Esthetician Opens First Black-Owned Beauty School in Kentucky

Heather Weatherspoon was the first esthetician to sign up and list her business on the SpaSho directory, so she’s definitely a favorite around here, and another HUGE first—she is the first and only Black woman to own a beauty school in the state of Kentucky: The Exquisite Beauty Institute.

This history-making move received national attention.  The Kelly Clarkson Show featured Heather to discuss her achievement. 

While on the show, Heather tells Kelly about her journey as a pharmacy student to the owner of a beauty school.  One company was so impressed by her story, that they awarded her with a check.

Watch Heather’s appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show from this Yahoo Entertainment! article.  


A little more about Heather from her SpaSho interview:

Heather Weatherspoon is the 9-year owner, and operator, of Exquisite Lengths Beauty & Brow Bar in Louisville, Kentucky.  She is known as the Lady Brazilianaire because of her impeccable Brazilian waxing skills, where on average, she waxes 80-90 men and women every week.
