Edmonds’ newest Aveda salon, Chroma Salon and Spa, has introduced two newest stylists to the team: Amy Griffin and Jaime Barger.
Griffin, who joined the salon in April, has three years of experience in the hair industry, all with Aveda. She grew up in nearby Brier, where her parents still live. After graduating from Mountlake Terrace High School, she attended Western Washington University for a year before deciding to go after her dream of becoming a hairstylist.
While attending the Aveda Institute in Seattle, Griffin was given the opportunity to travel to New York and work behind the scenes with Aveda at New York’s fashion week. She calls this experience “life changing” and said it is what really turned her on to Aveda’s incredible styling products. While she loves styling and cuts, her favorite services are colors and highlighting/balayage.
Griffin now lives in Edmonds with her boyfriend, and says they enjoy all that Edmonds has to offer.
Barger has been a stylist with Aveda for eight years. She trained at the Aveda institute in downtown Seattle and has since spent most of her career in Aveda salons on the Eastside and most recently in Mill Creek. Her passion is hair color, but providing a complete service is extremely important to her. She believes strongly in a sharp finished look even if your evening ends with you at the grocery store. She continues her education by taking Aveda advanced training classes throughout the year.
Barger currently resides with her fiancé and two young boys (ages 10 and 3) and her favorite activities are anything family oriented. Her oldest is heavily involved in youth football and recently played during the half-time show at the Seahawks/Raiders game.
Chroma, which opened in Edmonds in January in the former Salon 512 location at 512 5th Ave. S., says they appreciate the warm welcome they have received from the Edmonds community. The salon has also announced the launch of their fall color collection, ” Sublime Spirit,” featuring intense reds and warm browns. Chroma invites you to come in and enjoy a signature salon service including Aveda’s ritual relaxing head massage with every haircut and a finishing style that will make you feel great.
