Jordan Owens
Esthetician/Facial Specialist/Waxologist

Tier 1

Hi there! My name is Jordan, feel free to call me “Jordy”. I’ve been passionate about makeup for almost a decade and that led me to realize the importance of making time for self care. In my teens I struggled with intense acne and found a calling to skincare, its benefits to help improve my skin and outlook. I enrolled at the Aveda Institute Orlando and became a Licensed Esthetician in July 2019. There I fell in love with transforming skin and creating lasting connections with my guests to give them the best treatment plan and meet their skincare goals. Shortly after becoming a licensed Esthetician, I relocated to Tallahassee to begin my career in Esthetics and take on an academic endeavour at TCC in Product Development with a minor in Web design. I am also an animal lover with a Tabby cat and two Australian White tree frogs. So all in all I love skin, love problem solving, creating lasting relationships with my guests, education and all things animal. I look forward to sharing my passions and seeing you at the hive.

Lucero Eppes

Esthetician/Facial Specialist/Waxologist

Tier 2

Hi bumblebee’ers, My name is Lucero but I go by Lucy! As a young adult, I always enjoyed treating myself to a facial and getting waxed on a regular basis. Then one day it clicked…as much as I enjoyed being on the receiving end, I wanted to help people with their skin and have them feel confident in it as well. Thus my love for skincare grew into something more. I attended and graduated from Aveda Institute of Tallahassee as a Licensed Esthetician in February 2019. As I continue to learn and grow at Bumblebee Waxing & More, I will strive to provide you with quality service and improve the health of your skin.

Porshea

Esthetician/Facial Specialist/Waxologist

Tier 1

Hi I’m Porshea, originally from Cedar Rapids, Iowa and I love all things skin! I was a certified nursing assistant for over 5 years before going to school for Esthetics and becoming a licensed skin care professional. I loved making the residents feel good about themselves and caring for their health needs. I saw a major change in how they interacted after a simple hair, skin or nail fix. In 2019 I decided to further my journey at Aveda Institute here in Tallahassee FL. I am excited to bee part of the BumbleBeeTeam and bring my love, dedication and passion to BumbleBee guests!

Fun facts about me: I have 2 kids, my son Jujuan, 9 & my daughter Aaliyah, 13. I have a passion for music, I used to play the violin. I grew up around Torreya State Park and thanks to that I’m a nature-lover obsessed with horses and waterfalls

What’s Important to Us

For us, creating a collaborative environment is vital to the makeup of Bumblebee Waxing and More. We feel our work together is a two way street.  We base our work both consciously and intuitively on everything we see and hear. We enjoy educating our guests, and we are life-long learners ourselves. We form long-term relationships with our guests, often creating working relationships that last for years.

How We Work Best

We are kind, creative collaborative people. We thrive when we are working together. We’re always bouncing ideas off each other, sharing cool little tricks of the trade. We like to let things progress organically with a little twist of organization. We are here to build each other up, and we love creating simple, stress free relationships creating a level of trust with each other. We are here to evoke beauty inherent in all aspects of each person who walks through our door.

Our Interaction Styles

Integrity is of the utmost importance to us. We are sincere and honest in the work we do, and we want that to be reflected in all your interactions with us. Clarity is crucial to ensure you receive what you’re looking for. If you are unsure of something, please keep asking. Questions are good. We love doing collaborative work and multiple opinions are always taken into consideration. Making an organic connection is always what we are seeking.  Forced relationships are never fun nor beneficial. We are here to help each other.

We want everyone to feel welcomed and like an old friend by the time you walk out of our doors. We want to create more than just you coming to your appointment.  We want you to love it, feel refreshed after, and maybe even a little healed.  We want you feeling at your best inside and out!
