Pittsburgh, PA


Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pa Stephanie Truchan had a thirst for creation at a young age. Self taught skills and the ability to recreate any hairstyle photo was recognized by her friends in high school. She quickly began testing her hair styling capabilities. After many years of doing stage hair and makeup for high school musicals and summers with Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera Stephanie decided to get her Beauty degree at the Pittsburgh Beauty Academy. Without knowing her passion for transformation would land her a full scholarship she realized a great career lied ahead. Working in a few great salons in the Pittsburgh area she found herself at age twenty five wanting more and branched out by doing freelance hair and makeup with the love of seeing her work in print. That year Stephanie knew if she wanted a freelance career she would need to be in a position to make her own hours. August of 2006 is when she started Salon Nolas Inc. A five hundred square foot salon studio in the basement of her home. It was simple and perfect for her make her way in the industry. Present day, Salon Nolas relocated to a store front in west view, about fifteen minutes north of the city. Stephanie Truchan is a successful business owner of nine years and has been a licensed beautician of fifteen. Her motivation and dedication to her craft is one of a kind.
