Moira Ziolkowski

I grew up in Connecticut then moved out to California for college at 18. I started a career in television production and seeing the behind the scenes culture of hair and makeup is what inspired me to pursue a career in the beauty industry. My initial training was at Paul Mitchell the School. The laid back beach lifestyle, outdoor activities, and endless things to do kept me in California for 15 years. Wanting a change brought me to the mountains of Asheville in 2016. If I’m not out hiking with my dog, I’m likely enjoying a craft beer at the local brewery or planning for travel.

What makes your hair brain sing? My favorite is dimensional balayage styled in loose beachy waves. Classic Vidal Sassoon bobs is where I learned the foundation of precision cutting.  Cutting in this style keeps my memory fresh for the importance of this knowledge.
