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.
Karen Hawkins, a certified PCA skin representative, incorporates the product line into her facials to gently combat skin problems such as excessive oil or stubborn acne. Working from inside Salon Ventures, she also slathers warm wax over unwanted fuzz on arms, legs, backs, and chests for a smooth finish.
Emily learned how to expertly cut and color manes while a student at Aveda Institute. Now settled into the professional world, she spends her days at the helm of a salon chair inside Bello Salon, trimming stray locks and dressing up do’s with highlights.
Amy Tobias and Cathy Murray, aestheticians and co-owners of Transforming Techniques Salon and Medical Spa, each bring 17 years of beauty-biz experience to their treatment chairs. They and their team lavish complexions with a wide range of skin services, from antibacterial and oxygen facials to slightly more intensive chemical peels and wrinkle-fighting injections. Stylists tend to men's, women's, and kids' locks, keeping ends fresh and hairdos manageable, and techs groom both natural and artificial nails. Massage therapists knead stress from tense muscles, and depilation experts use wax to whisk unwanted body hair away from faces, legs, and plates of nachos.
Within Utopia Salon & Day Spa, a beauty emporium specializing in skincare, massage, makeup application, and nail services, Stephanie exploits her steady hands and keen eye to sculpt flattering 'dos. She performs men's, women's, and kids' haircuts; transforms texture with perms and relaxers; and adds vibrancy and depth with coloring and highlighting treatments. Stephanie also performs Brazilian blowouts, which leave locks more manageable than a well-trained canine actor.
