Melissa Avila, owner and esthetician
I moved from Oregon to Seattle in 1992 with the intention of attending the Art Institute of Seattle. On a whim I ended up enrolling in The Paul Mitchell Academy of Cosmetology and graduated from their Esthetic program in 1993. From there I worked for a small skincare clinic in Bellevue where I learned a great deal from the owner. I took that knowledge and in 1994 was hired on at Gene Juarez Salons where I worked until 2004. I also attended Blanche MacDonald School for Film and Television Special FX Makeup in Vancouver, B.C and graduated in 2003. After graduating from Makeup school and working for a corporation for 10 years I decided that it was time for me to go out on my own. I love the career I have chosen and wouldn’t trade my experiences from my past employers for anything, I learned a lot and it has helped me become the business owner that I am today.
My name is Olivia and I grew up in the Olympia, Washington area. I competitively wrestled for four years in High School as well as Competitive Cheer. I have a cute little Maltipoo born in the Fall of 2023 named Blizten.
My Esthetics training was at the Stratum Institute in Lakewood, WA and I graduated in July of 2023. I grew up in the salon environment since my mom is a cosmetologist. I love waxing and I also want to help educate men and women of all skin tones about skin health and the benefits of facials.
