Hi there! My name is Jaymee Elias. I am a September Virgo and Florida native. When I’m not at the salon, I am spending my time outdoors kayaking, hiking with my dog, or gardening!

I began my education at Paul Mitchell the School of Fort Myers in the fall of 2016. During my time in school I worked as a apprentice at a 5 star salon in the area. In the spring of 2017, I received my cosmetology license and began to work behind the chair.

All of the products I use are vegan, gluten free, and eco friendly. I specialize in hair extensions and coloring with integrity.

KIMBERLY - Level 4 Stylist

Hey everyone, I’m Kimberly! I was born in New Jersey and moved to sunny Florida in 2001 and have resided in the Bonita area since! My love for the beauty industry started when I was just a kid that would get into all the makeup I could get my hands on. Throughout high school I helped my friends get ready for homecoming and prom and I knew that it was the career I wanted to pursue.

I graduated from Paul Mitchell the School Fort Myers in 2015 and have been working behind the chair ever since! Nothing makes me happier than making the person in my chair feel as beautiful on the outside as they are on the inside. When I am not working, you can find me spending time with my husband and two beautiful daughters. My family is my absolute world and I cannot wait to have you become a part of my salon family!
