Amanda is a holistic stylist, specializing in curly hair & vibrant color palettes. Amanda graduated from Paul Mitchell The School of North Haven in 2009 and has spent the better part of the past decade building a foundation in New Haven & making a name for herself throughout the region. Amanda views her craft as a hairstylist as a type of healing art form – a perspective which, in 2017, lead her to found The Chrysalis, a private salon for holistic beauty and personal transformation (located in New Haven). Amanda’s style, which has been coined “sophisticated” & ”soulful” by some of her clients, is informed by her deep appreciation for art of all forms, passion for consistently enhancing her technique through continuing education, and rich tapestry of experiences from her travels on the music festival circuit. Her signature crafted-color, coils & coifs have graced crowns of musicians, artists and executives alike, from Maine to Colorado, even all the way to Costa Rica! After years of styling clients in the NYC area, Amanda is excited to have found a consistent home salon here in Brooklyn – catch her art in action here at Etta every other weekend!
