The Level System

Novel Stylist 


Designer Stylist

Lead Stylist

Master Stylist

Live Salon runs on a level system of stylists. It is not necessarily based off skill or time spent in industry but more so the stylists' demand of time. Guests may choose whatever stylist best fits there needs & budget. 

REMEMBER! We work as a team and you may book services with as many stylists as you would like. 

What does this mean for you?

With a tiered pricing structure, all clients can have services rendered at Live Salon no matter their financial status. As each one of us here specialize a little more in certain areas, one stylist may fit the needs of your color and another, your lashes.


How does this help the stylists at Live Salon?

We are in the business of empowerment. Our stylists have their own personal goals and salon standards needing to be met. They track these goals and we review the stylists every month. This allows our stylists to always strive for more and continue to grow for themselves, the salon, & their guests. As these goals are met, advancements, promotions, and price increases follow.  


Jalynn Knopsnider

Designer Stylist | Colorist | Lash & Brow Technician 

Specialties: Blondes, Color Corrections, Lash & Brow Services

Jalynn has done hair and makeup for fun for as long as she can remember. She always wanted to be just like her mom who was also a stylist. When she was a little girl, she watched her mom work in the salon and knew immediately that working in the beauty industry was her calling. Seeing people smile when they leave her chair, knowing that they feel good about themselves is Jalynn's passion. Her goal is to be the best she can be and never stop learning nor striving for success. What truly makes her unique is that she truly loves making people who have been through some rough patches feel beautiful and "worth it" again. It is not about money for her, it is about that sort of gratification that makes her happy. Jalynn attended Bella Capelli in which she received Future Professional of the Month voted by the Staff Members. Jalynn is an amazing team member of LIVE SALON.

Jalynn is our hustler. Similar to Amanda, Jalynn's personality fits the mold of the salon. She's one tough cookie. She's honest, outgoing, and empowering. She has exceeded all expectations.
