Lynda has been cutting hair since the age of eleven. As the last apprentice accepted by the South Carolina Board of Cosmetology, she trained under Frances DuBose, an international coiffeurs hairstylist, starting in 1978 and has been certified by Tressa as a Color Specialist and Educator.
Lynda has been recognized throughout her career to be included by Ladies Home Journal as one of “America’s Top 100 Pro’s” known especially for her blunt cuts, as well as by Elle Magazine for her outstanding work in color.
Sponsored by Charleston Magazine, Lynda and the Allure Salon staff were asked to be the first salon to debut at Charleston Fashion Week. Allure executed the over-all style, look, design and coordination of over 40 models and designers to showcase the latest in hair fashion.
A passion for hair lead Lynda to shows and classes all over the world. Since then she has been recognized for her Outstanding Service by the South Carolina Advisory Board on behalf of Jerry Poer and Charleston Cosmetology Institute, making her not only a master of her work, but one who gives back to the industry she loves.
