Growing up in Ohio, hair has always been a part of Samantha’s life since she can remember. She was the typical little girl always sneaking scissors to give her dolls new haircuts, having her friends over early in the morning to style their hair before school and spending hours practicing her sister’s updos for prom.
Her passion only grew as time went on and after completing her BBA in marketing, she decided to fulfill her dream and go to cosmetology school. After getting her license in 2009, she worked for two years as a stylist in a small salon in Ohio but always knew she wanted more. She went to San Francisco to visit a friend in 2011. The city inspired her so much that when she got back to Ohio, she packed up her things, booked a one way ticket to SFO and never looked back.
She joined diPietro Todd Salon & Academy where she completed extensive training and became a master precision cutting and styling specialist with a loyal clientele. She became very involved with the salon’s assistant training program becoming one of their lead educators. After 8 years in San Francisco, Samantha made the move to Texas with her fiancé to be closer to family and joined Ceron in the beginning of 2020.
Samantha takes extreme pride in her work and truly enjoys creating unique looks that are tailored to each client’s features and lifestyle. Her Ohio roots paired with her San Francisco edge has created her unique niche in Houston. She believes that people should never stop learning and makes a constant effort to further her education. She has completed advanced classes with some of the industry’s top product brands and educators, including Vidal Sassoon, Oribe, L’Oreal Professional, Tim Hartley and Richard Ashforth to name a few. Her warm personality with her acute attention to detail far exceeds her clientele’s expectations while keeping their cut and style modern and chic.
