Wear your truth and beYOUtiful!

OUAStylist – which is pronounced “wow-stylist” in the way a French person would pronounce those letters together or “I owe you a stylist” because those letters mean Once Upon A Stylist. Whichever way you prefer! They both suit me and my philosophy about life.
Indeed, the fun program I put together is called Inner-Beauty Styling. It is designed to accompany my clients on their road to self-realization!
Once you start working with me your life becomes the fairy tale you want it to be!

What do cosmetics have to do with Inner-Beauty?

Wellbeing in my opinion can only be complete if it’s whole-istic!
So in Inner-Beauty Styling we work from inside-out and also from outside-in!

Cosmetics became an integral part of my brand in 2015 when I discovered in a cosmetology class what was behind the complicated names on cosmetic long lists of ingredients with numbers and codes. The terrifying truth was that I had been polluting and poisoning my skin, hair and mouth with products from big brands I thought were high quality! (Only to understand that they were indeed high priced but the only healthy thing about some of them was the “natural” water they contained!)
That was it! I started doing more research and took training with a chemist in Paris to learn how to make my own. During class, I was already adapting the recipes to my own needs. In the make up class for instance, I changed the measurements in pigments to make the foundation powders match my particular skin tone.
Very quickly I started creating all the products I needed and even more! The limitless range of possibilities nature has to offer mesmerized me! I began experimenting. I even made a cream for breasts that make them swell a little because I used a component that is used in Africa also by athletes to define their muscles better!!! It’s incredible!

Something else you probably need to know about my personality: I can’t stand wasting time! So when I create something it has do what I want and more! So my products are always “as much as possible in one”!
If you take one of my latest creations: the Mermaid and Aquaman body scrub with freeze effect. While in the creation process, I was in the shower and washing my body when the following idea came to me: if I am to scrub my body, I will also scrub my legs… What if the scrub could be working on the unsightly « orange-peel » skin since the product will have to stay on skin at least the time I scrub?! Challenge accepted! It does, but not only! I had to try adding what I now call the “freeze” effect so that when you use it while taking a bath, it feels extraordinary – especially in the South where the weather is overwhelmingly warm! You’ll thank me! (More info about this particular cosmetic in the product description).

And then the circle of clients enlarged. Word of mouth attracted friends of friends, and then friends of friends of friends, etc!

And now, I’m back on the other side of the Atlantic pond! I left Paris when I got the green card in January 2018! Now my clientele is French and American! And now with Etsy, who knows! Maybe international soon!

Thank you for reading and for welcoming me!
I hope you’re ready to live in the wow! OUAStylist is crafted to take you where you wanna be so you can beYOUtiful from outside-in and inside-out!
Inner-Beauty Stylin’ babae! ;)
Au revoir!
Nancy à votre service!

Frequently asked questions
Where are OUAStylist containers from?

Made in Europe: Aroma-Zone (a French company) is my provider and they make every effort to favor local, quality supply at the best price, thus minimizing the impact of transport on the environment.

What does INCI ingredients mean?

The International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients, abbreviated INCI; based on scientific names and other Latin and English words.

Why aren't all ingredients organic?

Organic means organically farmed. If an ingredient like an algae is found in the ocean it's not organic but it is natural. Sometimes non-organic is a better choice. I choose accordingly :)

What is Fair Trade?

My French provider imports the ingredients I use from a fair trade network, which facilitates the development of organized structures profitable for the local populations.

What are recycled PET or PETR?

100% Recycled PET or PETR bottles are obtained by recycling bottles and other PET packaging. These are thoroughly cleaned and ground, then used to make recycled PET pellets which are then used to make new PET containers.

Using these recycled containers:
- reduces CO2 emissions by 52%
- reduces greenhouse gas emissions
- saves energy: the manufacture of recycled PET products saves up to 60% of energy compared to the manufacture of new PET containers.
- preserves non-renewable resources: primary PET is produced from scarce non-renewable natural resources. Guaranteeing a second life for these PET containers is an eco-responsible act.

I have chosen to make a full commitment to reduce our carbon footprint.
