Eyelash Extension Technician
I am a trained eyelash extension technician, and have been working with clients for seven years to help them achieve their ideal look. I’ve worked in Utah, Oklahoma, and now Michigan with clients from various ages, ethnicity, and with unique medical conditions. I create a “traditional” lash extension look with a personal preference of an enhanced natural style by consulting with my clients to discover, together, their perfect length and look. I’m proud to say that I am a perfectionist, and give my total attention to detail. Your lashes will be beautiful!
I am a mama to three, and have a passion for travel, architecture, and good food. My husband supports my desire to help boost the confidence of those that I work with through this wonderful beauty enhancing service.
Shannon Pollitt, Licensed Clinical Massage Therapist
Shannon was born in Champaign-Urbana, IL and at the age of 12 she was diagnosed with Scoliosis. To help correct the Scoliosis, Shannon endured many years of wearing the Boston Brace. However, the pain only increased. Finally, at the age of 19 it was decided she would undergo a major surgery to correct the Scoliosis.
After the surgery and during rehabilitation Shannon came to understand how her muscles should be stretched and exercised to keep her body equalized. Thus, began her studies at Blue Heron Academy for Medical Massage Therapy. For years she has been treating patients with various muscular muscle tissue and the joint complex, she helps her clients with chronic conditions by stimulating physiological healing mechanisms related to inhibition of pain, remolding of connective tissues, restoration of normal range of motion, and a decrease in connective tissue inflammation. Today Shannon loves her job and looks forward in helping others feel healed and rejuvenated.
