Valerie grew up riding horses, playing video games and listening to metal in the lovely town of Snohomish, WA. Her love of live music is like an ocean and you can often find her supporting the talent at our awesome local venues.
Valerie attended Gary Manuel Aveda Institute on Capitol Hill, and moved to the ‘Ham in 209, fresh out of school and ready to rock some hair! She loves what she does and is blown away by all the amazing people she has met in her chair. Cuts, colors and styles are her passion, and she gets super excited when someone comes in for a drastic change.
