Founder & Co-Owner
From the time I was a small child, I can remember being obsessed with all things glam. It later grew into an interest in art and I began to excel in my drawing, color & painting classes. Color fascinated me, structure intrigued me, and translating that to the human face just seemed like second nature. I have been lucky enough to have taken courses and been trained by some of the best artists in the industry. I was first certified in 2007 in Special FX, Bridal, and Theatre by Bert Roth of 20/20. I have also been certified in advanced artistry by international artist Manuel Villegas from Lancome, National Artist David Bordwell from Stila, and also certified by the artists from Sephora PRO team. I have had the pleasure of working as a key makeup artist on editorial and beauty shoots for Six One Zero Magazine, and photographers Tobias Hibbs, Emily Bleasedale, & Joseph Joyce. Taking in knowledge never gets old and neither does seeing those tips and tricks create more confidence in each client. Often our self-image is directly reflected by how we feel about the way we look. Makeup Artistry should never mask or create a false confidence, but rather enhance a woman’s unique and favorite attributes. Communication is key and makeup artistry is about creating a relationship with the client, listening to her concerns, and bringing forth the best features. From a photo shoot, wedding, or home makeover — it’s about the individual and creating a safe environment for her to openly discuss her beauty concerns. That’s what separates the vast array of us artists out there. Having a true professional to enhance your natural structure, complexion, and skin tone makes every special event even more poignant. I love bringing my unique touch, fun, and interpersonal skills to each consultation, resulting in the best version of yourself for any event!
I'm a makeup artist as well as a licensed esthetician(almost 2 years now). I was born and raised here in Easton, and attended Metro Beauty Academy after high school! I've always had a love for makeup, which has now grown into my biggest passion! What I love most about my job is that I get to make women feel beautiful, which is such a powerful thing!
Senior Lead Styist
As a little girl I was always consumed in anything and everything related to hair or makeup. I felt it was the one thing that allowed me to express my artistry and personality. I remember playing in my mom’s hair and makeup bag just thinking how awesome it was to be all glammed up at seven years old! I knew cosmetology was my calling and what I wanted as a career. I graduated from Northampton Area Vocational Technical School in 2008 and achieved my cosmetology license at that time. After graduation I entered an assistant program at a high end private salon in Bethlehem, PA. I assisted multiple stylists for six months and then started my career behind the chair. I attended Bumble and bumble University (BbU) multiple times receiving certifications in hair cutting techniques and business courses. At that time I also became certified in three different color lines as well as seven full product lines. I was a stylist at the salon for five years until I left for a new journey. In 2011, I became a full time makeup artist at Sephora which allowed me to explore a different area of my industry and become more well-rounded. At Sephora I received certifications in skin care, makeup and hair care products. After two years at Sephora I was ready to get back into my one true passion, hair. In 2013, I pursued a full time position at a high end private salon and spa in Allentown, PA doing everything from hair to esthetics. I became certified in Repechage esthetics and products, Jane Iredale makeup and Aveda color and products. When 2014 came around I decided to return to my starting salon in Bethlehem. I was now returning with more certifications, training and the necessary knowledge needed to grow in this career. I was involved in multiple photo shoots and advertisements for local companies and small businesses. Even after all this I still wanted more out of my industry. In 2016, I made the choice to join the talented Alisha Nycole team! Being able to share in a client’s special day, no matter what the event, is so incredibly exciting! My passion is for my clients and this industry. I will never stop educating myself and I will continue to learn and grow in all areas of my career. Knowing that my passion can make a difference for someone is the reason why I will forever love what I do!

I always knew I wanted to be a hairstylist since I was a little girl. Hair is in my blood. There's nothing more rewarding than making my clients look good and feel better about themselves. I attended The cosmetology program in my junior year of high school at Bethlehem Area Vo tech School. I graduated In 2006, passed my state boards, and received my license that summer. I started working at JC Penney Salon (after a full year of college) in 2007. After 7 years at JCP, I left and worked at a private salon, Salon LoRe. I became an Education Expert for Sexy Hair in 2012. I travel around the surrounding states teaching cutting and upstyling classes to other hair stylists. This last December, I was chosen to be a stylist for the Miss World 2016 Pageant with Sexy Hair. What an amazing experience to style the contestant's hair! When I was pregnant with my second son, I decided I was ready to open my own salon. My dream was to open a salon in our home so I could continue to work, but be a stay at home wife and mom. In October 2015, Salon Deevine was officially open! I joined Alicia Nycole this past summer. I love upstyling brides. Making sure the bride and her bridal party look and feel amazing on that special day is an important task and my number one priority. It's truly an honor to be a part of her special day and help achieve her "fairytale" look. I credit my cosmetology teacher, Mrs. Vicky Haines for always believing in me. She taught me to work hard, to keep educating myself, and to never give up. Her encouragement has always been a driving force and I want to continue to make her proud. The saying, "If you love your job, you'll never have to work a day in your life" rings true! I love being a hairstylist!
My name is Ashley Fontana and I've been a cosmetologist for 9 years! I worked at Gadzooks Salon in Bethlehem and Allure Salon and Spa in Allentown. I trained with Bumble and Bumble, Aveda, and Redken. I have been to many classes over the years to keep up on the current trends and styles including in Valley Forge, Reading and Philadelphia. I trained at the University of Bumble and Bumble in NYC twice. I also spent 4 days at the Beauty Academy of Pittsburgh where I took classes from Nick Arrojo and Vidal Sassoon. I have been trained and Certified in Brazilian Blowouts and Spray Tanning! I just recently joined Alisha Nycole and Company and I'm loving EVERY second. I'm currently training with one of her top bridal stylists, Adrienne, to make sure I keep up on the most current Bridal and Updo trends and give you the best look for your special day!
I have been a stylist for over 20 years, and I can honestly say that the very best part of my career and my work with clients is making them look and feel fabulous! It is a wonderful feeling making a woman smile and LOVE the reflection they see in the mirror! It is the relationships that you have the honor of building with each other. To let a special, unique person know that you are there for them to listen and give them a priceless, lovely experience for their special occasion. Every situation and client is different, so it is always a new, exciting day and another chance to make a positive, remarkable impression and relationship with someone who puts their trust in you.
I fell in love with hair and make up, I think at a very young age. I used to cut my Barbie dolls hair and paint their faces with pens, markers, anything I could find. I've always had a love for it. It wasn't until my 20s that I actually got my cosmetology license and I've been doing hair and make up for over 10 years now and it is my passion. I absolutely love making people feel beautiful and great about themselves so they can take anything on.
Being a biology major in college allows little to no creative outlet. While that might not bother the typical “left brained” student, I found my outlet and took to makeup to fulfill my creative needs. Over the next several years I watched as many tutorials as I could and learned as much about makeup as the internet allowed. After briefly pursuing my master’s in cosmetic science, a career I thought my love of cosmetics was taking me, I realized that lab work was not for me and my true passion was working one on one with people and making them feel their best. Over 4 years ago, I left school and started working as a professional makeup artist and have continued to learn and grow. Creating intimate connections with women and helping them to feel their most confident and beautiful self is something I would do every day without earning a single penny, however I have been blessed with the opportunity to have this become my career. I am grateful that I get to do what I love everyday!
I have been doing hair for about 7 years, specializing in bridal for 3. I always loved the beauty industry. Actually pretty much obsessed with it... it definitely feeds the soul. I am so enthusiastic about weddings in general and just helping our brides have a stress-free fun day! It is like having a girls slumber party every weekend!!! The thrill of getting a bride ready for one of the most important days of her life is what I live for. Weddings are not just a job for me on that day, I want to share the excitement with you and everyone else and I want to make that morning memorable. As a stylist, I also enjoy the creativity in up styling and I feel that's it's super exciting and a ever changing area in the cosmetology field. I like how each one of our brides want something a little different to fit their own particular and individual style and my job is to make that picture in their minds of the look they desire and the look they have imagined, come to life. I think our industry is really fun and amazing. I knew that doing hair was something I could do forever and I am one of the lucky ones to say it is my profession and career. Weddings are my focus and it is something that I can not get enough of. We're so lucky we get to touch so many lives, and I think that's something that isn't taken seriously as how much we affect people. I think that's a beautiful thing and I'm so glad to be a part of it!!
Hi!! I've been in the hair/beauty industry for 18 years. I always knew hair was my calling since I was a little girl. I could never imagine doing anything else with my life. I love my job because i get to make every person who sits in my chair feel great about themselves. I meet so many new people and hear great stories. It's such a great feeling to make someone feel beautiful by changing their hair! I've learned from some of the best in the business...Bumble and Bumble, Sonja Dove, and Nick Arrojo. I've trained at the Wella Studio and Hope for Beauty. I'm certified with Brazilian Blowout. Recently had the pleasure of training with Jenny Strebe, from Confessions of a Hairstylist. I love to go to classes to stay current on the latest trends and techniques. My strengths are definitely multi dimensional color, updos, and formal styles. I love being able to be creative.
