Glow Team


Kate Jaksik

Owner, Licensed Esthetician, Spray Tan Technician & Lead Makeup Artist

Hello, My Name is Kate Jaksik. I have been a Licensed Esthetician and Make-up artist for 13 years, and been in the Spa industry for over 14 years. I specialize in Organic Skin Care, Body Waxing, Spray Tanning and special occasion Airbrush Makeup.

My work started on the island of Martha’s Vineyard, MA at a high end day spa. I learned and grew under the care of talented professionals in the industry and they helped mold me into the business professional I am today. I started Glow in 2009 in Westminster MA, and have moved it to be closer to home and family in Western MA.  I have become known in the Pioneer Valley for my Acne Management Facial care, and Age Management facial clientele. I deeply care about skin care and maintenance and will provide you adequate instructions and help with whatever your needs be.  I am also highly experienced in full body speed waxing.

My makeup kit consists of  Dinair Airbrush make-up, Bare Minerals, Tarte, Benecos Organics, Graftobian, Camera Ready Cosmetics, Too Faced, Nars, Lorac, Stila, MAC, Anastasia Beverly Hills, NYX lip paints, and Lavera Organics. These are professional companies used in the industry for producing quality results with camera and film. Four of  these companies are either 100% organic or all natural. This is my philosophy with skin care and make-up.

I travel all over New England primarily on Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard (where I was raised and have worked since 2002.) I am now a bi-coastal resident with three Glow companies, glamming bridal parties in Austin, TX and all over New England! We also travel to brides in Vermont, Maine, and  New Hampshire. My work can be seen and showcased in my portfolio, but I encourage brides to come to the consultation with a bridal picture of what your vision is for your wedding day.

My massage training began in New York City, where I attended the Swedish Institute College of Health Sciences.  There I received training in Shiatsu, Sport, Medical and Swedish Massage from seasoned professionals, completing 1000 hours of rigorous training before earning an Associate Degree in Occupational Studies and Massage Therapy.  My passion for bodywork started before this, while attending Goucher College; in addition to earning a Psychology degree, I studied dance and movement as modalities for emotional and physical wellbeing. Both my academic and professional education are important components of my practice; I strongly believe in the connection between mind, movement and wellness and I strive to integrate these considerations into my work.

My desire to create a holistic practice in my hometown of Amherst lead me back to the Pioneer Valley in 2012.  When I’m not working with massage clients, I am a teacher at Cushman-Scott Preschool and, in my spare time, take dance and yoga classes. I am excited to be expanding my practice at Glow Skin Studio and encourage you to contact me with any questions!

 Carleigh Niedzwiedz 

                                                     Licensed Hair Stylist
Hello, My Name is Carleigh Niedzwiedz. I have been a Licensed Cosmetologist since 2007. The first time I cut my own hair I was 4 years old and when asked why I did it I replied “What I’m going to do this when I’m older anyways ! “ and the rest was history. In middle school I began to really play with updo and formal styling, throughout High School I experimented with coloring. I graduated early from High school and attended Digrigoli Cosmetology School where I excelled in formal styling and color. I am a proud Educator for Keratin Complex, Barber and Cosmetologist (never stop learning.) When it comes to weddings I am in my happy place, updo’s are where my heart is at and I just feel so honored to be a part of everyone’s special day. I take into consideration dress detail, location, time and the bride’s wants/needs when it comes to choosing the best style for your big day! I’ll do my best to take all of the stress and guess work out of your big day as well as support and give advice with anything else that needs catering to. I look forward to meeting all my future Bridal Parties.
