Inspired by the Golden Age of Hollywood, Sophia collaborates with every client to create a personal look that radiates confidence and self-defined glamour. She has been working as a Make-up Artist and Hairstylist for the past 10 years after graduating from MUD: Make-Up Designory in Los Angeles and the
San Francisco Institute of Esthetics and Cosmetology. Sophia also studied classic hair coloring techniques during a year long apprenticeship with senior stylist Christina Pyatt, a 20 year Goldwell color specialist. Sophia continues to fuel her creative vision with the latest techniques by attending advanced training seminars in Europe and the US. She recently received the Advanced Cutting certification from the Toni & Guy Academy in London.
Sophia’s styling philosophy is focused on bringing out the soulful fearlessness within each of her clients. She is dedicated to supporting the individuality of everyone in her chair and their desire to show more of themselves to the world. San Francisco has proven to be a supportive city for these ideals and allows Sophia to weave a sense of timeless elegance with cutting edge work. Whether it’s unleashing natural curls, adding rainbow highlights, or creating unique gender-neutral styles, Sophia’s work is infused with passion.
Sophia practices an egalitarian approach with all her clients. Her work encompasses a true diversity from working with brides and grooms of all varieties to contributing stylistic support for transgender clients during transitions. Sophia also works with male clientele and believes men’s haircuts require as much thought and skill as other styles. Her other areas of expertise include extensive experience with bridal parties and hair and make-up for film and photos.
Sophia works with Goldwell Color, Alfaparf Color, Oribe, R&Co, Ouidad , Hotheads Extensions, and Olaplex
