NATALIE ARIAS

Natalie started out in 1986 at Hickox Salon, training and then working as a color specialist. She was educated under Irvine and Rita Rusk, known globally for their expertise in salon color treatments and hair styling. In 1992 she opened her own shop, Aphrodite in (what was not yet known as) The Pearl, employing over 20 stylists. In 1998 she opened Mona Lisa Salon in the same neighborhood, eventually moving to the Central Eastside Industrial area with a desire to remain in a more cutting-edge locale. Natalie specializes in creating the perfect cut and color for each client considering their individual hair texture, bone structure and lifestyle. She uses Goldwell products for color and Maria Nila for styling and haircare.

Natalie believes it’s important to thoroughly pamper her clients, providing a welcoming atmosphere and a refuge where they can enjoy delicious fruit-infused mineral water, a warm cup of tea or a specialty cocktail. Mona Lisa’s atmosphere is bright and uncluttered, featuring large glass overhead doors, that stand open in the warm weather to catch the breeze.

Natalie Booker, RN MSN

 "Assisting clients to realize a personalized look that is subtle, natural, and refreshed."

As an RN for 22 years I am thrilled to be a certified nurse injector. Skintastic is built on the principle that everyone is beautiful and deserves to age gracefully.  My injection techniques include: 

  • Neuromodulators injections (Botox, Xeomin), to treat subtle signs  of facial aging


  • Dermal fillers to enhance face and lips

My specialties include addressing forehead and brow wrinkles, crows feet, "bunny lines", lip lines, brow lift, and masseter injections for TMJ pain.  I use dermal fillers to enhance and provide fullness to lips and cheeks. 

I love blending my nursing experience with my love for art to provide just the result you want.  I stay up to date on the most current techniques and products in aesthetic medicine. I am known for my attention to detail, great bedside skills, and for having an artistic eye and would love to meet with you to outline your care plan for beauty.
