Hair Stylists

 

steve davisSteve Davis

Owner and master stylist, Steve Davis is the driving force behind the excellence found at Blush.  Steve began his career in 1994 at Salon 191 on the Main Line in Philadelphia. Shortly after, he moved to Bucks County and secured a hairstylist and manager position at David J. Witchell in Newtown. His career quickly took off! Steve became one of the most renowned stylists in the area.

In 2002, Steve found himself at a crossroads and decided to venture out with his wife to build a high end salon that not only would deliver superior hairstyles but also provide a comfortable and welcoming  salon environment.

His expertise and unique sense of style are exemplified throughout the salon. All stylists work closely with Steve to complete his extensive in-house training program before they can be certified as a Level I Stylist. He also provides ongoing advanced training with higher level stylists, so that they can reach their full potential. 

With over 22 years of experience in hair design, Steve has a gift for transforming his client’s appearance.  He is most gratified by taking someone out of their comfort zone and revealing their true potential.  His clients return to his chair not only because of his confidence and consistent quality, but because they enjoy his open mindedness and his ability to relate to the “real world”. 

Steve has received many awards and acknowledgements throughout the years but he is proudest of the Best of Philly award in 2012 for “Best Hair Colorist” by Philadelphia Magazine.

Outside the salon Steve is a true family man. Whether it is running to and from sports fields, boating or fishing you will always find him with his family. It is his favorite place to be.

 

Dana Madden

First an artist…then a hair stylist.
Dana began developing her career as an artist at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia.  While she enjoyed working with two-dimensional art, Dana has always had an interest in the beauty industry and the challenge of working in three dimensions was what finally drew her in.  

Dana graduated from Jean Madeline in Philadelphia and began her training with Steve Davis in 2005.  She is certified as a Master Colorist and continues training with high level educators and brands from across the country.  She is currently a Level 4 stylist at Blush.

Dana’s spontaneity and zeal set her apart from her co-workers, and her clients agree that her contagious enthusiasm and easy conversation while in her chair bring them back.

 

elliot moyerElliot Moyer

Elliot Moyer comes from a family of hair stylists. His parents and grandfather were salon owners. As a child he spent a lot of time there – he literally grew up in a hair salon. With this background, training and guidance from Steve Davis, Elliot has the confidence and understanding of what it takes to be a great stylist. 

Elliot started his career with Blush in 2004. He is certified as a master colorist and continues advanced training with high level educators from across the country. Elliot is currently a Level 4 stylist.

Ask anyone at Blush what sets Elliot apart (besides his great talent with hair), and they’ll tell you he’s an incredible listener – and one that won’t offer unsolicited advice.  When he’s not at the salon, Elliot enjoys spending time with his family and working out at the gym.

 

lea davis-manningLea Davis-Manning

Lea Davis-Manning, a level 3 stylist, has been with Blush since its opening in 2002.  Working and training closely with Steve Davis, Lea has developed a style of her own reflecting her keen eye and creative energy.   Her attention to detail gives each client the highest level of service and individual attention.  She is known as a perfectionist to her coworkers – a critical attribute to many of those who sit in her chair.  Lea holds a Master Colorist certification and her additional training includes courses with Aveda, Wella, Sebastian, Renee Furterer and Alfaparf.  She has also pursued training in advanced formal design. 

Ask Lea what her number one priority is (outside of Blush, of course), and she’ll tell you her family.    Hanging out with her two young boys can often border insanity, but in the end Lea says there’s nowhere else she’d rather be.

 

Raul Irizarry

Head Massage Master… Is the perfect nickname for Raul. Not only known for his amazing hair washes but also for his charisma and charm.

Raul comes from a family of hairstylists; he spent most of his childhood learning the trade from his mother, aunts and cousins. After High School he went on to complete two years at West Chester University, only to realize his passion was for doing hair.

Raul joined Blush in 2009; he completed the training program with ease and is now a Level 3 stylist.

Raul has a great sense of humor. In the salon you may catch him singing, dancing or rehearsing lines from his favorite movies or T.V. shows. Raul is very motivated and focuses on bringing out the beauty and fun in everyone.
