Brooke SMALL“I feel so blessed to have found a career that allows me to combine my passion for people, my passion for fashion and style, and my passion for hair design. I believe each person is beautiful in their own individual way and the amazing part of my job is being able to combine these passions  to create a customized design for each individual person.”

Originally a Minnesota girl, Brooke moved to Washington to study business at Pacific Lutheran University. She returned home to a regional position in fashion sales until she decided to follow her passion for hair design. Brooke began her career in cosmetology 10 years ago at the original  Aveda Institute of Minneapolis, followed by a position at Aveda Salon and went through the Aveda Exclusive Advanced Education program. She quickly gained a reputation for her custom color and dimensional blondes. She was awarded Best New Stylist her first year and was the key stylist for a number of Minneapolis area news broadcasters as well as Vikings and Timberwolves cheerleaders.

In 2010, Brooke moved back out west and took a position at a salon.  She participated in advanced training under the legendary stylist Graham Breakwell and became known as the salon’s premiere blonde specialist. With countless training classes in color, styling, advanced Vidal Sassoon precision cutting techniques and hair design under her belt, she enjoys all hair design from men’s cuts to updos and creative color design.
