RENE SHORT
RENE SHORTDesigner - Level 1
Rene is passionate about the beauty industry and strives to attain constant education and growth.
Rene comments:
I have been in the hair design for 10 years now and it has been an amazing learning as well as rewarding experience.
I have learned that the old adage “look good, feel good!” is essentially true and that for me, nothing makes my day like having a guest leave the salon excited with their transformation.
I am always striving for that client “WOW”, so I am always listening and paying close attention to details. The result is for you to walk out with the hair design, color and total image best suited for your lifestyle or event. I will choose the best products for your hair and show you the right techniques to maintain your style.
I truly enjoy the challenge of hair color, with a slight bias to blondes! I love the color palette we use by Davines and will work with you for the most complimentary color. Being an educator for Davines, a sustainable company out of Italy, I actively participate in their green vision for the hair products industry which serves to maintain and protect our environment. Our commitment, here at Navii, to your well being is always a priority and a personal pledge.
