Michelle

Owner/Operations Leader

Hello, I am Licensed Cosmetologist with over 19 years of experience. I was born in Florida then raised in North Carolina and moved to Virginia. I graduated from Gloucester High School in 2002 where I received my cosmetology license. I began my journey as a hairstylist in 2000 at a local salon and soon after moved up to management. I stayed in the "chain" typed salons for @13 Years before the door opened for me to venture out in the small business world and have my own salon where I could make my clients feel they have had a more relaxing experience. I enjoy doing what I love everyday and building long lasting relationships with my clients. I specialize in creative coloring, haircuts, styles, waxing, perms, straighteners, relaxers, lash lift and tints, and Permanent Make-Up. I am experienced all types hair. I am also a Licensed Massage Therapist, Licensed Permanent Make-up Artist, as well as a lash lift and tint specialist. Continuing salon education is a major part of my business. Providing guests with the most current styles, making people feel wonderful, and treating customers like family is #1 at Blown Away.

Inventory Specialist

I grew up in Newport News, Va. I began in the beauty industry doing nails for a couple of years and decided I love doing hair and would rather do that full-time. I have been doing hair now since 2007. I began at a local salon and it was a great experience. I was a salon leader there for a couple of years before I decided it was time to venture off to Blown Away. I have one daughter, Luna Marie. She is my little angel. I specialize in creative coloring, haircuts, styles, waxing, perms, straighteners, and relaxers. I enjoy doing special occasion styles and have amazing skills at braiding also.

Tina

Salon Leader

Hi! I am a Licensed Cosmetologist with over 20 years experience. I am originally from Ontonagaon, Michigan. I have lived in Gloucester with my 3 teenage boys for over 6 years now. I am a beach girl at heart and love living in the Hampton Roads. I love my career in the hair industry. There is nothing more satisfying to me than to provide a client with the haircut or chemical service of their choice and have them look in the mirror when we are finished and love the transformation. To make others feel good about themselves is what has kept me in the industry and is what makes me want to continue to strive for my best. I believe any service must begin with a good consult. Great communication is the key to happy clients and successful visits. I am proud and excited to be a part of the Blown Away team. I look forward to meeting you and giving you the hair you want and deserve!
