Cindy went to a magnet school with cosmetology as a major. Her mom liked the sound of a career in hair but loved the idea of post-high school job security. So at the age of 16, Cindy started studying and quickly realized hair was her future. “When I first started studying cosmetology, it was fun because I was so young. I didn’t truly appreciate the craft until I dived deep into color several years later,” she said.
The Early Years
Before mastering color, Cindy worked at Supercuts and a small family-owned hair salon. Both places focused mainly on haircuts. One day, a close stylist friend offered to train Cindy in color. She accepted, and the rest is history. Today, Cindy’s blonding and balayage talents are second to none.
Cindy enjoys it when a client wants something dramatic. The project is exciting, but she loves to earn the trust. “I honestly prefer when the client has a mess on their head. Or when a brunette wants to go bright blonde or the other way around. It makes me happy to see my client’s excitement after a big change,” she said.
The Magic Touch
Speaking of dramatic changes, Cindy enjoys color corrections. This is a rare trait among stylists. While most modifications simply take hair a few shades lighter or darker, some are associated with box-dye distress. With a few brushstrokes, Cindy can turn someone’s whole day around. Satisfying.
Dimensional, natural, and the lived-in color is Cindy’s specialty. It’s taken continuous classes and many hours to master her trademark look. She has some of the most highly reviewed and often requested pictures from our social media. While the training has been intense, the results speak for themselves.
Get Out of Her Way
When not behind the chair, Cindy is most comfortable out on a rink. She plays in a full-contact roller derby league in the crucial position of pivot. Pivot means she is a two-in-one player. When her teammates need some assistance, Cindy switches jobs to help. A perfect role for Cindy. She is an essential member of her league and her THS team!
Spare Time Activities
When able, she spends time on her family ranch. She takes care of many animals, including horses, goats, chickens, roosters, ducks, geese, and dogs. She also savors her yoga and exercise time. Above all, Cindy relishes time with her boyfriend and pets. Then, it’s back to the salon.
