Born and raised in southern Maryland by way of central New Jersey, Cole relocated to the beautiful state of Maine in the summer of 2020. His journey in hair began in his early twenty’s as a receptionist and shampoo technician where his passion for hair and beauty was ignited. Cole graduated from the Graham Webb International Academy of Hair in Washington, D.C. With over 10 years of experience in the industry, Cole has attended several advanced education classes. He is Vidal Sassoon trained in precision cutting via Toronto and NYC. He is certified in multiple smoothing treatments, including Brazilian Blowout, Keratin Complex, and Milbon Liscio Smoothing (Japanese Straightening). He is Bellami Hair Extension Certified and has been professionally trained through Goldwell, Paul Mitchell, L’Oréal, and Redken color lines. While he considers himself a blonding expert, Cole caters to ALL hair types, textures and colors – from lived-in, beachy, low maintenance or bright, icy blondes, to dimensional brunettes, to natural, fiery, or bold redheads – and everything in between. He also enjoys delivering the perfect cut for all genders, from bobs to bald fades. “My goal is to provide a comfortable, inviting, and exceptional customer service experience from beginning to end. I want my guests to love their hair every time.” When Cole is not behind the chair, he enjoys hiking, hitting the beach, lifting weights, cooking, dining out, yoga, travel, and all things self-improvement.
