bioWho is Kara?

Kara Burt, is a licensed master esthetician and permanent cosmetic artist. Kara’s Beauty Barn has been a dream of hers since starting working as an esthetician over 10 years ago, let alone her childhood dreams of hair, nails, and make-up that were a constant in Kara’s life. Along with being the owner of Kara’s Beauty Barn, she works as a medical esthetician & laser technician at Little Mountain Laser, LLC. Her sister, Lyn, is the physician at that facility.

Kara holds a Master’s degree and is an experienced educator. She entered medical esthetics to procedurally help people get healthy, clear skin and learn how to keep it that way. She fell in love with waxing along the way. Her eye for detail and desire to see result drew her to the world of more permanent procedures for her happy clients. She performs multiples types of treatments at both locations of business, microdermabrasion, and assists Dr. Emery in larger procedures. Kara has a busy life “country living.” She has 4 daughters that all keep her on her toes!


darlene-webWho is Darlene?

Darlene began her career in Esthetics in 2009, after working in the health care industry for many years. “ I always loved all things beauty related (make up, skin care, fashion) and often dreamed of a chance to work in the beauty or skin care industry”. I wished to combine my love of make up with skin care, because the best make up is great skin!

The opportunity presented itself in 2009 when I decided to start Esthetic school.

I graduated from Blanche MacDonald School of Esthetics in Vancouver, B.C. (while living in Bellingham, I commuted back and forth). Darlene also studied advanced skin care and laser treatment technology at the National Laser Institute in Scottsdale, AZ. Darlene’s work experience includes a variety of treatments for skin, from the organic to medical spa treatments. Darlene has also worked for a popular cosmetic company, and loves learning about the latest and greatest in skincare technology. “The skin care field is exciting to me because it is constantly changing and evolving, with new ingredients being discovered daily.”

I really love helping my clients to achieve healthy, vibrant, glowing skin, and I am excited to work with Kara and her team of fantastic ladies that share the same vision!

Gratitiude Moment

A HUGE thank you goes to Clinton Burt for designing and creating the metamorphosis of our chicken coop into Kara’s Beauty Barn. “Everyday a little blood went into the Beauty Barn.” I can’t thank you enough for helping my dream become our reality. I love you.

A smile of pleasure for every time one of my girls said, “mama I am so excited for you.”, or “mama, “I am soooo proud of you.” I hope that one day you will be fortunate enough to do what you love and know that is helping others along the way. I believe in you.

Heather of HD Creative – your skills blow my mind. Not only are you an amazingly talented artist/graphic designer, you are the most caring, loyal, friend that a girl could ever ask for.

Friends and family, thank you for helping me realize that I can do this!
Cheers! I’ll see you soon!
