Working at the salon for so many years has given her much insight to the exhilarating changes the industry takes on!

"It's exciting to develop these new ideas in our business, and very fulfilling to motivate the Reflections team. I love my staff; they are amazing, talented, honest, hard-working, and extremely fun to be around!"

Amy graduated from Ontario back in the fabulous '80s! During her time away from the salon, she enjoys traveling, playing golf and attending musical shows and sporting events with her husband. A recent trip to Guatemala deeply touched her life, and she plans to return there multiple times to volunteer for an on-going humanitarian project.  She is humbled that God has extremely blessed her life with a supportive and wonderful family which includes not only her husband Bryan, but also her two beautiful children Bryson and Anna, a loving daughter-in-law Jenn, who she claims as her own child, and two wonderful granddaughters Braylee and Josephine!

Kay Cockley-Kosht

Kay has always called Reflections Hair Design home; before she was a stylist she was a client for both hair and nails! "I always knew I wanted to be a stylist and loved coming to this place because it had such an amazing vibe." She grew up local on a farm with her family with whom she is very close. After graduating high school from Lexington, Kay took some college classes but knew she would eventually take a career in the beauty industry, so she moved to Columbus where she then graduated from Paul Mitchell The School. She states that school was one of her favorite experiences, as she got to experience so many fun classes and events through them, including traveling to Las Vegas for a 3 day convention of classes with top educators!

Kay has a love for traveling. She and her mom have had some amazing trips together, including driving out west with her parents and sister, beaching in Bermuda, driving the coast of California and hiking some of National Geographic's top hikes in Utah. "I love my family beyond words, and getting to do fun things with them is something I am so thankful for!"

Kay also is a dog mom of two Boxers (Tarkington and Teegan). She enjoys spending her days off at Mohican with them or walking through the farm and taking them on car rides. When Kay isn't working, traveling, or spending time with her dogs or family she is a typical girl who loves shopping, spending time with her best friends and spending time in the gym

Crystal received her cosmetology license in 2002; and in 2006, she began working at Reflections Hair Design. Her goal is to create an environment in which her clients are at ease to express themselves and their ideas. More than anything, she wants her clients to love the way they look. Making other people feel great about themselves is only part of the satisfaction that Crystal gets from her job. She is drawn to learning new techniques and styles and is always challenging herself so that each haircut is better than the last. She continues to grow and learn by attending numerous advanced educational classes. Her talents include a wide variety of cutting, styling, coloring, perming, and facial/body waxing services.

Ashley Harrison

Ashley has been doing hair for over nine years. Unlike a lot of stylists, Ashley did not know life would lead her to a career in hair design! She has always loved art, and for a couple of years tried all different art forms in college. Realizing that college was not satisfying her dreams, she started a new path in hair school, and found her passion!

Ashley did hair for several years here in Mansfield, then decided to try a change of scenery and moved to Annapolis, Maryland.

Vicki Jobe -Myers

Vicki has been with the Reflections team for 34 years. She knew in 6th grade that she wanted to be a hairdresser...because every time she would go to the salon to get her hair done, she never liked it, so she decided when she grew up she would be a hairdresser and style peoples hair so they DID like it!

Vicki is a very honest person, so if a client brings in a picture and it won't quite fit their hair type, or it is more maintenance than they realize, she will tell them, and help direct them to a style that best fits them. When Vicki first began in the business, she attended many advanced classes, and still continues to grow in education. Vicki's favorite cut is anything that has stack to it! No one should ever think they have learned everything.

An instructor once told her, "if you think you have learned everything, it is time to get out of the industry!" So, with that said, Vicki is still learning, even from the younger members of our team. Her goal when she comes to work is to have clients leave feeling good about themselves! Vicki loves the team she works with at Reflections!

Vicki is passionate about teaching young girls to twirl the baton. She's been teaching baton since 1975, and currently directs the Galion Tigerettes Baton Corps, and is the High School Majorette Advisor. She couldn't imagine her life without these programs!

Vicki lived most of her life in Galion, and is a very big fan of small towns! She is a member of St. Paul United Methodist Church. Vicki and her husband both sing in the choir and are involved in lots of committees. She is very involved in the food pantry outreach program at her church.

Vicki's family is a big part of her life. They help make her who she is! Her dad passed away 8 years ago, and he is so missed... he was such a wonderful role model. She talks to her mom many times daily... they are very close! Vicki loves to travel to New York City where her oldest brother and his family live, but she is also blessed to have her younger brother and his family close so they can visit often! She has 3 wonderful step children who all have great spouses and all live in the area. They get to see each other often!

Vicki hopes she can be remembered for her love of life. God has blessed her so much with good family and friends!

Jill Johnson

Jill has always known she would be a stylist. She's sure her mom would agree since all of her dolls had bangs and all her mom's curling irons were always missing! Jill's passions can be summed up in three easy words -- hair, animals and animals! They are two things that she has always enjoyed. She loves the feeling of coming to work; but it doesn't feel like work—it's enjoyment. The same goes for her pets. They are not pets or animals—they are her happiness. Who doesn't love being greeted b floppy ears and a wagging tail!

A perfect day or weekend for Jill would be camping with her boyfriend and dogs and doing some hiking. She loves being outdoors, whether it's warm or cold. She has lived in Mansfield for the majority of her life, but would love to eventually move a little more south. Jill loves music and movies, and any form of live entertainment, Broadway musicals, stand-up comedy, you name it—she enjoys it.

Jill would like to be remembered as talking until she takes her very last breath—always smiling, always loving and always happy.

Nikki Kovinchick

Nikki has been a hairstylist since 1999 and has been at Reflections since 2001. She attended the State Beauty Academy in Marion, Ohio after graduating from Lexington High School with a 4.2 GPA. Nikki is known as "Nik" to her friends and family and is a dedicated Cincinnati Bengals fan. She says this is a contributing factor to her "sudden onset of weekend depression from September to January."

Nikki considers herself to be very creative and loves to express her fun creative side with hairstyling as an outlet. On days she is not at work, you can usually find her at a local sports bar with a Bud Light or a Rum & Diet Coke tracking her Fantasy Football points with her husband and best friend, Freddy.

When Nikki is not working or out with her husband or friends, she is doing hour-long interval workouts and loving on her rott, Lita. She also considers "Team Reflections" as family and says she feels very fortunate and blessed to have worked with such an awesome, fun and supportive group of gals for such a long time.

Melissa Lehnhart

Melissa started cutting hair at age 5: dolls, Barbie's and her own bangs. By 6th grade, she was trimming her own hair along with family and friends—although not always successfully! She loved to use hot rollers and the curling iron on friends and family whenever they came to visit. By junior high, she knew she wanted to go to Pioneer Career Center for the cosmetology program. Before she graduated, she was called to interview at Reflections where she worked under Linda Horning for a couple of months. Melissa has never looked back and still has the same station, #4.

Melissa enjoys keeping her clients updated in styles and colors that are easy to maintain and loves razor cutting. She makes people look their best and encourages them to do the same. Melissa loves being a hairstylist and cannot imagine doing anything else. She is passionate about her family, faith and others. She also enjoys watching her children in their activities, spending time with her friends and family, cooking, grilling and gardening.

Melissa grew up in the country and went to Lexington schools. After graduating, she married and moved to Lucas where her husband, Kevin, grew up on a farm. Melissa is a junior high leader for junior high girls at Berean Baptist Church; and in the fall/winter, she volunteers at Mt. Zion food bank.

Things Melissa cannot live without are mascara, eyeliner, lipstick and the Bible. She would like to be remembered as one who encourages others and her love for the Lord.

Susayn enjoys all aspects of the beauty industry although her biggest passion is the art of Balayage (hair painting). It gives her such freedom to customize the color for each client, and to give such a natural look and grow out between appointments. Even in her spare time she also loves furthering her education with continuing education classes and hair shows.

Susayn enjoys fun outings with her children including fairs, festivals, the carousel downtown and the park. As a child she was a gymnast for 15 years and still loves to keep up with all the USA Gymnastics events!

Here are some fun facts...My husband Tim and I have been married for 25 years, and have been blessed with one son Lee. We attend the First Church of God. We enjoy spending time as a family.  In the summer we love being at the Dragstrip watching our son and many of our friends race.  I also enjoy running, which I have an amazing run club that I run with (The Shelby YMCA run club)!  I've been doing this for a little over a year and can proudly say that I've completed five half marathons and various five and 10K's!

She received her Cosmetology License from Nationwide Beauty Academy in Columbus and began her career at Reflections in 1988. Lisa styled hair for the first 12 years; and the last 16 years, she has focused on Customer Service and Salon Management.

Customer Service comes natural to Lisa and finds it very important that all new and loyal patrons feel welcome during their Reflections visits and are completely satisfied with their experiences. Calling each guest by their name and subconsciously making them smile with every salon visit is something she strives for. It's just in Lisa's nature.-- she has been accused of being too energetic and happy all of the time!

Lisa is also Wedding Coordinator for the salon. She assists brides in scheduling their bridal party for hair, make-up and nail services. She finds it very fulfilling to take part in making the guests feel beautiful for their special occasions. Reflections is a great place to work when the salon is busy and buzzing with people. She loves it!!

Their daughter Meg is a registered nurse at Grant Medical Center, and son Mitch is a sophomore in college working towards an engineering degree. Her biggest passion in life is being a mom.

Lisa’s most enjoyable time is spent with family and friends. She is an avid fan of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Cleveland Indians and claims basketball as her favorite sport. Lisa and her family are members of The Most Pure Heart of Mary Church and true Shelby Whippets at heart!

Lisa's relaxation time includes outdoor jogging, tending to her water garden, and "date nights" with Kevin. She always looks forward to visiting Meg in Columbus or having her home for a weekend. The humor in her house comes from their adorable but very silly Bichon Frosty. She keeps her laughing!

What most people don't know about Lisa, is she rocks at solving difficult level Sudoku puzzles, was born with a tooth which was pulled by a dentist when she was one-week-old, and must have Extra Firm Hold Hairspray and peanut butter in order to survive.
