Hi! I'm Jodi, your personal esthetician. 

This is my story.


Jodi Laub, owner of Jodi Skin + Wax, is dedicated to helping big-hearted folks like you get the best skincare and waxing services in Santa Cruz and Pacific Grove, California.

Why? Because everyone wants to wake up everyday, look in the mirror, and see healthy skin.

For more than 25 years, I've helped awesome men and women like you transform your skin's issues { i.e. acne, wrinkles, crow's feet, pores, redness, dryness and other issues } into skin that is dewy, bright, pampered, and glowing.

Over my career, I've worked in clinical settings (with plastic surgeons) as well as high-end spas. 

That's 25+ years of experience, passion, and expertise — all to your benefit. 


I'm a spa girl. I've always loved them. If you're like me, you may have had some less-than-savory experiences in the past. I promise to do everything possible to honor your time and give you the luxurious, pampered experience you deserve. I take pride in going the extra mile for you, always, whether you're popping in for a speed wax or booking a luxuriously relaxing, hydrating facial with a gentle touch. 

As your professional clinical esthetician, I'm 100% here for you.

I'm deeply honored to help you achieve your skincare goals, and I can't wait to meet you, beautiful!


Happy Clients



"I like working with Jodi because she is courteous, sensitive to my skin care needs and always professional. I’ve worked with other estheticians in the past with less optimal results, such as rashes caused by substandard products used, ingrown hairs, or post-facial skin not looking as vibrant as it should. Since I’ve been seeing Jodi, my skin is glowing and vibrant and fine lines have reduced. I would never use anyone else. Jodi is truly amazing." - Susan


"I love going to Jodi. I always feel instantly comfortable, hanging out with “just the girls”. When I see Jodi, I know that I'm being fully taken care of. She doesn’t try to sell me products that I don’t need, and always has thoughtful recommendations that are in my budget. Seeing Jodi has been good for me and good for my skin!" - Kathy



"I once had a TERRIBLE waxing experience with someone else in a dimly lit basement room, with little explanation and zero finesse! It made me so nervous about getting another wax, but Jodi came highly recommended. She quickly put me at ease. Her expertise and ability make me feel comfortable in a potentially awkward situation. The process was over before I knew it.

The ambiance of her mermaid room is cozy and inviting. The lighting is soft, the music gentle, and the aromatics of the hot towels and hydrosols scented with essential oils made for the best facial I have had in Santa Cruz! My skin is more clear and radiant than it has ever been, and I literally count the days in between my monthly appointments with Jodi! She is wonderful and second to none." - Melissa


"Jodi has a super professional, bubbly personality that makes the whole process seamless, professional, and easy. She's incredibly knowledgable about great skincare habits, and my skin has been brighter and more hydrated than ever. If you're looking for the best esthetician in town, look no further than Jodi. She's awesome." - Raquel
