Who We Are

About Us

Wendy Amdal

Owner + Master Stylist

Wendy lives in the realm of a creative mind and is moved to create beauty in much of what she does.  She is highly perceptive to the relationship between color, form and texture in her environment and utilizes her understanding of these complex characteristics in the art of hairdressing.

Wendy’s experiences have involved the fashion world which she sees as an integral part of what she does as a hairdresser.  As a young stylist she felt it was important to travel and learn different cultures and interpretations of fashion.  She has attended Pret’-Porte in Paris and sat at the table with editors of Vogue Magazine.  She has performed and received standing ovation in New York from our country’s most elite stylists.  She has served on the fashion committee for that exclusive organization, doing national press shows, photoshoots and international shows involving top stylists from around the globe.  She was awarded a plaque from an international hairdressing group from Europe, giving her the title “Master of the Craft”.

Along with 2000 other stylists, Wendy attended a rare show presented by the industries most iconic hairdresser Vidal Sassoon, and his artistic team.  Wendy was unexpectedly singled out of the audience and summoned onto the stage. Vidal,  having seen Wendy’s work on one of the models,  wanted to meet and acknowledge her for her artistry.   He then presented her work to the audience…untouched.  An incredible honor she will never forget.  Vidal was also a member of the aforementioned organization, of which Wendy was later invited for membership.

These, among many experiences have played an important part of who Wendy is as a stylist today.  There have been many opportunities presented to her for different paths, but, ultimately she choose to remain in her hometown salon which she has owned for over 40 years.
