Amanda began her journey in the cosmetology industry at the Douglas J Aveda Institute of Chicago. Previously receiving her undergrad in vocal performance, she’s always been passionate about living a creative and artistic lifestyle. From the moment her client sits in her chair she is dedicated to providing the best client experience she can offer, from the consultation to the finishing product. While she does provide most hair services, blonding and balayaging is her passion! 

Amanda has had wonderful opportunities working and learning from some of the best stylists in the industry. She has also attended and completed the Cut and Know Why class at the Redken Exchange in New York City. Her and her business partner and long time friend, Kayla Santiago, believe education, patience, positivity, and drive are just a few attributes to becoming a well rounded and uplifting stylist! She cannot wait to begin this journey with Kayla so they can provide their clients with knowledge, care, and ultimately beautiful hair!!!
