OWNER/ARTIST

Originally from Long Island New York Lisa has always had a passion for Art and Creativity. Beginning at the young age of 5 Lisa has developed a love for oil, and pastel coloring, and drawing with her favorite charcoal and a stump for blending still life’s and Abstract images. Capturing an expression in a drawing is her goal. Ask to see some of her work it’s in the Salon. After Art Club, modeling, and Fine Arts in College, Lisa moved on to Sales and Marketing for 8 years with Benco Dental helping Doctors build and grow their businesses. Along with product, and procedural knowledge she exceeded within her company building a million dollar territory as an Account Executive in Eastern Long Island NY. Lisa moved to charlotte NC in 2004 to be closer to her family leaving benco dental and starting a new life and career in NC. Lisa then took her mother’s advice, and graduated with honors from Stanly Community College of Cosmetology in 2005 (she went to school with Kelly Pickler)! Lisa has always had the dream of opening her own salon where everyone can feel right at home. So there is no doubt Lisa goes for it all the way and now has a very successful salon and spa in Waxhaw NC. Reaching all of her goals so far in life Lisa wants to share her knowledge of her craft and the wonderful beautiful industry she calls “fun”.

HAIRSTYLIST

Hey I’m Matthew! I have been involved with the beauty industry since I was 14 years old. I started off my career journey here in Waxhaw, by becoming a makeup artist. Throughout years I found my life’s passion, doing hair. Now every day I go to work to make people feel great about themselves, it thrills me! It makes my soul shine when I can cut someone’s hair or change their outlook and boost their self-esteem. Runways and fashion shows are fun, but I could not imagine myself doing anything other than what I am doing right now. Working with people one on one to help fulfill their dreams.

I am a graduate of Continental School of Beauty in New York. Growing up I always loved art and hair-styling, from there my passion for cosmetology took off! With an eye for creative hair-styling, I specialize in updos as well as helping you create your everyday styles while in my chair. I love getting to know and understanding the personalities and lifestyles of my clients. This is key when working with my clients to create the best looks and styles for each individual.
