‘Queen of Wax’ loves any color except pink

Finds fun in dancing and spending time with family

Andreia Longshore, founder and CEO of ‘Brazilian Waxing by Andreia’, is Ms. CEO of the Month for February 2010, representing the theme “Beauty and Love.” Senior correspondent, Felicia Joy, talked with her a bit about what she loves and what keeps her energized and beautiful, even when she is taking care of business.
Here is what she shared:   

Andreia Longshore is Ms. CEO of the Month for February 2010 representing the editorial theme

  • Family status: Married for eight years with three beautiful girls—ages 6, 7 and 16.
  • Your approach to balance: Sometimes I feel both business and family equally pull me in opposite directions, is that balance? On a serious note, I take time away from my business and spend a lot of time with my children when they are out of school, whether that’s on spring break, summer break, Christmas break or other breaks; family always comes first.
  • Favorite color: Any color—except pink! (FJ: We were shocked because of the pink Beetle!)
  • This makes me feel beautiful: My natural tan Latina skin tone.

    Andreia Longshore, February 2010 Ms. CEO of the Month, shows off her business savvy and style in a classic Ms. CEO tee.

  • I spend my free time: With family, shopping and traveling.
  • Nickname: Queen of Wax.
  • Favorite sport: Soccer!
  • Favorite song: I listen to all types of music. When I was about 10 years old I was in a fashion show and performed to “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” by Cyndi Lauper. There are many Brazilian artists I enjoy but I also grew up listening to Madonna, Celine Dion, Elton John and Mariah Carey.
  • Love to: Dance—the Samba is my favorite.
  • Businesswoman you admire the most: Oprah.
  • My hero is: My mother. I have always admired her and her ability to overcome adversity.
  • Image—who cares or worth the work: Worth the work. Image is very important. My clients expect me, my estheticians and my salon to look our best at all times. In order to maintain a healthy and beautiful image it is important to take time for yourself and get pampered a little bit. A quick trip to the mountains or a short cruise in the Caribbean can clear your mind, get you refocused and ready to take on the world. Life is too short not to enjoy it!
