Sandi Graziani

Owner/ Master Stylist

My love for the beauty industry began as a young girl cutting and creating styles on my dolls. That love has continued for 28 years. Through education and hard work  I built my future in the field of cosmetology and opened DomAlena's  Hair & Nail Lounge in2009.
I am passionate about utilizing my creativity and understanding the individual needs of my clients.
As a stylist I, have enjoyed building relationships, enhancing the beauty of my clients and bringing a smile to their faces. I not only want to recreate your outer appearance, but want a part in helping you feel beautiful and confident on the inside as well. 

I am a master stylist in all aspects of hair and nail design, with a specialty in color, foil highlighting, and corrective color. Through continued education, I keep up to date with the latest trends to ensure all of my  clients receive the updated styles that fit their personality.

When not in the salon I enjoy spending time with my husband Angelo, and two children Dominic & Alena. I enjoy being out in the sunshine, gardening, relaxing on the beach, and reading a good book.

In addition to my passion as a stylist, I am also an avid animal lover, taking an active role in many rescue groups in my community. I have fostered and rehabilitated many dogs thru the years and have become their lifeline to finding a forever home.

I look forward to meeting and building a relationship with you to create the perfect look for your lifestyle.


Renee Lavish

Master Stylsit

I’ve been a stylist since 1995 with advanced training skill with Graham Webb Academy.   I am SO excited everyday to use the skills I’ve learned over the years. One of my favorite techniques is razor cutting to traditional cutting, color, balayage, baby-lights and certified keratin treatments. I specialize in fine hair– I love creating customized, beautiful hair for each of my clients. I am also a nail technician. When I’m not at work I love spending time outside with my two boys, husband Jeff and our crazy dog Rex.


Donna Ponzio

Master Stylist

I've been in the beauty industry for 35 years and I love the endless possibilities my career puts in front me. Listening to my clients wants and needs always comes first, whether it’s wanting a trim when cutting extra long hair or cutting off enough to donate it.
Although I enjoy coloring and cutting, my career began in the 80’s so I also love doing perms, cutting curly hair is one of my favorite things to do whether the curls came from me or Mother Nature.
I’ve found that in this ever changing world my clients are looking for less maintenance, especially when coloring their hair, so I’m enjoying the challenge of finding solutions to make them look and feel younger while also making their lives easier.
My long term goal is to maintain the health and integrity of my clients hair, I feel sharing my knowledge of our professional take home products is important so I can help them choose the best products for them to use at home.

Marisa De Vito


My love for skin began when I struggled with acne at a very young age. I started to educate myself on proper skincare. Diving into ingredients, products and specific skin protocols. The result of my own skincare journey made me want to assist others on their own skin "issues"
I began my education right after high school and received my license in 2020.
Besides my love for skin I own and manage a small dairy goat farm. Have you heard about the benefits of goats milk for the skin? Goats milk has the closest PH level to our skin and it also reduces inflammation, soothes dry skin and reduces the signs of aging. Here at DomAlena's we use all natural products that are grown on a farm. I'm excited to
meet you and guide you on your journey to Beautiful Glowing Skin!
