Our Salon

Alchemist+Salon+interior3a.jpg

As an Aveda lifestyle salon, The Alchemist Salon uses Aveda products exclusively for all spa and salon services. We have made a commitment to the highest standards of education and customer service.

Aveda’s knack for gathering like-minded, talented and motivated stylists, colorists, makeup artists and spa therapists isn’t just the luck of the draw; we benefit from a common commitment to beauty and caring for the whole person that attracts artists who practice these ideals in their own lives, professionally and personally

Creative freedom is essential to our success as artists. With so much individual talent in our salon, we trust our artists to explore the depths of their own ingenuity once they’ve received the education they need to cultivate it.

Expressing themselves outside the boundary of a foundation of technical skills allows for inspiration and inventiveness, and in turn earns the trust of our guests – a key ingredient to the unique Aveda experience found here at The Alchemist Salon.

My career with Aveda was intially cultivated during an intense apprenticeship and was fortified by attending the Aveda Institute in Massachussetts.

I identify with the mission statement of Aveda, “to care for the world we live in, from the products we make to the ways in which we give back to society. At Aveda, we strive to set an example for environmental leadership and responsibility, not just in the world of beauty, but around the world.”

At the core of my being, I emulate the ideals of Aveda through my lifestyle choices, such as being an environmental activist, a vegetarian, a productively aware member of society and as an integral segment of the artisan community.

My salon promotes an environment and synergy of like-minded people with common ideals and expectations. I always had the goal of opening a salon, and feel blessed to have been able to implement the Aveda rituals, not only to benefit my clientele but to apply them to my lifestyle as a whole.

With more than 12 years in the industry, I have an ever-growing passion to nurture and beautify others.

I have embraced the Aveda methodology, products and philosophy as it relates to preserving our planet.

I am an artist at heart and must be creative. I think of hair as a medium with which I can sculpt.

“Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Using Aveda products, I am able to enhance the external and connectt to the internal for both hair and skincare.

As a senior stylist at The Alchemist Salon and many years experience in the beauty industry, I thoroughly enjoy my job and look forward to working with you.

After a decade in the industry, I still look forward to coming to work every day.  The ladies I work with challenge me to expand my comfort zone and have fun while enhancing the quality of my work with each client. I have had some women in my chair for years, and after years of doing the same service,  I am still finding ways to optimize their results!  Being in an environment of such positive women, with all of the love and support we share, has given me the opportunity to grow as a professional.  I love my position here, and it shows through the pampering that I provide to my guests each day!

I’m new to the industry but I feel like I’ve been doing this forever. I feel so comfortable and at home here at The Alchemist.

I specialize in blondes and balayage, and I pride myself on creating hair that makes them feel beautiful from the inside out.
