Hey everyone I'm Amanda!

I recently just moved to the Sarasota Area from Cincinnati, Ohio and I am loving it!! I have been a hairstylist for over 14 years and worked for one of the best salons in Cincinnati. Working for Salon Lofts is giving me the opportunity to work for myself and give all of my clients the individual attention they deserve! My clients know that when they sit in my chair they will get everything they want and more. I take the time to pay attention to face shape, eye color and skin tone when it comes to picking that perfect color or cut and style! I am a trained Wella colorist and have had color education with Wella Global Artist Sonya Dove! Various education in blonding, balayage, dry cutting, color blocking, razor cutting, mens cutting and styling/updos. My clients are like family to me so I promise I will always do everything to make you happy! So book an appointment or even just schedule a consultation if you want to talk about your hair first! Hope to see you soon! 


**I also do onsite wedding hair. Let me take the stress out of your day and come to you so you can relax with your besties! Click on my website on The Knot for more information!

I found Amanda last year. My best friend would take care of my haircuts but she relocated to MN. Amanda has cut my hair twice now and I am so thrilled. Perfect length and layers! I am one of those people who lets my hair grow out until it looks flat and then I need about 6 inches cut off - and I trusted Amanda immediately to chop it off :) With really thinning hair - i have never really had a cut that I felt good about but I actually feel like my hair looks good. I can not recommend her enough. - Alyssa

I am new to the area and met Amanda through Salon Lofts. She made me feel instantly comfortable, gave me a great cut and color and has been very accommodating of my schedule. I would highly recommend her and feel so very relieved to have found her! Thank you, Amanda!

After searching for about 4+ years for a hairdresser; a lot of hit and mostly misses...I saw Amanda post something about being new to the area. I had nothing to lose by trying another person and I am so glad I did. She is a great listener to what you want done or if you want to change things up. She is polished & professional. She is very detailed to making sure you are HAPPY when you walk out the door. She has been the only person I found that is great with color, cut, and a fun conversation. You will not be disappointed...

Amanda has been working magic on my hair for years in Ohio. I was so sad when she moved to Florida. Since she has left I have bounced around to different stylists in the Ohio area but have not found someone that has her touch. So, I decided to fly down to Florida to see her and her new salon to get that truly amazing look I have had with her for years!!! She is so very welcoming and has a talent not like any other I have experienced. Her new space is very comfortable and homey and I felt very relaxed! Looks like I will be flying down every couple months to see her! Florida you are truly fortunate to have her :)

I’ve gone to see Amanda twice now for highlights and cuts, including a recent cut of quite a few inches off. I have been extremely happy each time I’ve left and have no problem driving 45 minutes to see her. I’ve been bouncing around stylists in the Tampa area for about 4-5 years and haven’t found one i love until Amanda. Highly recommend her!!!

Amanda is my big sister and has been doing my hair since she started cosmetology school over 12 years ago. She was the first person and ONLY person I have ever trusted to color my hair! She listens to what you want but also gives ideas on what would look wonderful. I even have her style my hair for friends weddings. I will specifically go to my sister the morning of a wedding I’m in just to have her do it because she pays attention to individual needs of your hair texture, type, etc. to make sure it is done the best! She is so talented that I still am only having her do my hair. I’ll just be visiting Florida to get it done! She’s done amazing dry cuts, a BEAUTIFUL ombré, and all over color on me. I am not saying this because she is my sister but because she is crazy talented. I highly recommend Amanda.

Amanda’s the only person I’ve trusted to do my color and cut since she’s started as a stylist. I trust her to always do a wonderful job and leave the salon feeling beautiful with the new stylings I’ve had done! She also does both my 4 and 2 yo daughters hair. They love her and I trust her to do a wonderful job on them as well! We are so excited to have her here in Tampa now since we moved last year and I wasn’t sure what I was going to do for my hair. I made trips back to Cincinnati just to get my hair done by Amanda! Thrilled to have you here and starting your business with Salon Lofts! You won’t be disappointed or dissatisfied when choosing Amanda for your hairstylist needs!!!

I’m a snowbird in a 55+ community. Honestly I found her on google. After speaking with her on the phone regarding my hair color dilemma, I decided to take a chance because she sounded very knowledgeable about the formula my regular hairdresser gave me and she had the same name as my daughter. She even tweaked the formula to give me better coverage. No regrets!! I’m very pleased with the color and cut. I hope to see you again. Thank you Amanda. L. Mecca

Amanda cut my hair for years in Cincinnati. After trying six new people, I still haven’t found anyone who cut it as well as she did. If I were rich, I would fly to Florida for my haircuts!

“I can’t say enough about Amanda! I’m so glad I found her to do my hair as it’s so tough these days to find stylists that listen to what you’re asking for, let you know what they truly think would look good on you and take their time with you. Well, I got my hair highlighted, cut and styled yesterday from a bit of a drab, darkened look and low and behold....my hubby even noticed and said how beautiful it looked! I love it so much and booked my next appointment. Thank you so much Amanda for brightening me up again!” ~Miki~

Amanda has been doing my hair for over 7 years. She did my husbands hair and also did me and my bridesmaids for our wedding. She does great color too! She listens, she’s stays up on training with technique and is fun!

Amanda does a great job I’ve lived in Florida now for 5 years and have not found anyone who can do my hair like she did. I’m so glad you moved here Amanda

Amanda is knowledgeable in her craft, as well as passionate. From cutting, to styling, to special occasion hair...she’s a pro at it all. I worked with Amanda in Cincinnati for her 12 years there plus another 8, I saw stylists come and go...Amanda stands out in my mind as one of the most professional and talented I’ve had the pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Amanda’s work. She will not disappoint you.

Amanda is the BEST! I recently had long hair (24") after years of growth, I finally decided I wanted a change. After speaking with Amanda, she cut it exactly how I described my desired hairstyle to her! I am so thankful and feel great, even younger, in my new style! Merryanne

Amanda is the best stylist I’ve ever been to. She has been doing my hair for 10 years and I always know it’s going to look beautiful when she is done. I have done it all, blonde highlights, ombré, balayage, auburn, copper, you name it! My color has always been 100% perfection and my haircuts and styles have always been so easy to recreate at home. Amanda really takes the time to understand what I want. She also did hair for my wedding day. Myself and my bridal party absolutely loved our hair! Do yourself a favor and book an appointment with Amanda. You will be so happy you did!
