MICKY RICHARDS
 Owner | Operator | Licensed Esthetician

I am a self proclaimed Georgia peach, however, I am originally from a small suburb of Massachusetts.  My mom moved my 4 sister and I to the Atlanta area in 1995 and it is now home to my ENTIRE extended family.

 

At a very young age, I realized that hard work and consistency allowed me freedom and the ability to make my own money.  So a few years after receiving my BBA in Marketing and working a few years in the insurance industry, I decided to make a complete career change by enrolling in the esthetics program of the International School of Skin and Nails of Atlanta (2009-2010). Shortly after obtaining my esthetic license, and working as a staff esthetician for a few years,  I established Sugar Lips Studio.  Throughout the years, I've received additional certifications in sugaring, eyebrow shaping, and spray tanning.
