OLIVIA

Stylist | Pronouns: She/They | Instagram >>

Whether it be vivid colors, balayage, edgy pixie cuts, fades, or extensions- I’m your person. My goal is to help you find a style that feels unique to you and works with your every day routine. I’ve been creating personalized hair styles for about 6 years now. I graduated in 2017 from Toni and Guy Academy where I learned “cutting edge techniques” (mind the pun lol). Took a break from working in the salon so I could open and run a small local restaurant with my partner (ask me about it if you are interested and I may even be able to hook you up with some delicious food). Anyway, I never stopped playing with hair during that time because it will always be a passion and love of mine to create!

Bonus: I use quality vegan & cruelty-free products, while also committing to be as zero-waste as possible.
