Thriving in the industry for almost 20 years, Renee has built her reputation as being skilled in BOTH cutting and coloring. She has studied internationally at Vidal Sasson in London to advance her precision cutting techniques, and at master cutting classes in Toronto. During this time she found time to train in the states also, attending a Deva class in NYC. Deva provided Renee with the inspiration to further her knowledge on achieving frizz free healthy hair, be it curly or straight. Dry cutting is a trained skill towards creating accurate movement and longevity to a haircut. "I am committed to continuing education on the dry cutting technique to keep my clients and myself inspired".

Renee has attended many master color classes at the Wella and L'Oreal Studio in New York City, as well as a Master class for Goldwell. These classes provided additional advanced techniques towards the ultimate goal of achieving the client’s desired look. "My foils are state of the art, creating beautiful dimension and movement to any style my clients might have".

Believing strongly that “less is MORE”, Renee actively seeks out new inspiration daily in order to keep her on the pulse of the fashion and the beauty industry. She doesn’t need to look farther than the artistry of her own hand-picked, “all-star” staff of artists. Renee’s passion and talents make her a valued leader of an inspiring team of stylists at… The Salon Studio.
