“I always thought there’s a hair or nail salon on every corner, why not makeup? Why aren’t pro-makeup artists easily accessible outside of a mall?” said Kristina Han, Own Your Wonder Founder and CEO. “It was exactly the service I wanted for myself—gym, shower, makeup, then straight to work.”

The Harvard-educated lawyer and former Olympic swimmer couldn’t let it go. After meeting another mom at her daughter’s elementary school and posing the “Why isn’t there a Drybar for makeup?” question, the two began to collaborate. Own Your Wonder at 1659 Wisconsin, NW in Georgetown celebrated their Grand Opening with a small reception offering guests complimentary mini makeovers and plenty of Whispering Angel Rose. Own Your Wonder, the first makeup bar in DC offers à la carte makeup application services and monthly membership programs that fit with a client’s personal aesthetic and lifestyle.
