Natasha Castillo: Aesthetician

Posted: Tuesday, March 07, 2000

Title and firm: Aesthetician, Cuts Online Salon and Day Spa.

Services:Microdermabrasion, or painless skin resurfacing, to reduce lines and wrinkles and acne scarring, and to restore sun-damaged skins and remove age spots; Kneipp Therapy, a German technique using hot and cold golden massage spoons to stimulate blood circulation for healthy skin; lash and brow tinting, to achieve a natural look without mascara; and face and body waxing for hair removal.

Latest project: Castillo recently completed a four-month training program at the Euro Institute of Skin Care in Bellevue, Wash., courtesy of scholarships from the Tlingit-Haida Central Council, Sealaska Corp. and Goldbelt. She got about 600 hours of instruction on the physiology of skin, anatomy and skin care. She is now occupationally licensed as an aesthetician in Washington and Alaska.

Biographical information and aspirations: A lifelong Juneau resident and a 1999 graduate of Juneau-Douglas High School, Castillo, 18, has dabbled in modeling and has a growing interest in the theatrical arts. When she mentioned that to Cuts Online owner Jo Anne Bell Graves a couple of years ago, she was offered a job as a receptionist, which she took. Three years ago, Castillo participated in modeling tryouts for a New York agency in Juneau, where she made the cut, and in Seattle, where she didn't. She is considering a second round this fall. Another tentative plan is college in Seattle, possibly with a drama major.

Family: Her parents, Joseph Castillo and Antoinette Guyrah, and her brother, Reynolds Skan Jr., all live in Juneau.
