Ali Keys

Ali Keys

Owner, Aesthetician

Our fearless leader started working at Renew in 2010 and loved it so much she bought the place two years later. After growing up on Bainbridge (she’s a fourth-generation islander – the ferry terminal flagpole is even dedicated to her grandfather!),

she graduated from the Euro Institute of Skin Care in 2006 and earned an aesthetics license in 2009. Ali is an expert in all types of skin care, waxing, and sugaring procedures, and is actually capable of making hair removal a pleasant experience. When she’s not catering directly to clients, Ali is doing a little bit of everything to maintain a fun, friendly, supportive place for customers as well as employees. Ali has two kids, two dogs, and a seemingly endless supply of enthusiasm – for hiking, snorkeling, travel, whatever!

Aidan makes the magic happen by creating silky-smooth client experiences while also juggling a million details behind the salon scenes. One of her many superpowers is delivering answers to just about any customer question that pops up. She’s also a Bainbridge Island native, so she’s got lots of handy local knowledge too.

When she’s not working her magic here at the salon, you might find her on a running trail or a yoga mat or anywhere she can celebrate health and wellness. Lisa has two sons and two dogs and oodles of satisfied customers.

Laura Pirk

Laura Pirk

Lead Hair Stylist, Davines Educator

When you sit in Laura’s chair, you’ll get way more than just a great hairstyle. You’ll get conversation, laughter, friendship, and the type of confidence boost that comes from looking and feeling beautiful.

Born in Southern California, Laura grew up on Bainbridge Island.

She graduated from the Northwest Hair Academy, a Paul Mitchell partner school, in 2009. She’s also completed the Davines Educator Training program, which enhances her natural talents as a stylist. She joined Renew in 2012. Laura thinks of her clients and co-workers like family. We all benefit from her thoughtfulness, her creativity, and her silliness. Next time you’re in, you might catch her doubled over laughing after jumping out and scaring one of us, which she thinks is totally hysterical.

Kelsie George

Kelsie George

Senior Hair Stylist

Kelsie has been making our customers’ gorgeous hair look even more gorgeous since 2016. After attending Evergreen Beauty College and obtaining a license in cosmetology, she trained under Renew’s lead stylist, Laura Pirk, for several months when she first arrived.

Now she’s a friendly familiar face in the hair salon. Kelsie is amazingly thorough when it comes to meeting her clients’ needs. She listens to every single word about what they want, then bends over backwards to make sure they’re happy with what they get. Kelsie insists that her favorite part of her job is making people feel beautiful, but she’s also pretty good at playing practical jokes on Laura, which, fortunately, Laura thinks is hilarious.
