Christie Dier – Owner/Stylist/Pulp Riot Indie Educator
I always said I’d never become a salon owner, but in 2013 at age twenty-two, the door of opportunity opened and I couldn’t resist. Less than two years in, we were growing beyond our walls and I rebirthed the business as Lotus Beauty Lounge in January of 2015, which is located in a unique space on the second floor of Hanover Square in Horseheads, NY. Learn more about our space here.
I completed my fundamental education through GST BOCES, a local cosmetology school in 2009. From 2007 to present, I have used my love for traveling to continually gain experience through intensive training in London, LA, NYC, Nashville, and Las Vegas via TONI&GUY, Aveda, and Paul Mitchell specifically. I have also been a freelance stylist at Bonnaroo Music Festival for two years.
When it comes to standing behind the chair I understand how beneficial it is to listen to you, the client. I Follow that by helping to build confidence through continually educating you on tools, products, and styling techniques at each visit.
Above all, I value the family bond that forms with each person who sits in my chair. Although I love radical change (for hair is your greatest accessory), I am dedicated to delivering what looks and feels best for each client as an individual. Over the years I have become a go-to girl for modern men’s grooming, bold and bright colors, and the ever so trusting ‘make overs’ that give me complete creative freedom. I also specialize in refined haircutting for cooperate America to the underground punk.
My clientele ranges in all ages, professions, ethnicity, and textures.
