RANI (Licensed Esthetician)

My name is Rani. I am a Licensed Esthetician from New York State. I was born in India and went to college in Alabama. After completing University of Alabama in Birmingham, I moved to New York. It was during this period, I started getting really bad acne. Trying to clear up persistent breakout, I tried EVERYTHING. Finally I started getting facials from my good friend (who was an Esthetician). My skin improved tremendously. This got me interested in skin care and products. I attended the Aveda Institute in Soho. As an Esthetician student at AVEDA I received their holistic skin care training. I opened ButterCup in 2011. I wanted to create a place that gives great skincare services for affordable prices. We invite you to come try our facials and back facials. We hope to see you soon. (Please know Rani has relocated and temporarily away for personal reasons)
