Amy brought her 80s fierceness to The Color Salon in 1991 along with a creative background from the Interior Design field that is a perfect complement to cutting hair. She began her training at the University of Arizona and finished at The Fashion Institute of Technology in New York with a B.A. in Fine Art. After 6 years she left the design field to try her creative hand in the hair business, as there is an artistic connection to exact angles and measurements in both. She continued on to a Cosmetology program and then apprenticed in a salon in Manhattan for 18 months, where she fine tuned her cutting and styling skills with educators from the Paul Mitchell Academy and other disciplines. Continuing education in these areas and more has always been important to Amy. Most recently she has acquired certification in The Keratin Therapy Smoothing Treatment.
Amy truly believes that every client has beautiful hair. Finding a style that makes the client feel as beautiful at home, when she does her own hair, as she does when she leaves the chair in the Salon.
