11 years ago, Tierney’s best friend suggested she leave her job she was bored at and pursued her passion of coloring and cutting hair. She’s a native Texan, born in Denton and has now been in Austin for eight years and is still in love with the city. She studied at the Toni&Guy academy in Dallas, Texas and apprenticed/worked for the company for seven years. During her years at Toni&Guy she took several cut and styling classes to further her craft.
After being in Denton, Tierney wanted a change and moved to Austin, Texas. Here she started learning more about color and Men’s styling, taking classes whenever she could. She’s always kept up with any new color technique and always wanting to learn more. Tierney has also worked with several different color and product lines since being in Austin, but specializes in Wella and Joico color intensity for color and Kevin Murphy for products.
Now that she has started working for herself she was just able to do hair for a film that shot her in Austin, done several photo shoots, and has been invited to do hair for events for high end liquor companies. She’s hoping to have more opportunities like this in the future, but truly loves to be in the salon having one on one time with her clients.
Tierney spends her free time knitting, listening to true crime podcasts, making cocktails or drinking wine, playing music, or just hanging with friends. She loves to travel and trying new craft beers. Oh, and enjoys the occasional karaoke night.
