Amber K. Thompson

Whitney Schaaf Senior Stylist

Janet St. Paul Studio for Hair and Beauty is pleased to welcome Amber K. Thompson to their expanding luxury downtown Austin hair salon as Esthetician–Brow and Makeup Specialist. Loved by her Houston clients from her recent venture, Brows By Amber, Amber brings 10 years experience in facial and body waxing, facial threading and microblading, eyebrow tinting, eyelash tinting, spray tanning and makeup application to her new role with Janet St. Paul.

Amber began her career as an esthetician at a family-owned business in Fairfield, Connecticut, performing facials, waxing services and makeup application. Drawn to the makeup and brow specialities, in 2008 she joined Benefit Cosmetics, the San Francisco-based company and global brow authority.

During her 7 years with Benefit, she developed her areas of expertise–brow shaping (waxing, threading, tweezing), eyelash and eyebrow tinting, facial waxing and threading, full body waxing, makeup application and false lash application.

Amber’s skill and rapport with clients resulted in her selection by Benefit Cosmetics to travel across markets and train other technicians. She also represented the company for their east coast flagship location in the SOHO neighborhood of New York City, hosting beauty editors from major publications like Vogue, Glamour, Allure, and Elle. 

“I am looking forward to making Austin beautiful and being apart of a wonderful company and team pursing my passion for people and brows.”
