Bio: I am the founder, mentor and owner of Claude Thomas Salon and Spa. My salon was established in 1994. My background covers a wide range of experience and education for over 30 years. I have been a platform artist for Redken and Wella. I have been involved with photos shots for a vast array of magazines and the beauty industry magazines. I have been an educator in all aspects of the beauty industry. I am ranked within the beauty industry to be one of the top stylists, even though I have not been on one of those REALITY SHOWS. I got involved with hair extensions and hair replacement over 20 years ago. I am considered one of the top experts in this field for the nation. I am also certified in Permanent Makeup for over 8 years now. One of my primary goals is to educate my staff to be the best in industry, from cuttist, colorist,and extensionist. I do this by educating my staff with my expertise and creating their curriculum of education. This way I can assure my salon guests that they will receive the best our industry has to offer.
