Ellie Garciastylist + front desk coordinator
ABOUT // Originally from Bozeman, Ellie moved to California to attend the San Francisco Institute of esthetics and Cosmetology (SFIEC). It was there that she discovered her love and passion for hair and beauty. After graduating, she worked for one year at DryBar, an all styling salon. In October 2015, she moved back home to Bozeman and joined the Theory team. Ellie loves connecting with her clients and understanding their hair, lifestyle, and personal style to really give them the best results she can. She will always strive to learn new techniques and be exceptional at what she does!
STYLING PHILOSOPHY // Ellie loves beautiful and classic hair, with a unique and edgy twist. She loves working with modern and bright colors, but also loves to make more natural colors pop with individuality. She believes that no haircut or color should be the same on any two people, and that there is always a way to make hair express the clients personality.
PERSONAL STYLE // Ellie likes to look girly – anything with glitter and she’s in! She likes to have a clean classic look while also staying in touch with the trends.
CONTINUING EDUCATION // While Ellie attending SFIEC she was selected as a Future Professional, and earned a trip to Las Vegas for Paul Mitchell Caper where she was able to take advanced classes in coloring, cutting, and styling. During this class, she was able to take classes from Collin Caruso, Danielle Piniarski, and Heather Kaanoi along with many others! Ellie is passionate about continuing education. She is excited to take advantage of Theory’s education-based concept: learning from both fellow stylists, and outside educators.
