CJ HARRIS - Stylist/Matrix Educator

CJ has been a stylist in Gaston County for 9 years. IF you ask her she says that’s the “legal years” since her friends would ask her to do their hair before she even knew she wanted to attend cosmetology school. She is incredibly passionate about this industry. There isn’t an area she feels is more important to her than others. The most important thing is to make someone feel comfortable, safe, relaxed, and full of laughter during their hair dates.

SARAH PAPP - Stylist

Sarah has been a stylist at Les Travaux Salon since October of 2017. She is a graduate of Aveda Institute Charlotte. She is originally from Las Vegas, NV and moved to Gastonia in 2011. She has a certification in Hot Heads hair extensions. She chose this industry because she loves to give people confidence. She feels like a different hair color, hair cut or even a spray tan can achieve that boost that someone may need.

DONNIE SHUFORD - Stylist/Matrix Educator

Donnie is a very passionate cosmetologist! He has been behind the chair for 7 years and continues to learn something new everyday. When you love what you do, your career becomes your life.

Donnie has been a Matrix Artistic Educator for 3 years now and is constantly looking for new opportunities to grow.

Donnie loves coffee and music to make him dance! Nothing is better than positive vibes!

AMBER KISSINGER - Stylist/Artist

My name is Amber Kissinger. I have been a stylist at Les Travaux Salon since August 2018. I am originally from Baltimore, MD but I have made North Carolina my home for the past 16 years.

I graduated with my degree in cosmetology from Paul Mitchell the School and have been loving what I do ever since. I am a certified eyelash technician with a true passion for the service I provide. Being a stylist is like being an artist that gets to see her canvases come to life. My clients are far more than a name on an appointment book, they become friends that I look forward to spending time with. Which makes what I do a passion and not just a job.


Hello, my name is Anna Carnes. I have been doing hair for 18 years. I attended Carolina Academy which is now known as Paul Mitchell. I started my career at Carmen Carmen in charlotte and went through their extensive training program for a year. A few years later I came back to Gaston County and worked at Burton Hills for a year then at Salon Prestige for 12 years. I have been at Les Travaux Salon since June of 2017 and have loved it ever since.

I currently reside in Belmont with my husband Chris, daughter Lauren, and my yorkie Sassy. In my spare time I enjoy reading, going to the beach, and watching my daughter dance competitively. I also love Japanese food and sweet tea!

I specialize in cuts, color, formal hair, and waxing. My favorite hairstyle to execute is a “bob” as it takes precise cutting! I am also certified in Brazilian Blowouts which is a trending service.

Our salon proudly uses Matrix and Redken products. I hope you will consider me as your next hair stylist as I love to share my passion! Whatever the hairstyle, I will strive to give great results.
