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 Stylist
With 20+ 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 15+ 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 15 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.
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.

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 various blonding 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.
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.
Since childhood I have had a love for all things beauty. What matters most to me is helping clients feel comfortable in their own skin by providing them the special look they are going for. My passion are color services, with a special interest in fashion colors. Color trends are constantly changing and I love that, and keeping up with the latest looks. When I work with clients, it’s important that I help them understand why I’m using specific stylist products so they understand how they can get the same benefit at home.
Becoming a licensed cosmetologist was never question in my mind. Being a hair stylist runs in my family, so I knew from a very young age that this was the profession that I wanted to pursue. Graduating high school, while also graduating cosmetology school helped me start my career very early on. I enjoy color services the most but also have great interest in blow dry styles and up-do styles. This industry is just another form of art, in which we get the chance to be creative while making our clients happy and smile by the end of their appointment. Which to me is the best reward of being a hairstylist.
