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!
My name is Briannah and I’ve been living in the Tampa Bay area for the past four years. I love working in the beauty industry and have been since I moved to Florida. I’m passionate about building relationships with people and making them feel comfortable. I love everything AVEDA stands for from natural products to their mission of giving back to society. The Nutriplenish line is one of my favorites because it leaves my hair extremely hydrated. Being mostly blonde, the Damage Remedy line is another favorite of mine for its repairing and protection properties!
My name is Jenny and I relocated to Tampa in 2009 from northern Virginia. I have been in the beauty industry since 2015 and have a passion for skincare. I received my skin/facial specialist license in 2019 from the Beauty and Health Institute here in Westchase. I love that AVEDA offers naturally derived products not just for hair but also our skin, body and well being. I look forward to ensuring each guest at Touch has an exceptional experience!
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.
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. I currently split my time working between the two and thoroughly enjoy both!
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.
I grew up in the Tampa area and have loved Aveda’s products and message for as long as I can remember. I love that all of Aveda’s products are naturally derived and their mission of environmental care.
My favorite things to do as a stylist are experimenting with fun colors and educating my guests on curly hair care. My absolute favorite products are the Nutriplenish Leave-In Conditioner for providing hydration for my curls and Texture Tonic for BIG volume! I am passionate about making my guests feel beautiful and proud of their hair.
