Live Salon runs on a level system of stylists. It is based on something other than skill or time spent in the industry but more on the stylists' time demand. Guests may choose whatever stylist best fits their needs & budget. 

REMEMBER! We work as a team; you may book services with as many stylists as possible. 

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. However, as each of us here specializes 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 personal goals and salon standards that need to be met. They track these goals, and we review the stylists every month. Our stylists then strive for more and continue to grow for themselves, the Salon, & their guests. As these goals are met, advancements, promotions, and price increases follow. 

Live Salon values unity. When you reserve your appointment with a specific stylist, know that they will perform the core of the services but will have teammates assist in the services rendered to improve customer service. 

We are also a teaching and training salon and value that stylists can learn from some of the best. In addition, we have amazing artists and guests who will grant these new beauty industry professionals the confidence needed to deliver impeccable work and service. 

We are a family here. The conversations flow through the Salon with every guest and every artist, lending a helping hand, making suggestions and recommendations for all, and serving our guests better by having unity.

It helps us and our guests emulate our culture, motto, and belief to live beautifully, confidently, and empower.

Jalynn Knopsnider

Salon Manager | Lead Artist Level 2 |

Couture Colorist |


Jalynn has done hair and makeup for fun for as long as she can remember. She always wanted to be just like her mom, a stylist. When she was a little girl, she watched her mom work in the salon and instantly knew that working in the beauty industry was her calling. Seeing people smile when they leave her chair, knowing they feel good about themselves, is Jalynn's passion. Her goal is to be the best she can be and never stop learning or striving for success.

What truly makes her unique is that she genuinely 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 that sort of gratification that makes her happy. Jalynn attended Bella Capelli, where she received Future Professional of the Month voted by the Staff Members. Jalynn is a fantastic team member of LIVE SALON. She has been with the company for 4 years. 

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, exceeding all expectations. This made her a perfect salon manager for LIVE SALON. She is an inspiration and a true leader. She has always been driven towards continuing her education in not only technical skills but in leadership and salon industry business management. She offers the team a new perspective. She helps support the staff to hit their dream goals, ensure impeccable customer service and relations, and help promote Live Salon's unique vision and mission.

Jalynn is also a mom of a beautiful daughter. She is raising her to be just as driven, confident, and empowered as she is. Jalynn will be able to leave a legacy of drive, passion, determination, & resiliency.

Vanessa Bortz

Education Lead | Artistic Designer | Couture Colorist | Extensionist |

Bridal Specialist & Coordinator

Lash, Brow, Tan, & Makeup Artist

Since Vanessa was a young child, she wanted to be a hairstylist. One of her fondest memories was helping her grandmother with her roller sets. She has been active in the cosmetology field for 16 years. She pushes herself to learn more about innovative techniques and new products as they will help meet her client's needs. She has advanced knowledge in color, cutting & texturizing techniques, and product use.

Vanessa has two children, and one bonus daughter,  who are her biggest motivators and what makes her continually strive for more. She & her family participate in Relay for Life every year, which fits right in with Live Salon's desire to touch more than just hair (or lashes) but the entire community. She is passionate in all aspects of her life. 

She embarked on a new chapter in her career and life, returning to school for her Cosmetology Teaching License. She has officially obtained that license from the Pennsylvania State Board of Cosmetology. She also has started her training to become a Wella Color Expert and Surface Hair Insider & Educator. Combining that with her nurturing personality, she was the perfect candidate for our leadership position of Education Lead. She helps our new stylists and supports all staff in continuing their education. 

We love Vanessa's skills and the experience she brings. It is her time to shine, and we hope Live Salon & the clients she has can help her finally reach her dreams.

Bianca has quickly become a valuable asset to the Live Salon team. She has been a part of the team for almost 2 years. Bianca's personality fits right into the culture we share. She is personable and quickly makes her guests feel right at home with her. She makes you feel like you have been her best friend for years.

Bianca started this venture in the cosmetology field a smidge later than most, but that has yet to hinder her. On the contrary, she is more driven than ever to prove to herself and the world around her that she, too, can make it. Naturally, we value such drive and perseverance. 

She is never afraid to try new things. Since arriving at Live Salon, she has gained many new skill sets that only help her deliver exceptional customer service. In addition, she is knowledgeable in our retail and can easily guide her guests in using products that best fit their needs and make recommendations for other services to up-level the experience.

Bianca is a mom of two lovely children, and she must show that it takes grit, risk, and resiliency to have a sense of self and to make your dreams come true. 

She is a Bella Capelli Beauty Academy graduate, ready to set forth on the path to living beautifully, confidently, and empowering herself and others. We are thrilled to have her as a part of the team and to be able to watch her grow before our very eyes.

Lash, Brow, & Tan Artist

Bella may be a young team member, but she is a huge asset! She will always greet you with a smile as you walk into our salon. She has such a pleasant and welcoming personality. Her talent goes well above her age. 

Bella is a Latrobe Area High School senior and local vocational school graduate. We long awaited her graduation. Bella and her family were long-time clients of Amanda, and we were so excited to have her as a part of our team as a stylist. LIVE SALON hired her while she was still in high school as an assistant because we saw the immense promise with her and for her career in the beauty industry. We were thrilled to watch her grow into a young woman and artist.

Bella is always striving for more knowledge in this industry. She pushes herself outside of her comfort zone. Her drive is something to be envious of; we should all aspire to have that kind of dedication.

It has given us such pleasure helping her through cosmetology school. She has grown so much before our very eyes. Thank you to our valued guests for making her feel welcomed and supported by allowing her to assist in their appointments. This has allowed her to grow quicker than we all imagined. 

Bella has recently become certified in lash and hair extensions and is thrilled to be able to extend her service offerings to her guests. She is also highly knowledgeable about our product lines and can offer home care to ensure the looks she creates last long after her guests leave her chair.
