Snapshot: Diana Tigre
Occupation: I am a licensed eyelash extension technician, makeup artist, and tattoo technician. I am the owner of Tigre Esthetics in Newtown. My business is located inside The Newtown Beauty Suites at 30 Church Hill Road. It’s all-women-owned business suites with one thing in common: beauty and health.
Family: I am a wife and a boy mom. My three boys’ names are Brandon, 22, Bradley, 10, and Logan, 8. I’m the wife to Leandro Tigre, owner of Leo’s Transport LLC. My oldest son plays the guitar in a boy band called The Tarrys. Bradley plays the trombone, and Logan plays the violin in school.
Pets: We have two rabbits named Pete and Obi.
What do you like to do in your free time? I like to take training classes and practice my skills in the field of beauty. I also love to spend time with my family and enjoy being with friends. We dine out and watch movies. My boys love the popcorn at Edmond Town Hall.
What is your favorite book? My favorite book is You Are A Badass, because it was the first personal growth book I ever read to help me live the type of life I always wanted. It was very helpful in aligning my goals and desires with my actions and attitude.
Who has been the greatest influence in your life? I have too many to share but the three top are my father, my husband, and my good friend Katherine. My father because he gave me the strength to be the woman I’ve become. My husband because he’s given me the purpose, love, and support I always needed. My friend because she gives me the inspiration and courage I always strived for.
If you could spend the day with one person, who would you choose and why? My father, who passed away in July 2022, because I would love to hug and talk to him one more time and tell him how much I love and miss him.
Who is your favorite musical artist? Shakira, a Colombian singer, because she tells her story of how her friends would make fun of her because they said she sounded like a sheep. Now that “sheep” singer is one of the most famous singers in the world.
What is the greatest piece of advice you have ever been given? What you put in the world is what you get back from the world. So if you put love, you get love back.
What is something you cannot live without? My family. I cannot live without my husband and kids, because they are my purpose of life.
What is your proudest accomplishment? Taking the courage to leave my 17 years of working in a secure, corporate job and risking all to start over with my own business.
What would you like The Newtown Bee to cover in the future? Diversity in the town.
