Amber Wendel Salon ManagerRead BioAmber Wendel Salon Manager
Born and raised near the banks of Plum Creek (yes, like Laura Ingalls Wilder), Amber enjoyed small-town life from elementary school through college where she got her bachelor’s in psychology. With that degree, she enjoyed three fun, fast-paced years as a preschool teacher where she loved forming meaningful relationships, not only with the children, but the parents who trusted her to enrich their children’s lives. Amber has always had a passion for learning and instilling a love of learning in others. Her strengths in the areas of parent rapport and peer mentoring fit well into making new LunchboxWax guests feel comfortable and training new waxologists to do the same.

I have been in the beauty industry for over 20 years and working as an esthetician for 16. After receiving my bachelors degree in Psychology (5 year student and burned out), I had an epiphany one day. I still loved the industry and found that psychology was about taking care of yourself on the inside, while esthetics was about taking care of yourself on the outside. I attended Aveda Institute in Minneapolis. It was a beautiful marriage of the traits. I’ve got the gift of gab. I absolutely love what I do and it shows with the care and trust I establish with my clients. In my free time I like to travel, explore the new city I call home now, getting outdoors, and the ocean! However my greatest accomplishment is the 3 amazing daughters I have!

Born and raised in a small town in Maine I always had a desire to move to a warmer climate, so as soon as I graduated high school I moved to Savannah, Georgia where I worked in a local boutique and attended esthetics school. Once I earned my license I was hired at a day spa where I performed facials, waxing, eyelash extensions and spray tans. In October 2016, I decided to make the move to Los Angeles to further my career within the esthetics industry in a larger city. I love helping people feel great about themselves inside and out-not to mention the amazing instant results of waxing! I spend most of my free time exploring California with my mini Aussie Abby, or enjoying a glass of wine!
