Haylee Thomas {Stylist}

Born in Gravette, Arkansas, raised in Bentonville by the most supportive and positive parents, I have been obsessed with all things “beauty” from a very young age, always fashioning the next best trend. I am full of life and strive to make my clients feel comfortable in my chair. The most rewarding thing is making a client feel confident; in my eye that is true beauty. I graduated from the honors program at Paul Mitchell the School Arkansas with the best education I could desire- learning from the greatest instructors Arkansas has to offer. Not only teaching cut, color, texture, and makeup, but they also shaped me into a better person. My favorite things include makeup, sombres, grey coverage, and textured cuts and styles. I am constantly learning about new things in makeup and hair, so in my free time, you can catch me with a pair of headphones on listening to a playlist of explicit rap music and surfing the web for the next on trend style. My obsession with YouTube makeup tutorials has turned into a true addiction. Fashion is one of my hobbies in life. I love to play with all the textures, colors, and styles that clothing has to offer; I love modernizing a vintage piece. My faith, family, and friends are my heart and soul; their love and support is what fuels my innovative, positive, and driven personality. My goal is to make you comfortable, confident, and stunning; so come and see me!

Cody Scoles {Stylist}

I am a born and raised Arkansas native and graduated from Rogers High School. I attended the Career Academy of Hair Design in Rogers Arkansas. I love to spend time with my fiance, son, and fur babies. I have two great danes, and a chiweenie. Country concerts are my absolute favorite. I've wanted to become a hairstylist to create beauty in everyone! I specialize in color, especially balayage. However, I also love doing haircuts as well. I'm super chill and down-to-earth and would love for you to come see me!

Breanna Berkshire {Salon Manager and Stylist}

Hi, I'm Breanna, or Bre for short! I was born and raised in Rogers, Arkansas but lived in Wisconsin for ten years. I moved back to Northwest Arkansas when I was fifteen and graduated from Rogers High School. I enrolled in Paul Mitchell the School Arkansas in 2014 and graduated in April of 2016. Paul Mitchell taught me so much about not only cosmetology, but how to be a great person and to grow every single day. I have a husband, Jared, three fur babies (Kaya,Kota, and Hunter), and a baby on the way! It's a crazy, fun life. I have wanted to be a hair stylist my entire life and I am so blessed to be in such an amazing salon with amazing and talented girls! I specialize in color and styling. I love me some braids! I love to create and bring out the confidence that every person deserves to have.

Melissa Vongvone {Stylist}

Hi, I'm Melissa!! I was born and raised in Northwest Arkansas, and graduated high school from Har-Ber High School in Springdale. I am a newlywed as of September 2016 and have four awesome fur babies. Fitness is very important to me, and my husband and I are very into Crossfit. I started cosmetology school in 2014 at Paul Mitchell the School Arkansas and absolutely loved it. I would consider my specialties to be men's cuts, perms, and highlights. I wanted to become a hair stylist because I love making people feel beautiful and I have been interested in the industry since I was a little girl!
