Sequoia Leopold – Owner
Makeup Artist / Airbrush Technician / Lash Stylist
I started Flawless Beauty Bars as a dream to create a place where women would want to hang out and get ready for a fun event. My philosophy of creating a space where beauty is celebrated, not judged or preached came from my own experience growing up. I always felt intimidated by the beauty industry and left out like an industry of cool where I just never quit belonged. My goal at Flawless is a culture where women of all ages, backgrounds, and level of beauty knowledge are welcomed.
While I continue to increase my skill set with lash extensions and most recently blowouts my expertise still lands with airbrush tanning. I have been working with airbrush sunless tanning products for several years at home and have finally decided to provide this service to my clients as a business. Since I first learned of airbrush tanning in 2003, the solutions and applicator systems have continued to improve, and I am dedicated to staying up to date as the sunless tanning industry continues to advance.
As a former member of the Seahawks Cheerleading Squad, the Seattle SeaGals, I had to be tan year round and learn makeup techniques that looked beautiful in person as well as on camera. I have taken all my experience with products and application techniques of the years and brought them to my team at Flawless Beauty Bars. Our goal with all of our beauty services is to create a more flawless version of you (our clients). We want everyone to leave feeling like themselves, only flawless!
My clients have included Macklemore and Ryan Lewis dancers The Macklemorettes, NFL cheerleading squad The Seattle SeaGals, Real Housewives Orange County, Hollywood celebrity, Miss Washington, skin cancer survivors, mothers-to-be, nursing mothers, and countless brides.
I am dedicated to providing my clients with a beautiful natural sunless tan while saving their skin from the harmful effects of the sun and artificial tanning beds.
Due to the overwhelming demand for my time and the continued expansion of Flawless Beauty Bars, I may not be able to do the tanning services myself. However, I am always looking to improve the services we offer so if there is ever any issues with the service you receive at Flawless Beauty Bars, please email me directly so that I can do further training for all our technician’s. Thank you again for your understanding and I cant wait for the exciting future for Flawless Beauty Bars.

Meet The Pups of Flawless Beauty Bars
I am a dedicated animal lover, and supporter of The Seattle Humane Society and ASPCA. Help me promote animal adoption and education by visiting Seattle Humane Society.
My loving Pomeranian, Beta Rho (rescued in 2001) was with us at Flawless Beauty Bars since the very
first day. She enjoyed being at work with me at work almost everyday supervising the staff and setting the standard of our customer service. She passed in October 2014, but her spirit lives on at our studio every day, with the endless love she showed everyone she met.
We now have several ‘shop dogs’ who join us at work each day…meet all the Flawless Dogs.
Callie Schneider: Manager of Operations & Culture
Makeup Artist / Airbrush Technician
I love all things beauty, especially makeup. I come from a big family, and my curiosity for cosmetics truly came from stealing my older sister’s makeup, and experimenting.
I started working in the beauty industry four years ago, and I have developed my skills with multiple cosmetic and skin care lines. My extensive knowledge of all the various lines enhances my ability to customize a makeup look or lesson specifically for you.
I love the ability to connect with my clients, learn their likes and dislikes, and then have the opportunity to transform them into how they have always wanted to look and feel.
MUA / Lash Stylist / Airbrush Technician
I have always had a deep passion for the cosmetic world. From the colors and textures to the magic it can work. From always being the friend to do hair and makeup for events, to attending one of North America’s top Cosmetology Schools, Blanche MacDonald. I have developed my passion into a skill I can use on a regular basis. Having received a diploma in Body Airbrushing, Makeup, Special Effects and so much more, Flawless Beauty Bars has given me a place to belong and grow my skills in the working world. Being part of a team who’s mission is to make women feel beautiful and comfortable in their own skin, without changing their individual qualities, is all I could ask for. Being part of what makes someone smile when the look in the mirror, is a gift I would never trade.
