Our Team

Mandy Steele

I started my career working while I was in hair school at Alston Brook Nursing Home and also working at Great Clips as a receptionist. After graduation from Cosmetolegy, I became a stylist for Great Clips and continued to work at the nursing home doing hair. It was in Great Clips that I learned basic skills and began building the foundation of my broad experience. Early in my hair career I found that I was passionate about owning my own business and decided to venture out and do just that, by opening “Mandy’s Perfect Impressions” in June 2007. I am proud to be the owner and a hairstylist at Mandy’s Perfect Impressions Salon and Spa. I have been in the industry for 9 years now. I love my job because I get to make every person that sits in my chair feel great about themselves. I get to meet so many new people every day and everyone has a different story, wants a different look and I get to help them accomplish it. I LOVE to go to classes and learn the latest trends and styles and bring them back to my clients and my team. I am certified to do Keratin Complex permanent hair straightener. Doing Keritian Complex to me is one of the most rewarding services that I have done. It can change a person’s life. Come in and let me or a talented member of my staff help you find your new look. < SEE HER WORK >

I’ve always had a passion for hair , it started at a very young age with Barbie dolls and doing family’s hair for fun. In high school I did an internship at a salon and got a part time job as an assistant at Mandy’s Perfect Impressions. That’s when I fell in love with this career and knew I had to go to school to get my license. After graduating high school I went to Leon’s Beauty in Greensboro and graduated in only 10 months. I enjoy going to continuing education classes to learn what’s new and stylish because the hair world is always changing. I have a huge passion for color but also love hair-cutting. My favorite part is seeing my clients face light up when they love the transformation of their hair. Being a dresser to me means making someone feel good about them selves and that’s what I strive to do with every client. So come in and let me help you love your hair!
