About Me

Sonja stepped foot in the hair industry over 25 years ago and has never looked back. She's a national color tech, certified by the American Institute of Haircolor. She takes pride in education and mentoring other hairstylists in haircolor. Sonja's training and technical skills come from some of the top leaders in the industry; Vidal Sasson-Santa Monica and Jingles International -NYC. Sonja strongly believes in preserving the integrity of the hair, and has a clear understanding of hair and how haircolor affects the hair structure. She educates so all hairstylists have the freedom to create. Sonja is a salon owner in Delray beach Florida.
