Amber Gillespie HAIR & MAKEUP ARTIST

WHEN DID YOU START DOING HAIR? 2010

 

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO GET INTO THE BEAUTY INDUSTRY? My love for art, fashion, and being creative started at a very young age. I was always practicing hair and makeup on my friends and myself during high school. My love for this industry started with my passion, but now my clients are what inspire me - to collaborate together and find the look they feel confident in - whether they want to be seen has natural, mod, professional, grungy, wild, or beachy! Each client has their own look, which inspires me each and every time I start working with a client.

 

WHO ARE YOUR STYLE ICONS? The Olson Twins, Nicole Richie, Twiggy, & Audry Hepburn

 

WHAT STYLES AND HAIR TYPES DO YOU MOST ENJOY CREATING AND WORKING WITH? I am inspired by creating balayage, long beachy hair cuts, platinum hair and pop colors. I love cutting lobs and bobs and just finding the perfect color and cut that fits who you are!

 

FAVORITE Bb. PRODUCT: Thickening Dryspun Finish and HIO Dry Oil Finishing Spray!

 

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS: Over the years I have worked and taken classes with Aveda, Paul Mitchell, Vidal Sassoon, Bumble and bumble, Schwarzkopf, and various Instagram stars for both coloring and cutting. I have worked with Sephora and Mac Cosmetics, and I love doing make-up when I’m not doing hair.
