Suzi earned an Associates Degree in Fine Arts from Frederick Community College. Her love of color and creativity brought her to the cosmetic arena, where she began her career as a makeup artist for Estee Lauder. Her ambition to advance her craft to include hairstyling led her to The Temple, Paul Mitchell’s School of Cosmetology, in Frederick’s Historic District.
While studying at the The Temple, Suzi joined Sam Wong Salon as an assistant. She earned a spot on the floor as a stylist and makeup specialist after graduating in 2008. She is great with both men's and women's hair, with a style ranging from creative to conservative, and continues to enjoy makeup application and updos for every kind of event -- particularly weddings!
Suzi makes continuing education a priority, and takes additional classes through companies such as Graham Webb, Davines, and TIGI. She is certified under Organic Color Systems as a Master Colorist, and has taken classes specializing in tricology, the study of hair loss. She has volunteered her hair and makeup expertise behind the scenes at various local fundraisers and fashion weeks in both Maryland and Virginia. She is now a certified Advanced Organic Way Colorist.
Suzi places importance in listening to her clients and and assisting them in achieving a healthy, stylish look that they love and can also work with at home.
