pure focus salon


In the year 2000, I graduated with Honors from the Aveda Institute of Minneapolis for Massage Therapy and Spa Esthetics.  Here I was educated in several different aspects of bodywork including Swedish Massage, Neuromuscular Therapy, Trigger Point Therapy, Reflexology, Myofacial Release, Aromatherapy, Deep Tissue Massage, Pregnancy Massage, as well as Hydrotherapy.  Upon graduation I was hired at Nouveau Salon in Siren, WI where I worked for seven years with wonderful people and for a wonderful employer.

In 2002 I was apprenticed by the owner of Nouveau, Jill Alden (an incredibly skilled hairstylist) in Barbering and Cosmetology while studying theory at Chippewa Valley Technical College.  Since then I have continued my education and have learned many advanced cutting and coloring techniques.  I’m still searching for that special customer who’s brave enough to let me apply the more extreme techniques.  Anyone?

In 2007 (a husband & a couple kids later) I opened Pure Focus Salon so that I could be closer to home & more available to my family.  It’s been awesome!  My shop is located in a secluded section of my mom’s house, and what I really love about it is when guests come in, it’s a one-on-one situation.  No worries about other conversations happening across the station, no worries about people seeing you with a head full of foil or after a facial with no makeup.  It’s private.

2011……  come in and find out for yourself.

2014.....I now have a 2nd location at Life’s Journey in Balsam Lake.  Services offered include massage therapy, skin care/facials, waxing, manicures and pedicures.

Thank you for visiting my site and I hope to see you soon,

Tennille Kamish
