Susan at Studio H in Studios West Salon Suites is passionate about the artistry of hair! She began working with the Knoxville Opera Company in 1999 with the wig department, and earned the title of Wig Master training through this venue. She has continued her theatrical hair skills through work with the University of Tennessee Opera Theatre and the Broadway in Knoxville series of shows. Finding the interest and love for hair beginning with the art of hair in the theatre, she was licensed and developed her skills for every day hair needs at the Aveda salon, Natural Alternatives. After a successful time honing her techniques and participating in as much continuing education as possible through Aveda and Natural Alternatives, she worked with a team of professionals at Salon Bior in west Knoxville. After several years at Salon Bior, she chose to venture out on her own to begin a new era at Studios West Salon Suites in Farragut, TN. From the outrageous in the University of Tennessee Opera Theatre programs, to the iconic characters of the Broadway in Knoxville series, to the classical looks of the Knoxville Opera Company’s productions, Susan pulls a vast volume of knowledge to address the needs of the everyday person.
Her primary passion is to find a person’s best look and customize his/her cut and color to maximize their time and energy. She is passionate about helping those experiencing all forms of hair loss, whether it stems from medical treatments or syndromes or disease, and loves to aid people in finding ways to normalize their look. Hair is an art that plays out through the application of color and the sculpture of cuts. Texturizing services, whether adding curl or smoothing with a keratin treatment, can really aid a person with ease of styling, and she is happy to incorporate these treatments into her offerings. Susan believes that color is meant to enhance a person’s look, whether to blend grey hair, emphasize natural features, or create an artistic statement that is bold. Special occasion hairstyles are a cinch with many tools from all of the theatrical demands of her career. Hair loss clients can rest assured that there are more options available when experiencing thinning or balding areas, and Susan is happy to recommend the best solution for the client, whether it includes hair extensions, hairpieces, fill products, or products that encourage hair growth. Being a part of a person’s wedding is such a privilege! Please browse the gallery to see examples of her work.
