About ReadHead by Roux Atelier

Because the world needed another beauty blog.

ReadHead (pronounced “red head”) is the beauty blog for Roux Atelier. It was born out of passion for providing people with the tools to fall back in love with the skin they’re in.

The author of ReadHead is the owner and Master Aesthetician of Roux Atelier. The content is not affiliated with any skin care or makeup line. We want to bring honesty and transparency – reviews are 100% unbiased and unpaid.  Products have personally been tested and ingredients well-researched.

ReadHead focuses on reviews, ingredients and blending science with aesthetics.  While this blog focuses on products made for fair and sensitive skin, many of the techniques and products can be used for any skin and hair type.

Couture SkinLove for the fair and free.

Roux Atelier focuses on custom solutions for skincare. SkinLove means taking care of your skin, but loving the skin you’re in.  Fair and sensitive skin brings its own challenges that ReadHead is here to address so you can feel confident in a product’s claims and efficacy.

Career: After spending most of her career in sales and marketing leadership, Stacie’s calling was to pursue her passion for skincare, plastic surgery and dermatology.  She has three years of medical aesthetics experience in various roles from nurse provider to coordinator in one of the top markets in the world and has worked in one of the largest medical aesthetics practices. Stacie has received training by top national trainers , Galderma and Allergan, and the Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery Symposium from Mount Sinai in New York City.

Education: She graduated Cum Laude  with a BSN from Mount Sinai in New York City and completed her clinicals within its magnet-status hospital. During her studies she participated in a prestigious Clinical Research Fellowship with Mount Sinai’s Center for Nursing Research and Innovation. Her research centered around health awareness and self-care of nursing students; her work was chosen as a scientific poster winner at the 2020 Innovation Day. Stacie also graduated at the top of her class with an aesthetics certification from the Aveda Arts and Sciences institute in New York City.  Her goal is to be a top provider in medical aesthetics and dermatology, assist in reconstructive plastic surgery and provide personal joy to others.

From the Author:

“My journey here started when I debated for a long time on whether to do a blog or not. There are thousands already out there. But when I asked my network about the thought of just ONE more beauty blog, my fellow redheads shouted at the top that they need somewhere to go that works for them.  I felt the same.
Once this journey started to catch fire a bit, I started Roux Atelier to begin to put a stake in the ground that I’m serious about bringing a sophistication and credibility to the industry while maintaining transparency and a down-to-earth approach.
My whole existence within the skin and beauty world has landed in the ‘not quite right’ section.  My skin was sensitive but needed tough love.  Foundations were too neutral or too dark or stark white. Colors I wore looked different on me than my blonde and brunette friends.  My closet took on varying shades of black, gray and tan, and my makeup palettes about the same.  What’s a redhead who’s personality isn’t reflected in what she’s showing to the outside world to do, and I’m gaining all of this training I want to share with others? Pave the way.”
