KELLY SEARLE, OWNER
Hi, I'm Kelly. I started TNT Beauty Studio to create a space for people express themselves through beauty and photography. I strongly believe in the value of personal style in all things, and love celebrating true individuals.
I've been working for the past 8 years in the beauty industry and as a photographer for clients like Vogue, Glamour Magazine and Lucky Magazine. My work has taken me everywhere from Australia to Puerto Rico, and has been featured by Wired, Adobe, Portland Monthly, The Guardian, Kinfolk Magazine and Bon Appetit. From 2012-2017 I ran Liner Magazine, a magazine about personal style. During which, I worked with collaborators all over the world and we still have a readership of 400,000 views per month per issue, and are sold in stores in Portland and Los Angeles. I eventually ended up in LA interviewing celebrities about their skincare and beauty routines for Totalbeauty.com, and making tutorials for companies like Tweezerman. Speaking to the best in the beauty biz lead me to getting my esthetician certification, as well as my lash extension certification. I've since moved back to McMinnville with my husband, and we're staying put. It's time to give back some love to the city that started my career.
I love making people feel good; there's nothing better. At TNT Beauty Studio, that's our goal, plain and simple.
SEAN DICKERSON, MASSAGE THERAPIST
(Available in Portland only). I've been a massage therapist for years, working in San Francisco for celebrity clients like Dave Chappell. Since moving to Portland, I've been growing my practice. I do chair massage, table massage, reflexology, and soon reiki. I love helping people let go of their burdens, pain and stress, and help them pinpoint where their anxiety is stored.
THE TNT MISSION
TNT fits into people's lives: We come to you, whether it's your house, a venue, or your office during your lunch hour. Our mobile flexibility makes it easy on our customers.
We wanted to create a space where you could literally get everything done: skin, makeup, lashes, waxing, and photos to boot.
A lot of salon spaces have a "glamour diva" vibe, but that's just not us. Our clients are unique, and more interested in new ways of thinking and being. Our services help them express that. We don't believe in stuffy, fancy vibes; we believe in the beauty of realness and uniqueness. Come as you are; leave as you want to be.
