David Miller has developed a reputation in Indianapolis/Carmel as the authority on cosmetic skin care and spa management, having been the first aesthetician to be inducted into Intercoiffure U.S.A, the most influential organization in the Beauty Industry. His knowledge of professional skin care was called upon by Indiana Governor Evan Bayh when he was asked to develop the curriculum for a separate skin care license in the state of Indiana for aesthetics. What followed was a seven year term on the Indiana Professional Licensing Board any many years of acting as an examiner for State Board aesthetic examinations. Mr. Miller is called upon regularly as an expert in the aesthetic field for clarifications, articles in professional publications, and industry related matters.

I specialize in all things curly. The reason I chose to to further my education and get certified in different curly cutting and styling techniques, is due to my own personal experience. Being biracial definitely has its pros and cons, one of them that stuck out to me the most was how my hair was cared for. When I was younger my hair was considered “to hard to manage”. Therefore the easiest style to do with my hair was to have it straightened every couple of weeks, and that was my routine for years. Understandably, that was then the “easiest” way to maintain my hair. The older I became and the more in touch I became with myself, I had a realization of going completely natural. Going natural means stopping any treatments that compromise the hair from its natural state. With all of that being said, my mission is to simplify natural hair. I would like each of my clients to have a routine personalized for them specifically. This will ensure a healthy and non stagnant routine, that will better their hair journey.

"Both David and Mary provide amazing service. They are always on time, listen to my requests, are friendly but professional. They offer more services and better service than any other salon I have visited."
