She formulates color with the precision of a scientist and the enthusiasm of a true artist. It is this combination of unmatched skill and burning passion that distinguish her from the norm and maker her an in-demand color Rock Star. Renee believes in strict attention to detail, precise technique and personalization- "There is a shade of blonde (brunette, red, pink, blue, grey) for everybody." She has cultivated the inate ability to recognize even the most miniscule detail in the undertones of her client's skin. She then customizes the proper color mixture and application to create the exact look each client desires, in a way that compliments their individual complexion and eye color.
"It can be as simple as a lustrous shade of dark brown or as complex as multi-colored mermaid hair, I always work with each individuals complexion when preparing my color mix. No two people have the exact same color combination, even if the end result appears very similar to the eye. My goal is to create a cohesive and gorgeous final result that amplifies not just the beauty of my clients hair, but their their facial features as well."
