I'm Lina, and I am a master colorist, extension artist and hair stylist based in Stoneham, MA. I strive to empower women to express their inner beauty through their hair. My goal is to create a warm and welcoming environment where you feel cared for, pampered and listened to.
I was born in Bogota, Colombia, where I grew up and got a degree in Psychology and Fine Arts. I landed in Washington D.C. in 2000, where I began an exciting new adventure in the beauty industry. I started working for Aveda Beauty Salons in Northern Virginia. After seven years I moved to Boston, where I call home.
I have a confession, I absolutely love my job. It can be addicting to make people feel beautiful! I believe that your hair should not only reflect your personality, but your lifestyle as well. I absolutely love to learn new techniques and trends to help you to achieve the look of your dreams. Always with a warm and caring spirit, I thoughtfully listen to each of my guests who sits in my chair, and then beautifully bring their vision to life. Whether it be a style, haircut, color, multidimensional colors, highlights or extensions, my guests will always leave my salon truly happy.
My guests love to hear about my educational adventures! Over the years, I have trained in various fields like, New Trends, Color, Color Corrections, and Extensions. I am a master colorist by OYA, Matrix, Tocco Magico and Aveda. I am certified in sew in hair extensions, cosmetic extensions, and I am expert in Keratin Complex and Brazilian Blowout. I've developed a unique and creative approach to my work, embracing strong shapes that range from classic to contemporary to bring out each guest's inner beauty.
When I'm not working, you 'll find me spending time on personal projects like house transformations (love rearrange my furniture...), crafts, knitting, or trying new recipes in the kitchen. I also love to be outdoors, and try to go on a nice hike or long bike ride whenever I can to get away from the city and enjoy nature! I am also the mom of two amazing boys. I count my blessings each morning, and I'm so grateful to have found a career that allows me to live a life full of fun and creativity.
See you soon!
