Linda Licocci has developed a personalized approach to hair design that comes from her ability to truly focus on every individual that she meets. Linda pays attention to who you are, how your life works, and how you live day to day. She develops a style that works to express the image that you want to project. This kind of individual attention takes time, and Linda's professional philosophy reflects her desire to achieve your goals.
Specializing in her signature dimensional highlighting methods, Linda blends beautiful hair color with precise and cutting-edge haircuts. Her corrective color technique targets damaged or stressed hair. She brings her creativity and insight to design just the right hair color and style that is uniquely yours.
Linda understands that style is something that develops around the world and applies an international perspective in sharpening her creative vision. She has lived in Hong Kong and London, and trained with top international styling talent at Tony & Guy, Jingles of London, and Revere Academy in Hong Kong. Linda also established and toured with the Ling International Artistic Team as an educator for beauty supply manufacturers.
Absorbing the techniques and vision of these world renowned artistic hair dressing communities, Linda brings an international depth to her own approach to give you a look that reaches beyond fleeting trends and create a lasting individual style.
