Lighting up every room she walks into, Monica started as an employee of BRUN nearly 15 years ago while studying at Camosun College. After falling in love with the industry, the community and the amazing clientele, Monica became owner at the young age of just 24 years. She settled down and got to work building her business, known today as Victoria’s Downtown Boutique Body Bar. Raised in Suquamish by an extremely entrepreneurial family, Monica immediately hit the ground running and has been the face of Brun in every way since.
After spending close to every day over almost 15 years managing her business, juggling her time with her spray tan clients, 5 year old son Hudson, partner Ray, and a large extended family, Monica has recently hired her first assistant and salon manager; Wylie. With Wylie at Brun, Monica can now enjoy exercising her love for the outdoors and adventure and now more than ever feel confident when away from Brun and watch her success, dedication and hard work grow.
Self-taught and specializing in airbrush tanning, Monica’s committed approach to the art of spray tanning has revolutionized Victoria’s sunless tanning. Today, Brun clients continue to request Monica for the perfect Spray Tan. Book in with Monica today; we guarantee you will fall in love with her and leave with a flawless faux tan! Monica is always energized and happy to spend the time with her returning clients.
Outside of Brun, Wylie has a strong passion for travel and a hidden talent for finding the best vacations at the lowest price! Her love for vacations ties hand in hand with her love for the guest experience and has lead her to running her own vacation rental business. Her dedication and hard work has proven to be very successful over the past few years. Wylie gets excited for those visiting Victoria and is the perfect host to travelers by communicating all the greatest activities, restaurants, and things to explore on beautiful Vancouver Island.
Stop by Brun and let Wylie be your host. She looks forward to meeting you and welcoming you into the Brun family!
