It’s not difficult to notice that most hairdressers share 3 common characteristics: they are passionate, glamorous and share an unspoken trust with their clients. If you want to meet someone who is passionate about what she does, you must come to our Joseph & Friends Vickery location and book an experience with Mitzi Shirley. Originally from Charlotte, NC, Mitzi’s passion for hair first showed when she was 5 years old and started cutting her dolls’ hair and coloring it with markers. She then “advanced” to cutting her little sister’s hair when she was 8. Mitzy went to Chris Logan Beauty College in 1995, but then due to different turns in her life began to work in accounting. After years in the corporate world she decided to go back to “her true love”, HAIR, and enrolled in the AVEDA Institute of Atlanta to expand her skills and knowledge with the newest trends and techniques. Mitzi loves color, especially the way it can bring a client’s face alive, but she believes that a great color deserves a great cut. The favorite part of her job is meeting new guests and making them happy. Mitzi has a great sense of humor and loves making people laugh; it’s a joy to be around her. What she likes best about working at Joseph & Friends is being a part of a team that is a family and encourages her to continue her education and further herself as an artist. When Mitzi is not working she’s travelling with her husband looking for adventures or visiting her daughter at the University of South Carolina. Her favorite AVEDA products are Blue Malva Shampoo and Light Elements Defining Whip. Visit Mitzi at our Vickery location and let her give you the experience of your life!
