Peggy Strauss

Owner, Operator and Hair Stylist

Peggy has over 23 years of experience cutting, coloring and styling hair. She has worked in Hawaii and on the mainland. She considers herself a very down-to-earth woman, enjoying salsa dancing, cooking, the outdoors and most of all, spending time with family and friends. She treats people how she wants to be treated and believes that what you give to the world is what comes back to you. Being present, loving, respectful, genuine and kind to others gives her the most pleasure and joy. This is one of the reasons she became a hair stylist – to spread happiness.

 

Peggy believes education is the most powerful way to service her clients. The hair industry changes so much every year and staying current through education and training, is one of her top priorities. In the last 23 years, Peggy has attended advanced training at least twice a year at the best hair academies. These classes often require her to take time away from family and servicing her clients, but she is extremely passionate about learning new techniques, methods and products that can be brought back to the salon. Some of the classes she has attended are:

  • Vidal Sassoon (Precise Haircutting and Color)

  • Toni and Guy (Hair Cutting and Color)

  • Wella Studio

  • Goldwell (Hair Color)

  • Fremesi (Hair Color)

  • Great Lengths Hair Extensions

  • L’Oréal NY

  • Aveda

  • Evolve Volumizer and Hair Extensions
