Sylvia Brownlee

Growing up, Sylvia Brownlee always had dreams of making a difference within the beauty industry. 

Upon graduating from cosmetology school, Brownlee started her decorated career in a high-profile salon where she worked for 10 years. A rising talent, she then made the transition into salon management before ultimately becoming the Director of Education at a renowned skin care institution. It was there that she discovered her passion for enhancing the lives of those who suffer from acne & hyperpigmentation. 

“I, myself, have dealt with both and knew how easily it can affect one’s self-esteem and confidence,” Brownlee recalls. “When your skin is clear and glowing, you feel amazing!” 

In 2015, she took a leap of faith, founding Pure Beauty Skin Bar with the purpose of teaching others how to love and care for their skin.
