Hello! My name is Amberly Colina and I am a Hair Designer in Savannah, Georgia. Although I graduated from The Process Institute of Cosmetology in 2011 (now known as Keune Academy) my hair career started way before then. I played with hair constantly as a child- combs, clips and braids at the beginning. Even using my own grandfather as my guinea pig.
Then as a teenager I started to experiment with my own hair color, and then moved on to others who were willing participants. I was 22 before I decided to go to school, but I self taught myself how to cut women's hair, touch up roots, and even foil highlights before ever stepping into school. (One could say I had a salon set up in my kitchen...) I got my Georgia Hair Design license in early 2012. One of my proudest moments.
Before I moved to Savannah I spent 3 wonderful years at American Salon & Spa in Gainesville, Georgia. It was there that I fell in love with lived-in hair. Balayage & ombres became my passion. Although my salon felt like family, I moved to Savannah to follow my heart. Here I worked at JW Salon, and was provided some wonderful education to push my skills even further. I am grateful for every step of my career and what I have learned.
Along with many color classes taken at the Aveda Institute Atlanta, I also have certifications in:
