Lead Instructor: Aliesh Pierce

My name is Aliesh Pierce. I’m the founder of AskAliesh and the author of the textbook Treating Diverse Pigmentation. I’m an educator and brand strategist who entered the beauty industry over 30 years ago to establish myself as a celebrity makeup artist.

While holding the position of personal makeup artist to India.Arie, Yolanda Adams, and R.Kelly, I became interested in skincare. Upon obtaining my license, I began writing for trade magazines and was invited to collaborate on a project for Burn Survivors Throughout the World. This experience fueled my desire to offer the same quality of service to all my clients, regardless of their ethnicity or the severity of their skin issues.

Inspired by my desire to share my philosophy with the next wave of master estheticians, I created the AskAliesh e-learning platform to share my expertise in skin physiology, cosmetic chemistry, product development, and brand strategy.

At the ongoing request of my peers, I also offer hands-on master aesthetics classes, where I train estheticians on the proper use of chemical peels, advanced skin analysis, and electrical modalities. In addition, I continue to support marketing and sales teams seeking to build personal care brands that serve the multi-ethnic population.

As a registered yoga instructor, RYT® 200, I actively promote a holistic lifestyle to my loyal clients. Through hands-on treatments and product recommendations, I offer wellness strategies that encompass body, mind, and spirit. I currently offer services by appointment only.
