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’ve written about three separate drafts of what I wanted to write about for this post.⁣

They all were along the lines of ‘ We didn’t ask for this time off, but let’s make it count!’ And ‘Pretty amazing how the earth is rebounding and repairing with the absence of human interaction’. ⁣

Most of us have to stop working and the stress of that is real. But when I think about the fact that all I have to do is stay home...shit could definitely be worse.⁣

I love cutting short hair. I think what I like the most about it is the 𝗱𝗲𝘁𝗮𝗶𝗹𝗶𝗻𝗴 that goes into it. ⁣

With short hair you really have to pay attention to how the hair flows and work with it, 𝘯𝘰𝘵 𝘢𝘨𝘢𝘪𝘯𝘴𝘵 𝘪𝘵. ⁣

With most haircuts that I do I like to talk it up. Gab about all the things, but there’s something about cutting short hair...⁣

I’m concentrating yes, but for me I find something really zen about cutting into the hair and 𝗰𝗮𝗿𝘃𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘀𝗵𝗮𝗽𝗲 I want to see. I have to remember to let you guys know that I’m still present. 😆 🙋🏽‍♀️ I’m still here to talk. ⁣

It is actually heartbreaking for me to hear the negative self talk some of you do to yourselves when you are starting off on your natural texture journey. Breathe in, breathe out. 𝗕𝗲 𝗽𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿𝘀𝗲𝗹𝗳 and your hair. I encourage you to let all that negativity about your texture out when you sit in my chair. Then leave it all with me. It doesn’t serve you. Drop it. ⁣
⁣
Sometimes it varies from person to person, sometimes it depends on age. When you’ve lived your life blow drying, curling, flat ironing, and using harsh, drying products on your hair transitioning can be a test of 𝘀𝗲𝗹𝗳 𝗹𝗼𝘃𝗲. You might have volume that’s knew to you, more spring in your curl that makes you a little uncomfortable, frizz that drives you insane. 𝘐𝘛𝘚 𝘖𝘒𝘈𝘠. All those things can be calmed and tamed to help ease you into your journey. My hope as we go and what usually becomes the case is that you end up 𝗮𝗰𝗰𝗲𝗽𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗺𝗼𝘀𝘁 𝗼𝗿𝗴𝗮𝗻𝗶𝗰 𝘀𝗲𝗹𝗳 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘁𝗿𝘂𝗲 𝘁𝗲𝘅𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗲. One of the things that makes you so unique! ⁣
⁣
I need you to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. Sometimes starting out can be hard. There have been a few times where we @ineedthairapy have solved all the curl problems for an individual and they still don’t know what to feel. Why? because they still aren’t comfortable seeing themselves with texture. It’s hard on both ends because as curly hair specialists we want you to 𝘀𝗲𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿𝘀𝗲𝗹𝗳 and your hair the way we do! But we understand, it can take time.⁣
⁣
I’m always here to help. I’ll hold your hand till you can walk on your own. That’s what I’m here for! Yes, I’m here to guide you to better hair days, but my main objective is for you to look in the mirror and 𝘭𝘰𝘷𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘱𝘦𝘳𝘴𝘰𝘯 𝘴𝘵𝘢𝘳𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘣𝘢𝘤𝘬 𝘢𝘵 𝘺𝘰𝘶. ⁣

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.
