LADY LAIR by AVM is excited to announce the arrival of SUSAN SOMERVILLE. Susan has been specializing in all aspects of hair coloring techniques and theory as an

American Board Certified Hair Colorist. Susan was trained by the Clairol institute, L'Oréal institute, Redken Goldwell Color Intense 1 and 2, and by Wella as a color educator. Having always been a seeker of knowledge (and a big hair nerd), Susan loved to learn from other professionals who inspired her and who she truly admired as Artists.

Susan is constantly looking for new challenges and has recently attended events like

Lisa Loves Balayage 2017, Masters of Balayage 2017 and Behind the chair 2016 and 2017. Susan also worked, trained and stood side by side with @hairgod_zito at the Bolds and Blonds Tour 2018.

As much as She loves learning, She is equally passionate about sharing information with others who want to master their craft and provide excellence to their clients. Susan believes in understanding that knowledge is power and what you do with that power depends on you. She also believes we should be educating our clients as a professionals, but also educating our colleagues and peers, which is why, in 2000, She began her journey as an independent color educator, teaching other professionals hair color techniques as well as theory.

Her workshops evolved and became an eclectic mix that doesn’t just focus on a specific color company or technical and theoretical skills. She designed them to provide other professionals with all the necessary skills needed to lay a solid foundation to build a loyal repeat clientele.

Consistently one of the biggest problems colorists encounter is the expectation of their client. Consultation is an art and learning how to navigate through this portion of the salon experience requires more than just confidence in your skills.

Susan will teach a Stylist techniques to get to know their clients by knowing what questions to ask in order to gain a full understanding of their past color and/or chemical history, salon experiences, lifestyle, and hair care routine likes and dislikes.

Susan is not only amazingly talented but also an AMAZING Woman!

We are so excited to have Susan join our LAIR family and ride this Fantastic Journey with our Brand!
