Spending all day with your friends while helping clients solve their skin care problems may sound like a dream job, but for Deborah Principale, co-owner of Vogue Salon & Day Spa in Williamsville, New York, it’s a dream job she’s worked hard to achieve.

Starting out more on the clinical side of health, Principale stumbled into the beauty world somewhat on a whim. “I was always much more into my science courses in high school, and technically, I was going to be a pharmacist,” she says. After having a change of heart, however, she found herself pursuing a different kind of health care. “I ended up having some time I needed to fill and decided to go to cosmetology school,” Principale explains.

Studying at the Harkness Career & Technical Center in Cheektowaga, New York, Principale received her cosmetology license from the state of New York in 1982 and began working as an assistant at a local Williamsville spa. There, she spent time learning about the beauty industry and honing her skill set, as well as creating relationships with her fellow employees.
