For Leah, her love for hair styling started early. Even during high school, starting at age 15, she took on multiple salon occupations ranging from shampoo to personal assistant. Leah attended beauty school on Long Island, NY, graduating in 2006. While at beauty school, she was a member in Skills USA, competing in multiple hair competitions. Since then, Leah has grown a strong passion for delivering an unforgettable customer experience, as well as a deep love for her craft.
When she joined the team at Jessica Todd in 2013, Leah was introduced to Balayage, a French technique of highlighting. Leah draws inspiration from every client individually, taking into consideration how their hair moves, how light hits the their layers, even their eye and skin color. From bright sandy blondes to sun-kissed brunettes; each client is her personal piece of art work with tailored and carefully placed hand painted highlights.
Leah believes in continuing her education to provide the best and most innovative services to her guests. Since being a part of the JT team, she took her career to a greater level and became a certified L’Oreal Professional Balayage Artist. This extensive education, which consisted of hands-on training at the academy in Soho NYC over a years time, was taught by national experts in Balayage, including Jessica Todd herself. Leah is also a L;Oreal Certified Hair Color Expert, making her one of the most knowledgeable stylist when it comes to color.
“Becoming a member of this salon and working so closely under such experts has introduced me to so many things that have only fueled my flame in becoming the best I can be for my clients, myself, and this industry.“
