meet Vanu!

specialties: transformational hair, curly hair, shags and mullets, custom blonding, vivids/fantasy colors

after working in detroit with all types of hair and styles for 6 years, I moved to Asheville in the fall of 2019. I love being close to amazing hiking, camping, and a vibrant city. I appreciate all hair, but love to work with color, long hair, and textured hair.

what makes your hair brain sing? connecting people to a deep expression of themselves. I love perfecting a natural look that grows out easily, or wild creative color and cuts… anything that leaves the client feeling incredible.

go-to davines product: that’s hard with such an amazing and vast line, but I would say my current favorites are melu hair shield for health and shine, and dry texturizer for the perfect lived in look.

what you love about ananda: the overall culture is great, a professional yet widely creative environment that supports stylists and clients in being their best selves.
