Becoming a stylist for some is a natural progression.  Hair transforms into art and hairdressing becomes a stylist’s expression of their art.  This is true for Patricia.

Having grown up in a rural community in Maine, at the age of eighteen she migrated to Boston.  She knew city life was calling.  She attended and graduated from Mass Art with her degree in fine arts. It was during that time, after graduation, and before full time employment, that she discovered hairdressing.

The similarities were overwhelming.  She could paint, sculpt, design, create new looks with every client.  She found her path.

Education is important to Patricia and she seeks it with every spare moment in her busy life. Having completed her precision cutting from Sassoon, and receiving her color training certificates from L’Oréal Balayage Expert, Lived in Color and Pretty Little Ombre.  She has trained with the world’s best.
