Ciara Livingston-Pigg (Associate Stylist) My name is Ciara, and for as long as I can remember, I have been obsessed with hair. I self-taught and practiced on myself with up-dos and braids for years, until… I discovered hair color! Oh, this magical thing intrigued me, so I decided right then and there, this was the career for me. During school at Genesis Career College I found my niche, painting hair.  I love the way the colors mix together perfectly and the way it has such a soft, silky texture on freshly cut hair. To top it all off, my heart literally twinges with bliss when a client cries because “this is the first time [she] has felt beautiful in a long time,” as she is leaving my chair. I also enjoy a good challenge such as color correction and creative colors.  I recently attended Cosmoprof Fashion Focus in Nashville to further enhance my skills. Because of my love of learning new techniques, I will be advancing my education at every opportunity to better serve my guests.
Nancy Lenora Engeloff (Senior Stylist) is a Jacksonville, Florida native. In 2007, Nancy moved to Tennessee, which, little did she know, would start her cosmetology adventure. High school offered an elective cosmetology class which Nancy found interest in. She began shadowing on weekends at a retirement home where making the residents feel good inside and out sparked the fire to a career. Nancy trained at Paul Mitchell The School in Murfreesboro, TN and her first job was doing on site hair in Nashville for photo shoots of musicians and elegant weddings. Nancy has been with Loxx since its opening and has grown with the facility. When not serving clients, she enjoys nature, music, family and art. Nancy has a passion to make her guests feel gorgeous by designing styles to match their lifestyles and she takes pride in listening and understanding client’s needs while respecting the health of their hair.

She loves expressing her artistic talents through hair painting and textured cuts and proudly puts her own touch into every cut and color she does. Shannon has been an artist for 7 years, which inspired her to compete in hair and make-up competitions while in high school where she won 3rd place in the state for aesthetics. After high school she completed her license at Genesis Career College and completed her associate training under Master Barber Tracey Franklin. Shannon enjoys keeping up with the latest trends in fashion, hair and make-up. “A true artist wears it, walks it and breathes it!”
Alex Pineda (Nail Technician) Hello, my name is Alex Pineda.  I received my nail technician license shortly after my training at Tennessee College of Applied Technology in Livingston.  For me, nails have always been more than just a hobby, it was a passion I knew I could build a fun and exciting career in. One of my favorite services to provide is a relaxing spa pedicure.  Although not always glamorous, it does more than just put a smile on my face, it makes me feel like I’m helping those who need it when they need it most.  From assisting those who can no longer reach what they once could to providing a soothing atmosphere to just sit back and relax.  Stop by and let my spa pedicure be the highlight of your week!
