STYLING PHILOSOPHY // Brittney draws inspiration from a variety of channels: music, art, fashion, film, architecture, design, and culture, as well as her co-workers. She believes in applying the fundamentals of hair-cutting, coloring, and styling theories to achieve optimal results. She loves creating strong lines and geometric shapes, as well as soft, natural, flowing hair. She loves to see the final result when a cut and color come together. She also has a passion for styling hair for photoshoots or modern bridal parties.
PERSONAL STYLE // Brittney tends to mix classic with contemporary styles, creating a look that her co-workers describe as “urban chic.”
CONTINUING EDUCATION // Brittney believes that continuing education is essential to being a successful hairstylist, and also to having a successful team. Not only does she feel it is important to travel for education, but she also believes in bringing education into the salon for the entire staff. Over the years, she has attended numerous hair shows and advanced trainings all over the country, advancing her knowledge of hair cutting, coloring, styling and business. Brittney has trained with many companies, and found her passion lies within Goldwell, Bumble & bumble, and Oribe Hair Care.
