Career Code: Kristie Streicher Will Give You Business Advice (and Perfect Brows)

In honor of Hillary Kerr and Katherine Power’s new book, The Career Code: Must-Know Rules for a Strategic, Stylish, and Self-Made Career ($17), we’re running an interview series featuring 17 questions (in honor of the book’s 17 chapters) about the work lives of the most inspirational female leaders in the beauty industry.

It's no surprise that I'm an absolute brow maniac. I hold my two eye-framing, bushy strips of hair closer to my heart than most things (#truth). So, it couldn't have been more exciting, inspiring, fun—you name it—to interview Kristie Streicher about her process

The self-made girl boss (she is the co-owner of Striiike, a beauty and creative space in Beverly Hills she shares with her sisters, Jenn and Ashley), trademarked the "Feathered Brow," which is a mixture of tapered feathering and Streicher’s delicate sculpting technique. The results? That ever-elusive lush brow that is full, natural, and downright exquisite. Streicher has a ton of tricks up her sleeve, including her signature, hand-mixed blend of all-natural essential oils (lavender, tangerine, orange, and ylang ylang). It's a creation she has been keeping on hand for 15 years for hundreds of satisfied clients. You see, the secret is in the concoction—if you apply it pre-tweeze, the treatment is virtually painless.

See what I mean? Streicher knows her salt. And, if you go in and see her, she'll get to know your brows better than you do. Keep scrolling for some truly great insight from Kristie Streicher herself.
