Doreen (Owner & Stylist)

I have had an amazing journey in the hair industry! After high school, I attended Arlington Academy and found my true passion in hair. I joined the Hair Directors team in 1991 and became a co-owner in 1994 - I am so proud of this achievement!

I absolutely love what I do, and making our guests feel their best always is my priority. I specialize in color, and I take pride in continuously improving my skills by attending many advanced color and cutting classes. Through my work, I have become certified in Brazilian Blowout, Pravana Chroma-Silk, and Pulp Riot Color.

It's truly wonderful to see how a change in appearance can positively impact how someone feels about themselves. That's why I love what I do - every day in different, and I get to see the amazing difference I can make in someone's life.

Jamie (Manager & Stylist)

License Date: January 2016

Started at Hair Directors Salon & Spa NW: May 2016

I've been licensed as a cosmetologist since 2016. Before joining the Hair Directors Salon/Spa team, I completed Redken's Summit Salon Program - this program helped me develop the skills I needed to be an expert in the industry.

As the salon manager and a stylist, I absolutely love what I do, and I'm constantly keeping up with new styles and trends. I take pride in staying educated for my own enjoyment as well as for the benefit of my clients. For me, being a cosmetologist isn't just a job- it's a passion that I'm lucky enough to get paid for!

I'm proud to say that I'm currently certified with HotHead Extensions, Pravana Chroma-silk Color and Balayage, pulp Riot Color, Brazilian Blowout and Blowout Express, DevaCurl, CaliCurl and Satin Smooth. This level of certification shows my dedication to the craft and how I'm always looking for ways to improve.

For me there's nothing like seeing a client leave the salon feeling confident and happy with their new look. It's that feeling that drives me to be the best stylist I can be. I believe that beauty and confidence go hand in hand, and I'm honored to have a role in helping others achieve both.

Thank you for your interest in my story - I hope to see you in the salon soon!

Pam (Stylist)

Pam Ullo Hair Design

I'm proud to say that I've been doing hair for over 50 years - and even after all this time, I love it just as much as I did on my first day of cosmetology school.

As a full-service stylist, I provide a wide range of services to my clients. From cuts and colors to perms and styles, I'm dedicated to providing top-quality service to each and every one of my clients.

One of the things that sets me apart from other stylists is my willingness to go the extra mile for my clients. If someone can't get to the salon, I'm happy to travel to their home to provide the services they need. It's all part of my commitment to providing the best possible service to my clients.

When it comes to my areas of expertise, I'm proud to say that I specialize in Brazilian Blowout. This is a service that I've honed my skills in over the years, and I'm confident in my ability to deliver the results my clients want.

For my color services and products, I primarily use Goldwell. This is a brand that I've found to be highly effective and reliable, and I stand behind it with confidence.

Looking to the future, I'm excited about the prospect of many more years of doing what I love. It's truly been a joy to work in this industry, and I'm grateful for the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of my clients every day.
