    Doreen Nionakis

    Years of experience: 30

    Special Awards or Accreditations: Redken Certified colorist; Redken specialist and master specialist; Eufora Elite team member; Eufora Chapter lead; Certified Kadus Colorist

    Favorite Service: My favorite service IS the complete service from the greeting/consultation, design work with color and or hairstyle, product recommendation for SUCCESSFUL home styling and care, having a guest come back and love what I did before, and the assurance to the guest if they have questions or challenges that we are available to answer them.

    Area of Expertise: I ALWAYS try to polish my skills in all areas. I have done this for many years, BUT there is always something to learn. I think it is alot of fun to have a guest give me the liberty to create the perfect look for them. If I have to pick one though, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE color!!

    Favorite Product: The Hero line by Eufora. I also really enjoy working with all products in the Brocato line because there is something for everyone and all hair types.

    About Me: I have always wanted to "DO HAIR", but over the years I have come to truly understand that as a stylist we are so much more than "just a hairdresser". The power of the human touch is so powerful, and sometimes for some guests we are the only person that touches them. There is also a delicate balance when dealing with someone's self image, it is what they see when they look in the mirror, how they project themselves to the world, and how other people see them. It is up to us as professionals to fulfill those needs of our guests.

    Years of experience: 9

    Special Awards or Accreditations: Reflexology, manual lymph drainage, Hawaiian Lomi Lomi, and Thia Massage.

    Favorite Service: My favorite service would have to be the Image Peels. All of them!! They produce beautiful results including evening skin coloration, tightening and toning. They have every type of peel available for all needs from sensitive skin and rosacea to more aggressive anti-aging peels.

    Area of Expertise: Because of my years in this industry I have had time to broaden my range of skills. One of the things I like to emphasize is client knowledge of their own skin. Empowering the client to be comfortable and confident that they can maintain a customized routine at home to keep their skin looking and feeling beautiful.

    Favorite Product: It is very hard to pick just one product as my favorite, but my favorite product line in Image would be the Iluma Line. Each product has a purpose and all the products synchronize together to give maximum results.

    About Me: My career in this industry started at the age of 15 years old, when my mother opened up a spa. I come from a family of Estheticians and Massage Therapists, which has been so helpful and has molded me into the therapist I am today. I am very detail oriented and I want each client to have a good understanding of their treatments and home care regimen so they can maintain what we do here at the salon. Being from Florida I am an outdoors beach girl at heart but I am embracing the mountains and soon to be cold weather.
