Originally from southern California and raised in the mountains of Asheville, North Carolina, Stephen is a graduate of the International School of Skin and Nails in Atlanta Georgia as well as a high honors graduate in Cosmetology from Catawba Valley Community College in Hickory, North Carolina.  After completion of the esthetics program in Atlanta, Stephen successfully completed an internship at CNN in the hair & makeup department and was offered a position on staff.  Not ready to commit to a fulltime position, in just one part of this incredible industry, Stephen chose to continue to work as a freelance hair & makeup artist for several photographers in the Atlanta and surrounding areas.  This led to being signed with three different talent agencies in the city.  Clients have included Coca Cola, Saks 5th Avenue, Hanes, HBO, Style Network and many others.  Hair and makeup is Stephen's life.  It has been his passion for 36 years.  He listens to his clients and provides his best work and expert advice at all times in hair cutting, hair coloring and makeup services. Stephen is an experienced professional beauty and grooming specialist. Welcome to Studio V.

Stephen is AMAZING with all ages, hair types, wants and desires. Our whole family goes to Studio V. In my experience with hairstylist - as you grow with your clients there tends to be a trait that they take on your hair as their own and stop listening to the changes you want and you end up with the same boring thing regardless of what you take in there. Stephen was very quick to recognize that I love change and that each time I set an appointment, prepare to be surprised because I do not stay with a style for any length of time. He really listens to what you are asking for and then is able to relay that message back to you before he starts processing or cutting and that is really reassuring. I went in with a cut that was supposed to look one way and didn't necessarily turn out that way and he asked to see my inspiration. Before proceeding, he simply said if I was ok with it he would like to try and replicate the style I was looking for to begin with! He did a great job and I couldn't be happier that I found someone who is easy to be around, easy to talk to and simply talented.
