Allison, Owner & Artistic Director
Since childhood, I have always had a passion for experimenting with hair styles. I enjoy creating everything from great color and cuts to formal styles. Most of all, I enjoy getting to know our guests and giving them a perfect look that satisfies their lifestyle.
Paul, Stylist & Location Lead
With 16+ years experience, I know the importance of education and keeping clients aware of the latest trends. Who doesn’t love to show off their hot new look?! Especially when shopping on 3rd street. I pride myself on my ability to deliver a customized service based a client’s look and lifestyle. I am known for my formal styling to be classic and refined. Also, my other strengths are precision cuts accompanied by specialty color to create a polished appearance. I strive above all things to help my clients to feel b-e-a-utiful every day.
For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to be a stylist. I feel blessed that this has been my career for the last 9 years. Along the way I have been fortunate enough to train with some incredible artists such as Sam Villa, Kris Sorbie, Phillip Wilson and Leah Freeman. Additionally, I truly love the relationships I have built with my guests. My specialty is using a variety of cut/color techniques, to create looks that are customized to each individual I see.
Silvena, Stylist & Extension Specialist
As a top graduate of my class over 10 years ago, I chose Geneva as the place where I wanted to develop my career. I’ve worked on 3rd street for a few years now and I love the community and my clients. Color and cuts are a natural strength of mine, and I’ve taken training to perform many varieties. Blow-dry styles / finishing looks are my “forte” and I really enjoy seeing my clients smile as they leave the salon.
Gabriela, Stylist & Makeup Artist
After 16yrs.+ of experience in the beauty industry, I find that an environment which is fun, passionate and team oriented is where I thrive the most. OS2 Salon has been the perfect place for me. I like to keep my clients looking and feeling great, by providing my personal unique expertise in all aspects of hair services. My strengths are in styling / up-dos and dry cutting. Hope to see you soon!
Being raised in the industry, hair and beauty have always been my passion. I enjoy the process of creating a “look” to expose a client’s confidence. Continuing my education is essential for me so that I am always able to deliver the latest styles and trends for my clients, but I also have a passion for traveling “back in time” to other eras for inspiration. Having worked in Geneva for the past 6 years, I have fallen in love with the community and I am glad that OS2 is the location that I have chosen in expanding my career.
Growing up around the beauty industry initiated my interest in cosmetology. At school, I worked hard to be the top graduate in my class. Since then, I've pushed myself to spend dedicated time developing specific skills (such as 2 years as a colorist) so that my technical abilities are well established. Looking ahead, I enjoy and am interested in the developing trends within the beauty industry. This is important to understand and deliver what clients will be wanting. What keeps me going the most, is that I love making my guest feel great about themselves and how they look when they leave my chair. While also giving them the knowledge to recreate their look at home.
Katie, Aveda Ambassador, Stylist & Makeup Artist
I entered the beauty industry about 5 years ago because I love the opportunity that it provides. It constantly evolves, which keeps me engaged learning new processes and techniques to use for clients. Who are also equally asking for each “new look”, or their own spin on it. Which, ultimately is what I enjoy the most. I love that I get the opportunity to help make people feel great about themselves by creating a look they love. My skills are rounded with all areas of cuts, color and styling. Balayage may be a favorite color technique, but I do really enjoy all areas.
Mariah, Stylist & Makeup Artist
Entering the beauty industry was an early passion of mine, and I’m thankful I was able to get a start while only in high school! When I begin with a new client, I intentionally place a lot of emphasis on the consultation. I want to make sure clients leave feeling their best, confident in their new look, so it’s critical I fully understand exactly what they are looking for. Throughout the appointment, I also like to ensure clients understand what their day-to-day needs are and how to maintain their look while at home. As for my areas of emphasis, I do enjoy a little bit of everything (makeup too!). But I most enjoy creating new on-trend looks. It’s what keeps me engaged, and I believe what keeps client’s equally interested in new or changing interests.
Nicole, Stylist & Makeup Artist
My passion for all things beauty started when I was young, teaching myself first to do various kinds of fun braids and then makeup. Since, I’ve always enjoyed staying on current trends and having fun with fashionable colors. This translated directly into my cosmetology interests. I enjoy performing on-trend hair styles and colors, especially fashion colors for those brave enough! Up-dos and advanced styling are one of my strengths as well. Ultimately, I really enjoy making people feel happy and confident by helping them achieve their hair dreams and I’ll do whatever I can to make that happen.
I fell in love with the beauty industry while in High School, and I'm thankful to have realized that at a young age. Completing cosmetology school while still in High School, allowed me to start my career much earlier than most. Since then, I've learned several offerings of cosmetology, but I've come to really enjoy creative / fashionable colors that allow me to flex my creative skills a bit. The constant change of trends is what continues to inspire me and drives ongoing interest in development / education.
Meghan, Stylist & Makeup Artist
All things beauty have been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. It started with fashionable and costume related makeup, always have been self-taught, and then grew into “the full look” with hairstyles and hair color. In cosmetology, I’m proud to say I was the first to graduate from my class! My favorite client services are when we do transformations, going for that fresh new look that really inspires and refreshes a clients confidence. Vibrant color are also something I love, and getting to put my own creative spin on everything. In the end it’s all about helping clients keep their current or new look at home, so I try to educate them on the full process including styling how-to and the products I use on them.
