SAMANTHA YAKE, 29 - CHEEKS AND CO.
OWNER + SELF-PAMPERING PRO
WHY I GOT INTO THE BIZ / WHAT INSPIRES ME:
Where to begin! I started my business through a handful of different passions, avenues, and coincidences. Ever since I was a young girl, I love to make people feel good about themselves! Working in array of customer service positions from being a counter manager for Christian Dior to working at my local fire department to being a "connoisseur of mom life", I have had a passion for people!
I started making oils for family and friends a while back. Fast forward years later, I gave birth to my third child (one of the best days of my life!). A few months after that, my hair started falling out in clumps (thanks, no thanks, shower drain for showing me the progression of my hair loss) my dreaded childhood baby whisps were also back with a vengeance! With my hair confidence went down the drain (literally) it was back to the drawing board of trying to find something with ingredients that I could actually pronounce, that was nourishing for my hair, and that I would feel great about putting on my kid's body.
After not finding EXACTLY what I wanted, I started crafting my own! The oils that I mixed together have been nothing short of wonderful for myself, friends, family, and my new clients. I feel SOOO good knowing that people genuinely love my product and they feel confident and smelling yummy while using it!
My inspiration for my passions comes from my little tribe, clients, nature, nostalgic memories, and my faith in all things.
