Stephanie became a hairstylist because of Salon Arabella.  She started as Julie's client when the salon opened her senior year at Carson High School.  She was still struggling to decide what to do after graduation, when the owners suggested cosmetology.  She loved hair/makeup/skincare and the salon atmosphere and went to Pinnacle Institute of Cosmetology the fall after graduation.  She loves making other people happy and next to God, her family, and church, hair is her top passion because it's more than just hair to her.  It's seeing the smile on a clients face looking in the mirror after a color correction.  It's giving a high-school student their confidence back when she finishes their makeup for prom.  It's being able to give her client's a little escape from the stresses of everyday life and giving her client a style they're comfortable and confident in achieving everyday at home.  She looks forward to meting you in her chair.
