Susie puts the insights gained from more than 19 years in Orange County hair salons to work for her diverse clientele. Her background encompasses advanced hair cutting, balayage, color and texture analysis, glamour makeup, along with comprehensive product knowledge—experience which forms the foundation of her business and design philosophy, ensuring her clients receive every attention to detail they deserve.
By focusing on her clients’ individual attributes, Susie brings out their natural beauty—her true passion. In doing so, she is adamant about only using products that respect the integrity of the hair and skin. By conditioning and strengthening the health of her client’s hair, it becomes a superior canvas for the art of cutting, coloring and styling.
Hair cutting and coloring is a complex art that takes into account several important factors. The shape of the client’s face, the structural integrity of the hair, skin tone and natural hair color, and the potential to apply hair extensions are all details that Susie takes into consideration.
