CEO and Licensed Master Esthetician
Founder, Ellery Lystad holds a BFA from the University of North Dakota and is a licensed Master Esthetician. Ellery studied esthetics at The Aveda Institute of Minneapolis, MN, and has over seven years of experience in the field. Ellery has performed over 5,000 facial treatments and skincare consultations during her time as an Esthetician.
Prior to entering the world of esthetics, Ellery traveled the world as a singer on cruise lines, usually dressed in sequins head to toe. Ever in pursuit of glamour and cosmetics she tested products from around the world and has now curated her own line of skincare to fit each of her client’s needs.
Ellery is most passionate about having a connection with her clients and getting them results. Through a thorough consultation and skin analysis, Ellery is able to customize a care plan that includes facial treatments and skincare for home use. Ellery specializes in noninvasive facial rejuvenation and the optimization of your skin health.
Bria is a Fargo-based brow artist. She has over 10 years of experience in the esthetic industry. She went to the Aveda Institute Minneapolis for Esthetics in 2011 and then graduated from nursing school in 2017. She is also a labor and delivery nurse and has a passion for women’s health. She loves to help make women feel strong, confident, and beautiful. She currently lives in Fargo with her husband, new baby, and two cats.
Kelsey Schroeder received a BFA from Viterbo University and returned to school to become a Licensed Esthetician in the Fall of 2020. Her love of the beauty industry is deeply rooted in her professional performance background, and her passion for people drove her to explore a professional career in esthetics.
In most recent years, Kelsey could be found singing onboard luxury cruise ships across the seven seas (much like Ellery, usually dressed in head-to-toe sequins). This experience afforded her incredible travel and professional opportunities, as well as the chance to experience new cultures and build close relationships with guests and crew from all over the world.
Kelsey believes in honest work and building a strong foundation with clients in order to ensure a comfortable and personalized experience. Her favorite services at Ellery Milan Beauty are the Brow Makeover (always one for a striking reveal), and the Geneo+ Facial paired with Cryotherapy. She also loves the Luminous Foundations by Glo Skin Beauty for a soft, healthy, dewy look, and absolutely swears by the Alastin Hydratint SPF.
