Meet Lynn…

I have worked professionally with hair and makeup since 1981. I moved to Charlottesville in 1983 to manage an upscale salon for seven years. I opened my studio in 2010 after working in a prominent salon for 20 years.Throughout the years I have attended conferences, conventions, seminars and workshops from New York to London and many other cities which has been an ongoing and uplifting experience. It’s been exciting being an integral part of the ever-changing world of hair design and makeup and I’ve loved helping people look and feel their best.

In 2007 I decided to expand my hair practice to include permanent cosmetics as a result of The “Look Good, Feel Better” (LGFB) program. I was honored when I was approached by the American Cancer Society (ACS) in 1999 to help facilitate the Look Good Feel Better program which helps women with appearance related side effects due to cancer treatment. It is so gratifying helping women feel more confident and beautiful by helping them create natural looking eyebrows and the illusion of lashes. I knew that there were other people in the community that had visual or physical limitations that would also benefit from having their eyebrows or eyeliner applied permanently. I felt that I had a gift to share and the next step was clear to me, so I chose to get my training to provide permanent cosmetics to those who desired its results.

I worked with the Department of Professsional and Occupational Regulation (DPOR) Board in Richmond to help Virginia become one of the first states to regulate permanent cosmetics, to require a more extensive training program than other states, and to require licensing. As a result of that effort I am now one of the first permanent cosmetic professsionals to be licensed and certified in the state of Virginia. I am a certified member of the highly respected Society of Permanent Cosmetics Professionals (SPCP), am associated with the American Academy of Micropigmentation (AAM), and attend annual conferences and conventions to stay current in the industry.

Throughout the years I have had advanced training including becoming the first in Virginia to be certified for Microblading by Internationally Acclaimed Branko Babic founder of PhiBrows in Europe. Charlottesville dermatologists, physicians and plastic surgeons have referred their patients to me for permanent cosmetics.

My clients love that they can come to my Studio for permanent eyeliner, eyebrows and/or to get a hairstyle that helps them to look and feel their best. The two industries have been a nice complement to fulfill a clients needs by enhancing their natural beauty.
