Get to know the Betty:
❤️ What did you want to be when you grew up?
Criminal Psychiatrist? Writer? Pilot? Makeup Artist? Lawyer? Actuarian? Real Housewife? I’ve had lots of ideas but never a set dream job. I just wanted to enjoy what I was doing while also being able to enjoy life. I’ve always loved the creative field because it lets me express myself while allowing myself to constantly grow and improve.
❤️ Where are you from?
Born and raised in Seattle, Washington.
❤️ What do you like to do?
I love to eat and find new food excursions wherever I am! I also have 6 dogs, so snuggles on the couch while watching horror movies or writing is also a fav pastime.
❤️ What are your strengths?
I love taking on big hair transformation projects and working with bleach! Those crisp white bleach & tones, bold fashion colors, and color corrections are my favorite because those before and after photos are precisely 🤌 what I love, which means giving people their fantasy hair dreams!
❤️ Any side hustles?
I’m also a freelance writer, editor, and makeup artist!
❤️ Any anything else fun you might think of that makes you unique. 😘
I attended beauty school as a part of my “gap year” after attending a year of college in Southern California. I graduated, got my California cosmetology license, moved to Texas, started at The University of Texas Austin within 4 weeks, and graduated from UT Austin in 2019 with a Rhetoric & Writing and Creative Writing Degree.
I also used to be a client at Urban Betty while I was in college, and my old stylist helped me get into the salon!
Wow! What a story. Thank you, Savannah, for inspiring everyone around you and being a powerful female role model. I am so proud to have you at our salon company. We need to watch some horror movies together!
