Taryn Quinterri, CEO of Cosmetic Aesthetics, was born in Tucson, Arizona and raised in Phoenix. She spent her childhood and young adult life as a dancer, which introduced her to the world of beauty at a young age, but was still indecisive on what career path she wanted to take. Taryn studied architecture at Arizona State University and eventually switched majors to general Mathematics. It wasn’t until she was introduced to the aesthetic industry through tattoo removal that she found her true passion.
At the age of 18, Taryn got a tattoo that she soon regretted and desperately wanted removed. She sought out the removal process and was amazed at how well it worked, which peaked her interest to become part of the cosmetic industry. Being the driven individual that she is, she relocated to south Florida and enrolled herself in aesthetic school to further her education for Electrolysis, which is where cosmetic/paramedical tattooing was brought to her attention and ignited a strong passion inside of her to make a career for herself. Immediately after graduation, Taryn began sourcing the best artists and trainers in the world in their respective specialties to learn everything she could from these mentors or icons.
She traveled all over the world to expand her knowledge and has been trained by world renowned professionals in the industry including Nataliya Yeremenko, Toni Belfatto, Alina Soloveva, Linda Dixon, Tina Davies, Doreen Lindgren, Anna Savina, Daria Chuprys, Teryn Darling, Will Anthony, Lanette Scherr, Rhonda Vacanti, Nancy Gagliardo, Joyce Carusoula, Jodi Stoski, Marjorie Winebrenner Grimm, Mary Ritcherson, James Olaya and more.
This motivated Taryn to take her career to the next level, and in 2013 she launched her own business, which is how Cosmetic Aesthetics came to be. She quickly became globally recognized for her work and specializes in Scalp Micropigmentation and/or Tricopigmentation, scar revision/camouflage and hyper realistic eyebrow tattooing. She is also a highly respected trainer, having classes in Scalp color theory, machine and manual eyebrows and SMP/Tricopigmentation.
Taryn hosted the first ever SMP class in the United States and now travels the world to teach SMP and share her wealth of knowledge with her students. Taryn was recognized at the Scalp Guru Meeting of the Minds with an award for Outstanding Contribution to the SMP Industry as well as giving an expert presentation to industry colleagues on Color Theory and the difference between organic and inorganic pigments/inks. She is an active member of the Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals and the American Academy of Micropigmentation.
Cosmetic Aesthetics is now located in Taryn’s hometown, Phoenix, Arizona, where her business will continue to grow, as well as her passion for aesthetics. She continues to take numerous education courses and attends several conventions throughout the year in order to stay in tune with the ever changing world of aesthetics. Taryn takes great pride in her work, her teaching, and her students, and because of that she will continue to be one of the most knowledgeable and well respected professionals in this growing business.
