My favorite saying is "If it doesn't challenge you, it won't change you." I took on a big challenge several years ago when I moved to Richmond from the West Coast.  A loyal Mango guest referred me to the salon and I started in the Fresh Talent program to advance my skills and grow my career. That was nearly five years ago. Now, the best part is being able to apply those skills and make a difference in our guest's lives. 

BIT ABOUT ME   I love to learn new beauty secrets and be up to date on the latest trends and techniques.  It's a perk of being a part of the beauty industry!

I've never had a bad experience with Destiny since I've been seeing her, for I guess a couple years now.

I was so pleased with the cut and blow dry today with Destiny. I was a walk-in customer and so happy that there was an opening!! I scheduled my color for two weeks later.


October 24,2016
Everyone was very polite, nice and friendly.


September 29,2016
The manager at the Short Pump location, Taylor Heck, deserves to be employee of the month! I got caught in one of the torrential storms on my way to the appointment and was completely drenched. She gave me a smock and put my pants and socks in the dryer for me --- she totally went above and beyond for me and I wanted to let you know you have a gem of an employee.


August 15,2016
Destiny is great. Will definitely be back. Thanks!


August 11,2016
This was my second time at Short Pump as I was going to Gayton Crossing. Since Destiny is now at Short Pump, I have moved also. Surprised to see that the employees at Short Pump are just as friendly and helpful. It is so nice to be welcomed when you walk in the door.


August 01,2016
I've seen Destiny twice and both times she has made my dreams come true. I have had nothing but good experiences at Mango.
