Our Team

Christine Robichaud – Co-Owner

I am a graduate of Bernard’s Hair School and Mr. Richards Barber School. I hold both cosmetology and barber licenses. I have been actively working in the industry for 36 years. Along with working in Maine, I also worked in Hollywood, California for 7 years. I also attend hair shows and classes to stay up al all the latest information and styles, to keep me on the cutting edge.

When I’m not doing haircuts, colors and perms, you can find me doing nails: Acrylic, Shellac and Manicures. My favorite is doing up-styles for proms and weddings.

My favorite thing to do is coloring, and I love to try new colors. I love going to hair shows and taking classes to keep up with the trends. I work with a great group of girls and still love coming to work.

Cindy Whetzel- Stylist

I have been in the Salon Industry for over 25 years. In that time I have mastered a wide range of hair techniques; including women’s, children’s and men’s hair care needs. I specialize in Flattops and Fades for men. I have a passion for color! As a licensed cosmetologist, I also offer Pedicures/Manicures, eyebrow waxing, leg and back waxing.

I believe in continual education and strive to stay at the forefront of my field.  I stay updated on all the latest products and services, as well as trends so that I can give you the look you want and offer excellent service to my clientele. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, the beach and most of all spending time with my son Brady.


Shandra Bishop- Stylist

I am Shandra Bishop. I graduated from Mr. Richards hair academy in 1998. I am a barber/stylist since graduation. Worked for several years at Hairbenders for my parents. Then moved to Hair 2000 and shared space with close friend, Kim Lachance. Then I got an opportunity to move into a small salon of my own at Montello heights and that is where I have been serving my clients for the last ten years. With the pandemic I needed to move into a working salon to keep my business going and found my new home at Panache with old and new friends to continue my journey with.

I live in Auburn with my beautiful daughter. I am an experienced stylist with over 18 years in the beauty industry. I have worked at Kutters Korner Hair Salon as a stylist, eventually becoming co-owner. I have now decided to become independent and get back to my passion for beauty.

I specialize in multi-color foiling, precision cutting, balayage techniques & smoothing treatments.

Lisa Ronan 

I graduated Bernard’s School of Hair Fashion in 1986. I am very excited about my new move to Panache from a wonderful 25-year career at Kutters Korner. I specialize in coloring and foiling techniques, along with cutting.

I am also certified in SHE SO.CAP. Bonded hair extensions. The integrity of the hair is a priority for me, therefore I use Olaplex in most of my lightening applications.
