Aesthetic + Co

Ronni Whisner -INTERVIEW

What is Aesthetic & Co and who’s behind this crazy thing?! 
We interviewed the Owner & Founder of Aesthetic & Co, Ronni Whisner

Tell us about your brand. *
“I have been a licensed Esthetician for about 10 years and in 2020 I made the decision to start my own online company, Aesthetic & Co. It was important that my brand reflected myself and the strong core values that I have. My online store features beauty and wellness products that are all natural, earth and health friendly and specifically chosen by myself. I also provide esthetic mentorships and classes for beauty professionals through my Aesthetic Academy on the site. Graphic design has become a passion of mine and something that I love because it lets me utilize my creativity so it was a no brainer for me to also offer these services for business professionals.” 

When did you know that this was the right path for you? *
“I knew I wanted to become an Esthetician my junior year of high school. My hairstylist, who owned her own business, told me about Estheticians and 10 years ago in my small town, no one knew what that was. I loved skin and makeup and the beauty world but I just didn’t have interest in doing hair. As a child, I was always taking care of my skin and trying to do face masks at sleepovers. I then immediately toured Esthetic schools and big spas to get the full experience of the career. I was sold!”

What do you like most about what you do? *
“As a strong empath, I love being a listening ear to my guests and get to make an impact on their life whether that be emotionally or through my services.” 

What is the biggest obstacle you have faced in your career, and how did you overcome it? *
“Before Aesthetic & Co, I owned a spa for two years and then merged it with another salon in town. After a year and a half into the merger, I had to make a tough decision to leave that partnership. I never would have thought I would give up my dream and leave something I had put so much blood, sweat, and tears into. I overcame the emotional toll by pushing forward. I learned so much about myself and business during my time as a spa owner and I it has given me the tools to get where I am now. I redirected my attention and started pouring my energy into A+C. I am extremely grateful for that adventure and I am now on a new journey and the more I learn, the more I grow!”

If your phone could ring right now with your dream opportunity, what would that be? *
“That’s a tough one but I think I would love a job in developing beauty companies and brand creation.”

What do you want people to remember most about you and your career? *
“I want to be remembered for doing impactful and positive things while empowering others to be their best selves.”
