Artists and Staff
I have been in the salon industry for over 30 years – the last 27 cutting, styling, coloring and perming the world beautiful!
Being an Aveda trained stylist and owner of this salon has given me a great passion to continue with excitement in a field I love. I am 100% about Guest Satisfaction!!! Much of my work also includes giving back to the community, working with cancer patients, theater and local nonprofits.
Hiking Mt. Helena is my solace.
I received my initial massage certification through the Institute for Psycho-Structural Balancing in San Diego in 1987. I have continued my education in multiple massage modalities from Tuina to Thai Massage, Seitai Shiatsu, Trager, Myofascial work, Pre-Natal massage and Chi Nei Tsang (Taoist abdominal massage) including training in China.
I strive to assist individuals toward greater somatic awareness, ease of movement and expansive self expression. In 2011 I was voted Best Massage Therapist by the Independent Record’s Community Poll.
Originally from Lincoln, MT I entered the cosmetology profession directly from high school. I became a licensed Cosmetologist after graduating from Modern Beauty School in Missoula.
I am passionate about all aspects of my profession. Through Aveda’s continuing education I have received numerous certifications that allow me to offer a wide array of Aveda quality services to my clients.
Ashley Blanton gross
Ashley is a stylist who also offers pedicures, nails, waxing and facials. Blanton has been in the industry for seven years and attended the Salon Professional Academy in Great Falls. She was trained in Redken Color and Principle Base Design. Blanton returned to Helena recently from Wyoming and welcomes new and former clients!
I have been practicing massage therapy for 23 years. I have learned that self-care is the most important part of achieving true lasting wellness. A massage combined with an Aveda essential oil of your choosing along with breath awareness helps us to soften hard tension and release the pain and stress we hold in our bodies. Choosing massage therapy is most beneficial when caring for ourselves and others. It helps us achieve deep relaxation, pain relief, stillness and sense of well-being. I look forward to working with you.
