Megan Ernstberger just likes to help people feel better.
The 2003 Carmel High School graduate didn’t know what she wanted to do after high school, so when her mother suggested skincare, she decided to give it a try. She hasn’t looked back since.
“All these years later, I still love it,” she said. “It’s a small obsession because I can’t imagine doing anything else. I love making people feel better and seeing how they feel and look afterwards.”
Ernstberger attended Honors Beauty College to become an esthetician, and she opened her business, Megan Danielle Skincare, in the Carmel City Center this summer. She offers facials, peels, waxing and more.
“I do a lot of custom facials depending on what’s going on with the skin at the moment, and I decide then and there what best for that particular day,” she said.
Ernstberger has never had her own business before, but she has worked in various day spas around the Indianapolis area.
“I was based here, and I lived nearby, and it’s where a lot of my clientele happened to live,” she said on why she decided to start her business in Carmel. “It just made perfect sense, and I had the opportunity to purchase an existing business, and the spot I’m in is awesome. I’ve only been here (a few months), but it’s better than what I hoped for. (My clients) feel better and nobody ever leaves upset or sad. The relaxation and the trust and the relationships you build with the clients … there’s a lot that goes into it.”
