Port Saint Lucie, Florida
All the way from South Florida, we would like to introduce ourselves as the team at Salon Identity. We are a unique group of creative stylists that are driven to change the world one beauty at a time and would like to take the time to introduce ourselves.
Denise Gardner is our amazing salon owner who has just celebrated her 30 year anniversary as a hairstylist! She has worked in hair salons and barber shops all throughout Florida and Deleware and looks forward to many more years owning our successful salon. Denise specializes as a color master and loves learning new things every opportunity she gets.
Donna Lynn Devlin is our beautiful and inspiring salon manager who has been in the beauty industry for her entire life, starting with making over her 4 sisters as kids. She was always told she has such an amazing talent and would go very far in life with it, and that she did. Donna specializes in hair and make up for weddings, special events and also for private photoshoots. She “loves changing people’s lives and creating art one beauty at a time.” She is highly inspired by her husband and 3 children who support her through thick and thin. She also lives by the quote, “You can take no credit for beauty at sixteen, but if you are beautiful at sixty, it will be your souls own doing.” by Maire Stopes. You can find Donna Lynn Devlin on Facebook at Salon Identity’s page, as well as her own page under “Donna Lynn Devlin.” Also, she has her own website; donnadevlinhairandmakeup.com
Joan Mendez is one of our stylists who has over 21 years of experience the beauty industry, working in New Jersey and Florida. She has always loved doing hair and the people who she changes are her biggest inspiration, as well as her supporting family. Joan has worked with celebrities John Cygan and his wife and did Michael Chiklis’ wife’s hair. Having such an honor has helped push her in her career. You can find Joan on Salon Identity’s Facebook.
Michael Mullany is our newest member of the team, but don’t let the word new scare you! He has been working in Florida and Michigan for over 25 years specializing in color, up-do’s, and wedding hair. He was a Walt Disney Hair and Make-up Specialist from January of 1993 to July of 1998 and has worked with many stars including Joan London and her daughter and Regis Philbin. He was pushed by hair grandmother, who taught him how to set hair and had a love for it from day one. He is inspired by his family, fashion, nature and television and when asked what his biggest fear was, he simply stated “spiders” and laughed. You can find Michael Mullany on Facebook and also on Salon Identitys page.
We believe we should compete in Las Vegas because together we have enough drive to change not only Florida, but the whole world. We would love the opportunity to show people from all over the country what incredible things we can do and if we win the competition we will create excitement and will power that will drive us to succeed and follow our dreams of success. We are all aware of the filming and look forward to it if given such amazing opportunity!
Much love from sunny South Florida!
