TLC Aesthetics offers a host of beautifying services.

When Tina Wilson started working in Anthem almost 10 years ago at a local salon, she immediately noticed the community support for small businesses. As the first person to offer eyelash extension services in Anthem, Tina’s clientele grew and after a few years, she was offered an opportunity to rent a room inside another business, which is where her company, TLC Aesthetics was born.
“I moved TLC into another salon a few years later,” says Tina. “In 2015, my younger daughter earned her aesthetics license and began working with me. In 2017, we moved into our own studio. We share our 1,200-square-foot suite with Michele Celentano Photography.”
Although TLC started out primarily as an eyelash extension business, they’ve expanded to include a host of other beauty services ranging from microneedling treatments, chemical peels, facials, dermaplaning, waxing, and spray tanning.
“We’re very passionate about what we do and serving our clients to the best of our abilities,” says Tina, although she admits it can sometimes be all consuming. “Chelsey Rhodes is a full-time esthetician/eyelash extension specialist and is a full-time student working towards her nursing degree, and I’m a full-time aesthetician/eyelash extension specialist and the owner of TLC Aesthetics. We have some crazy schedules doing what we love and working towards our goals. Creating downtime can be very challenging.”
This doesn’t stop Tina and Chelsey from giving back to the community. As they continue to add innovative services to their menu of treatment options, the pair finds time to give back to the community. “We spent many years volunteering with Special Olympics, including hippotherapy (special needs and horses). The Special Olympics is something that has always been close to our hearts and our family has always had pets and a love for helping those we’re able to help,” says Tina. “We also work with several animal rescue groups to help find homes for unwanted pets and those in dire situations––many have ended up living at our home.”
The pair is also active in the Anthem Area Chamber of Commerce, where TLC has been a member for a year.
“Michele (Celentano) has been a longtime member and encouraged me to join,” explains Tina, who experienced the hometown spirit the organization is known for at TLC’s grand opening last year. “I was completely overwhelmed by the attendance of the chamber members. I cannot express what an incredible feeling it was to be supported by these amazing people I had only met briefly. I’m grateful to be part of such a caring organization.”
What’s your biggest business pet peeve?
No shows, clients who don’t call or show up for scheduled appointments.
What are you most proud of?
I’m very proud of the quality of service we strive to give every client. We have an amazing clientele that have supported our growth and changes along the way. Also, we’re very fortunate to have positive relationships with other professionals in our industry.
Best words of wisdom you’ve received?
Don’t take everything in business too personally. Stay humble enough to grow and confident enough to walk away if something isn’t working.
