At Pure Joy, we strive for a professional yet friendly and warm culture, where you can enjoy wonderful service and great company! Please take a moment to meet each of us and learn what, or rather who, makes our salon unique!


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.


Hi! I'm Hannah and I manage the salon's daily operations, social media, and guest services. If you ever have any questions or comments, I'm your girl!


Hello! I'm Emily and I attended Mount Joy Career and Technology Center. I graduated and received my cosmetology license with honors in 2016. Color creativity and manicures and pedicures are what I love most, although my favorite part of the craft is making people feel beautiful!


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 Taylor Horn. I have always had a passion for the beauty industry. I grew up in the salon under the training of my talented mother, who then inspired me to attend Empire Cosmetology School. I have always had an eye for color and current trends. I'm always excited to meet new clients!


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.
