Annie Le - Owner / Full Specialist
I have been in the beauty industry for over 25 years with expertise in shellac nails, acrylic nails, gel nails, silk wrap, fiberglass nails, diamond dip, creative nail art, waxing and spa pedicures and manicures for both men and women. 

I started my career in New York and then California where I owned several upscale salons and won many accolades for my knowledge and talent. I am constantly learning all the newest techniques, so I can give my clients the best possible service. I am happy to help my clients with the most current and updated styles. My goal is to help all my clients with anything they need to make their nails healthy and beautiful. 
Benson – Hair Stylist
36 years in this industry and I still love what I do. I have been in the Palm Harbor area for 27 years, making it a beautiful place to live one head at a time. My specialties are color, highlighting, low-lights, and master haircuts. I am certified with 5 of the leading Keratin providers in the industry. I also excel in men’s hair shaping. 

I have a passion for short or curly haircuts for women as well. Early in my career, I was an educator/platform artist for Sebastian International, so I know the importance in keeping up with the latest techniques in color as well as haircutting. 

I listen to my clients to ensure that the result is what they desire. I offer FREE consultations and mini consults with each appointment.

I have 25 years’ experience in the hair industry. My career started in art and design. I was trained as a barber, but I now specialize in color formulation, foil highlights, master haircuts, and color corrections. I welcome men, women, and children to my chair. 

I am a perfectionist, so I pay close attention to detail. I love the hair industry so much that I even own my own salon for 6 years.

My clients' experience is very important to me, so I take the time to listen to what they want. I stay up-to-date with all the latest trends and techniques. Looking forward to making you look good.

Cara Scott - Hair Stylist
Hi my name is Cara, I pride myself on being a PHD (professional hair designer). Having 14 years in the industry, I take care of all hair needs by always taking your hair to its fullest potential with coloring, hair extensions, cutting or by changing the texture of your hair with keratin.

When a woman’s look is totally transformed and they exude feeling beautiful, just to know that I helped to play a role in that and let that feeling come to light is extremely gratifying. By attending hair-shows and continuing education classes, I stay very current with the industry and am always up-to-date on the latest trends and hair styles. Having a certification in Goldwell and Paul Mitchell, I am sure to find a color match that is perfect for your specific color needs.

I am a certified hair extension specialist, specializing in fusion extensions stand by strand. These extensions are extremely natural looking and comfortable. Hair is always precisely matched to your own
color, therefore no one can tell you have them. I only use keratin bonded extensions so no harsh glue or wax is ever used. The extension hair is “top-quality” and 100% human hair. They last 4-5 months, while
no harm is done to your natural hair.

I am also trained in global keratin treatments. After having this treatment done, the hair is left more manageable, more conditioned, frizz free and left silkier than ever before. With my great passion for hair and to display its full potential, I define myself as a mastered stylist.
