Artistic Team

Heather

 I am proud to be the owner and a hairstylist at Namaste Salon and Spa. I have been in the hair industry for over 20 years. In 2007 I opened my first salon called Sixx Salon. It was a small shop and I knew one day I wanted to take my vision as a salon owner to a grander level. With the 2012 opening, Namaste Salon and Spa is that vision.My team and I have created what we feel is the whole salon experience. We work as a team with the highest of standards and a love and passion for hair. Our clientele are our number one priority. We want you to step into Namaste and feel pampered and that your hair needs are met. And when leaving, we want you to feel beautiful and rejuvenated.We look forward to meeting you.

 What a privilege to be working with the team at Namaste. I have been a stylist since 1997 and added the role of salon manager in 2007.I absolutely love this industry. Not only do I get to do what I love each day as a hairstylist, but I also get to work with an amazingly talented team that is just as passionate about doing hair. To me, every head of hair is a new canvas. It allows me to be the artist that I am. It is a great feeling to see a client look and feel beautiful at their best.I believe in thorough consultations. It is the key to a successful salon experience. It builds trust and a connection which allows the client to get the most out of their experience in the salon.I also believe in continued advanced education. I make it a priority, knowing that to always be learning and growing keeps the creativity alive. Advanced training in color, foiling techniques and hair cutting by L'Oreal Professionals, Big Sexy Hair, Aquage and Paul Mitchell allows me to give you a cut, color and style that is truly beautiful. 

Kyli

Hello, my name is Kyli and I've been in the beauty industry since 2005. As a child I grew up in the salon world. My mother was a stylist and I took every opportunity to tag along with her to watch her transform people. While other kids were riding bikes outside, I was trying to give my dog a perm.After beauty school, at the wonderful Gene Juarez Academy, I was invited to stay and become an instructor. The experience of teaching was incredible. I stayed at the North Seattle campus for four years, then decided to move on to building my own clientele and creating beauty myself.I love special occasion hair. Weddings are the most fun for me. I love being a part of a couple's big day. I love when a bride looks at her hair and knows how beautiful she is.I'm always looking forward to meeting new people and creating long friendships. I love the talented team I work with and am excited to see what we can do! 

Genessee

Hi I'm Genessee! I've been in the hair industry since 2007 and I love it. The fact that I will never know everything there is to know about hair keeps me excited and passionate about my craft. I received the best education at The Gene Juarez Academy of Beauty in North Seattle and continued on with their advanced training specializing in hair cutting. I've attended many classes with L'Oreal Professionnel educators ranging from color, styling, and specialty cutting.I enjoy the challenge of color which includes coming up with a formula that works for my client's needs and the actual application from ombre and balayage to the simplest retouch. I pride myself on my consultations, asking the important questions to get you to your goal is key. A maintenance trim or a drastic style change will always be met with the same confidence each time. 

Travis

I started my hairdressing career in 1997, and have been a part of the L'Oreal Professional Artistic Team since 2004. As an educator, I travel around the country where I train with other artistic members, as well as teach other professional stylists. I really enjoy educating fellow stylists as well as clients in the latest hair trends.I specialize in Balayage, a hand-painting coloring technique that gives hair beautiful dimension, and graceful grow-out. I also enjoy doing wedding and special occasion hair. I am proud to be a part of the Namaste Team and look forward to meeting new people and spreading my love of hairdressing.
