Shear Illusions Salon & Spa’s Portia Milner has parlayed her experience styling models for runway shows and her position as an artistic educator for Pravana Naturceuticals into a career at the welcoming beauty emporium. She snips and styles strands, accenting them with color and lengthening them with extensions or noodles. Instead of using foil for highlights, she uses plastic wrap in order to get as close to the scalp as possible, which helps the color last longer. Portia also tames frizzy hair with keratin straightening services.

When Vanessa became an esthetician, she started out by working at a laser center, where she discovered the healing benefits of microdermabrasion.
