Carole  Protat, Senior Director Education said, “We’re delighted to welcome another powerful and dynamic female artist and industry leader to our impressive roster of brand ambassadors. Amy is a perfect fit for our Wella family, she brings a combination of industry experience, fresh perspective, and love for education to our team. We look forward to collaborating with Amy and continuing to elevate the craft together!” 

Amy loves the freeform nature that color, especially balayage, affords her. After many years in the industry, it was this technique that really reignited her passion for hair. As a balayage specialist, Amy naturally gravitates towards Wella Professionals Blonder and Freelights to achieve the dimensional results she’s looking for. “The consistency of both lighteners makes my application effortless on my clients,” adds Amy.  

In addition to hair, she attributes much of her success in her career and in education to her utilization of social media. She began posting on the platforms she used most for education and inspiration — YouTube and Instagram. She shared her experience of the do’s and don’ts of balayage socially and has been growing her 319K, and counting, followers.
