Tess’ passion for art and design began early in her childhood. Having grown up surrounded by a large family of costume designers, dancers, artist and musicians the idea of the body, being itself, an expression of art is core to her vision. This can express itself in bold fashion colors, romantic bayalage highlights or in the understated elegance of a classic bob, but ultimately in order to succeed her art needs to reflect the beauty of form and face, and flow naturally from the unique personality. Taking the time to know her clients is a key step in her hair design process.

Paring this perspective with an unrelenting pursuit to perfect her technique has brought Tess a tremendous amount of success in her career. She has been requested as an instructor and guest educator to many salons in the Washington DC area along with judging the The AVEDA Institute Earth Month Fashion Show in both 2015 and 2016. In addition, she cut on stage at the international AVEDA congress in 2015.

As a leading stylist and educator, Tess knows that learning is a lifetime quest and is always seeking the latest in hair color technology and cutting technique, in order to bring her clients the styles that reflect their dynamic beauty within.
