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 am so grateful to work with such an amazing, ambitious and talented team that cares about each other and each one of our guests! Born and raised in Boston, MA (Go Red Sox & Patriots), I relocated to Tampa when I was 14 years old because my parents were tired of shoveling the snow! Even though I miss the four seasons I do love soaking up the Florida sunshine in the winter when family is four feet under in snow. I have been in the beauty industry ever since I was a small child. My grandmother was a hairstylist and my mother owned three hair salons. I became licensed in nails and massage and have been working in salon management for the past eight years. Aveda, to me, is not just a brand but an experience and Touch Aveda is not just a salon but a network of truly amazing people working together with one goal in mind…to create a salon for our guests to call their home and leave feeling beautiful and confident! “Beauty is not in the face; Beauty is a light in the heart.”
I was born and raised in Dunedin, FL. I graduated from USF with a BA in education. I have four beautiful and very active children and a chubby yellow lab. At this moment, my favorite products are anything Shampure. Great smell! My other favorite product is Air Control. It smells great too!
Born and raised in Dunedin, Florida. I enjoy making connections with our guests and seeing them leave happy with the high quality services Touch Aveda has to offer. As a native Floridian, you can always find me at the beach soaking up the sun or in the pool relaxing. The Sun Care Hair & Body Cleanser is my absolute favorite, as it removes all the chlorine and salt leaving your hair feeling and looking fabulous!
My name is Brittany and I’m a Florida native. I have been in the beauty industry for over three years. I love helping others feel and look great. I love working at Aveda for many reasons. I love our commitment to our customers and love the great quality of our products. Some of my favorite products are the Be Curly line and the Damage Remedy line.
I relocated to Florida from Madison, WI which is a trendy city comprised of hip college students and young professionals. Working for 19+ 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 24+ 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.
Bio coming soon.
Born and raised in Tampa FL. My background has always been Aveda, starting with the Aveda Institute and now I am very grateful to be working at Touch Aveda. My favorite products are Volumizing Tonic & Phomollient, both adding shine and weightless body to your hair. I love the one-on-one time I get with each guest to discover their needs and enjoy building a relationship with them.
I relocated from Richmond, Virginia and bring over 10 years experience as a hairstylist with me. I specialize in blonde hair color, balayage and dimensional coloring. I love doing men’s and women’s haircuts and styling. I can’t live without the Aveda Smooth Infusion line and Shampure as well. I can’t wait to work with you to create your next look soon!
I am a 4th generation Tampa Native! I started working at Touch Aveda back in 2009. I appreciate Aveda’s ability and dedication to making products that are not only sustainable and naturally-derived but that also really work! I love our makeup, skincare and hair care products! For the makeup, the Aveda Tinted Moisturizer and the Aveda Pressed Powder are my go-to and I could not live without them both! They provide a flawless finish. The Control Force Hairspray and the Pure Abundance Hair Potion are my two favorites from our hair care line. I enjoy meeting and talking to new people! I also enjoy the beauty of the industry and the art of this craft. Being able to combine these two things and do them in such a fun environment is awesome to me!
I was born and raised in Hopkins, Minnesota. I love the beauty industry and connecting with guests. My favorite product is Aveda’s Dry Remedy Oil. I love transforming guests and working hard to give them the look they want and love!
My name is Gina and I grew up in Houston, Texas but I’ve lived in the Tampa Bay area for the past twenty years. I absolutely love the creativity of Aveda’s color and all the amazing products. My personal favorite is the Brilliant Emollient Serum. It’s great for softening and shinning up curls and haircuts on those extra humid days. I really enjoy color and cutting all types of hair but I would say curls are my favorite. I also enjoy teaching my guests how to work with their hair so they can look like they just left the salon each and every day!
I’m a Florida native and second generation stylist who was born with a passion for hair in her blood. My mom has been a cosmetologist for 34 years and growing up watching her dedication to clients helped instill the same dedication in myself. From your own personalized Aveda color to the flirtiest blowouts, I’ll always give my best efforts to make sure you leave looking and feeling fantastic! Add some Aveda Control Force Hairspray for 24hr humidity protection and you’ll be ready for anything!
I was born and raised in Valparaiso, Indiana. I never really knew if the hair world was for me until I moved to Tampa in 2016. I went to the Aveda Institute in Clearwater, Florida and have been in love with hair ever since. My favorite services to do are highlights and fashion colors. I wanted to be the person to make someone feel beautiful about themselves every time they come to see me and now I am becoming that person everyday. If I had to pick a favorite product it would be Phomollient. I love the aroma and the lightness of the foam. Another benefit is that all hair types can use Phomollient.
I am from Colorado/Clearwater. Moving from the mountains to the oceans was a great reason to buy a whole new wardrobe! Aveda products are all natural which is really important to me as a therapist. I love the fact that they are committed to the environment. One small step for mankind! I love what I do and I enjoy helping make people feel better. Touch Aveda Spa is about a whole mind, body and soul experience.
I have been a skincare specialist since graduating from the Aveda institute in 2008. Now working as a member of the Touch Aveda team, I like to use my knowledge of our products and treatments to create a totally customized experience for you. Each and every time. It brings me great satisfaction helping my clients achieve their skincare goals. Im committed to providing visible results all while making your time in the spa a tranquil, rejuvenating experience. I have 2 children with my wonderful husband and we enjoy an active and healthy lifestyle. We love to travel and have visited several European cities in recent years. I enjoy new cultural experiences, history and I have a huge passion and large amount of empathy towards animals.
Recently moved to Tampa from Austin, TX. I am currently a student at the Aveda Institute in Clearwater. I’ve always had a passion for beauty and hair and it is my goal to be able to help make people feel beautiful on a daily basis.
