Owner/Master Stylist/Color Specialist/Educator
Amber is from Virginia but has lived in Jacksonville most of her life and considers it home. She completed Cosmetology School at Staunton School of Cosmetology in 2006. Amber specializes in blonding, color corrections, fashion colors, and extensions. She is a Pivot Point certified educator, certified in tape-in, fusion, and micro link extensions with multiple companies. Her work has been published in leading global magazines such as Modern Salon, American Salon, The Colorist Magazine, Beauty Launchpad, and more. She is also a Senior International Educator for ColorDesign Hair Color as well as Abba Pure Performance Hair Care. Her favorite styling product is Abba’s Smoothing Blow Dry Lotion, because it provides light weight hold, shine, moisture and frizz control for all hair types. When she is not behind the chair she is usually traveling, hanging out with her fur babies Fin and Nolan, drinking craft beer or red wine at a local bar or restaurant, propagating succulents, or crafting. She wants her guests to feel comfortable and to trust that she has their best interests in mind when they sit in her chair. The integrity of the hair is always her top priority, and she always takes into account their lifestyle, and personal style when selecting their customized looks.
