Steve Vail

Inspired by the sculpture masterpieces of Henry Moore, Stephen has always had an intense passion for hair texture and shape. He is extremely fond of shorter designs, which he says are able to hold their shapes well and beautifully emphasize the eyes, facial structure and delicacy of a neckline. Stephen strives to achieve versatility, ease of styling, and soft natural healthy hair with each client, which complements their personality and God-given beauty.

Congratulations to Stephen for winning the contest: Cell Phone Shoot-Out 2 sponsored by Sassoon Academy and voted on by his hairdresser peers.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding in all your ways, acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. – Solomon Proverbs 3.5-6
