Renèe Marie Bacchini

I love being an artist, sculptor, and painter with hair. With over 20 years of experience, I have never lost the love for my work and its transformative qualities. My influence as a stylist includes Sassoon cutting, advanced hair color training, Aveda color, multiple art classes, and the world around me. I appreciate working with different hair textures, from the finest of fine, to the thick straight hair, to the tightest of coiled curls. I have an eye for color and advanced techniques for placement. I am skilled at color correction, creative color, and bleach. I cut and color hair to bring out an individual’s natural beauty and express who they are. The client relationship is key to my work.
