Andrea found her passion for hair and makeup design when she was 17. Now 16 years later, her passion for it is just as strong.
Andrea was born and raised in Eastern Washington. She was given the amazing opportunity to start her apprenticeship in a very well established salon in Spokane. She spent 8 years there learning Vidal Sassoon, Rusk and TIGI cutting techniques, creative and corrective color placement, extensions, advanced perming and excellent customer service. The education was constant and so rewarding.
During that time, Andrea was a makeup artist and educator for Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics that gave her the opportunity to travel around the state to other salons and events. In 2006 she made the move to the Shoreline area. There she found her place at a reputable salon that gave her the opportunity to travel and receive education from some of the best in the industry, including Michael O'Rourke and Sam Brocato.
In 2011, she decided to make the move to go out on her own. After subleasing a salon for a year, in 2012 Soul Hair Design was born.
Her interests vary and is always looking for a new challenge. It is hard for Andrea to say what is her specialty because she tries to perfect each service that she offers. A bob cut to perfection is something that she has confidence in as well as creating an avant garde design. Complete make overs will usually make her dance with excitement. Andrea loves special occasion looks and has been dabbling in photoshoots. She is sensitive to the clients' needs and feels that when trust is developed, she will do her best work, putting in her heart and soul.
