Master Designer & Reiki Master

 Since graduating top of her class at The American Academy of Cosmetology in 2002, Heather began educating for L'Oreal Professional.
Since then, she has become certified in cutting and styling curly hair,  keratin smoothing treatments & hair extensions.
Heather loves ALL areas of hair including dimensional color and foiling however simply loves seeing the look on her guests faces knowing they love the end result.  She continues her education so that she can keep up on the most current techniques and trends for you.
As well as being Master Designer she has been doing for 16 years and became a Reiki Master in 2010, so the time you spend in her chair, she hopes is an overall hair, mind, body and spirit experience.
"I feel beyond blessed to finally have the opportunity to open my own salon where clients can feel good Vibes from the moment they walk in to the moment they leave.  This is my dream and I'd love for you to be a part of it."

Alyssa recently graduated from
Oxford Hair Academy
and is already one of the hardest workers we have ever seen.
Her attention to detail when blowdrying a guest or shampooing makes us certain that
her work once behind the chair is 
going to be amazing.
We encourage our guests to get to know Alyssa and help us to help her grow.
As a newly licensed hairstylist you will see her doing hair from time to time while we continue her education so that she can be the best at what she does.
