Your hair is often the first thing people notice about you. Yet most women don't love their hair, wasting time and money at different salons or staying with one hairdresser who may simply lack training. Eventually many give up, attributing the hair woes to age, genetics, or a curse. The problem is usually quite simple - the wrong shape and color. Your face, head shape, skin tone and hair are unique and require a unique approach to all work together. Our Painted Cut technique is designed to address this challenge. We have worked with thousands of clients over the past 30 years, becoming problem solvers and artisans of hair. Schedule a consultation at one of our salons or virtually, to learn how you can love your hair.

The Painted Cut is our proprietary approach to cut & color, designed by Eva to seamlessly blend the two distinct crafts into one beautiful creation. The hair is first cut to the shape and contours of your face and head, then depth and contrast is created with balayage highlights and lowlights. We take inspiration for every haircut from the craft of an expert tailor. Hair falls from the head like fabric from the body, and precision cutting is akin to creating a custom suit that lays beautifully and enhances the silhouette. The cut is then painted for depth and dimension, to strengthen and soften, correct and perfect facial features. It all leads to that special moment when a client gazes in the mirror and LOVES her hair! We then teach her how to work with it at home, so she can fall in love daily
