In Elizabeth’s book, blonder is better! She specializes in creating beautiful, natural looking highlights and always finishes a service with a voluminous a blow out that will keep your hair bouncy for days. When the weather permits, Elizabeth loves spending time in the sun at the beach and is a huge advocate of reducing, reusing and recycling!

Behind the chair for over 10 years, she quickly found another passion: educating and empowering other stylists while creating a team-based, supportive environment for them to grow. As the driving force behind Inspire, she focuses on growing her stylists and continues to push boundaries in the beauty industry.
