SCHEDULE: Monday + Tuesday 9:30am-5:30pm & Thursday + Saturday 9am-12pm Owner of Flipp Salon Apothecary * Founder of Botanic Providence * Herbalist, Hair and Make-up Artist, Musician. I have studied with many Master Stylists in a wide range of methodology and technique, from Toni & Guy, Aveda, Vidal Sassoon, Trevor Sorbie and most recently in the Spring of 2022 with Jayne Matthews of Edo Salon. In 2005 I moved back to the States, and dreamed about opening a studio where I could practice all of my passions in one space, and in 2011 Flipp Salon Apothecary was born. Hair and makeup are two of my favorite expressions of art as I see it more like 3D painting and sculpture, with the added benefit of giving the person in my chair an experience of well being, community and joy. As an Herbalist, I strive to give a truly holistic experience to my clients, as I firmly believe that true 'beauty" is a feeling, a state of being. A choice of self expression not conforming to constructed ideals of beauty, rather re-defining them to one's own uniqueness. It comes from the inside and radiates outward, and it begins with balance. I have been a practicing Herbalist since 2006, have attained multiple certifications, although my plant path began much earlier. **The stylists at Flipp are a collaborative of independent artists who set their own rates.

SCHEDULE: Monday 11am-5pm - Tuesday & Wednesday Noon-7pm - Saturday 10am-4pm Hair Designer, Color Specialist and lover of Curls. *FKA - Kelly* As a stylist, my priority is to be the expert of your hair. I want to listen to understand your goals and concerns, discover your personality and lifestyle to deliver a hairstyle that makes you feel more like yourself. Since starting my hair career in 2015, I have constantly invested time to learn new techniques for cuts and colors. My background in chemistry helps with formulating color and creating effective styling techniques. Some of my specialties include lived-in blondes, balayage, vivid colors, intro to curly hair journeys, razor cuts and shears over comb techniques. I am thrilled to be a part of a salon that can achieve your hair goals while using low toxic, plant based, plastic free products. When I'm not thinking about hair, I'm probably thinking about food. I cook regularly and grew up in a family owned restaurant. I'm also a huge advocate for mental health and strive to create space for my clients to feel open and comfortable. My other interests include exploring nature, singing, watching anime, and sketching. **The stylists at Flipp are a collaborative of independent artists who set their own rates.
