Emily Bellaefiore-Dahleen

Master Stylist & Makeup Artist

  • For an appointment, call Emily at 630-698-1120.

Emily has carried her Cosmetology license since 2002. Over that time, she amassed very diverse experiences including the role of an outside sales consultant for a Regional Beauty Distributor, a natural nail technician, professional Makeup Artist and of course her time behind the chair. She truly has a passion for the beauty industry, as evidenced by the quality and creativity of her work.


Over the years she’s found that true joy in her work comes from the time spent with the Brides to be and Bridal Parties. The reward that these experiences provide is too great to express. She credits much of her success and love of her craft to all the wonderful people she has had the opportunity to work with along the way. Each and every client and business encounter had offered her a chance to further learn and grow. Her desire to learn and grow is a constant drive, pushing her to expand her knowledge to its limits and making her the most complete Cosmetologist for her clients needs.


In her own words, “ The real reward is being a part of what makes someone feel beautiful and confident with whom they are, I couldn’t imagine a career in anything else
