Shawna Herberger
Salon Owner | Redken Artist

Extension Preconsultation

Come visit me at 5th Avenue. Let’s chat about your #hairgoals and create a style with a maintenance plan to keep your hair healthy, fresh, and flawless. I’ve been a very demanded stylist in this area for over 10 years. Specializing in lived-in, effortless color, + totally ‘Gram worthy hair. Obsessed with blonding and everything Redken. The secret to dream hair is being in my chair. All of my guests know that the most beautiful hair is no filter needed, healthy hair.
 
Shawna lives in Peoria Heights with husband, Jason, and their three very active kiddos. When Shawna isn’t spending time with her family, working as a stylist, or running the Salon & Spa Company, she is an Artist with Redken. Such a cool experience traveling the US and training with this amazing global brand! Being able to bring that vibe back to my own company and build this unique culture is such an incredible journey!

What’s up I’m Taylor! I’ve been doing hair for 5 years but I’ve been obsessed with vivid colors since I was a little kid! Behind my chair I also thrive on all things redheads and blonding. When I’m not coloring, I’m definitely doing bridal makeup or sewn in weft hair extensions.

My ultimate goal is to bring good vibes only, an exceptional experience, a casual therapy sesh and of course some awesome art work for my guest to carry with them into their lives. Catch me at 5th Avenue!

Kayla Kubiak
Level 1 Artist

Hey there, I am a Tricoci University graduate of 2021. I enjoy color sessions, blonding, and getting my hands on some vivids is always a fun time! Extensions are my passion so if you’re looking to add some length, volume, or just wanting to amp up your look I’m your girl.

Helping you achieve the look that helps you be you is what I love!

Maggie Whiting
Level 2 Esthetician

Maggie is all about the small details! If you’re after perfectly styled, low maintenance brows then she’s your gal. Her facial flow combines her experience in a traditional day spa with her love of clinical skincare.

A farm girl at heart, you’ll usually find her carrying in produce from the Riverfront Market on Saturday mornings.

Sydney Trapp

Hey beauties! I am an up-and-coming Esthetician at Salon 5th Avenue. I specialize in quick, easy, and painless body waxing, brow shaping and tinting, lash tinting, and facial treatments tailored to fit individual clients’ needs! I chose this career path because it’s a very emotionally rewarding profession. Making people look good also makes them feel good; which in return, makes me feel good. It’s happiness for all! I strive to create a positive change in the world, one face at a time!

Outside of being an Esthetician, I share a home with my soon to be hubby, Layton and our Rhodesian Ridgeback rescue, Daisy Mae! You can usually find me spending time with my family or relaxing at home binge watching true crime shows. I look forward to seeing your lovely faces in my treatment room!
