ANDREA – Owner, Color Director, Master Stylist & Extensionist
I am the proud owner of Belle de Jour Salon. I am a very creative woman with a colorful history who loves a good story! I had the privilege of training at Louis Licari in Manhattan and Van Michael Salon here in Buckhead. Apprenticing was hard work but I learned the science of color formulation and the art of color application in a very hands on fashion.
I love being behind the chair as much as I love running my amazing salon! I opened Belle de Jour in 2011 in the middle of a family crisis. When our eight year old had leukemia and was going through chemotherapy, we are blessed and I a proud mother of a childhood cancer survivor! I share this here because it is a huge part of what Belle de Jour Salon is to me, it has always been my happy place and I love sharing it with my team and all of you! This salon, my team and my amazing clients helped me survive the hardest time in my life and giving back is a huge part of who we are! Each year in September we do fundraising for CURE Childhood Cancer, to date we have raised over $50,000!
Life is funny and in many ways I am glad I was forced to rebuild my clientele, it has kept me current and I have a passion for continued education.In 2017 on a whim I bought a first class ticket out to LA and took a class in Beverly Hills! It was my first hand tied hair extensions class with Kacey Welch, I was hooked! I find her technique to be the most natural looking beaded row extensions! I practice all the time and it is truly a passion.
I am currently accepting new Extensions and Highlight guests.
