Oliver believes that hair can be unique expression of who the client is, and seeks to serve the vision of the client. Hair should do most of the styling for you, should grow out perfectly, and Oliver wants to set up each client to love their hair, long after leaving the salon. He achieves this by embracing natural texture, and teach clients how to love their natural hair by utilizing new techniques they might not be familiar with. Oliver moved to Portland from Asheville, NC, where he worked at Pivot Point, and continued his education with Goldwell, KMS, DevaCurl, barbering, Wella, Davines, and many more. He focuses much of his work on barbering; his perspective barbering positions him well to style and work with short hair in a way not typically offered in a traditional salon setting. Oliver specializes in textured curls, short, vintage and more modern cuts, classic barber cuts, detailed, intuitive cuts, shags, razor cuts and designs. Beyond the chair, Oliver spends his time with his partner and fluffy dog, he writes and publishes books of poetry and short stories, plays and builds drums, records horror movie soundtracks, and explores Portland nature on his motorcycle.
