Audie-Marie Gutierrez

Specialties: Cut and Styling

My name is Audie and I’m your friendly neighborhood spider…er…stylist. I’ve been in the industry for 12 years and counting. Training in the Vidal Sassoon way of hair and the Bumble and Bumble way. Precision and intuitive, dry and wet cutting. Most of the time I utilize a combo 1-2 punch of both.

I love what I do. I’m into the cutting and I’m into the styling. Sculpting hair with scissors and sculpting hair through styling techniques. Transforming someone’s look is my favorite. Who doesn’t love a good makeover! You come in asking to cut it all off and I will never ask you if you’re sure. Hush your lips. It’s happening. Let’s do it. Sit down. When it comes to styling, I do everything from casual blow-dry styles to let’s drag queen this hair all the way up.

Something very near and dear to my heart is working with people who have lost their hair due to cancer or other illnesses. Being the daughter of a brave woman who fought and unfortunately lost her battle with cancer I’ve been behind the curtain of what it is and what it means to be on that journey both physically and mentally. It is an honor to know those of you who have been on it and overcome or are currently fighting, for you are what it means to be strong. I would love to help whoever I can by freeing you from falling hair and making bald sexy, demonstrating fun ways to wear scarves (no reason you can’t be fabulous while getting pumped with poison), and sculpting new hair that’s making its way back. My future goal is to take it a step further and learn all I can about wigs so that I can teach you and/or a family member how to apply and care for them properly. Stay tuned.

I want everyone to be happy when they leave my chair, including me. That’s why my favorite kind of client is someone who can put their trust in me and let me work my magic. I have a saying, that saying involves expletives, but the clean version is “If you let me do what I do, it always comes out better”. When clients bring in pictures of what’s going on in their heads it makes my life easier. That is a solid jumping off point for me to really understand what you want your eyeballs to see when looking into a mirror. I will never promise to make you look exactly like Penelope Cruz or Tom Hardy. But I can take what you like about their hair and apply it to what will work best for you. Unless I hate it for you all together…. then I’ll give you a different idea.

I aim to develop long lasting friendships in my chair. I will laugh with you and cry with you, maybe both at the same time if you’re into that sort of thing. I have a huge sense of humor that I pride myself on that ranges from light to dark, clean to dirty, so you never have to be afraid of offending me. Just be yourself and I’ll be me. Let’s talk about movies and how awesome the world would be if I were in charge.

I asked the universe for 𝗽𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗲 the other day. ⁣
Then I proceeded to have a day that kept 𝘬𝘪𝘤𝘬𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘮𝘦 𝘪𝘯 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘴𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘴. ⁣
At the end of that day I was reflecting on everything as I usually do. I was thinking, ‘𝘸𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘪𝘯 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘢𝘤𝘵𝘶𝘢𝘭 𝘧𝘶𝘤𝘬 𝘸𝘢𝘴 𝘵𝘰𝘥𝘢𝘺’? ⁣
𝗧𝗵𝗲𝗻 𝗶𝘁 𝗵𝗶𝘁 𝗺𝗲. ⁣
When I asked for more patience it wasn’t going to automatically appear as a new part of me. Because when is anything that freaking easy? We’d all be billionaires if that were the case. Instead the universe answered me by saying, “𝘖𝘬𝘢𝘺 𝘈𝘶𝘥𝘪𝘦, 𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘦 𝘢𝘳𝘦 𝘢 𝘣𝘶𝘯𝘤𝘩 𝘰𝘧 𝘰𝘱𝘱𝘰𝘳𝘵𝘶𝘯𝘪𝘵𝘪𝘦𝘴 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘵𝘰 𝘸𝘰𝘳𝘬 𝘰𝘯 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵”. Then proceeded to chuck a bunch of tests at me throughout the day. It took me a minute to get what was going on, but eventually 𝗜 𝗴𝗼𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲. ⁣
Think of moments as 𝘁𝗲𝘀𝘁𝘀 𝘁𝗼 𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗸 𝗼𝗻 𝗹𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗹𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘂𝗽 as a human being. It makes it a little easier to move through with a little more grace. Keep this in mind the next time you drop something and then proceed to try and pick it up 11 times, but it somehow manages to keep falling out of your hands and you question whether or not that thing just lives there now.⁣

I know it’s 𝗼𝗻𝗹𝘆 𝗝𝘂𝗻𝗲 an I know it’s 𝗼𝗻𝗹𝘆 𝗝𝘂𝗻𝗲 and it feels like it’s been a full calendar year already complete with 𝘈𝘶𝘴𝘵𝘳𝘢𝘭𝘪𝘢 𝘣𝘶𝘳𝘯𝘪𝘯𝘨, 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘥𝘦𝘢𝘵𝘩 𝘰𝘧 𝘢 𝘭𝘦𝘨𝘦𝘯𝘥, 𝘢 𝘱𝘭𝘢𝘨𝘶𝘦, 𝘬𝘪𝘭𝘭𝘦𝘳 𝘩𝘰𝘳𝘯𝘦𝘵𝘴, 𝘞𝘦𝘴𝘵 𝘕𝘪𝘭𝘦 𝘵𝘳𝘺𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘵𝘰 𝘮𝘢𝘬𝘦 𝘢 𝘤𝘰𝘮𝘦𝘣𝘢𝘤𝘬, 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘢 𝘳𝘦𝘷𝘰𝘭𝘶𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯, but we’re doing okay, right?? 🤣⁣
I’m sure the next six months will hold blessed treasures for all of us, but we’ll 𝗺𝗮𝗸𝗲 𝗶𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗿𝗼𝘂𝗴𝗵 those too. As long as we work together. ⁣
As you reflect on the year thus far and attempt to submerge yourself back into society, functioning as best you can, I want you to make sure you remember all the 𝗹𝗲𝘀𝘀𝗼𝗻𝘀 you’ve already learned so far in 2020. ⁣
I’ve learned 𝗦𝗢 𝗠𝗨𝗖𝗛. I feel like I had started my awakening a few years ago after my mom died, but this year threw things into high fucking gear. And for that...I am 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝗻𝗸𝗳𝘂𝗹. I am seeing things through a completely different scope. Understanding that things are not always as they seem. I’ve learned to speak 𝗺𝘆 𝘁𝗿𝘂𝘁𝗵 always and not make myself small for another’s comfort. I’ve learned that anger is a 𝗺𝗮𝘀𝗸 for pain, sadness, and/or frustration. And that anger begets anger. So instead I choose to practice thinking twice before reacting. To find out why you’re 𝗵𝘂𝗿𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴. To 𝘂𝗻𝗱𝗲𝗿𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗻𝗱 you. To 𝗵𝗲𝗹𝗽 you. To 𝗹𝗼𝘃𝗲 you. ⁣
We are here for such a 𝘀𝗵𝗼𝗿𝘁 𝘁𝗶𝗺𝗲. I keep hearing a voice in my head that keeps telling me 𝘵𝘰𝘮𝘰𝘳𝘳𝘰𝘸 𝘪𝘴 𝘯𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘳 𝘱𝘳𝘰𝘮𝘪𝘴𝘦𝘥. So I want to grow as much as I can in this life. Less karmic baggage for my next one. 😏😉 ‘em I right?⁣
Has 𝟮𝟬𝟮𝟬 taught you anything so far? Whether it be good, bad, or the ugly truth. A lesson is a lesson. ⁣

⁣ I left the sound on so you can hear what a dor ⁣
I left the sound on so you can hear what a dork I am when taking pictures of my 𝗯𝗲𝗮𝘂𝘁𝗶𝗳𝘂𝗹 clients. ⁣
It’s funny, for the longest time I WAS one of those hairstylists that was like, ‘𝘋𝘰𝘯’𝘵 𝘵𝘰𝘶𝘤𝘩 𝘺𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘩𝘢𝘪𝘳! 𝘋𝘰𝘯’𝘵 𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘯 𝘭𝘰𝘰𝘬 𝘢𝘵 𝘪𝘵! 𝘕𝘰 𝘦𝘺𝘦 𝘤𝘰𝘯𝘵𝘢𝘤𝘵!’ 👀⁣
Then I went through a growth phase, personally and professionally, where I realized 𝗹𝗶𝗳𝗲’𝘀 𝘁𝗼 𝘀𝗵𝗼𝗿𝘁 to not be you. To not feel relaxed in your own skin. To feel like you can’t even touch your hair because you fear “𝘮𝘦𝘴𝘴𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘪𝘵 𝘶𝘱”.⁣
𝘔𝘌𝘚𝘚 𝘐𝘛 𝘜𝘗! I tell my clients after I do their hair to get in there! Shake it around! Don’t be afraid! Have I reached my max on exclamation points yet?! Maybe, but I’m gonna keep going!⁣
It’s funny too because I can tell that it’s something foreign for my clients. They reach up timidly to their hair before starting to move it around. ⁣
Why are we able to do this? Because 𝗔𝗣𝗣𝗟𝗜𝗖𝗔𝗧𝗜𝗢𝗡 𝗔𝗡𝗗 𝗛𝗘𝗔𝗟𝗧𝗛 𝗢𝗙 𝗛𝗔𝗜𝗥 𝗜𝗦 𝗞𝗘𝗬! Can’t stop, won’t stop saying it. When these two things are solid you get 𝗗𝗔𝗬𝗦 of style before even thinking about washing it. 𝗜𝗡𝗩𝗘𝗦𝗧 in your hair and it will repay you, 𝗜 𝗣𝗥𝗢𝗠𝗜𝗦𝗘.⁣
👆🏽@aleah.swary is one of @ineedthairapy ‘s proof is in the pudding clients. We first saw her back in August 2019. Switched her entire hair care to @innersenseorganicbeauty and she’s stuck to it ever since. Her hair was so soft and easily detangled. I was SO proud of her for taking care of her hair. ⁣

Man, I love cutting hair. I am freaking 𝗽𝘀𝘆𝗰𝗵𝗲𝗱 to just get my hands all up in everyone’s crowns. ⁣
@christyheyob just makes me so freaking happy every time she comes in. She’s such a 𝗹𝗶𝗴𝗵𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗮𝗿𝘁𝗲𝗱 energy and always 𝘀𝗺𝗶𝗹𝗶𝗻𝗴. The best part is she literally laughs at all my witty banter. ⁣
I’m gonna tell you guys something... if you think I’m funny...or amuse me by laughing at the stupid things I say ...I’m yours. There’s nothing else. I love you. Never leave me. 🥺 😏⁣
This girl lets me do whatever I want when she sits in my chair. Like, clearly, she is an angel that only cares for my happiness. I wish I could clone her! So on this glorious day I said, ‘𝘭𝘦𝘵’𝘴 𝘨𝘪𝘷𝘦 𝘺𝘰𝘶  𝘵𝘰𝘯𝘴 𝘰𝘧 𝘭𝘢𝘺𝘦𝘳𝘴 𝘨𝘪𝘷𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘴𝘩𝘢𝘨 𝘧𝘦𝘦𝘭𝘴 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘴𝘸𝘪𝘵𝘤𝘩 𝘶𝘱 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘣𝘢𝘯𝘨𝘴 𝘢 𝘣𝘪𝘵’. Cuz.....why the fuck not! ⁣

So I’m sitting here thinking about the fact that tomorrow will be my first day back at work after three long months. 𝗧𝗛𝗥𝗘𝗘 𝗠𝗢𝗡𝗧𝗛𝗦!⁣
I have a few feelings floating around in my heart and head, but the overall combo is that I feel a shift in myself. ⁣
I’ve done a TON of 𝗿𝗲𝗳𝗹𝗲𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 and 𝗹𝗲𝗮𝗿𝗻𝗶𝗻𝗴 during this time away and coming back something feels different. It hits different, if you will. 😏⁣
I’m ready to evolve again. ⁣
It’s hard to put into words but if you’re a creative being like myself it’s an overwhelming amazing feeling. 𝗧𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝘀𝘁𝗿𝗼𝗻𝗴 𝗻𝗲𝗲𝗱 𝘁𝗼 𝗰𝗿𝗲𝗮𝘁𝗲. But to create in a different way then what you were taught. To use tools you normally use, but in different ways. Or even introducing a new tool! I am playing around with a different style of cutting and I’m pretty excited about it!⁣
I want to change up looks and 𝗮𝘄𝗮𝗸𝗲𝗻 something in others in the best way. ⁣
This isn’t a job to me. I fucking 𝗟𝗢𝗩𝗘 what I do. The fact that I get to have complete control over my level of creativity AND get to have amazing people in my chair all day is the cherry on top! ⁣
YEE-HAW!! Here we go! ⁣

Blowdry/Diffuse $75+
Our blowdry and diffuse service.


Deva/Curly Cut & Style $175+
The Deva/Curly Cut and Style is a unique haircut which focuses on either sculpting each curl cutting in at an angle so the curl pattern is not disrupted or utilizing the Deva Signature Waterfall cutting technique, a structured method of cut as well as intuitive skills (curl by curl) to cut the hair.


Deva/Curly Cut-To-Go $125+
This TO-GO service is typically for those who’s hair is already feeling hydrated, healthy, and not in need of any major style changes or treatments, and do not have the time or care for styling and drying. Come in clean, air-dried, and un-altered by hats, hair ties or clips, and we will knock off any dry ends, get your shape back to where it should be, and then let you go.


Drycut & Style $175+
Our stylists that offer this service look at it as being able to read the story of your hair. Its length, its density, and its texture. It’s a completely custom haircut to the individual based on how your hair naturally falls making your everyday wear effortless. Being visual learners it only makes sense that they are visual artists as well. This means they cut by sight to create movement in the hair no matter which way it falls. The hair takes form as it being shaped, unlike when it is cut wet.


Drycut-To-Go $125+
When dry cutting our stylists are able to assess each individual’s unique hair texture that will suit their needs. This allows them to pick and choose where they will be cutting so the fall of the hair lays just right. With dry cutting, they are then able to go beyond the visual aspect of evaluating the hair and venture into touch and feel.


Extensions Haircut $150+
It is so important to receive an extension cut following an extension application. So much so that at our salon it’s not even an option to opt out of one. It’s all included in the overall service price. Extensions cuts are given on dry hair. Dry cutting extensions is a visual art, not approached as technical cutting. Sectioning the hair like you would wet hair can lead to removing more extension hair then desired. After going through the installation process to add length, volume, or both, our stylists want to be extremely delicate with the execution of the cut.


Hair Repair/Protein Treatment $100+
This is a “fix” of something done to the hair that was self inflicted at one time or over the course of months to years, or the outcome from what another colorist performed on your hair based on the desire at that time.


Hydrating service $100+
Our hydrating service for dry hair.


Men’s Haircut $75+
Contact us to request more information about our men’s haircuts.
