36 years in the industry; Ezell has worked with the giants in European hair such as Vidal Sassoon, Toni & Guy and The grandfather architect of all modern hair cutting "Roger Thompson."
Realizing that each haircut requires a genetic based recipe; rather then a tool and technique approach, Ezell set out to unlock the code of deep understanding. A singular roadmap in which to navigate the complexity of individual hair and arrive at a perfect shape every time.
Are you desiring effortless simplicity of functionality?
Tired of the same old fashion mistakes again and again?
The power of artistry is in the individual, not in the scissors, or technique.
Not everyone can be a Michael Angelo, Picasso, Baryshnikov, Michael Jordan or Michael Jackson.
An artist has a unique way in-which they perceive their worlds beauty
If you desire perfection in your hairs ability, and a one of a kind look that last long, then Ezell is the artist for you.
Say goodbye to dependency on product and tools.
Say goodbye in waiting for your hair to finally get to the right length and beauty.
Say goodbye to frequent visits costing you more money.
Its right the first time, everytime.
Hair performance is based upon the power and beauty already present, yet previously unrealized.
It is not the taking away of hair, but the utilizing of all the hair presently here.
Move beyond limited methods which impede perfect hair.
It is not the hair which needs to be discarded, but the systems and techniques.
No trends, no archaic molds, no doubt in craft. Hair artistry always one of a kind, which perfectly fits the hair to you, rather then you to the hairstyle.
There is only one you. Discover the real YOU now...
My name is Hannah Hoiby, and I just graduated from Evergreen Beauty and Barber College. I have always had a passion for the beauty industry, and have done hair for friends and family for years. I’ve done weddings, photo shoots, school dances and more. I love our industry so much because I love making meaningful connections with people and hearing their stories; as well as being a positive part in their life by making them feel beautiful. I moved to Bellingham almost 4 years ago. I love this community and look forward to growing my business and making the many faces of Bellingham look & feel beautiful, just as they should.
Joanne is a local mother born and raised in Bellingham. Straight out of high school she studied art at Whatcom Community College. She loved art of all kinds but as much as she enjoyed it she didn't see it being her career path. She tried a few different avenues before attending Bellingham Beauty School in 2005. After completing both the cosmetology and nail tech program she realized that nails was her true passion. Nails are now her canvas. She specializes in natural nails, gel polish and nail art. All her work is freehand without the use of stickers or stencils and she loves a good challenge. She offers manicures, pedicures, gel polish, gel overlays on natural nails and freehand nail art design.
