Ayonné (pronounced yon-nay), a philly native, has been doing hair since middle school, but has been officially a hairstylist since 2008. Because she grew up in the salon industry (her grandmothers on both sides were stylists and salon owners), Ayonné always knew that she wanted to be a stylist. At her first salon, she encountered a mentor that helped her to stop doubting herself and made her realize she could do anything she put her mind to. With her natural warmth and friendliness, it’s no surprise that she considers her biggest strength as a stylist to be listening to her client’s needs and concerns.
Angela loves being a member of the Hairs to You family. Besides her natural warmth and charm, she brings to the salon her extensive experience as a stylist, graduating from Empire Beauty School in 1997. Angela also worked on the sales side of the salon industry, and has an extraordinary knowledge of products and techniques because of that.
Though a stylist for many years, Angela is passionate about continuing her education and always eager to learn new techniques that can benefit her clients.
Angela loves the creative aspect of hair, in particular color…but enjoys regular haircuts and trims too. Her passion for hair has been life-long; she always knew she wanted to be a stylist. “I was always the sort of girl that, when I was asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, my first response was that I wanted to be a mother, and my second response was that I wanted to do hair.”
Angela specializes in all types of color services, as well as cuts and styles. Angela also does makeup and airbrush tanning. Angela is married, has a baby girl, two cats, is very into fashion, and loves to read.
Paola (Pronounced either the Italian way Pow-la or the English way Paw-la) has been a hairstylist since 2001, graduating from the Jean Madeline school. She is also a licensed Esthetician since 1997. Paola has ample experience with hair care, and has worked on the main line extensively. What attracted her to Hairs To You is the personal and intimate atmosphere and the clientele it attracts. Among her strengths, Paola is excellent with all types of haircutting, and she gives fantastic blow outs! Paola is a wonderful listener and her warm and calming nature puts anyone around her at ease. Paola has two beautiful children, which makes her great at cutting children's hair as well. Paola specializes in skin care, hair cutting, coloring, and styling.
Ayonné was attracted to Hairs To You because of the warm and welcoming atmosphere, and she looks forward to starting a new chapter in her career with clients both old and new. Among other things, she specializes in fabulous bobs, dimensional coloring, and spectacular blow outs. Ayonné loves to bowl, go to the movies, do special effect makeup, and to spread joy by making people feel good about themselves and giving something back. Her motto is to live life to the fullest, learn everything she can, and stay humble!
Paige is a dynamic stylist who always has had interest in hair. Even in school, she was known as the girl who enjoyed constantly changing up her hair, especially with updos. And before that, she remembers playing with Barbies, saying "I just wanted to style their hair...and then I was done with them."
Paige and her husband Steve bought Hairs To You from the previous owner in 2008. She made numerous changes including a new location and decor, while maintaining the familiarity and intimacy of the salon, as well as the superior customer service that Hairs To You clients have appreciated for years. To Paige and Steve, the most important thing in the salon is making the client look and feel amazing. "We want our clients to know how much we appreciate them. So many businesses today have no idea what customer service means, and we want to change that. Not only do we have complete confidence that our staff are amazingly talented and will ensure that the client is thrilled with their service, but we know the client will leave with a smile on his/her face because they were given that service with respect, care, and always a little bit of playfulness!"
A Southern girl (with the warm personality and easy going nature to match), Paige attended Griffin Technical college in Griffin, Georgia. She graduated in 2005, but started doing hair even before graduating for weddings. Paige began her career in Georgia before moving north to the Philadelphia area in 2006.
Paige's absolute favorite part of the industry is weddings. Besides being extremely passionate about updos- especially those with a vintage or retro flair- Paige is a makeup artist as well, specializing in both traditional and airbrush application, and she is a founding beauty guide with LimeLight by Alcone. Paige is bilingual in American Sign Language, and welcomes deaf and hard of hearing clients in the salon. Paige has a strong commitment to continuing education, and is always seeking to learn new things in order to be the best style asset she can to her clients.
