In the beauty industry, I have had my hands in all of it. I began my journey by attending the Capital Region Career & Technical school from 2003-2004 for Cosmetology. In addition to committing myself to salon life, I have 11 years of working in the Plastic Surgery field. During my time spent in plastics, I developed an in depth understanding of the aesthetic side of the human body and all it's shapes, sizes and forms. While working a full time job, I began taking night classes at Paul Mitchell the School Schenectady in 2009 where I obtained my New York State Cosmetology License. In the plastic surgery field, I received training in medical grade skin care, laser face and body treatments, makeup and everything in between. I then ventured into the salon world starting out as a hair stylist, but after a short time, realized this was not my calling. I then transitioned into becoming a Nail Technician in 2010 and became certified in spray tanning. I have always had a dream to own my own salon and a passion to push myself to do bigger and better. I am so thankful and proud to share Palms Tanning & Lacquer Lounge with you.
