Kaci Dobbins

I graduated from the Medina County Career Center with my cosmetology license in 2016, and soon discovered that nails were my passion. I love to create art and beauty for people to carry with them everywhere they go. The most beautiful part of doing nails is that things are always changing, I am always learning and growing. My specialty is creating perfect gel nails that will last, and have people asking “where did you get your nails done?”

Kimell McCristall

I love learning new techniques as a  hair stylist but my favorite, and my specialty,  is color!  I love it all -highlights, low lights, ombre, shadow root, color melt, corrective color,  balayage.   There’s always something exciting new to learn.

I am passionate about helping people look their best.  I enjoy learning about my clients and interacting with them. I’ve learned over the years to listen to what people have to say and what they want. My goal is to have everyone feel special in my chair. When the client leaves, I want them to feel beautiful on the inside and out.

Outside of work, I am passionate about my dogs!  I love ALL animals and was almost going to be a dog trainer. But hair won out!  If I’m not walking my dogs, I am reading to relax when I have time.

I enjoy meeting new people and would love to have you in my chair!  Visit me at Docere!
