Angie Smith - Stylist Level 2
My passion has always been to do hair! I grew up in the salons with my mother, then got married at a young age and had two beautiful children. As they got to high school and college level, I then decided to pursue my dream as a hair stylist. Being at a Redken Elite salon like Biyoshi has given me the opportunity to have the best education to further my career. I attended my first Redken Symposium in Las Vegas in January 2013, which was a global function with hairstylists and educators from around the world, and I recently became a Mirabella Bride Certified Makeup Artist. I look forward to continuing my education and furthering my career with my team at Salon Biyoshi!
What are you currently working on?

How do you spend your free time?
I spend my free time working out at the fitness center and spending time with my family and friends.
“Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect. It means that you’ve decided to see beyond the imperfections.”
When did you know you wanted to be in the beauty industry?
I knew I wanted to do hair when I was a young teenager helping my mother out in the salon...the excitement and atmosphere of being around clients as they leave knowing they received the service they wanted was a rewarding experience.
What inspires you?
Being open to use my creativity with my vision and seeing the end result of the finished product, and knowing my guest leaves happy.
What advice would you give someone who wants to color their hair for the first time?
Start very minimal because less is adequate, then as you become more comfortable, I can always add more color the next visit.
How do you approach a haircut?
I approach a hair cut by first consulting with my guest and finding out completely what they want and the end result they are looking for.
What celebrities always have great hair?
Catherine Zeta Jones and Halle Berry
How do you customize hair color for each guest?
Looking at their natural level first, skin tone, and the color of their eyes and then create what I feel will enhance their look.
What is your personal style?
My personal style is high energy, outgoing, social, patient, and keeping a positive attitude! Having a strong faith and believing reflects who I am.
