"Art is when we do work that matters in a creative way, in a way that touches people and changes them for the better." -Seth Godin
After graduating high school in 2009, Andrea wasted no time in moving to Birmingham, AL where she enrolled in the Aveda Institute and graduated within a year top of her class. After graduating cosmetology school she moved back to her home town of Oxford, Alabama with high hopes. She started work immediately in a small salon and within just a few short months Andrea realized her big dreams would never take place if she did not leave to explore. With bags packed and a full heart she moved her life to Atlanta where she landed at Soda Salon in May 2011.
Andrea’s in depth training includes completion of the Soda Protégé Program, Men’s Cut Workshop with the Head of Men’s Department at Aveda, Kurt Keuffner, Make up Artistry Workshop with Lawrie Wallace, and multiple cut and color classes throughout the years with Redken Professiona, Euphora, Rene Furterer, Kerastase and Davines. She is trained in product knowledge with Alterna, Rene Furterer, Davines, Euphora and Kerastase. Andrea is also our Soda Salon Ambassador for Rene Furterer.
In February 2013 Andrea completed her first runway at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City with a team from Rene Furterer. Since then she has worked on many runways with Prabal Gurung, David Tlale, Louise Goldin, Band of Outsiders, Costella Tagleopetra, and Public School NYC. She also has worked side by side with celebrity stylist such as Anthony Turner, Didier Maliage, and Nelson Vercher. Andrea was hand picked in April 2015 as lead Ambassador and flown to LA to assist Artistic Director for Rene Furterer, Marisol Suarez, on stage as her debut in America. Andrea has a passion for others and is our salon charity organizer. She has put together multiple parties with all proceeds benefiting local charities such as Hands Across Atlanta, The Drake House and Children's hospital of Atlanta!
