Chet and Amber started Salon27 in 2015 in hopes of creating a salon space of exceptional education and impeccable hair. There was one more component that they insisted on, supporting the stylist. It was in the DNA of Salon27 right from the start to make a positive space to help stylists reach their goals and full potential in a thriving culture that benefits the team and the guest. Today with so many amazing stylists working together to provide artistry and craft our salon has grown to new heights and we are always focused on the future, together.
Amber had been working on her hairdressing craft for over a decade before opening Salon 27 with her husband Chet. Beginning her career in Tampa, mentoring under a celebrity stylist and former Bumble and Bumble educator, she was introduced to the ‘artistic’ approach of hairdressing. During this time she began to develop her eye for detail all while keeping the hair “loose and free”, working on proficiency of the razor cut and the model perfect blow dry. After returning to her native Arizona Amber set her sights on working with the prestigious Vidal Sassoon Salon. Her time with the company further developed her eye for detail, design, and balance. “Being submerged in the culture of geometric shape and precision cutting technique was life-changing for my career.” Now with the creation of Salon 27 Amber brings both her Bumble and Sassoon training together and is creating something special for every client she works with. She continues to be the student learning new techniques to inspire and educate her team of stylists. Amber has traveled all over the US including LA, San Diego, Tampa, Miami, and New York to work her magic and share her passion for the art of hairdressing.
Kara knew what she wanted to do with her career from a very early age. Her grandmother was one of the first licensed cosmetologists in Arizona, and she always knew she would follow in her footsteps. Wasting no time, Kara rocket launched her career beginning her technical training in high school. Now with over 13 years in the industry, she is still deeply passionate about education. Kara has been certified in master training courses from many color lines including Wella, as well as hair straighten systems, and is highly trained on haircare products including R+Co. Her biggest joy comes from the artistic opportunity in creative color services and formal hairstyling for special events and weddings.
Hailey started her career journey in 2015, graduating from Paul Mitchell the School Columbia, in SC. If she’s learned anything from her many (many) rewatches of the musical Hairspray, it’s that “big, blonde, and beautiful” will never go out of style. That’s why she has spent the past 5 years perfecting her balayage, blonde-ing, and color-correcting skills. Hailey is a seasoned stylist, having left her mark in places like Brooklyn, NY and Columbia, SC. She is a master of the curtain bang, long layer, and “oh I barely even tried” curls. Whether you need a full hair rescue or just a blowout, Hailey is the stylist for you.
