Monica began as a powder girl for television at Silver Cup Studios making sure all sorts of people from Diane Von Furstenberg to Elvis impersonators appeared “non-shiny” on national TV. Coming from a small city in the South, this was a dream come true. Ultimately, her love of skincare and makeup had her working in various department stores and Madison Avenue boutiques.
After years of personal beauty shopping for clients, she decided to make a change. She graduated from L’Atelier Esthetique, the top NYC aesthetic school, and began working at a Madison Avenue skin and laser boutique shortly thereafter. Within her first year in this new career, she created a large following of loyal clientele. Within three years she was the busiest and most requested technician there. In 2014, she created a partnership with one of the top modeling agencies in NYC and began treating models on a regular basis before important castings, runway shows, and campaigns.
Marga Esquival, a rising star in the modeling world, named Monica in Teen Vogue as one of her beauty secrets used before her runway shows. Monica has had other mentions and accolades in beauty and model blogs and has written an article for Euro Cosmetic magazine, a trade journal for skin care manufacturers that includes articles by top innovators, doctors and chemists.
In 2016, Monica Heller opened her first studio in Murray Hill. Her vision is to create a space that is comfortable, intimate, and peaceful.
Monica’s commitment is to keep it simple, safe, effective and have you realize how truly unique and special you are. Together, we all make a difference and we each have talents to discover share and contribute.
