HAIRSTYLIST

Hey I’m Matthew! I have been involved with the beauty industry since I was 14 years old. I started off my career journey here in Waxhaw, by becoming a makeup artist. Throughout years I found my life’s passion, doing hair. Now every day I go to work to make people feel great about themselves, it thrills me! It makes my soul shine when I can cut someone’s hair or change their outlook and boost their self-esteem. Runways and fashion shows are fun, but I could not imagine myself doing anything other than what I am doing right now. Working with people one on one to help fulfill their dreams.

HAIRSTYLIST

I am a graduate of Continental School of Beauty in New York. Growing up I always loved art and hair-styling, from there my passion for cosmetology took off! With an eye for creative hair-styling, I specialize in updos as well as helping you create your everyday styles while in my chair. I love getting to know and understanding the personalities and lifestyles of my clients. This is key when working with my clients to create the best looks and styles for each individual.

ESTHETICIAN

Several years ago, as a client, I had received my first facial. Walking out of the spa, I realized skin care was where my life passion resided. In the past I, myself, had struggled with improper skin care, like so many do. After experiencing this personal eye opening experience, I pursed my career in esthetics, earning my Esthetician License in 2008. After gaining the expertise, I had learned skin is the largest organ involved in the human body, healthy skin care is vital to your overall health. Passing on the knowledge of maintaining, preserving and repairing skin; all while pampering others really is fulfilling. I’ve realized that when people look better, they feel better! So it’s a great feeling to be able to contribute to a person’s self esteem and self image. Looking forward to meeting you soon at the Colorbar Hair Salon and Day Spa!
