<p>  Chevy and her Sirens Team</p>It Takes a Village

Chevy, or Siobhan Naughton Kozisek, owns Sirens salon and is ready to take on Fashion Week for the sixth year. She graduated from Capitol in 1997, where she took a liking to doing makeup over anything else. She’s been at it for over 14 years, often with makeup and waxing being her calling.
