Although being a Mom and wife is where her passion is, Joy also really enjoys all aspects of the Aesthetic world. “I’m such a people person and love getting to know my guests while doing wax services. I am also a care taker and getting people to relax during a facial is very rewarding for me!”

She grew up in Hawaii and at an early age her mother, a cosmetologist, introduced her to the industry and also Aveda products. Kadie has a busy family that she adores caring for full-time, however, she loves the peacefulness and creativity that doing nails gives her. “I love helping guests find a moment to relax while taking time to care for and beautify themselves.”
My passion for fine art and my love for the environment is the foundation of my hair artistry. From the southwest to the northwest I love to travel and spend time outdoors. I incorporate lessons I have learned from the road and nature’s beauty into my art. Inspired by elements of design I specialize in custom color, highlights and dimensional color, and precision cutting. Through all my creations I find that sharing love and compassion with people is the most rewarding experience of all.
