Adrienne always knew she wanted to be a hairstylist, even as a little kid she worked in her mom’s salon sweeping floors and booking appointments for her. Since completing hair school, she has made it her mission to take in as much education and opportunities in the hair industry as possible. Adrienne has been featured in an Editorial Bridal Magazine, has worked as a backstage stylist for Doc Walker, and has travelled to different cities taking in education on Barbering, colour, editorial work, and more. Now, working as a Redken Educator, she is able to share her education with not only her clients but other stylists as well.
