Davee Troublefield

Paul Mitchell The School Gastonia graduate, 2010

Graduated from Paul Mitchell the School Gastonia in 2010, Davee has continued his amazing journey in the beauty industry. 

Davee Troublefield is an award winning makeup artist, hair stylist, beauty expert and personality.

For over ten years, he has impacted the international beauty landscape. Innovative makeup artistry, precision hairstyling and a rarefied style concept define Troublefield as a pioneering businessman. But it is the allure of his personality—charming yet honest with an approach that wins over clients—that elevates his reputation to that of a true artist and tastemaker of the highest order.

Born in the south, Davee rapidly rose through the beauty ranks by training with a roster of notable beauty professionals, such as Laura Mercier and Smashbox Studios . Early on, Troublefield’s revolutionary approach to beauty was clear. Instead of performing just artistry, Davee integrates all things stylish to deliver a total experience. His philosophy?  Beauty & Style is secondary— learning to love the person you are is the first step toward inner confidence. After observing a client, Davee designs a style that maximizes her attributes and enhances without over-doing it.

Davee Troublefield's modern haircuts, innovative color services, and expertise in haircare continue to evolve from constant education, and this master cosmetologist draws inspiration from the past, present, and future.  He uses his makeup brush like a magic wand, creating flawless beauty looks as diverse as the clients in his chair. Add in the mix extraordinary customer service and a sharp sense of style, and Troublefield sets a new benchmark in the beauty industry.


Guliza Covalinski

Paul Mitchell The School Gastonia graduate, 2012

I am a Paul Mitchell trained hair stylist and makeup artist working at Eclipso Salon and Day Spa in Hickory, NC. I love to create new styles and cuts. I specialize in up-do's, Prom, wedding, and formal styles. I also provide airbrush, makeup services, and additionally I travel to customers. I am available for fashion shows, photo shoots, weddings, special events, films, prints, and much more. 

I believe that a quality hair service begins with a quality consultation— so that you get the perfect cut and style and are 100% delighted with the results.
