In her book, Get Some Hairapy! A hairdresser’s prescription for happiness Aura Mae shares her best insights and stories from 20 years behind the chair to help you create the life you deserve. Copies are available in the salon, from your favorite bookseller, or online.
Aura spent the 1990’s teaching classes and workshops to hairdressers across the country for Goldwell USA. Today she is on the Brocato and Kadus Teams for Beautopia. She excels at creative and corrective haircolor, serves on the Board of Directors for the American Board of Certified Haircolorists and is a popular speaker at their annual Energizing Summit.
Her most requested classes are “Getting and Keeping the Clients You Want” (branding and marketing for small, independently owned salons) and “Creativity Boot Camp” (for hairdressers in a rut who want to be re-energized in their craft.) Her cutting training started at Vidal Sassoon in 1988, and her continued commitment to education is unparalleled.
One of the few people who can claim to have lived upwind of where they make Tabasco Sauce and to have attended Death Valley High School (Go Scorpions!) Aura Mae now lives in the Seattle area where she has owned a small salon since 1991.
