With nearly 20 years of experience, Architexture Salon owner Tami credits her success in the beauty industry to quick learning and absorption of the latest techniques and styles. Her active listening skills and engagement, together with her clear communication with her clientele, renders precise implementation of their wishes in a timely manner that fits the active lifestyles of her clients.

Although personally humble about her work, Tami is known throughout the styling world for her gift with highlighting, balayage and babylights. Creating movement with razor cutting, she has an ability to sculpt existing body into the hair and accentuating texture with a combination of shear and razor cutting.

Since opening Architexture Salon in 2013 in Waldo, Tami has captured the neighborhood atmosphere for the business that is often recognized by new and seasoned clients who become a comfortable extension to her business family. She insists that the energy of Architexture Salon be positive, accepting and genuine.

Tami grows and refines her craft by following styling trends through printed and online media, and by continued education with L'Oreal and UNITE and their ever-improving product lines. Tami finds inspiration through travel and by surrounding herself with like-minded, fun and artistic people of all walks of life, professionals and those trendsetters in the styling industry. Her specialty with wedding day styling has had several of her clients fly her to Paris, Florida, Arizona and Minnesota to help attend to their special days. Her positive outlook on life, as she grows her business acumen, has cultivated a family of clientele and a warm, welcoming cosmetology experience.
