Stylist Education and Customer Service! Always challenging myself to advance and keep current on all new trends and techniques. Love to have thorough consultations, help curly girls embrace their curls as well as creating shapes on long hair to allow movement and style! Love color, hair painting, foil work to create dimensional color, color blocking, and Keratin smoothing treatments.  Cutting edgy looks and detailing as well as texturizing is what I do!

Master Artist

With more than 20 years experience in the beauty industry as an advanced educator, Master Artist and Makeup Artist, Gretchen holds herself to the highest standards. She prides herself on her attention to detail and special elements that make each look unique. “I always customize my work based on individual facial shape and stature.” “My philosophy is: you can have any length you want, as long as it is the right shape.” “I am always looking for inspiration and have an eye for upcoming trends as well as harnessing the classics.” Gretchen studied at Vidal Sassoon Advanced Academy in Santa Monica and feels privileged to have studied under some of the best mentors in the industry. She has studied at the “Harvard of Hair”, Bumble and Bumble University and became a Network Educator learning advanced skills to share with “the team”. Gretchen was also Creative Director for the esteemed Alexandre de Paris in the Metro DC area.

“I specialize in The Dry Cutting Technique as taught by John Sahag and Jaque Dessange; a technique that has revolutionized hair cutting. I also specialize in all types of color, color correction, and fantasy color. I have experience in editorial and film work.”

Her personal interests include all things creative.
