Amelia sees hair as the ultimate moveable canvas: flowing, sexy, lived-in, soft, seamless, fluid. Hair is not just for a picture, it’s for your life. Amelia, doing hair since 2009, comes to us from Cheeky Strut salon in Grand Rapids, Michigan. After cosmetology school, she assisted three top stylists for the first year, and since, has been part of Loreal Professional’s Atelier program. She’s also trained in Balmain Couture and Hot Head extensions, and the Fluid Hair Painting technique. She attended the Unite Global Session in San Diego in 2014. In addition, she’s been working with two of our lines, Oribe and R+Co for years before arriving in Portland, even on stage for R+Co’s “Go Rogue” event (twice). She’s done styling for magazines and art events. Amelia is inspired by the 1970s and loves long hair, extensions, and huge long-lasting voluminous blow-outs. Seamless hair painting to create the ultimate blonde bombshell is her forte. She loves to use a razor to create soft lines with added texture. You can also count on Amelia for special events, bridal hair, and braided styles. She believes that communication between herself and her client is the best way to make everyone love the end result. Also, the integrity of the hair is foremost in her plan. Your hair’s health comes first. Amelia has been a dancer her whole life, she’s had yoga teacher training, and she’s a huge Harry Potter fan. She has a thirst for new knowledge and experiences. She once lived in a van, traveling around New Zealand for three months, and can’t wait to do it again somewhere else.
