Hello! I have been a part of the Just Cuz Beauty team for two years now! I joined our team as a receptionist, and shortly after decided to specialize in custom spray tanning. In addition to these roles, I also manage the salon, so I look forward to seeing all of your friendly faces when you visit our salon, and will be readily available to help you with anything you may need! When I’m not at the salon, my time is spent with my children, friends & family. Some of the things you can always find me enjoying with them are:  being outside, riding dirt bikes and spending as much time as possible on the St Croix River. I look forward to seeing you at Just Cuz soon!

Hair Stylist 

Jamie Gingras

It’s always been a passion of mine to help bring out the beauty in people. Getting to know you as an individual and creating style that matches your personality is why I enjoy this field. I started in the salon in 2002 and worked with amazing and talented stylists, while achieving a passion for what I love. During that time I became a mother, so naturally I took a step back from the salon and focused on raising my two amazing children. Naturally, I never stepped away from what I love doing. The  decision to pursue my passion is greater than ever and I’m enthusiastic to bring my talents back into the salon.

Makeup Artist

Elisabeth Olson

Hi, I’m Elisabeth! When I was younger, I was involved in dance, theater and modeling. As a result, I learned to do many different types of makeup and found I had a knack for it. It became a passion of mine to learn more about different skin care and make up trends/techniques, especially as I got older and my routines had to shift due to maturing skin. After receiving some professional training, I eventually settled into my own personal style. I specialize in soft glam and natural “no-makeup” looks, but I am happy to accommodate all styles and visions. I want the entire process to feel very pampering and confidence boosting. I believe all faces are beautiful - makeup simply enhances what’s already there. Let me help you shine!

Media Makeup school where I studied bridal and special event makeup. I specialize in classic, glamour, and vintage styles. I’m very passionate about makeup. My goal is to make everyone look and feel their best!

Hair Stylist

Maddie McCann

Hello, I started in this industry in 2018 when I attended the Esthetics program at TPSA in Maplewood. Shortly after I started that program I knew that I wanted to do hair. I enrolled at TSPA in 2019 but this time for Cosmetology, and that’s when I knew I found my true passion. I love getting to meet new people and making their visions come to life. I’ve always been an artistic person but hair is really where I get to use my creativity! Cut and color is my jam but specifically, I love balayages, shadow roots, and blonding services. A little bit about me, when I’m not at the salon, I spend a lot of my time outside golfing, hiking, and kayaking. I love traveling and trying new restaurants. And I am a cat mom of two! I’m so excited to be a part of this team and I can’t wait to see you in my chair!
