Hi! Welcome to Prism Studio!  Ever since I gave my little brother his first buzz cut (don't worry, mom knew what we were doing!) I knew I loved playing in hair.  I graduated from Aveda Chapel Hill early 2010 and here I am! 

I have since then had the opportunity to train with some really amazing people in the industry, some of which include, but are not limited to..  L'Oreal Pro Balayage, Arrojo American Wave and Advanced Razor cutting, and GKhair Keratin Smoothing. 

My shop hours run until 8:00 pm during the week to accommodate my working 9-5 guests and 9:00-4:00 Saturday.  If you are a new client looking for a color service please shoot me a quick email with current hair and hair goals and/or sign up for a consultation (Free, yay!).  

I proudly use IGK and Verb products!  L'Oreal for color!  GKhair for all your Keratin needs!

We love Stephanie! I have been going to her for several years and always love the cut & style (and advice) she gives me! And my teenage boys love coming to her also! She is knowledgeable, talented and fun!

I live out of town and make sure to travel to go see Stephanie! Always a good time and a even better haircut. Could not recommend her more!

Stephanie is such a pro. I've always been picky about my haircuts and color, and she always gets it right. When there was a chance I would be moving for work, I was already planning when I'd be able to travel back just to keep my appointments with her. I’m so glad I got to stay so I could keep going often! She’s always recommended great products when I’ve asked for suggestions, and I always leave in a great mood with great hair. Can’t ask for more. She’s the best!

I have been getting cut and color from Stephanie for over 2 years. I have lived in Durham 6 years and it took that long to find the best hair stylist in Durham. Other stylist told me my hair was resistant to color treatment and I couldn't have the color I wanted. Not Steph! She is truly a creative professional and I finally have the hair color that I want and love. I wouldn't go anywhere else now. I receive many compliments both on the cut and the color. Never leave Durham Stephanie!

My family loves our time with Stephanie at Prism Studio. As a working mom I appreciate her flexibility and willingness to accommodate getting my family in together to save us time. She is the best in Durham, and I'll add, the kindest too! Stephanie goes out of her way to make sure her clients have a spa like experience while in her chair. Its a place to unwind and relax, and leave feeling beautiful!

I’ve been a loyal client of Stephanie for years, she is the only one that can tame my wild mane! She does not disappoint!

Balayagé master! Stephanie creates the most beautiful natural highlights. I trust her more than anyone. She’s cool and her work is flawless. She knows how to solve problems like brassy tones. She saved my hair when it was ruined and orangey. I would never get my color or cut anywhere else.

Stephanie is a rare gem as a hair stylist and as a person. When I first moved here from Michigan four years ago I knew I would have to find a stylist ASAP which I was not excited about. Being too nervous to be the guinea pig of the family, I sent my daughter to go first. Stephanie performed miracles on her hair, balayage and a haircut. “Most amazing highlights ever”, she exclaimed! After that I knew Stephanie was my girl. Hands down, she is probably one of the best colorists in the triangle. I receive compliments all the time on my hair because it looks so natural, no matter how we change it. Your time with Stephanie will be worth it.

I have been a long-term client of Stephanie's (nearly 4 years now) and I could not ask for a better hair stylist! I have very thick, curly, frizzy, ethnic hair and Stephanie knows exactly what to do to tame my crazy hair. With every appointment, I always leave feeling more beautiful, empowered and confident, which has never been the case with any other hair stylist I have had. I do not trust anyone else with my hair now and could not recommend Stephanie more!

Stephanie = great for color with dark hair. Many have tried to color my hair, only Stephanie has succeeded. She is also flexible and can usually get me in within a week when I am feeling desperate. She’s less expensive than a therapist or I can just look at the wall and be taken care of. She’s easy, encouraging and skilled. Thumbs up!

I lived in Durham 14 years before finding Stephanie. In that time, I tried MANY hair stylists, and ended up traveling back (“home”)to the DC area to get a good haircut. Then I found Stephanie who is amazing. She’s a true artist with the skills to manage my crazy thick wavy hair. She’s now been cutting and coloring my hair for 2 years and I could net be happier! Also she is ALWAYS on time, which I appreciate immensely.
