I graduated from Lancaster School of Cosmetology in 1998. After working in the business for 6 years, I had the opportunity to open my own salon in my home. Since then, Emily's Shear X-Pressions has grown. We were able to move and expand the business in 2013, starting a new journey as Pure Joy Salon & Day Spa! I love dimensional color and doing makeovers.

I attended Empire Beauty School in Lancaster and received my cosmetology license in 2013. I am a people person through and through, and I love the relational part of my career. I work with natural nails, and also love to cut and color all types of hair! I have a passion for pouring into people and I love making everyone feel great about themselves!


I graduated from cosmetology school in 2007 and have loved doing hair ever since. Over the years I have gained expertise in hair cutting, coloring, blow outs and highlighting techniques. I really enjoy using my creativity and passion to help my clients look and feel their absolute best!



Hi! I’m Sheila. It’s my honor to be a stylist at Pure Joy! I dreamed of doing hair professionally since I was 12, so graduating from Lancaster School of Cosmetology in 2018 was surreal and a special reality! I love accenting individuals natural grace and beauty through the creativity of hair.... cutting, adding dimension through color and all kinds of styling- you name it- I love all things hair!


I graduated from Lancaster school of cosmetology in 2018 with the love of expressing beauty and creativity through hair. Highlights, balayage, and color are a few of my favorite ways to do that! When I'm not behind the chair you can probably find me trying to climb some rocks or catching a plane somewhere new.

Hi! I’m Jacqueline and I love being apart of such an amazing team! I attended Empire Beauty School in Reading. I love meeting new people and making them feel beautiful. Manicures, pedicures, color, and balayage are a few of my favorites. When I’m not behind the chair you can either find me playing with lots of pups or helping at home shelters making food.


My name is Tanya Honafius and I am a licensed massage therapist. I have been a massage therapist since I graduated from the Lancaster School of Massage in 2005. I strive to present my clients with a feeling of wellness and relaxation before, during, and after a massage session. I use medium to firm pressure during a massage that is adapted to each individual's preference. Hot stones, Swedish massage, connective tissue, neuromuscular therapy, and energy therapy are a few of the techniques I use to achieve relaxation and wellness.
