Being a hairstylist is so much more to me than styling hair. While it provides a creative outlet for me, I mostly enjoy the people. I have this amazing opportunity to touch the lives of so many women –  my clients and the stylists on my team. One of the things I take pride in is my openness to teaching and helping my clients love their hair. When you feel great about your hair and looking your best, you are more likely to take greater care of your health. I hope to lead my stylist team in this manner. Attention to detail and  providing the best client care to help each person feel their best. 

One of my favorite services and most requested is blonding with gray coverage. I have spent so much time finding the balance between dark and light “roots” with women transitioning into gray coverage. This is a time in life tough for women. While sometimes having gray hair is tough to swallow, I love it when women embrace who they are at their age, whether they decide to cover 100% of their gray or blend with blonde, I’m here to assist the process. Creating a look for someone to accentuate features you love and softening the features you feel less confident about is on the top of my to-do at every visit. 

Lived in color – utilizing Balayage, Foiling, and Full Coverage Color are my specialties. If I were to describe a visit to my salon chair I would say I offer a reliable service with clear expectations of results. Believable, manageable and classy while on trend describe the experience. I spend a lot of time studying new techniques, chemistry of products and haircutting techniques, providing classy yet on-trend styles to wear day and night. Blonde hair and Gray coverage are tough areas and I have mastered them…

When I’m not at the salon you’ll find me outdoors in the softball stands or on the track supporting my favorite student athletes and if not there I love to be in the woods! In my past-time you’ll find me listening to pod-casts and audible books to fuel my brain while I accomplish life duties.

I provide a nice, professional yet fun experience for my clients. I try to be a great listener to understand lifestyles and desires for their hair. I am extremely respectful of my clients’ time and aim to provide a hair service that is both manageable and gorgeous! My chair is a comfortable place to be both physically and mentally, my wish is for my clients to leave feeling great inside and out!

What Andi loves most about being a stylist: “I love creating and I love the people. I get to touch the lives of so many people every day. My craft is so important because it allows for creative fulfillment, but more importantly I’m able to assist my clients with loving themselves.
