my story, summer o

the holistic hair boss

I got into the hair business because I love beauty...

I got into the Holistic business because I love clean, luxurious beauty.

My interest in beauty began early, watching my mother and grandmother paint their lips and eyes and coif their hair. Beauty was more than just a consideration, it was a part of everyday life, a time-honored ritual. My grandmother sent me to cosmetology school, and I immediately fell in love with hair, styling and the many ways I could bring more beauty in this world.

Using luxury color lines and styling aids from Oway Organics and Original Mineral, I deliver 100% grey coverage, brilliant color and shiny, healthy hair. These luxury, organic products produce the best results without the toxic ingredients.

I have more than 20 years’ experience in hair styling, but learning never stops. I travel across the globe to learn from the best, such as Oway Spazio, in Bologne Italy, and see first-hand where my products come from.

I am inspired by sustainability, eco-fashion and finding the healthiest ways to create clean, beautiful hair for every client. Non-toxic products are the future of hair and beauty. I can't wait to show you how good it looks.
