Hello, there! It is so nice to meet you. I am Andie and I create beautiful blondes out of Hunter Salon in San Luis Obispo, California. Unlike many stylists, hair was not a passion of mine right from the start. I did not practice haircuts and styling on my dolls, sibling or friends. In fact, I was inspired to go to cosmetology school so that I could learn makeup, which they barely covered in school. I went into school vowing to never do highlighting after graduating, but little did I know that Blonding would become my passion. I love it!
I have been in the beauty industry for almost 10 years now and my desire is to offer guests beautiful hair in a relaxing and beautiful space. Whether you are looking for a family- or work-free zone to sip delicious coffee and peruse magazines while freshening up your color, or enjoy winding down with a glass of wine and good conversation while I brighten up your blonde, I would like to provide that place of refuge for you. It is important to me to offer a relaxing, fun-yet professional environment, dedicating each appointment to one client so my undivided attention is on you. You get the one-on-one attention personal services deserve.
I love what I do because not only do I get to deliver realistic and beautiful results, it allows me to be creative with my attention to detail, and meticulous color placement. I specialize in bright, dimensional, and lower maintenance blonding services, with a focus on health and integrity of the hair. I am certified in the Brazilian Blowout Smoothing treatment, which is my favorite smoothing treatment to deliver shine and movement to frizzy and unruly hair. Each year, I like to keep up with education whether online or in-person sessions, to ensure my skills are sharpened and up to date. This is a personal focus of my business to offer the latest products and techniques.
When not in my salon home you can find me getting coffee or drinks downtown with my friends, hanging out at my parent’s house in Paso Robles, or spending quality time with my husband, Matthew. I am family-centered, passionate, and value authenticity; you will often find me making jokes about that-one-little-nail-sticking-out that catches my attention.
What’s your blonde status? If you are looking to get rid of brass, or take your blonde to the next level, I would be happy to book a consultation with you!
