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.
Deva Certified Stylist
Achieved DevaCurl certification, our highest level of curl expertise
Our blowdry and diffuse service.
Haircut & Style $120+
Beginning with a consultation, our stylist’s will have you tell them about your hair.Once the consultation has concluded this is when the individuality of each stylist will determine how your cut will begin. Some will start while your hair is dry, shaping the whole cut, pre-shampoo (see Dry Cutting). Conversely, your stylist may begin with shampooing and conditioning your hair so they can begin your cut with wet hair.
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.
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.
Formal Up-Style CR*
A Formal Up-style is a hairstyle that is worn for any special occasion. Whether its prom, weddings, parties, or award ceremonies. It involves certain polishing techniques for the hair before some or all of it is pinned up with intention and the use of bobby pins.
Hair Repair/Protein Treatment $50+
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+
