Amanda "Will" Akerson

 

In 2006, with a platinum blonde bob, Will graduated from the Aveda institute. She joined our team the following year! Cosmetology for her is more than just hair; it’s making people feel great about themselves every day! Working with the Aveda line is a highlight for her, there are so many great products for hair and skin; but she loves the damage remedy line for keeping hair healthy between color treatments!

On the weekends you’ll catch her chasing her husband, three kids, and puppy around town! Will excels at all color services, and Brazilian blowouts! Keeping things natural and healthy is her specialty, especially in those “going grey” transitional years! If you don’t know what you want, Will’s your girl! Bring in a picture, or other inspiration and she’ll help you get the look you’ve always wanted!

 

“I really enjoy creating a natural look with hair color while keeping it healthy in the process.”
