Advanced Skin Care and Wellness

Thank you for visiting The Modern Hue.

My name is Vanessa Marianne Crewe Ntabona,

and I am the private owner, founder, funder and operator of this dynamic advanced skin care company.

It was first founded in 2006.

I am very much an 80s baby, born on the warm sunny island of Jamaica. I grew up in the winter wonders lands of Upstate New Paltz New York. Most of my adult years were spent in Albany NY, where I achieved my bachelors degree, state board certification, and became state licensed as an Esthetician. Since 2004 I have treated thousands of clients along the entire east coast of the US, teamed with dozens of iconic brands like, MAC, Origins, American Laser Company, Milady Cengage Learning, European Wax Center, Ulta and more.

With well over 33k clinical hours in the wellness and beauty field I can proudly consider myself a skin care expert. 


I have had severe acne too, so I understand problem skin and poor health habits from all advantage points.

I specialize in fixing acne in teens and adults, and have learned many methods to healing the skin, along with the mind and body. I am passionate about natural beauty, glowing vitality, and human health and so as Master Skin Care Therapist I have merged health, alkaline living, with natural cosmetic beauty... I call this The Modern Hue.

I perform professional clinical skin care serves as well as offer premium product retail that holistically treats: acne, dry skin, sensitive skin, premature aging, uneven pigmentation, stress, excess weight gain, malnutrition and daily aches and pain.

I assist people in gaining back the quality of life they seek through gentle detoxing, dietary supplements, esteem coaching, specialized self-care home-care routines and

customized in spa office treatments.
