My path to becoming a cosmetologist is not the typical road traveled. I went to college with the aspiration to become a communications coordinator. After getting a career job in the field, I realized that it did not fulfill my deepest career desires. Since I was a little girl, I have always enjoyed making people feel beautiful. With this in mind, I made the drastic decision to give up my career in communications and go to cosmetology school at Bayshire Beauty Academy in Saginaw.

The biggest satisfaction I have gained in my career is making a positive change in people’s lives. I love having the ability to utilize my talents to make clients feel vitalized, relaxed, and confident. My current expertise include but are not limited to event hair, makeup, and eyelash extensions. I look forward to the possibility of meeting you and bringing out your inner beauty!


Amanda’s Reviews


Amanda always does an amazing job listening to what I am trying to achieve with my hair and explaining how she plans to make it happen.  She is friendly and knowledgeable and I would recommend her for anyone looking for a great colorist or stylist!  ~Angie Emerson


I loved coming to Serenity Spa.  Amanda was wonderful.  What a treat, and I love my hair.  Thanks, I will be back. ~Lisa Coleman


Amanda gave me a fantastic mani/pedi just in time for my trip to Puerto Rico. I’m more of a neutral color kind of girl, but she assured me we could try a color and if I didn’t like it we’d try something else. As you can see, I stuck with the color and got so many compliments on it while on vacation. I definitely found my new nail salon!  ~Bianca J.


I came in with a horrendous haircut and Amanda went above and beyond to fix it.  She is a clever and talented artist.  ~Brad Ford


Very pleasant, fun, and can handle nail art!  Loved the Salon and will be back again. ~Angela Brooks


Amanda is the best.  She has never steered me wrong and makes my hair vision come to life.  ~Jessica W.


I enjoyed my pedi.  Amanda is amazing! XOXO  ~Sharquita W.
