Tell us about Stella and Shay. How did you get started?

My inspiration came from watching my dad own a business for many many years. I wanted to create a positive work environment for beauty professionals who take this career seriously. I wanted to focus on education and expanding one’s craft to grow personally and professionally. We began our business 5 years ago in Cleveland, Ohio. We expanded to our second location in November of 2018 and opened our Market Square location in April of 2021.

Why did you choose Downtown Pittsburgh, specifically Market Square?

Both of our other locations are not downtown locations. It was very exciting to get into a new area but also a downtown spot. We love Downtown Pittsburgh so much. We felt the Market Square area was a perfect landing spot to be able to offer beauty services to the surrounding areas, especially on lunch breaks for all the young professionals! So far we are loving the area and getting to know the other small businesses right here in the square!

What makes your salon unique?

We are a full-service salon that stays up with all the latest trends and education. We are an upscale salon that keeps our doors open to everyone and anyone! We have custom-made furniture in all of the locations that were built just for us. All of our locations have unique interior designs, always keeping a pampering environment in mind.

What services do you offer?

Hair, Nails, and Spa Services such as facials, lashes, waxing, and brow laminations. Clients can expect high-quality services using professional products from highly trained licensed professionals.

A lash lift is the perfect service if you like that “ I woke up like this “ feeling!
