Tom has been working with Aveda, shaping eyebrows and making faces since 1999. Sometimes called “the brow whisperer” by colleagues, he can tame the most stubborn unruly brows using Aveda Relaxing Waxing Techniques to improve your comfort level and reduce irritation. A finish with refrigerated massage stones is a customer favorite! He also provides brow and lash tinting services, and skincare and makeup consultation/application.

Outside of the salon, one of Tom’s passions is photography. You might notice photographs on our social pages that he has taken for us!
Yolie is a master of making faces in any situation. Her passion has led to working with the Aveda Makeup team at New York Fashion week and as an Aveda Freelance Advisor.

She also offers a full array of other esthetics services, such as facials and all manner of waxing!
