In this article, Karen Blackledge reported that three sisters “expanded their business and moved up the street” from Color Avenue to Mill Street in Danville. The three sisters are Erica Sobol and Alycia Pitcavage, both from Mount Carmel, and Vanessa Darcangelo of Kulpmont. “They are all graduates of Empire Beauty School in Shamokin Dam and were taught by the three sisters’ mother, Ann Darcangelo, of Kulpmont.” A cosmetology instructor at the Shamokin Dam Empire Beauty School in the Orchard Hills Plaza on Routes 11 and 15 “for 17 years, she was named Teacher of the Year among two-year colleges and trade schools in Pennsylvania last year.”

Erica and Vanessa are licensed cosmetologists in the beauty salon, as is Kelsy Clark of Sunbury.
