Three is the charm; meet Nayna, Yahaira and Kim!

Hello my name is Naynaand I was born and raised in Reno. I graduated as a full cosmetologist from Milan just this last October and started my apprenticeship program the same week. I want to grow and learn more about hair and makeup because it is my passion. I love to do all of it but the reason I first started school was my love for makeup, hairstyling, and color.          

I got to follow my passion with the support of my family and friends. I assist Dean and Risa right now and am extending my learnings every day. I have a bubbly personality so TresImage is the perfect fit for me thanks to the warm and positive atmosphere. I hope to continue to learn and grow more as the year continues.  And, what’s great is that May 1st I’ll be taking my own clients!

Hello my name is Yahaira and I was born in El Paso, Texas but I was raised right here in Reno! I have a huge family which consists of 4 sisters and 1 brother. My family means everything to me. I have a boyfriend named Tyler and we have a Brittany spaniel named copper. Having a big family is truly a blessing; everyone has so much love to give.

I was in school at Paul Mitchell the school of Reno for almost two years and have my full cosmetology license. I currently am a nail technician at TresImage salon and I specialize in both acrylic and hard gel which not many people do. I also enjoy doing spa manicures, spa pedicures, and gel polish manicures.  I enjoy what I do so much; my favorite thing about my job is making people feel good. I might be a new member of TresImage but here everyone treats you like family and I truly love that.

Hi! My name is Kim and I’m a new stylist at TresImage. 

My creative career began as a graphic designer, but as commercial art became more digital and less hands-on, I decided to make a change. Hairstyling has always been a love of mine – in fact during my time in art school I cut and styled hair for many of my fellow students! So when an opportunity arose for me to change careers, I decided to attend Paul Mitchell School. It was the best decision I ever made. It turns out that my first and second career choices are very much aligned, and I love using my artistic eye to create beautiful hair that makes people feel great about themselves.

My passion is showcasing a client’s natural hair color and texture with the right cut. I also love enhancing color and working with the client’s styling preferences to create beautiful hair that is easy to style at home.  I feel like I’ve used my experience in art and design to do great things when someone leaves my chair smiling and saying “I love it!”.

On my days off, you’ll find me outside. I love hiking, camping, rock climbing and biking with friends and family. I spend my quieter time doing yoga, reading, drawing, or making pottery at a local studio. 

If you’re looking for a men’s cut, women’s cut, color, special occasion style, or a great cut for your kids, I’d love to create beautiful hair for you!

Meet Zak and Keysha!

Zak Campbell, Stylist

Hair has been in my life since I can remember. As a child, I would sit in my mom’s salon every day during the summertime which allowed me a first-hand look at the art involved in cutting hair. My mom always inspired me with her creativity, resulting in my passion for cutting and styling hair. After working many unfulfilling jobs, I decided to follow in my mom’s footsteps and pursue a career in hair. 

After graduating from the Paul Mitchell School, I was offered an opportunity to become an instructor and cutting specialist at the school. Since working at the Paul Mitchell School for the past two years, I reopened the barber shop at the VA Hospital in Reno where I spend most of my days off. 

Through connecting with inspiring hair stylists, I had to pleasure of meeting Risa, the owner of TresImage, and now have the amazing opportunity of working in her salon. At TresImage, I am able to be creative and inspired every day.

Keysha, Guest Services

Hello my name is Keysha and I’m the Receptionist on Saturdays at TresImage.

I have been living in Reno for about a year and a half now and I’ve been working here since July of 2018. I am a Nevada Licensed Aesthetician but am not currently working as one, I still however am working in a salon and surrounded by creative people in the industry!

Being one of the receptionists here means that I’m the first person every client sees when they enter the salon, I’m very friendly so making sure that the clients are greeted and feel welcomed is my job!

Working in an environment where the purpose is to make people feel good about themselves is truly an amazing opportunity and I look forward to every Saturday!

Introducing Serena and Leslie

Hi I’m, Serena Mulock

I have been at Tres Image for 2 Years. I was a regular client before that and knew that this was the salon that I wanted to be at. I am a licensed cosmetologist focusing on natural length nails.

I am a third generation Nevadan, with a brief hiatus in Oregon. However, there truly is no place like home. My decision to enter the beauty field came later in life, after some life situations that made me re-evaluate my life. I had been in the food industry up to that point for 35+ years and was very comfortable in it. Continually through my life I still found myself drawn with fascination to the beauty field. So, after much encouragement, I decided it was time to follow that other dream. I have been truly glad that I did.

Learning is a constant for me. Whether it is reading, watching videos or attending classes to learn how to better improve myself or how to learn something new. My husband and my family are my biggest supporters and we enjoy spending time together, whether its just hanging out or exploring. Other things I enjoy doing in my free time, is having a cup of coffee or a glass of wine with friends, doing some type of crafting, or spending time in the kitchen baking up a batch of something to share with others.

When it comes to my time in the salon, I have found that pedicures are a passion for me. We spend so much time on our feet and give so little thought and care to them. So, when a client takes the time to do self-care of their feet, I want to help them truly enjoy it and do my best.

I focus on Natural Length nails which includes services not only for the pedicure services, but also for natural nail manicures and gel polish manicures.

One of the newer services that I offer, that is fast becoming popular, is Powder Coating (also known as Dipping) for natural length nails. For those who want something a little stronger and more durable than gel polish, this is a great step up.

With all my nail services I enjoy seeing the decisions that my clients choose when picking their designs, colors etc.  I look forward to seeing what you come up with and how I can help you with your self-care.

Hello my name is Leslie and I was born and raised right here in Reno! In 2011 I graduated from UNR with my Bachelor’s degree in communications and graduated June of this year from Paul Mitchell the school Reno as a full Cosmo. I’m new on the scene here at Tresimage but I’ve loved every minute of it! My concentration is hair cutting and color but I also do special occasion hair and make-up as well. 

I decided to make the change from my office job to pursue my passion with hair and have never looked back. It is truly a blessing to be able to come to work and look forward to the day and its challenges. I love the opportunity to be creative and get to know my clients which is my favorite part of the job! There is no better feeling than to have someone leave my chair with a renewed sense of confidence so come in and see me, I would love the opportunity to help you reach your hair goals!

Get to know Caitlin & Zoe!

Hi, I’m Caitlin

I have been a nail technician for about 4 years now. I graduated from Marinello School of Beauty. I joined TresImage Salon around July of 2015.

I love being in the salon because I enjoy loving my job. I always say to my clients (especially my youngest ones) that it’s important to do something that makes you happy in life. Especially a job you plan to work in for the rest of your life! I look forward to everyday I am in the salon with my coworkers and wonderful clients.

 In the salon, it makes my day brighter knowing I’ve made other people feel better; even if it’s just with a natural manicure, soaking up a relaxing pedicure, a fun gel polish manicure, or strengthening their nails with UV gel or acrylics, and I’m always trying to help clients show their wild side with a splash of color or glitter.

I offer natural manicures, UV gel enhancements, pedicures, and gel polish manicure services. I also offer acrylic services, but only to clients who are referred by my existing clientele, or have an allergy to gels. I am allergic to acrylic, so this service is limited availability. I am available in the salon Wednesday through Sunday. When I’m not in the salon I’m usually at my other job, or taking care of my younger siblings and family.

Hi, I’m Zoë and I am currently a hairstylist at TresImage Salon!

I’ve been in the industry for over a year now and have loved every second of it. Through the ups and downs it’s been a constant chance to grow and learn.

What spurred me to join this industry was when I was overseas in Japan. My friend Maya and I loved to get into innocent trouble and snuck into a Japanese hospital on a university campus in the bustling city of Tokyo. Inside this hospital, was a little salon inside the bottom floor, it completely blew my mind, and gave me the strong urge to help people by helping them to feel and look their best, even when maybe they don’t feel it because life threw them a curve ball.

Through my adventures I have learned a profound love for people from all backgrounds, it’s helped me to learn to understand others on another level that maybe others can’t. I’d hope, and think that this would help others to feel understood and reassured in my chair the entirety of their time in the salon.

In fact! Most of my friends are from different countries, leaving me with the opportunity to be patient and really listen and understand what is trying to be conveyed. Whether its color, a new haircut, or even just a styling, I promise that you will be heard.

If you are looking for a drastic change, just a refresh, or are even new to the area I am your gal! My specialties include bomb haircuts, with a love for drastic long to short, but don’t let that scare you! I am a conservative gal too! If you need to start slow I’m there! I love when clients come in with a hair oops and I get to blow their minds with a solution that makes them feel like the oops never happened.  I adore a good head of bouncy curls, and my love and patience will show it too!

Please allow me to do your hair or makeup! Come on in and let’s get to know each other!

Meet Nikki and Risa!

HI, I’m Nikki!

I have been in the industry as a nail tech for 12+ years and have been with the TresImage family for coming up in 6 years. 

The opportunity to go to school for nails kind of just fell in my lap, thanks to my Mom & Dad and once I started, I really enjoyed it and felt confident in my work. Then, I’ve become close with so many of my clients and so it makes coming to work, not really feel like “work”. Being able to make my own schedule has really helped out as well because I have a family of 6 and we are always busy between school stuff, dance stuff and soccer season things

When I’m not doing family (business) things, you can find me at a great concert, out at a lake, sometimes somewhere in California, at the movies, Truckee river, Burningman events or here at the salon tending to your hands and feet!  I offer hard and soft gel nails and spa pedicures.  If you’re looking to book with me in the future, please call and make your appointment with plenty of time because my books tend to stay full a few weeks out.
Call 323-1414

Hello! My name is Risa!

I’ve been in the beauty industry since I was 18 years old.  I started out as a makeup artist while I was attending UNR.  I loved working with companies and individuals on their personal image and after 12 years I went to Beauty School to further my education and get my license to do hair.

So in 2001, I was blessed to work with a  couple of gals and Dean at a salon called DaVinci’s when I first got out of school and then a year later I opened up a smaller version of TresImage.  Fast forward 18 years later, and here we are…. TresImage at its current location.

What does TresImage mean to me?  Everything!  We have the best people working at TresImage.  Everyone is like family here.   WE help each other out and build each other up.  Education is super important and so is offering excellent customer service. 

Personally, I’m behind the chair four days a week and I love my clients.  I really enjoy doing all sorts of things, but A lines and Pixies are truly fun and exciting for me.  I also love Natural hair color applications.  Ask anyone and they will tell you that I always run on time.  I don’t like to run late.  And, I love office supplies!  I enjoy working in the office as much as I love working with my clients.

When I’m not at work, I love to hang out with my husband Ruben and our 6 year old daughter Annalisa.  We love to camp, boat, travel and eat great food.  I like RED wine vs white wine, Dark chocolate vs Milk chocolate and I’m trying to eat less carbs and stay healthy.

If you are in the salon, please say hello and introduce yourself.  My favorite quote is “No one is a stranger, but a friend you’ve never met,”

Meet Tawny and Em’lee

Hi, I’m Tawny Little

I’ve been a nail technician for over twelve years now.

I was drawn to this career because I had a knack creating nail designs and I wanted to be in a business where I had the flexibility to make my own hours, so I could help with my family members.  

I think what makes me stand out from other nail techs in my industry is, not only do I offer gel nails, I also offer acrylic nails. Some of my clients still prefer acrylic nails opposed to gel. 

When I’m not creating unique nail designs at TresImage, I like to hang out with my husband and my dogs, because they are like my children.

When booking a nail appointment with me, you should know that I take extra measures to ensure that every person that sits in my chair gets the experience they deserve. I always try and make sure you feel welcome and comfortable.

Call TresImage and make an appointment with me for all your gel, acrylic, or pedicure needs!

Em’Lee, Stylist

I’ve been at TresImage for 6+ years, and I enjoy current every day haircuts, and excel in men’s cuts (thanks to my 3 siblings who are all boys).

My outside interests include, anything outdoors. BBQing with family and friends, hunting and camping have been the biggest priorities this last year, and of course doing it with the people I love most. 

Family means the world to me and I love the family environment TresImage has created. I enjoy coming into work every day and meeting new people. My friends and family would describe me as outgoing, bubbly, and upbeat. 

Book your appointment today and see for yourself 323-1414

Get to know Derrick & Magda

HI I’m Derrick Zeno!

I entered into this industry right out of high school. I was very lucky because I have known sinceI was a child that I wanted to do hair.  AfterI graduated from cosmetology school, I have only worked at 4 different salons.One of those salon’s was my own for 21 years. Luckily, I found TresImage 9 years ago. The minute I walked intoTresImage I knew I had found my new home. I hope you feel the same way.

I recently entered aglobal color competition in Los Angeles and won Gold.  I was the first American to ever winGold.  48 Americans had tried before me.  It always feels amazing to make history.    I havealso worked on tv for 10 years doing an afternoon make over show. Working withour local television station we honored local people women who wanted acomplete change.

Currently, I am a National Education Team member for Goldwell hair color.  The number two color line  in the world! I get to travel ¾ of the year teaching top salons in NorthAmerica the latest in coloring trends and advanced techniques. 

When I do find a day off in Reno, I spend time with my son Michael and his lovely wife Morgan.  We love to golf, bowl and eat great food.

Back to the hair side of things.  I love following hair and fashion trends and using that knowledge to educate other stylists in our industry.  At TresImage we use this information to help our clients stay current and ahead of the trends.

Hi I am Magdalena.

I will  officially hitting my nine-year mark in the nail industry this coming January. I am happy to say that I have spent my entire career as a nail tech at TresImage salon. I love it here, we are truly a family-oriented salon and I really enjoy the diverse personalities.

The reason I started in this industry in the first place, was because I have always loved art since I can remember. Even though, the art was my first inspiration, after doing nails for a while, I found myself to be more in love with pedicures. Pedicures are my true passion. I love giving a great pedicure and seeing the difference in my client’s feet when they come back for their next appointment. The whole process is just amazing, from the beginning until the end. My pedicures involve cleanup of the cuticles and heels, sugar scrub, mask and hot towels, and a relaxing massage followed by a paint job that puts a smile on my client’s face. My favorite part is matching the colors based on their skin.This brings out my creative side.

Another huge reason this job brings me so much joy, is the relationships I have buil twith my clients over the years. They are truly my family and friends, and I am grateful that I have gotten to be a part of their lives over the last nine years. We laugh, we cry, and we share memories that make us cry and laugh even more. Being able to provide a great service, seeing my clients relax, or simply just having a great conversation is what makes my job so special.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my loved ones and two very hyper dogs that never seem to stop chasing the ball, I mean never. I also enjoy listening to music way too loud, cleaning as a relaxation technique, and spending time by the water.

If you ever want to get pampered, need to unwind after a long day at work or simply escape your retirement life, I just might be a girl for you. Also, I forgot to mention that I am funny, good listener, and deadly afraid of mice and clowns.

My favorite quote: “Live the Life of Your Dreams. When you start living the life of your dreams, there will always be obstacles, doubters, mistakes and setbacks along the way. But with hard work, perseverance and self-belief there is no limit to what you can achieve.” Roy T. Bennett

Dean & Valerie love their clients!

HI!  My name is Dean!

I started my career in this industry over 30 years ago and am lucky to say that I still enjoy going to work everyday. I’ve worked at TresImage since 2004 and I am very fortunate to work with a great team here.

My favorite aspects of this career is being able to build great relationships with my clients and make them feel great about themselves when they leave the salon.  I love and understand color theory and I’m able to create new looks for my clients using a new haircut or color formula to achieve their desired look.

Some of the haircuts that I love to do are long layers, A lines, pixie cuts and of course a good men’s cut. 

When I’m not at the salon, I love to travel, bake, read, and spend time with my friends and family. Some of my favorite places that I have traveled to are Spain, Paris, New Zealand and Berlin, Germany. 

If you’d like a consultation or appointment, you can call the salon or find me in our online booking system.  775-323-1414

I look forward to meeting you!

Hi!  I’m Valerie!

I have been doing nails for 4 years and came to TresImage right out of beauty school and never left! 

I got into the business because my mom pushed for me to go to school after I had my son. I only intended to go and do the bare minimum, but that did not end up being the case! I fell in love and wanted to know anything and everything about doing nails! 

I specialize in shaping and hand painted art work using hard gels!  I love that you can have super simple nails with a beautiful shape and they will always give you a polished look! 

I am so thankful to have the most amazing clients, some have been with me my entire career! I’ve truly become very close to my clients and I’ve built great relationships! 

Outside of work I have my 5 year old son, my boyfriend and two mastiff puppies! 

My favorite saying or quote is the one that says “I’ve always seen the glass half full instead of half empty.” That’s who I am. I like to stay positive and keep moving forward.

I love what I do and next time you are in the salon, come say hello!

Get to know our fabulous stylist…Estela and Kaela!

Hello! My name is Estela

In addition to being a full-time mom to three beautiful girls, I have been with Tres Image for over 11 years. I have had a passion for the hair industry for as long as I can remember, and I pride myself on my work and relationships with clients. It is my goal to provide you with something that will work with your lifestyle. I want you to leave knowing that you can style and recreate your look to feel beautiful at home long after you leave the salon. Staying current in trends and continuing my professional education is very important to me.

With everything I do, I strive to set a positive example for my daughters. I hope they see my strong will and drive and will become successful women in an ever-changing society.

I love being a northern Nevada resident, and all of the food, culture, music, and activities that the area has to offer. While a healthy and active lifestyle is very important to me, I also enjoy reading, watching movies, and most importantly spending time with my loved ones.

If you can relate to me, then let’s get you on my schedule!  I work Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday’s.  I look forward to meeting you.

Hi! I’m Kaela!

I have been licensed for about ten years and have worked at TresImage Salon for almost eight years!

Hair has always been a passion of mine, even throughout grade school. As a kid I liked to experiment with interesting hair styles to show off at school, so it was no surprise that I decided to go to cosmetology school after graduating high school.

When I’m not at work, I like to read as many books as I can while still furthering my education. I believe this is an important thing to keep doing even after you find your perfect career. Aside from that, I love to do Crossfit at least five times a week for health purposes. Call and make an appointment with me if you need some beautiful highlights while chatting about books or movies!

I specialize in fashion colors so that means I get to really use my artistic side and create from the heart while seeing new cities!  (10/10 would recommend) I love working with fashion colors because of the challenge, and how intriguing it is to look at. The possibilities are endless! I love the look on my clients faces when they decide to dive into fashion colors for the first time and realize we can ALL pull it off! Yes, I do clients of ALL ages. (Find some of my favorites on instagram @k.s.colors) when I’m not working, you can find me at home with my boys! My fiancé, 5 year old son, and our dog Spencer.

I love making people feel good about themselves even if it’s as simple as them just getting their nails done or getting a pedicure. I love the relationship I build with my clients, I see their family grow, I see them grow. Not only do I provide nail services, but also a listener of your ups and downs, and frequent karaoke / serenader if you are sitting in my chair When I’m not at work, you’ll find me either racing, hiking or drinking coffee somewhere! I love being active and being outdoors and I love my Cat!
