Samantha has been a stylist for 16 years.

Hey there, I can’t wait to meet you! I’m Sam, I've been happily working in the Northern Virginia region for some time.

 As someone who is often on the go, I understand that self and personal care is often something that we tend to save as a treat-yourself moment. That’s why I created a space that allows you to fully decompress and feel at ease. I want your ‘to do’ list to be the last thing on your mind. 

In my 15 years of working behind the chair, I have realized that personal connections and creativity go hand in hand. I specialize in creating cuts that maintain itself for long periods of time as well as color that gives dimension while appearing lived-in until I get to see you again. 

While most stylists offer a great first visit and solid maintenance thereafter, I see my role as your stylist differently. I strive to take the time to trend cast our goals for the next few visits. I work with each guest to find ways to feel fresh, address their concerns and deliver maximum output for minimal input in home care. Every visit we sit down and talk about you and your hair so we can shift our goals and results accordingly.

When I am not working in the salon I am often working with my hands. I have found that making and creating are what fills up my cup behind the chair and at home. I have found that learning to draw and paint has deeply influenced my approach to achieving your hair goals. Watch out for my little love note drawings in your mailboxes during the holidays!
