Being a good listener is my job. You are my focus… from the moment my clients sit in my chair and begin to tell me what they love or don’t love about their current color/cut, through the things happening in their life at the moment. I have learned in the ten years I have been behind the chair that being a good listener is what makes you a great hairstylist. I sincerely adore my clients and want each one of them to leave knowing so. I do hair with my heart and always want that to show in my work. The extraordinary team of talented women I am so very fortunate to have at blo all share the same compassion for their clients as I do.

My journey as a hairstylist began at a young age by learning how to tame my curly hair. This drove me to the never-ending search for products and the perfect haircut for my curls. I started my professional development with Gary Manuel Aveda Institute in Seattle WA. While in school I developed my passion for color and cuts. Over the last 6 years I have honed my skills and extended my knowledge into curly and textured hair types. Developing my skills and continuing education I can comfortably and knowledgeably take on any hair texture successfully. At the end of 2018 I transitioned into small business ownership with Heartspark Hair & Co. I am committed to educating my clients and to responsibly care for your hair. As a stylist my goal is to work together and communicate to deliver the best possible results.

Hi. My name is Michelle and thank you for wanting to learn more about me! I am a wife to an awesome husband named Shawn. Together we have a blended family of 5 kids who keep us on our toes. We also have a love for animals, including our two dogs and two cats. One day I will have a pair of Irish Donkeys! Being a hair stylist was a calling I began 24 years ago, and during those years I have received several color and design certifications including classes in New York with Bumble and Bumble. I have done the avant-garde creative print hair, as well as a New York Fashion Week. I have built 3 salons and owned my last one for nearly 10 years. After owning for over a decade, I’m looking forward to relaxing and taking time for some hobbies while working with the great team at Blo Hair Lounge. In my spare time, one can find me doing yoga, reading or working in my garden. I love my job and what I do. One of the best parts of my job is meeting new people and seeing the relationships I have built with my clients. I believe a great service starts off with a good consultation and I like breaking down exactly what it is you are aspiring for all the while offering industry proving pros and cons to match facial structure and highlighting one's strengths. Everyone is beautiful in their own way and I love bringing out your natural beauty. I look forward to meeting you. See you soon.

Hi there! I’m Erica, a wife and mom of two little boys who keep me on my toes! I have a serious love of travel and love having a trip planned on the horizon to look forward to. I consider myself an extroverted introvert, I love having that one on one connection with my clients and then recharging with me time, a quiet room and book. Everyone should have known that doing hair was my path and passion since I refused to let anyone do my hair from 4 years on and I taught myself to braid hair on my dolls and ponies. I’ve been in the industry and self-employed for over 15 years, I have been fortunate to have had many opportunities to expand my knowledge and skills with continuing educations as well as working as an Artist Educator for Pureology. I’m truly thankful that I get to do what I love as my career. I love the relationships I have developed as a result of the wonderful conversations had, stories told and experiences shared in my salon chair and feel blessed that this is my life. My focus is on creating beautiful hair for my clients while maintaining it’s integrity. I believe in the importance of sharing my professional knowledge so that they have the skills, products and tools they need to style their hair. I want them to feel beautiful every day, not just when they leave my chair and the salon.

My name is Gina Pender and I have been in the beauty industry for over 11 years. As a fully certified aesthetician, eyelash extension trainer, skin care expert and make-up artist I find true passion in transforming my client's beauty goals thru personalized services and treatments. From a very early age, I had always been intrigued with beauty and finding different ways to combine art and technique to accomplish a desired goal. Throughout my career I have been able to use my skill-set helping women in beauty pageants, celebrity make-overs, fitness competitions, preparing for their wedding, a night out on the town, or just a new desired style or look. It is my firm belief that one of the biggest investments in life is taking care of yourself. When you are happy externally it helps bring self- confidence in your day to day life. It's that self-confidence and external glow that helps feed a desired happiness and balance. It is my job to pamper my clients and ensure when they are with me they are my 100% focus. As a mother of a young daughter and a wife that works full-time I want to provide an experience for my clients that I would want myself.
Prior to the beauty industry I had spent numerous years working in business as a manager for a major corporation. This background taught me the importance of hard work, business acumen, professionalism, how to build your own successful business and the true importance of phenomenal customer service. Whether you are my client, student or just needing a consultation my focus and attention will be around your desired results and goals. I truly look forward to our connection in the near future.
