Meet Lina

Lina Vasquez Salon Owner and Master Stylist

Hey There!

I'm Lina, and I am a master colorist, extension artist and hair stylist based in Reading, MA. I strive to empower women to express their inner beauty through their hair. My goal is to create a warm and welcoming environment where you feel cared for, pampered and listened to. 

 

I was born in Bogota, Colombia, where I grew up and got a degree in Psychology and Fine Arts. I landed in Washington D.C. in 2000, where I began an exciting new adventure in the beauty industry. I started working for Aveda Beauty Salons in Northern Virginia. After seven years I moved to Boston, where I call home.

 

I have a confession, I absolutely love my job. It can be addicting to make people feel beautiful! I believe that your hair should not only reflect your personality, but your lifestyle as well. I absolutely love to learn new techniques and trends to help you to achieve the look of your dreams. My guests love to hear about my educational adventures!  Always with a warm and caring spirit, I thoughtfully listen to each of my guests who sits in my chair, and then beautifully bring their vision to life. 

 

When I'm not working, you 'll find me spending time on personal projects like house transformations, crafts, knitting, or trying new recipes in the kitchen. I also love to be outdoors, nothing better than a nice hike or long bike ride to enjoy nature! I am also the mom of two amazing boys and engaged to the most amazing man. I count my blessings each morning, and I'm so grateful to have found a career that allows me to live a life full of fun and creativity. 

 

See you soon!

Meet Terry

Hi I’m Terry. I became a mom at 24 and I wanted to build a career around my new family. I was raised in Melrose where I still live with my son and my dog Dakota. I spend as much time as I can, hiking, camping, or just being outside!!!


I love doing hair and nails. Imagine getting up and going to a job you love every day. I do that!!!! I get to meet incredible new people, and listen to some incredible stories.


Making people feel confident in themselves is what I enjoy doing most. I believe that having an emotional connection with a client helps to bring out that creative side of me, to create that custom service for everyone that sits in my chair.


Two things I find extremely important in this business is education, and helping others succeed. “We Rise By Lifting Others” (author unknown)

See you soon!!!
