Welcome to The Modern Hue! Welcome to a World of Wellness, Health and Beauty!

Hello my name is Vanessa Ntabona, and I am the founder, owner, and operator of The Modern Hue LLC.

Located in Northern Georgia, in Gwinnett County, my beautiful clinical spa boutique is a pleasant 40-minute drive outside of Atlanta.  

As a Leading Aesthetician and Pioneering Skin Care Educator, this year I excited to branch out further.  New as well as

seasoned estheticians are invited to study in depth, "the art of esthetics" alongside myself. Join me in 1 on 1 mentoring sessions or

group classes.  I look forward to holding space and sharing all I have gathered in the health and beauty industry for the last 18 years.
Allow me to introduce myself... I was born on the beautiful island of Jamaica, then raised near the elevated mountain landscapes of upstate New York. Most of my adult years were spent in Albany NY, where I achieved my Bachelors-Degree in Communication & Rhetoric, African Studies and English. During my junior year I was bitten by the business bug, and I was then forever enchanted by the allure of enterprise, ownership and serving customers. It as a year after graduation that I was certain that I wanted to dedicate my life to skin care, selfcare and the importance of everyday healing of the body. By 2005 I began to study, research, and practice the art of esthetics, completing and passing with honors my certification, state license and many continued education classes. I give a big thanks to the Aesthetic Science Institute in Latham NY. I couldn't have asked for a better environment to learn. I remember feeling well educated, ready, and confident. I had become a Skin Care Therapist, and the rest was history, well herstory ;)

Looking back at my career for the last 18 years, I proudly enjoy knowing that I have assisted thousands of clients improve, correct and manage their skin heath, and overall wellness across this nation. I am continuously honored to be a part of any transformative result, by way of one-on-one customized skin care consults, treatments, and premium product recommendations. I love creating space for people to relax and restore themselves. I think my clients enjoy time at The Modern Hue because they learn, revitalize, and get the support that is needed in seasons of change... I offer treatments in-office or by online telecare. I have premium medical quality vegan products, that all have been vetted and curated by me, this is very special. Its wonderful knowing you have a pro on your side, every step of the way. I want my clients to have access to at- home products so their experience in treatment expends into their personal life.  Skin care and selfcare is a lifestyle, thus the online shop is always growing, expanding, and sports 3 different professional lines.

I have worked with the best-of-the-best and am proud to be a pioneering Esthetician featured in Milady Cengage textbooks since 2008. My techniques and methods have been trademarked by the best in the world, and used to showcase how esthetics is done.

Special mention to the companies below that have allowed me space to learn, grow, and innovate the self-care culture as a top skin care therapist:

MAC Cosmetics, Austin Institute, Ulta, Sallies, Origins, American Laser Company, and European Wax Center. With well over 30k clinical hours in the wellness and beauty field I am highly specialized to treatment all stages of acne, rapid aging, sensitive skin, eczema, uneven complexion, and more. I spend time on habits, patterns and mindsets that impact the body as a whole. This is so important when we want long term results.
I initially got into the spa industry to give myself a chance to regain a calm mind, balanced energy, and to develop a way to have clearer skin too.  As young as 15 I suffered with acne. It worsened as I got older to cystic acne, which was devastating, so I understand the impact of troubled skin, a stressed mind, poor diet, unbalanced hormones... It is all interconnected. I am over 40 years young now and am confident in having cracked the code on acne, good living, and super selfcare.  I have developed many methods to healing the skin, along with the mind and body. For without a holistic appreciation towards beauty, your victory will be short lived.
I am passionate about sustainable natural beauty, glowing vitality, and joyful health.  Thus, I have intertwined holistic-alkaline-living, with advanced natural cosmetic treatments. This infused marriage of healing habits, optimistic mindsets, access to quality plant-based botanical herbs is what I lovingly call The Modern Hue. TMH mentality doesn't live in the past nor look too far into the future. We rather choose to focus on the now and make everyday count.  Healing is daily, and that is the real art of esthetics in my eyes. Like a phoenix we rise despite the challenge or set back. I am determined to achieve my better version and warmly invite you to do the same. I understand that life is full of bumps, bruises, and blemishes.  But here at The Modern Hue Skin Care Spa Studio we treat ourselves with love, care, grace, awareness and superfood ingredients.

Your skin tells a story of the quality of your time well spent or time lost in lack ... how will your next chapter read?
Or a better question is:  When was the last time you had an amazing holistic facial treatment, peaceful time for yourself? 

I look forward to working with you! We are now taking new clients!
