 Beauty Technician Opens Salon

Julie Collier

Julie Collier has opened a new nail salon to join others at The Main Squeeze in Wake Forest.

Collier is a licensed nail technician and esthetician (beautician).

Originally from Lincoln, Nebraska, Collier moved to North Carolina in 2005 and splits her time between The Main Squeeze on Thursday, Friday, and Saturdays and Sheer Bliss in Durham on Mondays and Tuesdays.

She performs manicures, pedicures, facials, waxing and hair removal, eyelash and brow tinting, and eyelash extensions. She is also a certified Shellac professional, which means she is trained in all areas of correct protocol to apply and remove Shellac brand polishes.

She also offers Vinylux, which can last seven days or more without chipping and will become stronger with exposure to light. She is in the process of becoming a certified Minskys Eyelash Extensionist, which is a system in which the lash can be lengthened without interfering with growth.

Julie is especially grateful to her customers and co-workers both in Wake Forest and in Durham whom have helped her get to this wonderful place she is in her life and for the services she is able to provide to customers.

The Main Squeeze: 2010 South Main Street, #400, Wake Forest.
