Hair Stylist - Styling Specialist
Tara has joined our team in a new role at Antoine du Chez, Styling Specialist. This new roll was developed to help assist our Service Providers to accommodate our guests and provide them with exceptional service.
Tara’s services usually start with a shampoo where her scalp massages are to die for! Tara plans to work her way up and join the apprentice program to become a color specialist at Antoine du Chez. Tara has proven to be a team player with a desire to help all in need, without any direction.
Tara is a Colorado native and attended Northeastern Junior College for cosmetology. She loves to learn all she can and goes to as much continuing education as possible. Some of her highlights in education and creative collaboration are her attendance at the Las Vegas International Beauty Show in 2014 and she has become a part of the Antoine du Chez Creative Team where she volunteers her time for Denver Fashion Week.
I started my career back in Europe after graduating beauty school in 1995. I had a Vidal Sassoon based training then but have been fortunate enough to further my education thru the years with Paul Mitchell, Toni &Guy, Wella, Rusk, Aveda just to name a few. However, I feel one never fully graduates in our business. There is always more to learn, be that a technical, social or some other skill. I get inspired by my surroundings the most. Back when I was still an apprentice my mentor taught me “When you cut hair, it doesn’t matter which way the wind blows your work has to look and be perfect!” I take that to heart. I do like to combine those classic roots with wearable modern and chic. I like to have a very thorough consultation to start with and make sure my guest and I have the same understanding. Besides hair my other beauty love is makeup. I love the enhancement and transformation one is able to do with makeup. It is only natural to me to combine these two loves as a hair and makeup artist. I just recently moved from Florida where I frequently participated in fashion shows and also specialized in bridal and special occasion hair and makeup.
