Using Her Skills to Bring Smiles to Others

Lucia Etchamendy, owner of Lucia’s Hair and Nail Salon in Hesperia, Calif., donates her services doing face painting, a skill she developed when she started painting her children’s faces almost 18 years ago.

 

It’s kind of like doing nail art, only the canvas is bigger and the “clients” are usually younger. Lucia Etchamendy, owner of Lucia’s Hair and Nail Salon in Hesperia, Calif., donates her services doing face painting, a skill she developed when she started painting her children’s faces almost 18 years ago. “The payment I receive from a young child or an elderly person getting her first painted tattoo is priceless,” she says. Etchamendy plies her skills at places like elementary schools, fundraisers, and Halloween parties. Her most popular designs are stars, skulls, flowers, spiders for the boys, and lots of glitter for the girls. “Basically, face and body painting requires the same skills as nail art. And if it doesn’t come out right, it simply washes off,” she says.
