For the Month of September we are featuring Lyndsey Cosgrove, one of Verde's newest talents. We are excited to share some of the things that make Lyndsey a fabulous stylist, and a fun team member!
Lyndsey basically entered this world wanting to style hair. Every doll she had as a child got cuts, curls, or braids. She also insisted her mom patiently put her hair in sponge rollers at night so she could wake up with the Shirley Temple curls of her dreams. As Lyndsey grew older, her passion for hair grew stronger. Her clients evolved from dolls to friends and family. Completing cosmetology school and passing the state board test in 2012 was the obvious next step! "Working in this industry I feel grateful that I go to work excited for the day and go home feeling happy and fulfilled" said Lyndsey about working as a stylist.
As a stylist Lyndsey has amazing instinct. She has a talent for knowing not only what will look great on someone, but the best way to achieve each guests hair dreams. Lyndsey loves precision bobs, being trained at Vidal Sassoon in NYC, and beautiful dimensional colors, using various hand painting and foiling techniques. Her clients are loyal not only because of their beautiful cuts and colors, but for the fun and relaxed experience Lyndsey provides. Check out some of her favorite work!
In Lyndsey's own words:Q & A
1) Q. What is your favorite trend in 2016?
A. Some of my favorite trends right now are anything 90's inspired. I love the modern twist on the clothes and hairstyles that were popular then. I also love that balayage seems here to stay for a while. I love playing with all the different variations of the technique.
2) Q. What would be your dream vacation?
A. I would love to go to Thailand! I have never been to that side of the world and I would love to explore the history and the beautiful tropical areas.
3) Q. If you could only give one haircut the rest of your life, what would it be? A. If I had to do one haircut for the rest of my career it would be a bob. There are so many different twists you can create with the classic style!
Lyndsey had been hoping to make a switch to the Verde team since she heard about the eco-friendly color line and products, and unique and relaxed work environment. She said "I felt that the change would make a huge difference in my professional and personal life. And it has!" Moving forward in her career at Verde she hopes to become successful enough to buy a farm to fill with all her favorite animals!
We are so happy to have Lyndsey on the team and look forward to growing and learning together!
