Andrea has been a top colorist and hair designer in the western suburbs of Chicago for over 25 years. Several years ago, she discovered her latest passion in working with curly hair. Andrea prides herself in being the FIRST Ouidad Certified Stylist in the state of Illinois!! Trained by the hands of Ouidad herself, she now truly understands the art of cutting and styling curly hair. She has the patience and knowledge to teach her clients how to use the correct products to get healthy, bouncy frizz-free curls that last.
“Throughout my career, I have felt fortunate to walk into the salon each day, and honestly LOVE my job! When a person is happy with the way they look, they can face their days with confidence. I believe in sharing my knowledge with my clients, and offering them techniques of how the create the same look at home. Sharing the Ouidad experience has been extremely rewarding for me.”
Andrea originally attended Pivot Point Academy. She has since expanded her education by attending various classes with many different professional hair care companies. With curly hair being her specialty, she has trained in NYC to become Illinois’ first Ouidad certified stylist. Before that, she traveled to Beverly Hills, California to be one of the few certified in the Yuko Japanese straightening system, in the state. As a colorist, she is trained in All Nutrient (a certified organic color line), Redken, and Scruples. Andrea also has salon ownership and management experience.
