Learning Leader – Color Specialist, Overland Park
Linda graduated from Cutting Edge Hairstyling Academy in 2007 and received her apparel and textile’s degree in 2009.
This started her career in high end fashion and hairstyling.
Linda started out working in a small mom and pop salon north of the river, building up her talents and clientele. Â In 2012, she made her home in Overland Park, KS at a trendy boutique salon called Pinkie Couture. Â With their involvement in local fashion shows and private events, she was discovered by Mitsu Sato.
Mitsu asked her to come and be a learning adviser at his academy and demonstrate a creative color lesson. Â Linda was later presented with the wonderfulÂ opportunityÂ to become a part of the staff and begin her learning leader training with an emphasis in advance color.
MSHA has sent Linda for continuing education at the Vidal Sassoon Academy in Santa Monica, CA for their intensive ABC Nuts and Bolts color. Â This helps ensure her education as well as the future professionals staying up to date with the trends of cutting edge color.
Some of her every day inspirations come from her love for the comic book, video-gaming, and anime culture. Â She enjoys travelling and occasionally designing costumes or a high end fashion collection, which go hand in hand with her hairÂ background.
Her ultimate goal is to become a platform stylist or a creative director while still being in touch behind the chair and teaching future professionals at Mitsu Sato Hair Academy.
She is a firm believer in instilling in our students that education, dedication and passion are the keys to success!
