Linda Hood               

Voted one of Ashland's Favorite Hairstylist for 4 years!

Like so many other people that I know the lure of Ashland and living in Southern Oregon was too great, and in January of 1999 my husband and I relocated from Portland. We love the slower pace and bluer skies that this area offers to all who live here, and cherish all of the friendships that we have made. Our lives have been enriched by the personal relationships and connections that we have made and we feel blessed to call Ashland our home.

 I was born and raised in Portland, and left for 2 years to explore the U.S.A. This not only allowed me to see and experience our country but it gave me a new appreciation for living in Oregon as we really do live in a beautiful state.
I did my initial training in Portland, completing both cosmetology school as well as barber school and apprenticed to be a master barber. I worked in several salons in the Portland area, and have taken advanced training courses from Toni & Guy, Sassoon, Yosh, Aveda, Schwarzkopf, Matrix, Goldwell, Redken, Label M and Lanza.

 I opened and operated two salons in the Portland area, worked on stage and television sets and teamed up with two photo studios doing makeovers for glamour photo shots. For several years I was an educator for Nicole and participated in workshops held in the top salons in downtown Portland.

 I believe in having fun in what I do. If I had to choose, doing hair color is my favorite service, but I really enjoy making so many people happy with a great new haircut or a consistent look that suits them.

 Since moving to Ashland my husband and I have learned to balance work with play. We have a small motorhome and a large dog and both are ready to hit the road when we have time off together. Life is good when you explore your options!
