Inside the salon
I love adventurous color and the joy of transforming my clients even if it’s just a simple bang trim. I am a voracious learner and am constantly going to classes to expand my skill set.
Outside the salon
Singing and songwriting! I am the lead singer of local Portland band GinLab. Biking and walking around Portland. Playing with my furbaby (cat) Stampy. Cooking, but mostly eating.
Originally trained as a classical singer, with a bachelor’s in voice performance from McGill University, Claire found her favorite element of performing was the transformative power of hair and makeup. She had always enjoyed experimenting with her own hair, as well as styling friends and family. After an epiphany that she could turn that hobby into a career, she enrolled in cosmetology at Empire Beauty School in Portland. She graduated in January 2014 and is now working as a level three stylist.
