About Holly 

"I am fortunate to spend my days in a creative structure with great people. I believe hair is a part of well-being. I help build self esteem and uplift spirits. It is a gift to get to do this work. I've studied with various artist with diverse training backgrounds - Aveda, Paul Mitchell, Vidal Sassoon, Schwartzkopf, Bumble + Bumble and Graham Webb, to name a few. This collection of knowledge has led me to create a unique style in my craft. 

I LOVE color. ALL COLOR. I am well versed in painting, foiling, grey coverage and creative solutions for your color needs. The end results are eye-catching, romantic and stunning. Custom color is my expertise - trust me to help you create your very best look!






The craft of hairdressing found me. I was sitting in a psych class and a classmate asked it I wanted a job helping out at the front desk of new salon on the weekends. Twenty two years later I am so glad I said, "sure, why not." I did my foundation training at the Vidal Sassoon Academy for one year, tried NYC on for awhile and eventually found myself back home in Charlottesville. I specialize in precision cuts, curly hair,  customized color and taming the beastly greys, chatting about the everyday, a good laugh, a tissue to dab the tears and a restaurant suggestion. I love that this career still challenges me in all the best possible ways. I seek out education often and bring that new knowledge back to my clients - we all win!
