NYC New York Magazine Critics’ Pick
A life-long lover of all things beauty, Elke’s lustrious career began in 1982; with an esthetician’s license and high school diploma received in the same month, she made her way through college working as a facialist and eventually as a waxing specialist.
Her celebrity clientele includes
- Angelica Huston
- Kate Moss
- Blythe Danner
- Jamie Fox
- Alexandra Paul
Elke, also a longtime editorial, commercial, and Oscar makeup artist, specializes in creating non-stenciled, balanced, and full eyebrows that flatter the face, while fixing bad, paint-by-number brow shapes. Clients can choose from tweezers, wax, or a combination of both (though Elke prefers to only work with tweezers and small scissors).
Elke is renowned for The Model Brow® service, a skill honed through years of brow shaping experience. Elke specializes in fixing and reshaping brows by customizing and enhancing the shape of her client’s brows without the use of stencils.
Well-respected for her knowledge and passion for the beauty industry, Elke is frequently quoted in industry and consumer beauty publications, and is often invited to lecture aspiring students of makeup, film and photography.
