Growing up Lindsay always knew she was interested in hair, however, her creative outlets were vast. It wasn’t until after pursuing her interest in traditional and digital art and earning an Associates degree in Art for Advertising at Macomb Community College that she turned her focus to cosmetology.
Lindsay attended Pivot Point’s Michigan College of Beauty in Troy, MI and completed her 1500 hours of education and training in April 2009. In early June 2009, Lindsay became a licensed professional and was immediately offered her first stylist position at Thru Luna’s Eyes Hair Studio in Ferndale, MI while also assisting the owner part-time. During her two and a half years at Luna’s, she honed her craft while learning and perfecting the art and application of fusion hair extensions, and was free to explore more non-traditional hair coloring and styling.
Lindsay highly values her traditional art background and knowledge saying, “I love that I can apply all of the basic design principles of color, texture, line, shape and form that I have been so accustomed to for many years to any medium, including hair. Those skills give me a unique perspective that allow me to approach each head as a sculpture.”
In November 2011 she joined the team at Beauty (SALON) by J. Lyle Ltd. in beautiful downtown Birmingham, MI. Although she was only at Beauty for about 7 months, she recognizes this move was a stepping stone in her career. Moving on from working part-time as an assistant to solely a stylist and being the only stylist at Beauty to offer hair extension services gave her confidence and helped her understand how valuable she was to her team. For the first time in her career she felt that she truly had what it takes to go after her career goals and dreams. The staff at Beauty (SALON) became more like family even in her short time there before relocating to NYC. Lindsay has continued to service her Michigan clients every 6-8 weeks since leaving the mitten state.
Currently, Lindsay is working as a freelance hair extension technician and an educator for Euro So.Cap. If you are looking for the highest quality hair extension services in NYC, Lindsay is available in salon by appointment only at ENVE Beauty Lounge in Little Italy, Lali Lali Salon in NoHo or privately in her home loft hair studio space in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
