Hi! I'm Amelia, but my friends and guests know me best as Violet. A nickname I picked up in beauty school and speaks directly to my love of everything colorful and bright. I'm an Expert Colorist working at Santo Tomas Collective in Old Town San Diego. My passion and speciality is creating uniquely tailored and adventurous colors for each and every guest who sits in my chair. Whether that be bright tones that would make Lisa Frank green with envy, or soft blended shades to perfectly accent a face shape, each and every color is uniquely tailored to each guest's personality.
I've started in the professional beauty industry in 2007 after running a makeshift salon out of my mother's kitchen in high school. Through the years I've found a passion for not only educating my guests in the salon, but also fellow hairstylist. I'm thrilled to be a part of the Riot Squad and represent Pulp Riot Hair by bringing top notch education to our stylists in house as well as stylists throughout San Diego.
I'm a firm believer that when you look good, you feel good. And when you feel good, anything is possible. Each day getting to help unlock a guest's true self, or even just add a little sparkle to their day is a gift.
