Joanna Young’s Bio

By Taran Harris

Luxurious, indulgent, and, glamorous. Joanna Young Skin is the epitome of high-quality skincare. Joanna goes above and beyond to not only meet the needs of her customers but to accommodate her services to each of her clients’ experiences. Joanna Young started her company as Live Beautifully OC but later rebranded herself as Joanna Young Skin in 2018 and is located in Newport Beach.

Joanna attended college in her home town, Newfoundland, before moving to Vancouver, British Columbia in pursuit of a job opportunity. There she worked in business marketing, creating financial plans, and hospitality. Her years of business expertise landed Joanna a job at a large bank in Newport Beach, where she traded commodities. What was originally intended to be a temporary work residence turned into a permanent residence as she fell in love with Southern California.

Joanna’s inspiration to pursue a career in beauty stemmed from when one of her close friends was unfortunately diagnosed with skin cancer. Worried about her friend’s health and wanting to do anything to make her friend feel beautiful, Joanna learned how to spray tan, by doing this, she could give her friend a beautiful Californian glow without having to put her directly into the harmful rays of the sun. What started out as a way to help her friend turned into a real passion. A passion so strong, Joanna quit her job at the bank and went back to school for her esthetic license.

Joanna first started Live Beautifully on 17th Street, renting a local salon. As her business grew, she expanded to her current location near Fashion Island. Joanna rebranded herself and has expanded her services to meet the different needs and desires of her clients. Not only does she offer airbrush tanning and sugar removal, but Joanna also well known for eyelash extensions and Brows, her amazing soothing touch when delivering facials including the highly demanded HydraFacial, body wraps, and dermablading.
