Lyn is an artist. She excels in natural-looking brunettes who want to incorporate bright, rich highlights. Lyn has also mastered how to create shiny mysterious auburns, and illuminating blondes that pop!

It took Steve a while to recognize that he had found his calling when he discovered the hairstyling industry at the tender age of 15. He began his career through an “at risk youth” program in Wasilla Alaska.
Born and raised in Alaska, hair was an opportunity that would later turn into a passion of a lifetime.
“Life is an amazing journey that is full of opportunity and choices.”
Starting out life on a homestead in Talkeetna AK, Steve has a unique skill set and outlook on life. He has incorporated this resourcefulness and creativity into a passion for creating hair that reflects the individual.
“Everyone has a backstory, it’s who you are at the core. I feel it’s best to embrace it and continue creating the stories you want.”
At 18 Steve moved to Sacramento California and would ultimately confirm his commitment to the beauty industry. While working with great mentors and servicing a higher end clientele, Steve gained great confidence and experience.
Still not feeling California fit his lifestyle, Steve found himself in a relationship that would bring him to Oregon.
As one of The SALON cofounders, Steve has dedicated his career to mentoring younger stylists and raising the level of the salon industry.
