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.
