Shaela Thomas Wins A 1-Year Membership With MY SALON Suite®

MY SALON Suite® announced the winner of their national Unlock Your Dream Suite contest: Chesterfield, VA resident Shaela Thomas, owner of Soulful Intentions Esthetics (@soulful.intentionsesthetics). Shaela will receive a one-year membership in a luxury suite in Short Pump, VA: One of MY SALON Suite®’s more than 270 locations across the U.S. and Canada.


Shaela is a licensed esthetician specializing in facials, skincare, waxing and lash and brow services. She is currently enrolled in a master’s program in advanced skincare to expand the services she can offer to her clients. While she wants her clients to enjoy how they look and feel after their treatments, she is also committed to educating them on the vital role skin plays as the body’s largest organ.


“While we all want to achieve that glowy look, there is so much to learn about our overall health from our skin, which is where many health concerns first start. I’m thrilled by this incredible opportunity provided by MY SALON Suite® to bring my passion for skincare to life,” said Shaela. “This next year will allow me to be more intentional in growing my business and building my clientele without having to worry about paying rent. I can’t wait to witness the growth, experiences and opportunities Soulful Intentions will embark on throughout the next year!”
