Elizabeth Payne

Master Stylist
close
info:
Education: I went to the Art Institute of Boston to focus on painting and ceramics for my BFA. After that, I went to Blaine for my cosmetology license and I began working at Pyara when we first opened our Cambridge location in 2004. After we opened our Burlington location, I moved to this location. Throughout my time at Pyara, I have taken as many Aveda classes as I could: classes related to men's and women's styles, cuts and trends, Aveda hair color line, corrective color, reds and blondes, perms and relaxers, keratin straighteners, and up-do's to name a few. In my time at Pyara, I became very interested in educating other stylists. I taught classes related to perms and relaxers, and up-do's, while being a mentor to new stylists as they develop their craft. When I had my 1st child, I decided that I loved teaching, so I took an extended maternity leave so that I could go to Lesley University for my M.Ed in visual arts. Inspiration: As an artist, I'm interested in the colors, shapes, movement, composition, and space, and how those elements facilitate a reaction in viewers. These elements translate to my interests as a hairstylist. I think about my guests' style as an extension of my art with a different medium. As a stylist, I'm interested in providing a great experience for my guests. I love creating beautiful hair colors, accentuating individual's natural beauty, and developing realistic style possibilities for each person. I'm inspired by art, nature, sounds, and life as I meet my goals.

Education: Graduated from Empire Beauty School. Inspiration: I fell in love with the Aveda lifestyle as soon as I started working at Pyara in 2011. Over the years, I have been fortunate enough to work under some of the most incredible educators that Aveda has to offer. I have enjoyed continuing to grow and learn from both my talented peers as well as my dedicated clients every single day! As an educator for our in-house program, I love sharing my passion for everything from soft balayage techniques, to shock-worthy fashion tones. When it comes to styling, I'm always down for drama, whether that means a big change or finding the tiny nuances within the cut to create dramatic improvements to a tried-and-true shape.

Education: Empire Beauty School & Aveda Education. Inspiration: I chose the beauty industry because beauty is more than skin deep. Do I spend the day making people look beautiful on the outside?

info:
Education: I graduated in 2007 from the Honolulu Community College 1800 hour Cosmetology program in Hawaii. In the last decade, I have had experience working in many different salon environments whether it be a full service salon, Barbershop or Blow dry bar. In these different salon settings, I’ve worked with all types of hair and clientele. From the thick, course hair my clients have in the Pacific to the soft, fine hair some of my clients have here on the East Coast. No matter what the texture I always strive for perfection in every thing that I do. I have been very fortunate to attend additional education in cutting and color classes in both Hawaii and New England, taking what I have learned and fuse it into my own unique style and creativity. Inspiration: Beauty is in everyone. I just find a way to enhance the natural beauty in each client. Just seeing how much joy my work brings to someone is all the inspiration and motivation I need to continue to do what I do.

Licensed Massage Therapist
close
info:
Education: Salter School Tewksbury, MA 900 hours of Massage, 6 years of experience in Deep tissue, Swedish, Prenatal, Sports,and Trigger point.I specialize in Reiki I/II, pronounced ray-key, which is Japanese for “universal life force or energy.” Reiki is a noninvasive holistic healing system that works with the body’s chakras. A Reiki healer works throughout the body to release blocked energy, allowing it free flow throughout the mind-body-spirit system. Reiki is used alone and in conjunction with other healing methods for many ailments. In addition to Reiki, I use reflexology within some of my services in which manipulation is used on the area on the feet that corresponds with the organs in the body. Myofascial Scar Release is another technique that I use to help improve the soft tissue and prevent the formation of adhesions and fiboses in the area.( Surgical scars, as well as scar tissue from lacerations or torn muscles). Inspiration: Working from the heart and let my hands by my guide providing a quality massage to address the individual needs of my guest, help decrease over all stress, and increase overall wellness. Calm the mind, treat the body, soothe the soul.
