Talented Aveda Team

Kylie Gagnon

I’ve been creating beautiful color and great haircuts for 20 years now I graduated from BJS beauty and barber college and have worked in the Puyallup area ever since. Downtown Designs has been my home away from home for about 14 ½ years, and I’ve 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. So I guess you could say I Love everything I do!

 

Ashley Sallander

I got my license in 2003 and have been passionately doing hair and makeup ever since. I have experience doing weddings, photo shoots and special occasion hair and makeup. I have been lucky enough to be with AVEDA behind the chair at Downtown Designs since 2006, using responsibly sourced products that perform that are good for us and the environment. I believe beauty comes from within, and feeling great is supported by excellent personal care with natural products that are derived from plant and flower essences. I thoroughly enjoy utilizing all different types of hair cutting, coloring and texturizing techniques and services to give my guests a professional experience that makes them look and feel their best. I am so grateful I have been blessed working with unparalleled talent and incredibly beautiful people at Downtown Designs for the past 13 years and always look forward to growing my education and craft every day behind the chair. 

 

 

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 and briefly became an educator for KMS and a master nail technician for creative nail design. I have owned three salons. Two rental salons, and the current salon, Downtown Designs that is an Aveda Concept salon. I have been working with Aveda since 1998 and absolutely love their products and culture.

I no longer do nails but like to focus my passion toward all types of hair color. I also love to cut both with razor and shears and perform texture altering services like keratin treatments and perms. I strongly believe in continuing education and like to take classes as often as possible.
