A color specialist and stylist for over 20 years, Claudette trained and began her career working for some top salons in Los Angeles California before relocating to Portland. Although she loves all aspects of hair, she is recognized as a color expert with a focus on blondes and corrective color. She describes herself as “a hair painting fiend” and balayage her creative medium of choice.
Trained in the techniques of Vidal Sassoon, she utilizes her unique artistic vision and impeccable attention to detail to create styles individualized to her clients needs. A life long learner, Claudette is continuously honing her craft and has traveled nationally and internationally to garner the best advanced education to bring back to the salon. She prides herself on her exceeding clients’ expectations while making them feel comfortable in her chair.
In addition to her extensive training in all things hair, Claudette has also completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Design, which is evident in her keen sense of color, shapes, and proportions. When not creating magic behind the chair, Claudette enjoys flexing her culinary muscles, parler français, live music, the arts and spending time with her three rescues: kitties Max and Iggy, and one eyed pup and main squeeze Rudy.
