Linda’s passion for hair began at a young age, first with re-styling the hair of Barbie Dolls, then transforming the looks of her teenage friends. After high school, Linda entered Harrisburg School of Beauty, embarking on a career in Cosmetology.
After graduation, she operated three successful salons in Pennsylvania, growing her skills by attending workshops and hair shows, and learning the latest trends in cutting, coloring, highlighting and perming. After a move to Ohio, and taking a position as Managing Stylist, Linda continued to advance her knowledge of new trends in color placement (Balayage and Ombre) and provided training in color correction and alternative cutting techniques to younger stylists. A move again brought her to Ocala and to Cutting Edge Hair Studio.
After 41 years in the beauty industry, her passion is just as strong. Linda still loves to transform others, enhancing and accentuating the natural beauty that lies within us all. Although fine hair and color (especially blonde and blonde tones) are specialties of hers, Linda loves working with all hair types, as well as color placement, perming and facial waxing.
