Meet The Team
Mariposa was born from two people, Noah Armstrong and Brandi Williams, whose vision was to create a world-class salon and spa focused on customer service, quality and innovation. Noah’s background is in clinical skin care with experience working in a downtown Seattle salon and plastic surgery clinic. In Billings she opened a successful esthetic and lash business and wanted to expand into a full-service salon and spa. Brandi had a 25-year career in management and training but wanted to get back to her true passion for providing excellent customer service. Noah and Brandi decided to come together once 2105 Central was found. They quickly realized the building was perfect for an upscale salon and spa.
Noah attended Gary Manuel AVEDA institute, The WA laser institute, and The University of WA. Her Seattle experience ranges from a busy downtown salon to a dermatology clinic and plastic surgery unit. Upon relocating to Billings, Noah opened Avery Aesthetics, a small lash and skin studio. With the success of her studio Noah wanted to expand into a lash Lounge and a modern full service salon. Noah's focus is in lash extension education and training, clinical skin care, permanent brows, and SMP treatments. She is passionate about providing the change her clients are seeking. Noah brings forward thinking to her progressive business. When away from Mariposa she enjoys a quiet life with her husband and children.
