I am an industry leader, educated in Europe at the renowned Vidal Sassoon Academy in London. I have worked in both the Chicago and St. Louis, for over 25 years.

I am conveniently located on the West side of Ellisville near Chesterfield. 

I feel as a hair and makeup artist, it's all about inspiration and creativity. Even after all these years, I never tire of the process. Whether I'm working with a salon client, a bride or collaborating on a project with other industry pros, I feel grateful to be able to do what I do. To create something beautiful, unique or unforgettable is what drives me and when it happens, it's truly gratifying.

I am also a curly hair specialist, having trained under Lorrainne Massey, author of The Curly Girl Handbook and creator of Deva Curl products.

My in-salon Hair Services include Hair Cuts for men, women and children - also smoothing treatments, Perming and waxing. I am a Redken Certified Colorist. I really enjoy creating unique custom colors by using various coloring techniques such as Balayage, Ombre, Color melting, Hightlights Lowlights and Color Glossing. I provide on-location hair and makeup services for competitions, weddings, special occasions, video, and portraits, including corporate and professional events.

I have two daughters who live in St. Louis and Debbie has been taking care of their hair for over 15 years. This past year, I finally took their advice and made an appointment with Debbie. I don't know what took me so long! Never has my hair looked more healthy or beautiful! Not only is Debbie a true artist of her craft, she is also a wonderful person!

Ever since I was old enough to get haircuts, I've always came to Debbie. She was the only person I trusted with my hair for the longest time and now she is my first choice every time. I recommend her for everyone who wants a professional who is nice and truly cares about her customers.

Debbie is the definition of "professional". She has been taking care of my hair for 15+ years. Even after moving to Atlanta 2 1/2 years ago, I still make my hair appointments with her! I have yet to find anyone that can compare to Debbie's expertise and precision. Finding a hair stylist can be very stressful. The first time I sat in Debbie's chair, I felt like I had known her for years. She listens, asks questions, and the end result is always beautiful!

Debbie Watson is an amazing stylist and makeup artist. She did my makeup for my wedding and I loved the way I looked and it lasted all throughout the night. Everyone told me I never looked more beautiful. She is patient, kind, and easy to talk to. She is my regular stylist and has been for the past 12 years. I trust her completely. She can look at your face and tell you what works best. I highly recommend.

Debbie is the only stylist who truly knows curly hair. She has worked miracles cutting, coloring, and styling my thick curly hair. She also taught me how to manage and maintain it. She is one of the warmest, down to earth people I know. She is an awesome stylist and makeup artist and I am so glad I found her!

Debbie has been doing my hair for 5 years and I still have people stop me in the street to ask me where I get my hair done!! I change my hair frequently, and often with many special requests. But Debbie's interpretation of my vision far surpasses my imagination every time. Even as a former stylist my hair has never looked better. Debbie is the a true professional who always delivers the best possible experience.

Debbie is a true professional, who not only takes the time to get to know you, but through her talents, makes you feel like a million bucks after an appointment with her. She is a perfectionist and her creativity and technique is flawless. Debbie did my makeup for my wedding day, and I have never felt more beautiful. I could not have asked for more - her warmth, generosity, ability and expertise helped make me feel like the most special woman in the world. I look forward to my next visit with her! - Ellen K.
