Licensed Stylist

Adalia Van is a stylist at Bless'It Beauty Salon, NFP and has been a licensed stylist since 2017. Adalia started her career in the hair industry at the age of 15 years old. She began as a shampoo girl/assistant, and she fell in love with hair and the transformation people experience physically and emotionally as they are gaining more confidence in their inner and outer selves. Adalia says “I personally know how detrimental it can be for someone to have low self-confidence or a lack there of. I have always had a heart for children and people with broken spirits and once I became a licensed cosmetologist, I felt like now I can actually make a big difference. With God, I plan to spend my time loving on each client as I use my talent in my hands to fulfill the plan and purpose God has made me for.”

Licensed Barber

Fredrick Van also known as “Fredo the Barber”, or “Freddy” has been a licensed barber since 2017 . He is the owner of Bless’It Kutz” barbershop and works hand in hand with Bless’It Beauty Salon, NFP. Freddy was born and raised in Springfield, IL. Fred noticed that God blessed him with intimate, individual time with each and every client that he has had the opportunity to cut their hair. God showed him that prayer is needed for each and every client, whether he knows or doesn’t know what they were going through and whether they know or don't know that he was actively praying for them. Fred believes it doesn't matter how old or how small you are, just know that when you walk through the doors of Bless'It Beauty Salon, NFP or Bless’It Kutz you are being prayed for and you will leave out of there feeling like a totally different person. Freddy not only provides individuals with a wonderful, and relaxing service but he also makes sure that he blesses and brightens their day with an existing prayer.
