Susan Beaupre
Susan Beaupre – Owner/Stylist
I always dreamed of doing hair and owning my own salon ever since I was a little girl. I went to Cosmetology School in Southern California and had the good fortune of being able to live in several states and gain different experiences that helped me tremendously when shaping my vision for my own salon. With the help and encouragement of my amazing husband, family, friends and clients I was able to see my dream come to reality when I opened Pure Bliss in 2011. While I am no longer behind the chair, being able to stay in the salon world as an owner has been a blessing.

Hey there! I’m taylor. I’ve been a licensed cosmetologist going on ten years and have loved every second of it! I am a color specialist and have worked with alot of color lines and prefer to use Pulp Riot and Aveda, because of the natural properties that go into the hair color and styling products. My favorite part of this industry is seeing my clients light up when their color turns out amazing or when they have been trying to get that perfect cut to match their personality and style they have been trying so hard to achieve. At the end of the day we all just want to look great and feel great, so come see me for some awesome hair and great conversation!
