I always knew I was going to do hair. I've been a licensed cosmetologist since 1997 and my passion for it has never waned. I have the greatest job ever! When I don't have a client in my chair I'm probably at the beach, I'm an Aquarius.
Carmen’s stylist career has been an adventure; long ago she went to hair school in Manhattan, Minneapolis, and Anchorage, and is now a licensed hair stylist in three states! She’s been a rolling stone most of her life but is excited to put down roots here in Portland with her wife and daughter. She loves doing cuts and colors for people from all walks of life. Being fluent in ASL, she is always thrilled to have people from the Deaf and differently-abled communities in her chair.
Cali is a Portland native who has been doing hair since 2003. She loves doing balayage highlights and eyebrow waxing, but has a wide range of haircut and hair coloring abilities. As a full time college student, she has limited availability for new clients, however she would still love to meet you! Book today and she will talk your ear off about cats, David Bowie, Star Wars, science, and the best Oregon Beaches.
As a creative spirit in love with the human heart and all things aesthetically pleasing, styling feels second nature. Using my creative eye and intuitive understanding of others I like to collaborate with those in my chair to design and sculpt an individually tailored look. Convinced the magic is in the details and finish work I tend to take my time. Diversity being a big inspiration I love everything from edgy, modern to classic styles, wild natural texture to stick straight, it all excites me! I believe communication is essential and most of all want to bring out a look and feel that thrills you.
I have been doing hair most of my life. I literally started out as that kid who cut everyone’s hair! By the age of seventeen I decided it seemed natural to make it my career and started out professionally in Kansas City in 1991. During my journey, I have worked in New York, Philadelphia, New Orleans, Los Angeles and for the past 8 years in San Francisco. I feel fortunate that I have developed a diverse, well-rounded style and skill set along the way. I truly love cutting (I do both scissor and razor cuts) and exploring and creating custom creative color styles for my clients. It’s always fun to try to something new! I’m really happy to have landed here in Portland and looking forward to some hair magic!
These are the products our stylists trust and use on your hair in the salon.
