Talented Aveda Team

Kylie Gagnon

I have been creating beautiful hair color, and great haircuts for over 20 years now.  I graduated from BJS Beauty and barber college in 1997 and I have worked in the Puyallup area ever since. Downtown Designs has been my home away from home since 2004, and I have been lucky enough to keep learning and working with Aveda. I would have to say that color is my favorite service, but I also enjoy cutting, styling, waxing, and perming. I guess you could say I Love everything I do!


Kelly Huseby

I have been a hair designer, esthetician, and nail artist since 1985, and have been working behind the chair ever since. I have always been interested in education. I briefly became an educator for KMS and a master nail technician for creative nail design. I have been a salon owner since 1989 and have owned this salon since 1997. I have been exclusively working with Aveda since 1998 and I absolutely love their products, culture, and education. My ongoing relationship with Aveda allows me to be creative, while still caring for my guests and the earth.   

I have a true passion for all types of hair color, foiling, balayage etc. I love doing haircuts with shears, razor and clippers. I also like to perform texture altering services like keratin treatments and perms. I am also VoMor certified in both tape in and hand tied (sew in) hair extensions services. I strongly believe in continuing education and like to take classes as often as possible.



Downtown Designs

It was a true labor of love. We bought this building in 1996. It was originally built in 1898-1900. When we purchased it many of the original fixtures were in place and it had not ever been fully renovated. My husband Scott, an electrician by trade along with friends and colleagues, spent a year tearing it down to the studs and installing a foundation.  We updated the plumbing and electrical systems as well. We then turned it into a Hair studio nail salon and tanning. We have since concentrated our talents on haircare. We opened our doors on August 25th , 1997, and we have been happily grooming in the Puyallup Valley ever since. Downtown Design is an Aveda Concept salon.
