Amy Wronski

@amyartski

Amy is our first stylist to have completed our apprenticeship program!  She’s an Aveda graduate who’s had her hands in hair ever since she was little.  If her friends weren’t being chased with velcro rollers or her American Girl Dolls weren’t being glamorized, then her mom was being chased for a trim.

Upon moving to Chicago from Michigan, her enthusiasm for hair only grew and she’s been dedicated ever since.  Her desire to make others feel comfortable and happy is the driving force behind her craftsmanship.  Whether you want sophistication or punk rock, subtle highlights or bold fashion colors, Amy is committed to customizing a style that’s 100% true to you.  Outside of the salon, you can find Amy playing the ukulele or walking her dog, Skippy.

  

Moira Muldowney 

Moira’s passion for doing hair sparked from her love of fashion and the arts. While attending Western Michigan University, she majored in Dark Room Photography along with Metals & Jewelry, and minored in Psychology. Having these studies in her back pocket, along with a 2-year apprenticeship and training in Keune Balayage, she continues to to build upon her broad spectrum of knowledge and skill. 

With her vintage inspired look, and red curly hair, she tends to draw in clients with natural texture, but also loves to do short, structured cuts to keep her inspiration balanced and well-rounded.  Her thoughtful and humorous demeanor allows her clients trust her and feel relaxed while she finds the perfect fit for each guest in her chair.
