Though stylist Yolanda Gales honed her craft at the Aveda Beauty Institute, she
first trimmed hair under the watchful eye of her mother and grandmother, both seasoned hair-stylists. Today, Yolanda leads a team of stylists in her own salon, Benote' Salon. The four beauticians apply their knowledge of modern styling techniques to cut clients' hair, and add color to tresses with coloring and highlights. Moisturizing treatments and L'Oreal Power-doses, meanwhile, help to soothe dry scalps that might otherwise try to drink rain water from thirst. Yolanda stocks Benote's shelves with hair-coloring and strengthening Chromatics dyes, silicone and sulfate-free Precious Oil hair shampoo, and wild ginger-infused Awapuhi conditioner.
