Monica billman

"I have been an esthetician since 2000 working in one of Anchorage's premier day spas. Through inspiration and encouragement of many, I decided to take on the challenge of opening my own business. Here at Encore Esthetics, my clients will find the same commitment to excellence that I have always prided myself on, the sincerity, and of course the whimsical stories of everyday life.

I know that health and beauty go hand in hand. It has always been my goal to stay up to date on the latest health and beauty advancements and technology."

Chelsea Chavez

Chelsea Chavez is an absolute find as a hair stylist! A Cosmetologist since 2012, Chelsea has a passion for hair! She is constantly attending classes and International Beauty Shows, to stay up to date on the latest styles. Her attention to detail and her ability to listen, and actually hear what her client wishes, is AMAZING!

Chelsea will look at your features, pick the best possible style to compliment YOU. She'll take the time to advise you how to recreate that look at home, which is refreshing. Chelsea has many certifications to include "The Deva Curl Cut". Anyone with curly hair, understands not all hairdressers know how to cut curly hair, but Chelsea Chavez does! She's incredibly neurotic when it comes to hair! You can really tell she is doing exactly what she loves!

Rosanna Schneider

My name is Rosanna. As far as I can remember, I have had a passion for helping people create an image of themselves that makes them feel extraordinary and rare. Even in my school days, I helped shape friend's eyebrows in the hallway one pluck at a time. As the years went by, my endless thirst for knowledge and education in the field of skincare increased. This love of skincare and beauty was personal for me; just like you, I have a journey. I became a mother in 2013 and suffered meaningful insecurities due to changes in my skin. I dove deep into skincare research and was finally able to restore my skin years later.

This journey inspired me to share my success with others and give them the same joy I now found. The best way to share my knowledge and skill with others was to attain my license and continue a lifelong educational journey and pursue excellence. There is such a hopeful feeling when you can bring a client's esthetic ideals to the surface and make them feel beautiful. I was born and raised in the great north, and I understand the unique and harsh climate our skin battles against every day.
I look forward to providing you the proper armor and techniques for wellness victory!
