Owner, Master Colorist/Master Stylist
Lifestyle, Health & Leadership Coach


The Urban Salon Team was created in 2000 after Stacey spent seven years in the beauty industry and ten previous years in banking and insurance. Her vision was to develop a prestigious team of professionals who share her passion for advanced education and excellent customer care. Her 20+ years’ experience includes training and traveling nationally and internationally with Goldwell Hair Color from Toronto to Cancun, Las Vegas to Paris. She has trained with numerous accredited educators such as John Simpson, Goldwell Lead Artistic Director, Dimitrios Tsioumas, Goldwell International Artistic Director and 2X NAHA Winner, Tammy Savic and Robin Sween, Goldwell Artistic and Inspiration Team, Oscar Bond, 2010 NAHA winner and Nick Arrojo, the stylist from the famous “What not to wear” TV show to name a few. In 2010 she entered Goldwell’s Colorzoom and was awarded Third Place in New England by ESP out of 700 global entries. In 2008 she was nominated by Essential Salon Products as Global Entrepreneur of the Year, a prestigious nomination accrediting the entrepreneurial skills for salon growth and vision. While the image of beauty is where Stacey began, her journey took her to value beauty beyond the image in the mirror for herself and the clients in her company.  “Beauty can not be seen if it is not felt”
