We had the good fortune of connecting with Jessica Mazzer and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jessica, how do you think about risk?
One of the biggest risks I’ve encountered so far is truly the founding of Moonbeam. When COVID struck the DFW area, I was working my first job out of beauty school (1 year at a lash franchise). I felt very lost. I had one refined skillset, no clients, and a strong vision of all the things I would do differently if I had a say. At the time I remember thinking “what is actually the worse case scenario, not the worse case I’ve built up in my head?”. A calculated risk is absolutely worthwhile, the answer to a question un-asked will always be no. Risks can open the right doors, if you let them.

What should our readers know about your business?
I am so excited for people to learn about Moonbeam! As a whole, my practice has many faces (holistic facial + body treatments, curated brow offerings, Swedish massage, environmentally-friendly waxing, a blossoming herbal apothecary, and even 1-on-1 guidance through tarot + guided meditations). It is important for me to create comprehensive care plans for each client. Someone is not just their skin, they are the life that they live. How can we help you achieve balance through only your home routine if your cortisol is through the roof? My end-goal is a multi-faceted, holistic-focused wellness center complete with a sauna space, herbal bar, and weekend courses to bring the community closer together.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Fable and Fire in Rockwell for CERTAIN. A bistro AND I can shop for books? No question. Always stopping at The Groovy Coop in downtown McKinney, just across the street from the Spice and Tea Merchant and near Habitat (plant + coffee pit stop!). The Arboretum is a beautiful walk as well.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My partner, absolutely. He has been incredibly supportive in every way imaginable, ever since we were kids, and is always constructive when I go to him for advice. My mentor/building owner, Karla Bridgwaters. I found myself in a sudden situation when I moved Moonbeam into The Beauty Social, she has certainly been a strong foundation for me during some hard times and I have been honored to learn from her. My best friend/fellow esthetician, Raylee Grimes. One of the greatest things to come out of my time at the Aveda Dallas Institute was our relationship, she is a great inspiration and often a guiding fire. Lastly, Ke Kino Institute of Massage in Plano and ALL who teach/mentor within. A wonderful place of metamorphosis and growth to many who are lucky enough to have a journey there.
