Inspired by fashion, beauty, and travel, Missy brings a worldly perspective to hair. Armed with the knowledge that there is a perfect style for everyone, Missy helps to determine exactly what it is you’re looking for and manages to execute it harmoniously with your vision meeting hers. It’s just a matter of sitting in her chair, and letting the magic happen.
After attaining a BA in Women’s Studies from UCSC, Missy realized that her true calling and creative inspiration was in hair styling. Being that her first haircuts were on Barbie dolls and first blow dry styles were on her mom and sisters, it was a natural progression. Following UCSC, she attended beauty school and then moved to San Francisco to apprentice at top salon Cowboys & Angels where she learned myriad techniques including Vidal Sassoon precision cutting to funky razor detailed Bumble & Bumble styles. Lured back to the beach and a love of the sun, Missy began working in some of the top Santa Cruz salons and built a solid clientele. Nowadays, Missy is a master stylist at Salon on the Square, Santa Cruz’s top, award-winning hair salon in the heart of downtown.Missy continually expands her skills through classes taken nationwide and most recently completed an intensive balayage color class and a wedding styling class focusing on modern brides and updo styles.
You can also find Missy lending her talents to local fashion and beauty blog, The Penny Rose, where she serves as fashion stylist and hairstylist. Her many projects with The Penny Rose include the Good Times fall fashion issues of 2011 and 2013, Synergy Organic Clothing Fall 2013 catalog, and numerous high fashion photo shoots around the Bay Area. In addition to hair styling, Missy is available for personal wardrobe consultations, closet makeovers, event styling, personal styling and shopping, and packing for travel. She is also available to hire for hair styling, fashion styling, and wardrobe department work on commercials, industrials, fashion photo shoots, magazine editorials, films, television, and more.
