Victoria

Owner,Master Stylist and Colorist.

If you came and sat on my chair, I’d know what color you need be before you even speak. Color is just in my nature. It’s like painting, just as cutting hair is like sculpting.

 

And those are all skills I’ve developed throughout my career.  I’ve owned two Washington-DC-based salons, including Oxygen in historic Georgetown and more recently Pure Aveda in the heart of Dupont Circle. I have also styled hair for major events such as New York Fashion Week and Swimsuit Fashion Week in South Beach. And given my proximity to the center of political power, I’m a favorite stylist for trendsetters such as cosmetics guru Bobbi Brown, Forbes magazine’s “America’s 100 Most Innovative Women Leaders” Jenny Town with 38 North, former Washington Capital Chris Simon and news correspondents such as Politico’s Meredith McGraw, CNN’s Arlette Saenz, and Dateline’s Stephanie Ramos. 

 

I actually began my career as a painter and sculptor in the 1990s after obtaining a bachelor’s degree at the Corcoran School of the Arts in Washington, DC. After several years selling my collections, I found myself drawn to the concept of hair design.  

 

In 2000, I obtained my cosmetology license from Graham Webb International, considered at the time to be the nation’s premiere hair school, and then, less than a year later, I earned a certificate in blonde hair coloring from the prestigious London England Professional Aveda Institute.

 

This experience is also enhanced by ease in connecting with people. As soon as they come and sit in my chair, they feel like I’m their confident, and indeed I am, for my regular clients have all become my friends.
