Beautifying people is in Gisel Campbell's blood. The aesthetician is the daughter of a hairstylist and the niece of a nail technician, but she didn?t grow up wanting to pursue cosmetology and skincare. It wasn?t until she reached her 20s and began experimenting with her own makeup regimen that she came to love sharing her skills with other people. In addition to an aesthetician?s license, Gisel's extensive training includes certification in microdermabrasion, applying chemical peels, and facial waxing, which she performs at her space inside Salon Ventures and during gorilla wax-a-thons for charity.
A graduate of the esteemed Elite Hair Academy, Victoria Simpson has professionally styled hair since 2010. Within Salon Noir's cozy brick house, she showcases her talents, which include elongating locks with natural-looking extensions, brightening strands with eye-catching color, and trimming tresses into stylish looks. Using haircare products packed with natural ingredients, Victoria and her fellow stylists' other services include administering precise cuts for men and women and creating updos for special occasions. After appointments with Victoria, clients can consult one of Salon Noir's cosmetologists for skin-enriching services, such as facial waxing and subtle makeup applications.
Nora's Design Group enlists talented, friendly staffers who wield products from brands such as Aquage, Biolements, and Redken as they groom guests during a collection of salon and spa services. At wood-paneled styling stations, hairstylists snip and color locks as nearby nail techs gussy up hands and feet with OPI polish. Inside the studio's private rooms, therapists ease aches with therapeutic and relaxation massages, while aestheticians give unwanted hairs the boot from brows, bikini, and legs with warm wax and notarized eviction notices.

The sweet irony of becoming a stylist is that no matter how good you are, you can never give yourself a haircut. What do you look for in a stylist when you need a trim?
When looking for the best stylist, I always look for someone who will take the time to KNOW me and my likes and dislikes. Ask me? Ask who I am as a person! Someone who will take the time to know me.
What's the number one grooming tip every person should know?
Never blow dry your hair with the nozzle of your dryer facing up! It will always make your hair frizzy! Always put a cool rinse on your hair to add shine!
What other services do you offer besides haircuts?
Perming, coloring, hi-lighting, and facial waxing.
