To offer a service that utilizes your hairs strengths to provide you intuitive shape and color. To help you take the guesswork out of styling your own hair. To connect deeply, and personally with each person I've been blessed by a visit with. To use my experiences to walk others through their own.
Owner, Delores Turnbow
I have been a licensed stylist since 2007, starting my career with the renowned Gary Manuel Aveda Academy in Seattle, WA.
I relocated to New York City in 2008 and quickly became the right hand man to remarkably talented Maria Barca of SELF SALON. SELF is Maria's solo venture after nearly 10 years working as celebrity stylist OSCAR BLANDI's primary assistant. Maria continues to mentor me to this day, even though we live across the country from each other. Every hairdresser should be so lucky to have found the mentor-ship I have. It was under Maria that I received my first textured hair certification
In 2012, I moved to Tempe, Arizona and have been happily working here ever since.
I named my studio after my daughter Birdie, who has the most beautiful curly hair. And when my own hair grew back curly after a 2017 breast cancer diagnosis (and again straightened out), I decided it was time to shift focus and do what I love: helping people work with this ever changing thing we call hair.
