Aaron Perkins is the owner of Face Your Day Salon. Aaron perfected his craft in larger markets such as Miami and New York City, where he worked at Vogue Magazine. Aaron works with high profile clientele, luxury weddings, and regional, national, and international pageants. Aaron also writes regular beauty columns for local publications and is a judge for state preliminary pageants.

Polishing the Rock for me means understanding the potential in everyone. We help others see things that sometimes are lost or has never been discovered in some instances. Beauty is passion and passion is beautiful. Especially for me and my team. Our dedication is to provide an atmosphere, not only in skill, but love in order to create the perfect experience.
