Bill Panasiewicz

Stylist

Born and raised in Lansing, Bill graduated from Barber School after serving his country for 5 years in the United States Army. Bill worked in Lansing for another master barber for 6 years before opening his own “Bills Barber Shop” for 2 ½ years. The hairstyle revolution created by The Beatles on their tour of America changed hairstyling forever. Bill went back to school and soon became a hairstylist and thus the line between barber shops and beauty salons has been removed indefinitely.
Bill and his wife Karen with their 3 children moved to Cadillac where the “New Image Hair Salon” was opened in July, 1974. The salon allied itself with Redken in the early 80s. Redken is a quality product line, but more importantly, it is voted the best at providing education. Education has been the basis for the new image salons success over the years. The salon has thrived over the years and was sold to Carol Brewster in November 2013 and Bill continues to stay on as a stylist and a consultant. Retirement? Why would someone retire from something you dearly love doing?

I am originally from Grand Rapids before I moved to Northern Michigan about 14 years ago. I graduated from Lake City High School and attended and graduated from cosmetology school at the Cadillac Institute of Cosmetology in 2010. After school, I got a job here at New Image where I immediately jumped at the opportunity to further my education by becoming a certified Redken Specialist. My favorite services to perform are haircutting and coloring.

I am originally from Birmingham, MI and have lived in the Cadillac area for 6 years now. I attended and received my Bachelors Degree from Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, MI. My first year living here, I attended cosmetology school at the Traverse City Beauty College and graduated in 2009. After cosmetology school, I worked at two salons prior to joining the team here at New Image. My favorite services to perform are cutting and coloring. I addition to continued education on all the newest cuts and color trends, I have completed and am certified as an official Redken Specialist.

I have been a licensed cosmetologist since 2003. I attended cosmetology school at Mecosta Osceola Career Center located in Big Rapids, Michigan. I have worked in Big Rapids since 2004. I moved to the Cadillac area and am looking to expand my career closer to home. I am trained in advanced coloring, texturizing, and cutting techniques, however, I still offer all of the basics. For more information please call today to set up a consultation.

Heather Ressler

Massage Therapist/Stylist

Born and raised in Northern Michigan I attended Cadillac Institute of Cosmetology through WMACTC. While still in high school I graduated from the cosmetology program, passed my State Board exam and obtained licensure. I was then named Outstanding Student of the Year in 2006 for Cosmetology at WMACTC. After High School graduation I continued to attend Cadillac Institute of Cosmetology and completed the Cosmetology Instructor program while starting my career as a stylist at New Image Hair Salon where I took advantage of yearly continuing education opportunities to advance my skills. Feeling like I needed a change I took a couple of years break from the industry and worked in the health care feild. I quickly realized that I needed to be behind the chair and took an opportunity to work for myself in a booth rental salon. In 2013 I decided to try my skills in a different area of the industry and started working at Crystal Spa in Crystal Mountain. It was then that I really discovered the benefits of Massage Therapy and realized I could have the best both worlds so to speak, I could continue my career as a Stylist and help people heal by becoming a Massage Therapist. After graduating from Baker College with my certificate in Therapeutic Massage in 2016 it was an easy choice to return "home" to New Image where not only do I get the pleasure of making people look good I also get to make the feel better!
