A recent desire to upgrade and remodel moved her to her current location in Renaissance-Farragut. The suite design offers much needed privacy for the image services offered. Her most recent inspiration is being approached to become a national educator with EVOLVE – a new company offering a wearable solution for women with thin hair or hair loss. Ms. Handel is certified to consult and install the “Volumizer “and to train other hair stylists to offer this semi-permanent hair solution to clients in the region. She added Follea European hair wigs to assist women with more advanced hairloss while staying true to offering women THE most natural options.
