Salon Lofts - Rockville Pike

Loft 12


50 years working in virtually all capacities of the industry from apprentice to salon trainer/manager, to part time industry educator to full time director of education for major an International Hair Color and Cosmetics Company and now (semi-retired) studio salon owner! 

Once a dedicated student of Tony & Guy as well as Vidal Sassoon, honing my precision cutting skills,  I graduated to color in my late twenties and added master colorist, corrective, alternative and multi-dimensional master colorist and trainer with such companies as Framesi, TIGI and, finally, to my beloved GOLDWELL! Proud to be a Nationally Certified Colorist!
In order to scratch that educator itch, I continue to teach basic, comprehensive and in depth color education by way of my INTENSE Color Foundation page on Facebook!  I'm compelled. ;) 


Education is KEY.  I continue to take advantage of all education opportunities as well as weekly/bi-weekly webinars.  Keeping in touch with and on top of industry, fashion, trends and style is the thing that keeps me driven, energetic and ambitious.  

Now in my semi-retirement, I remain fully updated on all the newest cut architecture, regularly attend contemporary educational event, occasionally facilitate and stay aware of all progressive color techniques, applications and products!  With a loyal clientele, spanning up to almost 40 years, I continue to do that which I love!  YOUR HAIR!  

Nothing but the best! I use GOLDWELL products exclusively!

I accept checks and cash only.  Credit cards are not accepted.  Sorry for any inconvenience.
