Experienced in all aspects of haircare and makeup application Hello There!! I'm a hairstylist who has been in the industry for 10 years. I developed my skills in the Boston area before relocating to Ron Paul Salon in Virginia Beach.

I am passionate and energetic about this industry, continuously learning new and improved techniques. I strive to create an inviting, laid back, positive, and enjoyable atmosphere for all of my clients. I take my time to do thorough consultations listening to their ideas so we always end up with a great end result! I take hair texture, face shape, and day-to-day at home styling into consideration.

Operating as usual


Dearest Clients,
It is with such happiness and excitement but also a bit of a heavy heart that I write you this letter. I have made the decision to relocate my family back to my home state of Massachusetts to be closer to our family, and to also allow my fast growing boys the opportunity to make everlasting memories with our family up north. My last day in business will be December 19, 2021. This may come as a surprise to some, but to most you very likely may have seen this coming. Words could never express how extremely grateful I am for your loyalty and support over the past 10 years behind my chair in Virginia Beach. I want you all to know that you all have helped me in some way or another (whether you realized it or not) get through so many different trials & tribulations that have come my way here and from the bottom of my heart I thank you. I will always look back on my time here in Virginia Beach as a time of growth and a sign of strength, Since many of you know raising my boys while being away from my family hasn’t always been easy or fulfilling. So THANK YOU, thank you all, thank you for trusting me all of these years not just with your hair but trusting me with all of your stories and your trials & tribulations that any of you have gone through and chosen to share with me whether it was helping you or mostly helping me. I have truly enjoyed being your hairstylist. I will gladly offer any referrals to other stylists in the area to anyone who would like one. I love you all and again I thank you so very much for sticking with me these past 10 years. Onto my next journey!

With so much love,



PHASE 1 begins tomorrow May 15. I am back in business starting tomorrow STRICTLY adhering to DPOR guidelines. Although temporary, they are NON-NEGOTIABLE. With that being said , there are some services that I will not be providing at this time. Please continue to read the rules and regulations that will stand in place during phase 1 . These are put into effect to ensure the safety and health of my clients but also to ensure me and my family stay safe and healthy as well 💕

ALL Appointments are by appointment only

I ask that you please arrive to your appointment by yourself leaving your children, friends , and family at home 🏡 The stylists in the salon are only booking one client at a time per stylist to keep the amount of people in the salon to a minimum , again, this is to ensure that everyone stays in good health ♥️

Upon arrival to your appointment please text when you arrive and wait for my OK to enter into the salon. This must be utilized to minimize the number of people congregating in the waiting area and it also allows ample time to disinfect my workstation and tools in between each client.

Please put your mask on before entering the salon ☝🏼 If you are getting a chemical service I ask that you do not wear your favorite one 😆 I will try my best to not get color on it but ......things happen 👩🏻‍🎨😊

Upon entry to the salon hand sanitizer will be provided immediately. I will also have hand sanitizer readily available on my workstation. Please bring minimal items with you into the salon.

There will be no magazines offered or self serve coffee offered at this time. ☕️📖

And lastly, this is a BIGGIE and will for sure be a disappointment to most , but at this time shampoos will only be for those receiving a chemical service. If your appointment is scheduled for only a haircut please arrive with freshly washed hair. Again this is to minimize to the greatest degree possible close direct face-to-face contact.

I ask that you adhere to the following guidelines to help me and the rest of the stylists at The Maxx salon ensure everyones safety and good health.

Please know that these restrictions are temporary and these restrictions will be lifted when this phase is complete and I am comfortable to do so. I’d like to stay in the salon working with no setbacks so following these rules are key 🔑

Again , I thank you all for your patience during this time. I am still in the process of contacting everybody and getting clients scheduled . Please continue to stay patient as i try to accommodate everyone onto my schedule while keeping us healthy in the process ♥️

Xo, Stephanie

♥️ A message for my clients ♥️

First off, I’d like to thank every single one of you for working with me during this time. I apologize to those I have not responded to or contacted as I’ve been frozen in hard-core hermit status with this quarantine. Taking steps back to dive deep into my family time. I’ve missed all of you !!!! 💕 It lifts my spirits to know I have that connection with all of you even when you aren’t in my chair. I’ve loved every text message, meme, etc.… I can’t express how much it means the connection and support you have provided just reaffirms my gratitude I feel for what I get to do for a living and who I get to do it for.. I thank you for checking in with me to see how I’ve been doing but also letting me know how things are on your end. I cannot describe how grateful I am for all your support. 🙏🏻🙏🏻 Now let’s get down to business because I’m sure you’re thinking when can I get my hair done!!! ✂️✨

⭐️ Here it goes ⭐️

Effective May 8th, 2020 The executive order will be lifted and we will be returning to work. As a stylist at The Maxx salon we have been working to find solutions that will best help our clients and businesses. As stylists our job involves very close contact that can range from 30 minutes to a few hours. With new guidelines and restrictions in place all of us stylists at The Maxx have had to make some changes in how we operate. We will be keeping to a 10 person limit while in the salon continuing to practice social distancing. At the shop we have all adjusted our hours to ensure we do not exceed that 10 person limit. During your appointment I ask if you have access to a mask that you please wear one.....I will be wearing one as well. Anything works!...scarfs , bandannas etc... whatever you have on hand....this is to make absolutely sure that you and everyone else in our salon stays as safe and healthy as possible. Unfortunately at this time no one is able to accompany you during your services at the salon this includes children , friends and family. We also will only be booking one client at a time, there will be no double booking. As always, if your not feeling well, please, for your safety and ours we can reschedule your appointment. My hope is you can all understand these decisions and changes I/We are positively embracing ..I am dedicated to doing everything I can to get my business up and running again!! I am working daily to reschedule or just schedule in general all of my clients. I thank you all for your patience while I work through my call list , thank you again for your love and support during this time. I’m looking forward to getting all of you back in my chair and sharing all of our crazy stories on this journey we have all been forced into 😊 I’ll see you all in my chair soon ♥️ Stay Safe, Stay Healthy, Stay Sane 😉

Xo, Stephanie
