“I’ve always been driven to help people with my lifelong passion for artistic creations, including: makeup, skincare, beauty and fashion.”
– Catrina Tansey
While her Aunties didn’t appreciate her playing in their cosmetics bags and breaking their favorite lipsticks, that was the start of Catrina’s creative journey as a beauty professional. From color exploration to sewing her own dolls clothes while cows fed on grass nearby, her youth in Krakow, Poland fostered her innovative entrepreneurial spirit.
Living a good life with her own esthetic business, teaching in Esthetic school, coaching students in her beauty salon, and studying business management and marketing, Catrina decided years ago to take a vacation to the United States. And felt instantly like she had found her real home. Always up for a challenge, she stayed and eventually created an Academy in 2010 (after being trained by SofTap & Nouveau Contour) and Om Spa was born.
Now an internationally credentialed and licensed professional esthetician, makeup artist, and sought after teacher and mentor, Catrina’s passion for her profession has kept her current on the latest trends and technology. Her detail-oriented drive and perfectionism combined with her innate natural creative abilities have helped her win awards and to successfully grow her business and training programs. With her technical expertise and talented artist eye for micropigmentation treatments, she is dedicated to raising the standards in the industry.

“It was amazing! Not only does Lisa Meyers know everything about skin, she gives the best facial massage. I also purchased a retinol that she recommended that will address my fine lines and the uneven skin. I will be back in 4 weeks for sure!.”
I had a great experience with Katrina for my first time microblading. Highly recommended for her professionalism and attention to detail.
I have been a client for several years now. Catrina is extremely skilled in dealing with any skin condition. She never does push products or services you don't need, so when she suggests something, I always go with the recommendation. Catrina does a great job and makes you feel very comfortable throughout the entire time. She is truly amazing! I can't imagine what I'd do without her!

I had an excellent experience with Catrina. She spent so much time on the consultation alone that I felt immediately confident in my choice to have my brows microbladed. I'm so glad I did it! Catrina spent so much time getting the color and the shape just right. She listened to my input and made suggestions. In the end I deferred to her expertise and the result is fantastic. The procedure is not painful, just an odd feeling.
I was afraid it would start to hurt after the numbing wore off, but nope, no pain whatsoever! I'm going back to have her do my lips and maybe my eyes. I'm sure she will get the color perfect.

Found OmSpa online and was happy to see that they were looking for models to train new esthetician's. This made it easy and affordable for me to get my eyebrows microbladed. I went in and was greeted by Catrina and Lucia. The overall process did take longer because Lucia was being trained but I didn't mind at all. I arrived at 1pm and left at 4:30. It was reassuring to hear all of the proper steps and procedures necessary to do a great job.
They took their time finding the right color and measuring my brows. I felt confident they knew exactly what they were doing.
My brows turned out beautiful! I will be back for more permanent makeup and recommend asking about being a model to receive discounted services!

The photo attached has four images, the top left is my natural brow before any microblading, the top right is a year after microblading at another location, bottom left is after my second session (touch up that's included), and bottom right is my current brows 10 days after the second session at OM spa. I love how my brows look the most directly after the second session but once they peel and heal, they're slightly lighter but still looking great. Rebecca did my first session and second session was with Catrina. I love the shape of my brows and both ladies were friendly and explained every step to me as we went. Highly recommend!

Katrina is an exceptional esthetician. She has helped me with scarring from an accident that left my face looking rough. My scars have gone down significantly to where people I meet don't even notice that I had skin damage anymore. Katrina has also done wonders to thicken my hairline. I highly recommend that you see if she is able to help you with your permanent makeup needs. She is very impressive!
