural beauty, which is something we truly appreciate.
Beyond her incredible skills in the brow department, Jimena is one of the glowiest human beings we know, with the most incredible heart. She is kind, funny, and just makes you feel so loved and comforted in her styling chair. Her studios are filled with rose petals, crystals, and the most beautiful knick-knacks imaginable. Just being around her presence is something that we crave! And trust us, we’re not alone. Almost everyone who meets this woman has the same feeling :)
We met with Jimena at her space within WMN Space, one of our favorite resources for female-based wellness. What we admire most about this women is her intrinsic ability to see the unique beauty in every person. She truly has a gift. Through the art of brows, she offers an incredible exchange of energy with her clients. This exchange is healing, powerful, and absolutely filled with GLOW.

DESCRIBE YOUR PERFECT DAY.
Getting up early, lighting incense, putting on some classical music, laying out my mat, and doing 15 minutes of yoga.
Thinking of an art project. Putting all my needs out to create. Waking Robert up. Going for a neighborhood walk together with some tea.
Then coming home to my art project while Robert cooks. After we eat, we read a bit and then go for a swim in the Ocean.
Come back to get ready. Wearing some of my favorite jewelry go meet our friends somewhere where there is a big long french country style table. We all cook, eat, drink and dance together.

John F. Kennedy (at his inaugural address)
or all of Maya Angelou’s words
