Meet The Owner


Kimmie AlessI

If there is one thing you should know about Kimmie, it is her love for all aspects of the beauty industry! Prior to becoming an Esthetician, she began her career in 2010 as a Licensed Cosmetologist where she had a successful five- year career as a Haircolor Specialist. Having struggled with severe food sensitivities and skin issues including psoriasis, she understood the link between proper nutrition and healthy skin. This passion changed her course and led her to master the art of sugaring and skincare at San Diego’s top spa, La Di Da Sugaring. Inspired and motivated by years of knowledge, Kimmie returned to her Northern California roots to open The Sugar Refinery. She loves all challenges of the skin including acne, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, and aging skin conditions. Kimmie’s services focus on rejuvenating facials, corrective peels, and sugaring hair removal. She has a joyful spirit and wants her clients to know that she will care for them like family!
