You may not know this, but Amy was the founding stylist for RIAH…way back when it was Salon Rage. She grew up with three sisters and so beauty routines and hairstyles were a huge part of her childhood. After high school, Amy attended the Corbin Institute of Cosmetology; graduating in 1996. She went on to work at a Salon in Southampton at age 18, where she met Donna.
Amy and Donna quickly became close friends and in March of 1999, Donna opened Salon Rage where Amy was her first employee. Amy has been with Donna ever since. #loyal!
Why did you decide to leave your job with Donna and take a chance on her new salon?
“Donna and I went from coworkers to close friends and when she asked me to go with her, of course I said yes.” Amy believed in Donna’s vision and in her as a stylist and leader.
You describe yourself in one word? Loyal.
Your friends describe you in one word? Talented.
Your clients describe you in one word? Precise.
What’s your favorite technique to use on clients?
“It’s a tie between short razor cuts and blowing out curly hair. Blowing out is instant gratification, and razored haircuts are more precise and edgy.”
“I take my work very seriously!”
What are your hopes for your career over the next five years?
Amy loves where she is right now–her clients, her schedule, her lifestyle. She’s worked hard to get to this point and doesn’t want too many things to change, other than the fact that she’s constantly learning new things to apply to her work.
Favorite Salon Memory?
“It’s hard to pick one; all of the late-night, post-shift hangouts with the girls after our workday.”
“Those are the moments coworkers truly become a family.”
Favorite salon product?
RIAH Boost, because its easy for clients to use. It gives volume without weighing down the hair and you really can’t use too much.
“The perfect product for clients to use at home!”
