What do you like about being the owner of Elle & Company?

 

I I love being able to have the space for stylist to feel comfortable to express their artistic visions and make clients feel beautiful. I am so grateful to have such a gorgeous location on the water where clients can come and be pampered.

What inspires you?

 

My inspiration comes from the peace I feel when creating. I love taking on new challenges with hair, it feels almost serene when you have that finished product.

What's your favorite product and why?

 

If I have to choose one product I would say Phomollient, it is super lightweight but gives you just enough volume with the slightest amount of hold. I use it on the majority of my clients.

Being able to make my clients feel beautiful and confident.  My favorite is when I get to use my creative talents and give a client a new look that they would never have thought of and they love it, priceless.

 

What is your favorite product and why?

 

I love all Aveda products but if I have to name one it would be “Dry Remedy” shampoo and conditioner, it leaves the hair hydrated, shiny and silky.  I also love “Pure Abundance” style-prep, it infuses hair with all-day weightless volume.

Stephanie Marie, Stylist

Five words that most describe you?  

 

Determined, Spirited, Easy going, Confident & Passionate 

 

What do you like most about being a stylist? 

I love to refer to stylists as day makers. Going through the Aveda Institute thats what we were referred as which really stuck with me. I love being a stylist because creating each guests hair to be their very own makes their day which in turn makes my day!

I love to take on little road trips with my puppers looking for new fun adventures. Finding fun hikes, seeing new places and appreciating the little things in life. 

 

What inspires you?

People inspire me, I love meeting and communicating with each new guest to create a fun outcome that they will love. Every person is different and I love to make people feel beautiful. 

 

Whats your favorite product and why? 

My most recent favorite has got to be the Dry Remedy Oil, being based mostly in Arizona & Utah its dry!! I love to run a couple drops through the ends on second (or third) day hair to make it come back to life!
