As our former receptionist, Phleasha has returned to us as a licensed stylist. She is a passionate and talented woman who has studied with well-known stylists such as Nick Arrojo (from What Not to Wear on TLC) and has attended numerous sessions for Sebastian, Wella, and Keratin. She recently received her lash extension certification and will soon be ready to offer this service to The Spa at Blake and Company. She also is one of our nail techs and can pamper your tired hands and feet. She is a jack of all trades around the salon and spa. Phleasha’s day isn’t complete until she helps to m
ake each of her client’s stylistic vision into reality!
Phleasha is a unique soul and is always full of surprises. When asked what her favorite color was she said grey, which would seemingly contradict this gal who grew up in Manassas taste for all things spicy! She thoroughly enjoys watching True Crime and Dateline 20/20 and is always on the hunt for new things to learn about and to keep her mind sharp.
While she enjoys all the services we provide here at Blake & Co., color has become one of her passions and those who sit in her chair leave as her biggest fans. Some of her other strengths include specialty colors, managing uncontrollable hair, styling, and braiding. She is also great with make-up.
Her favorite service to provide are lone blowouts and she has put the blow-dry classes she attended through the Regency Beauty Institute and the Dry Bar to great use here at Blake & Co! She recommends and uses Wella Oil Reflections on everyone, as it is a beautiful finishing product that puts the icing on the cake!
Phleasha admits to a fear of the deep, dark, depths of the oceans (who can blame her?!) but at the same time, she wouldn’t turn away some excellent sushi!
She is a total music lover with an eclectic taste, with a soft spot for Michael Jackson and the 90’s! She has many pets (three cats, two Dachshunds, five frogs, seven geckos, and a Beta fish!!!) which is why she received our Dr. Dolittle award at our recent 10-year anniversary celebration. She often shows her empathy and caring attitude by helping people and animals.
With a hot cup of coffee in her hand every morning, she is ready to conquer each day and to be an integral part of the Blake & Co. team! Be sure to show her some love and schedule an appointment with her to be pampered.
