Dominique's first experience in a salon was as a little girl, accompanying her mother to her hair appointments. She was intrigued and loved seeing how happy her mother would feel whenever she visited her hair stylist, Regina. Sensing her fascination, Regina gave Dominique combs and rollers so that she could “practice” on her dolls.
And that's where the inspiration and enthusiasm began. Over the years, Dominique absorbed a lot watching her mother and the other women get their hair done. Regina was generous with teaching and guidance. As Dominique matured into a young woman, she knew that Cosmetology was her calling, so she attended the Bullard Havens Technical High School in Connecticut. There, as an academic high school student, Dominique began her training in Cosmetology. Once she graduated high school and became a licensed Cosmetologist, Dominique immediately went to work for Regina, her old friend and mentor. But understanding the importance of a well-rounded education, while working for Regina, Dominique also attended college graduating with a Bachelors Degree in Psychology.
Now, after more than a decade of being involved in the beauty industry, it is safe to say that Dominique has developed her own amazing style! Her work has been published in magazines and featured on television; and recently Dominique was introduced to the fashion industry during New York Fashion Week 2016. Dominique specializes in all things beauty … hair styling, cutting, coloring, hair extensions, lash extensions, makeup application and more.
Dominique’s ultimate goal is to continue doing what she loves while providing a relaxing, luxurious, happy experience for her guests in her own salon. She is thrilled to be opening Salon Rochelle!
I had Dominique and she was excellent. She took great care of me. Also was very friendly! You do get what you pay for.

Dominique is an amazingly talented artist. I have been fortunate to work with her on two occasions and she created two drastically different styles. The first time, she straightened my naturally curly hair and the second time she pinned it up into an edgy mohawk. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

AWESOME! Highly professional, very friendly, and really wants to please all customers. She listens to any concerns or comments and makes necessary changes quickly based on your needs! Dominique is truly amazing. Location is clean and music selection is great, too. (haha)! You can't go wrong!!
