Cherie Maupin


My name is Cherie Maupin. I have been a licensed cosmetologist since 1999. I have been employed by Sophisticuts Salon & Spa since 2000. Thanks to my loyal clientele, I have become a Master Designer in the Salon.

Throughout my years in this industry, I have had extensive training in Chicago, LasVegas, New York and Wisconsin. One of my favorite moments came during my time spent on 5th Avenue in New York City, working with the head of Redken Professionals on color correction. It was an amazing learning experience. One I will never forget.

One of my favorite aspects of this industry is coloring and hair design. I love bringing the perfect haircut and beautiful coloring together. I also love doing perms, chemical straightenings, up-do's and styling. I also work as part of our spa doing manicures, pedicures and facials. I love this job and look forward to meeting you!

My favorite part of the beauty industry is the people. I love to meet new people and make new friends. I always love a challenge, whether it is corrective color or creating a whole new look for you. I specialize in dimensional color, razor cutting, and curly hair. I love to learn new techniques. I have attended educational events in New York City, Chicago and Wisconsin. I look forward to helping you create the perfect style you've always wanted.

Hi, my name is Alayna Blake, and I have been a part of the Sophisticuts Salon team since becoming a licensed cosmetologist in April of 2009!

My passion for this industry is ever growing! I have attended many shows and educational events to keep up on the ever changing trends. The best aspect of this industry is simply making you feel good about yourself. It is a passion of mine to see the smile on your face as we bring together your new look!

I am also an advocate and vice president of The Believe Foundation. The Believe Foundation is a non-profit organization which helps men and women whom have been diagnosed with cancer. We strive to help cancer patients and their families in any way that we can. Doing so we are helping them gain the strength to believe! Which in turn means, I have extensive training in wig customization, fitting, maintenance and personal care.

So, whether it is a new style, a fresh color, the perfect up-do for the big day or a life altering event, I am here to make you look and feel your best possible!

Along with all the aspects of hair, I love to spend time in our spa doing manicures, pedicures, facials, tanning, body treatments and waxing.

Hope to see you soon!
