Heather Newman - Level 3
Owner/ Hair Artist/ Nail Artist
I have worked in the industry since 2006 and absolutely love it! the variety of the industry is my favorite part: hair, nails and facial waxing services make for an interesting day everyday . i get to experience the best of both worlds: the fun upbeat creative side in the salon along with the relaxing therapeutic side in the spa during manicures and pedicures. The hair industry is always changing therefore staying up to date on education with the latest techniques and products is a must! I love the challenge of formulating the perfect color for every guest that sits in my chair. I enjoy turning blondes out along with adding depth and additional tones when needed. Running my own business has always been a dream of mine and it is a ton of work but so rewarding and worth it! They say if you love what you do, you never work a day of your life!
