As a young artist, Heather aspired to move to New York to become a perfectionist at the “Art of Hair”. Her passion for hair led her straight to Nick Arrojo and Rodney Cutler where she learned in-depth precision and razor cutting. Training under two of the creative giants in the industry ignited a passion for beautiful, wearable precisely cut hair which she delivers exquisitely to all her loyal clients. Color came naturally to Heather with her art school background. Balancing tones and bringing out the client’s natural beauty are what inspire her. We are honored to have her as our In House Educator and creative director, sharing her well-honed skills and instincts for hair with our staff, from Senior Stylists to Apprentices. Heather will keep you looking sensational even while away from the salon.
