Caci Di Russo
Owner, Lead Esthetician

Janiese, a Charlotte native, earned her Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education from Lee University. While attending the Master’s program, she worked at an Aveda day spa in customer service. It was there that she learned about esthetics and gained a love for the beauty industry and everything it involved, especially skin care and waxing. After completing the semester, Janiese attended the Aveda Institute for Esthetics in Atlanta. She is now in her 10th year of practicing esthetics and has worked for some of the top rated spas in Charlotte, including Carmen! Carmen! and Re Salon and Med Spa. Janiese loves meeting new people and building relationships with her clientele as well as furthering her knowledge in the industry. She continues to provide a high level of professionalism, integrity, and compassion for all of her current and future clients.
Alessandra, a 4 year esthetics veteran, loves all things beauty related. She is Toccare's go to esthetician for the latest and most on-trend beauty treatments and techniques available. Alessandra, originally from Venezuela, began her career at the Ballentyne Resort and Spa after attending the Aveda Institute in Charlotte where she was awarded best facial in her class. Along with facials, her expertise lies in different methods of hair removal by utilizing hard wax, soft wax and sugaring depending on the most appropriate for the area and type of hair. She also excels at make up applications and achieving glowing results during facials by listening and assessing her clients needs and working to nourish their skin. Alessandra is also fluent in Spanish.
Meshelle comes to Toccare with 8 years of esthetic experience spanning the country from the Pacific Northwest to Charlotte, NC. After receiving and falling in love with her first facial in 2007, Meshelle left her career in Marketing and Advertising to pursue her new found passion in the art of Skin Care. Before her journey began with our team, Meshelle spent the past four years as a top rated esthetician at the luxurious Ballentyne Resort and Spa. Meshelle found Toccare after seeking a smaller more relationship based experience to have with her clientele. She brings a wealth of education to her clients and specializes in result driven facials by customized exfoliation techniques and addressing their problematic areas. While Meshelle is busy focusing on improving her clients concerns, they tout her as giving the most relaxing facial they have ever received.
Fran is Toccare’s newest addition to our team. She is a Louisiana native and recent Charlottean transplant. She comes to Toccare with three years of esthetic experience and is a Master Sugarist and trainer for Keko Sugar. Before joining the Toccare Team, she trained and worked for one of Baton Rouge’s lead esthetic professionals where she quickly became their top rated Sugarist. While Fran excels at hair removal, she has quickly become a favorite among our clients for facials. She expertly blends her skill and knowledge in the treatment room with an approachable and friendly demeanor. Her passion for skin care, educational manner and personable personality make her an excellent fit for clients looking for a truer understanding of how to care for their skin and for the Toccare Family.
