Chris Maddox

Owner/Educator/Chief Style Expert

His philosophy: Hair is like art in motion. It’s like a raw material having its own textures, patterns and lengths. Everyone is a different canvas and the challenge is to create something that helps them feel beautiful and fresh. Chris envisions style through the eyes of a tailor rather than a hair stylist. The "trend" doesn’t always translate into what’s right for each person but "suitability" never fails. The style must be a great fit for each person, equally unique and accentuated with just the right touch of color. He believes firmly in working with your texture instead of against it which allows the person to more easily replicate the look at home.

Since 1995, Chris has devoted a mountain of time to training with industry legends like Jacques Dessange, Frederic Fekkai, Bumble and bumble, Whittemore House Salon, Pierre Michel, Peter Coppola, L’Oreal and Oribe. The list of top notch education goes on and on. He thoroughly enjoys the challenge of learning anything new but also just plain has fun being a student of his craft. Besides being the student, he has also traveled from coast to coast teaching the amazing techniques he’s learned. Teaching is another outlet that has helped him develop as a mentor and keep the staff motivated and current. It’s a wonderful feeling to help the people that you work with grow and succeed. You can feel his enthusiasm by being a client or just watching from across the room. You feel the confidence and enthusiasm soon after sitting in his chair and know that your best interest is at heart. Chris wants the client to feel like the star not the stylist. Outside of work, Chris cherishes spending time with his two charming little girls and beautiful wife Ashley.

Level 2 Style Expert

Laid back with a sense of uniqueness is what Jessica is all about. She loves piecing her daily wardrobe together to make it her own. "Anything that can be put together in 5 minutes is me". You can tell she has a natural knack for fashion. Jessica keeps you guessing about her trendiness. It’s ever-changing because she enjoys not having a set style. Of course, that goes for hair too. Having naturally thick and wavy hair, you’ll spot her wearing it in a number of ways. Sexy loose and tousled, big Victoria Secret curls, a messy bun or even a couple cool braids intertwined in a voluminous blowout. She started her career in 2006 and came to us in 2011. Jessica pays special attention to listening to the needs of her clients. She wants them to feel like they have their dream hair when they walk out the door. Outside work, the creativity spills into her home making. She loves to decorate and is constantly finding new ways to spruce up the house. One of her favorite things about the salon is the openness of communication we have with each other. She likes how everyone throws ideas around during the day to help each other out and keep things fresh.
