Arleen Regnault

Owner, Highlight Salon

Born and raised in Miami, Arleen Regnault has had a passion for beauty since she was a little girl. A Cuban-American, she started her career doing hair and makeup for weddings. She then worked at a hair salon in Coral Gables before striking out on her own. 

Latest Achievement

After 20 years in the beauty industry, Regnault opened Highlight Salon in Coral Gables. It opened in July in the midst of the pandemic. “When I opened they were about to close [everything] again,” Regnault says. Highlight Salon remained open, however, and they kept both clients and staff safe by taking clients’ temperatures before each appointment, sanitizing the salon, and enforcing social distancing in the reception area and at the stations. 

What She Says

“I feel you’re never too old to have your dream come true,” says Regnault. The owner, who turns 50 this year, had been planning to open her own business for three years. Highlight is located at 2255 Ponce de Leon Blvd. “There’s no better place than Coral Gables, especially for my business,” she says. “I never thought about going anywhere else.”
