Tasha joined the Avanti Family in 1997 with high expectations to grow her career in the beauty industry. Receiving her Cosmetology license and certifications in 1995, she started off in the industry working at a few small salons, performing both hair and nail services. During those few early years in the industry, Nail Artistry seemed to pull at her heart strings and soon became her passion going forward in her career. Avanti was the new and coming Salon & Spa in New Jersey in 1997 – bringing the feel and talent of a New York Salon & Spa right into a suburbia backyard. Tasha started her career at Avanti as a Nail Artist with intentions to only keep growing from there. Throughout her years at Avanti, she learned about so many aspects of the business…the technician version as well as the business one. She self-taught her way through many aspects of the salon and spa industry with help of her mentor, owner Luda Conti. Tasha also completed and attended many business trainings and seminars throughout her years at Avanti, such as – Raylon’s Champ Camp, Intercoiffure, Inspiring Champions, Top Gun Front Desk and Serious Business … just to name a few. With over 26 years of industry experience, strong self-discipline and an eye for detail and perfection … Tasha became more than a technician at Avanti – she became a part of the foundation as General Manager. Not only learning strategies in business, but also experiencing lessons in life that continue to shape who she is today and using these learnings to become the best possible version of herself for tomorrow.
