Meet the Team
Owner, Stylist / Level 6
With over a decade of experience behind the chair, I find my love and passion for the industry is only continuously growing. I specialize in lived in bonding and extensions. I take pride in transforming women's looks with my skills honed over many years. Since being in the industry I have had the opportunity to travel the country for various technique classes, while also creating my own educational videos. My passion for business has led me to be the owner of the two salon locations here in Sycamore; MC Beauty and The Studio.
Confession: When I am not in the salon you can often find me late at night in my kitchen attempting to bake something new. My love for baking definitely outweighs my talent for it, taste testing my sweet treats is always "at your own risk."
**Megan is currently not taking any new clients. If you are a current client of hers and need to book an appointment, please contact the salon!**
Stylist / Level 1
Hello! My name is Mattea Elliot & I'm proud to be a hairstylist here at MC Beauty. Although I'm passionate about all things hair, I find myself most in my element when I'm giving someone that lived in blonde they've been dying for. I take pride in the face that I'm always passionate & hungry to grow. I'm very excited to see where my career will take me, & all the amazing people I will meet along the way.
When I'm not at the salon, you'll probably find me with my nose in a book, in the kitchen, spending time with loved ones, or working on achieving my green thumb (I'll have it someday).
Stylist / Level 3
Hi! I’m Hannah. From a young age, I’ve been drawn to hairstyling and love being able to express my creativity through my work. I love the endless opportunities to grow in the industry; and staying up to date with the latest trends and techniques to provide my guests with the best experience.
When I’m not doing hair, I'm usually spending time with my friends & family, listening to true crime podcasts, or getting lost watching satisfying hair videos.
Esthetician / Level 3
Sophia focuses on Holistic Based Facials and Peels, Dermaplaning, Waxing, Brow Laminations, Lash Lifts, and Tinting. MC Beauty is now using Green Envee, a plant active luxury skincare line designed to nourish your skin form the inside, out!
"My passion in skincare is to provide healing, nourishing skincare services that will help enhance your natural beauty and confidence"
My life has been nothing short of interesting. I have experienced it all. Loss, pain, beauty, miracles. I have really had to work at finding myself and my purpose. I always knew I wanted to work with people, I just didn't know what way. I have always enjoyed creating. I love painting, ceramics, and design. I also have a deep love for nature and an appreciation for life and all it's connection.
Being young I needed to jump into a direction that would allow me to be free in some of these areas of interest and I landed in cosmetology school. I was the happiest I had ever been. I got to work with all walks of life, be creative, and pull inspiration from the things I love.
I became a mom after only a few years in the industry and then quickly became a wife and mom of three. I have spent the last 9 years learning, growing, changing, adapting, and discovering more about myself and this life. I have been pulled in all directions but one path remains clear for me and that is doing hair.
This industry has been constant for me, a real anchor. I am so excited to continue creating. I'm so excited to work with people in a town that raised me and to curate confidence, beauty, and a sense of well-being. My name is Jess Haka and I can't wait to work with you.
Stylist / Level 1
Taylor's favorite part about being a stylist is seeing her clients walk out with more confidence and she loves to do blonding/lived-in color services.
"I recently heard a quote 'if you love it, let it go...if it comes back to you, it's forever' and I truly believe that with hair."
Stylist / Level 3
Hi, I'm Mollie. I fell into hair school when I was 20 because my mom told me I needed to be well rounded and doing makeup wasn't enough. I ended up loving the entire beauty industry and can't imagine my life otherwise!
Making people feel authentic to themselves in whatever hairstyle they dig really inspires me; I myself have been really into mullets and shags lately. When I'm not doing hair you can usually find me watching cartoons with my dogs, playing video games, or singing along with my favorite musicals.
If you ever need to find your inner funky goddess/god/spirit, just let me know and we can work something out!
Hello! My name is Maria and I am a associate here at MC Beauty. Ever since I was little, I wanted to have a job that had creativity but didn’t know what to look for. I stumbled upon the cosmotology program during high school and love what I chose!
Definitely was the best decision I made. I love to connect with clients and make people feel beauty from the inside and out. I’m so excited to see we’re my journey takes me!
Feel free to talk to me for anything you’ll need :)
I'm Myranda, and I'm 18 years old and currently in cosmetology school! For as long as I can remember I have always wanted to be a hairstylist and I'm living my dream doing this!
I currently am an assistant here at MC Beauty and it's the best environment. It has been great learning space. I have also been a dancer for a majority of my life and now work at a studio in Rochelle, Studio C Dance.
It's my passion to help people feel the best they can through both their hair and dance. I hope to grow into the best stylist I can be for all.
Salon Coordinator/Social Media Manager
My name is Morgan and I am the Salon Coordinator here at MC Beauty. If you get a call from the salon or see a post on our Instagram, it's probably me!
With my background in social media and marketing, it has been so fun learning all about the beauty industry from our stylists and estheticians. They are all kind, super talented, and have so much valuable information to offer their clients. It's my goal to make sure our online voice reflects that!
When I'm not at the salon, I'm usually at rehearsal preparing for my next musical or at the gym keeping myself healthy/coaching others (can you tell I like to stay busy?) But don't worry, I always find time to enjoy some cheesy reality TV with my sweet kitty cat on the couch!
I’m Mckayla, I’m 21 years old and I am currently in cosmetology school at debutantes in Dekalb! I just recently started interning at M.C. Beauty and I couldn’t be happier to be in such a beautiful space learning from beautiful people to perfect my craft in this amazing industry!
A little background of how I ended up choosing this career path…from the time I was 8 years old till 18 I was a competitive dancer and for those who know anything about the dance world its all the glitz and all the glam. I loved everything about it. From the makeup, hair, and the self care prep I would do the night before a competition.
I have always loved what the beauty industry represents and I love even more how the team here at M.C. Beauty represents it! and I can’t wait to built a clientele here once I graduate :)
