Oh, you like your hair blonde, you say? Then Avery would love to meet you. She has been perfecting her art for almost two years now and loves specialty color, especially balayage. On top of loving blonde looks, she also appreciates those Rapunzel locks. Whether you are making a significant change or just your standard trim, her hands will work their magic on those extra-long manes.
When Avery is not painting hair, she is painting canvas. She takes her love for color and turns it into acrylic masterpieces.

Have you ever met someone that is like a warm cup of coffee? If you haven’t, say hello to Danni!
