Leslie Cavanaugh

Milieu Salon & Spa Founder

I have been serving clients of all ages, genders, and hair types- fine, curly etc. since 1983. I have been a co-owner of Milieu Salon and Spa since 2007. My focus is on natural and botanical hair care and products with an emphasis on the individual needs of my clients. I have training in cutting and color with professional styling lines such as Aveda, Matrix, and Redkin. I know communication between the stylist and client is the most important skill of all to be successful in creating the look we both want. I enjoy corrective color, fixing unfortunate hair cuts, keeping up with current trends, as well as working with naturally curly hair.

Tina Thompson

Milieu Salon & Spa Founder

I have worked as a designer behind the chair for the last 25 years, to a devoted list of clients. My clients receive customized hair color and cuts that complement the their hair texture and facial features. I received advance training from Matrix over a 12 year period. As a master colorist, I was a guest artist at hair shows, and facilitated educational events. With my Matrix experience I had the opportunity to work in the model rooms of Daniel Roldan, Nicholas French, and Vivienne Mackinder. In addition to servicing my regular clients, I am the Educational Director for Milieu Salon. I teach and schedule advanced training programs for the salon designers.

Danielle Priola

Stylist & Massage Therapist

I've been doing hair since 2008 and massage since 2006. I enjoy making people feel great, whether that is through just a hair touch up, major transformation, or a massage that leaves you feeling better physically and more relaxed. I love that cosmetology has allowed me to express my artistic side. I enjoy working with all different types of hair from super fine and straight, to thick and curly. My favorite services to perform are coloring and cutting to achieve a full transformation. I am now also certified in extensions, which I really enjoy! I specialize in deep relaxation where you get to indulge in complete relaxation while focusing on any problem areas you may have. 

I have two young kids, Landon and Elaina, whom I enjoy spending time with and exploring outside. We love to go crabbing, fishing, and going to the islands. We take weekend road trips so we can adventure and see new things. 

I look forward to hearing about your interests and seeing what I can do for you!

Kim Presson

Stylist

I have been doing hair since 2007. I’ve always enjoyed being creative in all different types of ways and I love that I get to channel my creativity through hair. My favorite services to perform are creative color and being able to transform people’s overall look. I love working with curly hair, since I have it myself. It’s fun to show others how to maintain and take care of their natural hair at home. My goal is to help my clients be successful in creating the same look on their own.

 

I am a proud mom of Austin, Jayden, Lilah, and Macie Mae Schnaunker (my cute doggy at home). Austin is a dog groomer and very musically gifted, Jayden is my Marine, and Lilah is also pursuing a career in the military. When I am not doing hair, I enjoy country dancing, which I have been doing for over 25 years. I also love anything arts and crafts and at home DIY.

Natalee Murry

Stylist

I’ve always been interested in beauty and fashion. In high school, I would beg my mom to let me get my hair done way too often and eventually started doing it myself- which I do not condone anymore. Don’t be surprised if I have different hair every time you see me, because I love trying out new things all the time! I’ve been doing hair since 2019. I love being able to make people happy and feel good about the way they look and I love helping people show off their personality through their hair. My favorite services are blondes, especially balayages, extensions, which I am now certified in, and fun colors. It is always fun to completely transform someone’s look. 

 

Like I said, I love fashion and putting together outfits. Going thrifting is super fun for me because I also love finding random decorations for my house. I also really enjoy being outside. I spend a lot of my time at the beach with my husband, Jacob, and where we love having picnics. Spending time with my friends and family is what I mostly do when I’m not working. My cat Chara is a crazy kitten who keeps me very entertained.

Kyah Lamb

Stylist

My passion for hair has never changed; I learned how to braid when I was five and fell in love with it. I grew up watching my grandma do her roots every four weeks and cutting my barbie’s hair and coloring it with markers. I’ve been doing hair since 2019. I love that I can make people feel good about themselves and enhance their natural features. I really want to change the hair game by having a more natural approach to it. I one day aspire to have my own salon and do natural herbal treatments for hair and skin health. My favorite techniques to do are balayage, fashion colors, updos, and shag haircuts. I am also certified in extensions! 

 

No kiddos, yet, but, I am the oldest of seven and enjoy every minute of having a big family. I love the outdoors whether I am hiking, collecting rocks and crystals that catch my eye, or just being in nature. I love taking road trips with my friends and family and my boyfriend, Josh, and I would love to travel all over the world! Some of my favorite hobbies are working out, playing volleyball, and thrifting.
