I am so proud to be the owner of Touch Aveda Salon & Spa! As a Lifestyle Aveda salon & spa, we carry the entire line of Aveda products, exclusively; this includes haircare, skincare, and Aveda hair color which is up to 97% naturally derived. I began my career with Aveda when I started the Skin Care Program at the Aveda Institute in St. Petersburg, FL; I implemented the skincare curriculum, where I taught for several years before becoming the Retail Manager for the Institute. As Retail Manager, I gained additional knowledge and expertise about Aveda Products for both hair and skin and ultimately decided I wanted to open my own Aveda Salon & Spa, if I could find the right location; I found what I was looking for in Westchase and I feel blessed to have the opportunity to be a part of such a wonderful community. Today, I combine my experience with Aveda and my passion for the incredible products to bring the very best of Aveda to the Guests we serve. At Touch Aveda Salon & Spa, our guests are like family to us and the words in our mission statement express exactly how we feel toward them: “We Care, We Ask, We Listen…We Touch”. Please visit us soon and allow us to help you look and feel special!

I relocated to Florida from Madison, WI which is a trendy city comprised of hip college students and young professionals. Working for 30+ years as a stylist I have been privileged to have had the opportunity to train under the hair industry’s finest educators. I love customizing color, texturizing, men’s cuts and formal styles (including updos.) I love the Smooth Infusion Style Prep, which protects hair from humidity for up to 12 hours! I enjoy looking for opportunities for updating your look and incorporating the latest trends to suit your lifestyle.
I have spent time in Charlotte, Chicago and Tampa. My 30+ years of experience and education with Aveda have allowed me to share all that I have learned with my guests to offer them a very customized service. My favorite products range from the Be Curly line (“enhances my waves if I don’t want to go straight”), to the Smooth Infusion Style Prep (“helps keep my hair straight and protected from the humidity!”) I truly enjoy the opportunity to pamper my guests with the complimentary Aveda rituals we incorporate into every appointment.
I moved to Florida from my home state of Oregon fifteen years ago. In addition to being a stylist, I became a cosmetology instructor five years ago. That experience was priceless, as it allowed me to refine and perfect my consultations through advanced training, and better my best through teaching students the importance of communication and technical detail that guests can see in their results.
I love building shapes and creating different shades. I also love working with different levels of blondes. I have naturally curly hair so I have first hand experience to teach my guests how to make your curls work for you as well as how to achieve a sleek, straight look using the right Aveda products and tools.
Aveda has been the foundation of my career and I look forward to sharing my knowledge of products and hair so every guest in my chair leaves feeling really good about themselves.
Hi, I am a Florida native and from a young age have always been passionate about hair. I graduated from the Aveda Institute Clearwater and started my career with Touch Aveda Salon.
Aveda products are an absolute must have for me. I appreciate the care that goes into every bottle of Aveda products. Plant based and responsibly sourced. People tested! Our color is 95% naturally derived. When I’m not at the salon I’m at the beach so one of my favorite Aveda products is the Botanical Repair Leave In Conditioner. It protects against heat damage up to 450° and hair from UV (drying effects of the sun). It smooths and conditions leaving my hair feeling smooth and luxuriously soft.
When a guest leaves my chair my goal is for them to feel confident and beautiful. I strive to make sure that I listen to my clients and take their perspective into consideration so their hairstyle and maintenance is a good fit for their lifestyle.
Hello, I just recently relocated to the Tampa Bay area in 2020. from a small town in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I know I wanted to be in the beauty industry ever since I started doing my friend’s hair in middle school.
Since I began my hair journey, I have learned that I love working with blondes and creating dimensional looks. Being a blonde myself, a staple product for me is the Nutriplenish Leave-in Conditioner. It adds hydration and protects my hair against heat for up to 72 hours. I also really like the Smooth Infusion Style Prep Smoother, a leave in serum that primes, detangles and defends against frizz…a FLORIDA MUST HAVE! I love that AVEDA products are naturally derived and cruelty free. AVEDA products have given me the confidence that I needed in myself and my hair, which is my ultimate passion and goal as a stylist; I hope that every guest who sits in my char can leave feeling better about themselves than when they came in.
My name is Lisa and I was born and raised in Dunedin, Florida. I have two children who I was blessed to be able to stay at home and raise. Now that my kids are older, I knew it was my time to pursue my dream. I graduated from the Aveda Institute in Clearwater and received my cosmetology license last year.
I am honored to be a part of such an incredibly talented team of artists at Touch Aveda Salon & Spa. Our team shares the same passion as I do, to make each guest feel refreshed, rejuvenated and relaxed. I am proud to be an ambassador of Aveda products which are now 100% vegan. One of my favorite products is the Invati line, especially the Invati Advanced Thickening Foam. After having my kids, my hair became very fine and thin. I’ve never had a product produce such great results as the Invati line has for me.
I am passionate about what I do and take pride in giving each guest that sits in my chair the best experience, tailored specially for them.

Hi, my name is Cindy. I am an Aveda Trained Dual License therapist. I have worked in the spa industry for 10+ years. My specialty is Bamboo Fusion Massage and Facials, using heated bamboo. I incorporate stretches into my massage if needed. As a therapist, I listen carefully to your needs. I love the Aveda rituals, starting with the foot soak which starts the relaxation process. I have been working at Touch for 8+ years, only taking a pause during our COVID 19 shut down. I am so excited for the reopening of our spa, to see the smiling faces of our guests again, and to welcome all of our new guests to our spa!
