Chanse Palios Yancey, Stylist

Chanse is a licensed cosmetologist with a passion for friends, family and hair. Unofficially, her career began in high school: she dazzled her sisters and friends by doing their hair before dances and other events. After graduation, she attended the Gene Juarez Academy where she learned how to create unique looks using specialized

cutting techniques. During her 17-year career at Gene Juarez, Chanse stayed up-to-date with hair trends and new techniques. She loves working with hair of all lengths and doing style changes that reflect the client’s individuality. “I strive for unlimited creativity,” she says, “and my highest priority is listening to my clients' needs.” When she’s not styling hair, Chanse enjoys spending time with her husband Justin, their two children and the family cat.

Carla Novelozo, Stylist/Colorist

Carla is a licensed cosmetologist with an extensive background in specialty hair coloring and design. She first acquired her skills in 1985 (although there are rumors of men's perm dating back to the early 80's), and completed an extensive program focused on color education in 1991.

Her passion for making others look good and feel great has kept Carla in the cosmetology field for over 25 years with 14 of those years in the Kenmore area. And she has her family to thank for pushing her toward this profession. "My mom and aunt still work behind the chair after 45 years," Carla says. "Beauty is in our gene pool." Carla keeps her hair coloring and design skills up-to-date by regularly attending continuing education classes.

long-term dedication of her clientele. In fact, some of her clients have been with her since she began working in the Kenmore area 16 years ago! "I work hard for a positive end result," she says, "because each service has my name on it." Carol lives with Tim, her husband of 22 years, and her adorable cat Abbey.

Nancy was born and raised in the Kenmore area. After attending Western Washington University, she completed the cosmetology program at Shoreline Community College. Over the course of her 24-year career, she has attended many continuing education classes throughout the U.S. Cosmetology isn't just a

profession to Nancy. As her easy laughter indicates, it's also a way for her to have fun. She credits her clients for teaching her something new every day. "I love my clients because they help me grow as a person," she says. "Each one is different with unique experiences to share. I learn so much from them!" Outside the salon, Nancy is a beginning golfer who enjoys scenic drives around the state and game nights with friends.
