Since becoming a certified stylist in 1997, Frances has been an educator for Matrix International and has worked international beauty shows and New York’s Fashion Week. Committed to continued education, she has also pursued advanced training with both the Aveda Institute and the Redken Exchange in Manhattan.
Frances continues to propel standards at her own salon, Belleza, particularly with her signature Brazilian blowout treatments. In an attempt to reduce clients’ contact with formaldehyde, she has modified her treatments in two ways—first, she offers clients the option of using Zero+ or lite formulas. The Zero+ solution is formaldehyde-free, and lite treatments are applied in an express time frame that minimizes exposure to the product. Secondly, Frances has invested in two modern technologies that reduce airborne pollutants: Izunami fume irons, whose built-in suction components draw fumes from the air, and the Pure Air chemical-fume extraction system, featuring a 16-inch hood that is positioned above a client’s head to oxidize chemicals while also suffusing her brain with new vocab words.
