Deklynd Channing

Hair Salon Owner / Hair Designer

Since 1990, I have been engaged in creating and enhancing beauty. I believe each client, each face, each personality has a unique beauty that is waiting to be revealed. My passion is to find and create the ideal look for each of my clients. Open communication is core in my approach. Asking the right questions and listening intently allows me to combine the wishes of my clients along with my own vision, continuously delighting my customers. My philosophy is that hair design is art and functionality. In combination, my clients can work their styles with ease and feel stunning each day.I was professionally trained at Vidal Sassoon in Chicago. After graduating, I developed my craft further at Pascal pour Elle. While in Chicago, my work with everyday clients and celebrities was highlighted on multiple daytime shows including Rachel Rae, Oprah Winfrey, and Jenny Jones.

In 1997, I brought my expertise to Austin further enhancing my skill set as a colorist. I went to work for Wella International as a Color Educator and spent five years teaching and sharing my knowledge with others in my field. In 2008, I was awarded Best Hair Colorist in Austin by Austin Monthly magazine. In the same year I was also awarded status as an A-list hairdresser in Austin by Tribeza magazine. My work is also featured frequently in Austin Woman, Texas Monthly, Tribeza, and Austin American-Statesman Glossy.

I consistently study trends, colors, designs, products and techniques in an effort to keep my clients feeling excited as well as comfortable with their experience.
