Meet Our Newest Brooklyn Salon Team Member
It was love at first lock for Sunshine, who fell head-over-heels for hair when her godmother taught her how to braid her Barbie’s mane as a little girl. In that moment, something clicked and Sunshine never looked back, going on to earn and complete her first salon apprenticeship at just 16 years old. A talented colorist and stylist, Sunshine has worked in some of New York’s best salons including Maximus Salon & Spa and Ted Gibson Salon, and has also spearheaded photoshoot campaigns as Salon718’s Creative Director.
From balayage and ombre coloring procedures to keratin treatments and extensions, Sunshine has a broad range of talents that she brings to our roster of our hair coloring, cutting, and styling services. When left to her druthers, she loves to craft romantic, pretty styles that have notes of grit and edge. “I like things that are in juxtaposition–like yin and yang!” she says.
No matter the style, Sunshine makes hair health her priority. “I’m very big on the integrity of hair,” she explains. It’s also vital, she says, that she takes the time to listen to her clients and educate them on how to take care of their hair. “I want my clients to feel like they don’t have to worry about their hair,” she says. “When they’re educated it’s easy for them to recreate the look and get the same great results at home.”
Outside The Brooklyn Salon
Sunshine’s versatility also transfers to her work outside of the salon. From curating a Vogue Snapchat how-to story to beautifying brides on the WE Network’s David Tutera’s My Fair Wedding and from styling basketball’s gorgeous Brooklynettes dancers to coiffing locks on Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign, Sunshine has done it all.
One of Sunshine’s crowning moments as a stylist was styling singer Kelly Rowland’s hair for Miley Cyrus’ and Robin Thicke’s infamous MTV Video Music Awards performance. “I was definite in awe!” she says.
But Sunshine’s proudest moments come when her clients put their trust in her on a daily basis. “It really touches me,” she says. When you sit in her chair in our Prospect Heights salon, Sunshine promises to give you the same undivided attention and world-class service that she awards to our celebrity clientele. “It’s my goal to make clients feel heard, and I love to give them hairstyles they never would have imagined!”
