Meet Felicia Aucoin
Felicia is one of our senior stylists. A great stylist and colorist with a flair for balayage. Your stylist for that special hair for that special event. She has been in the hair industry to over 5 years and most recently at Darling Hair Boutique in Needham.
Did you always want to be a hairstylist?
I've always been very interested in hair since I was a little girl. In high school I did a lot of my friends hair for prom and formals. When I graduated high school I felt like I had to go to college, so I tried it. But after a year and a half I left and went to hair school.
What prompted you to get into hair?
I was very unsure what I wanted to study in college, nothing sparked my interest. I took a tour of a cosmetology school and instantly knew that's where I was supposed to be.
What was your first hairstylist job?
II started working at a salon in Needham as an assistant and then worked my way onto the floor from there.
Can you tell us about a memorable moment you had while doing hair?
Doing a bride's hair on their wedding day is always memorable. There's nothing more rewarding then seeing how beautiful and excited she is because of the work you've done.
What is the best part of your job?
I love making people feel more confident in themselves, whether it's a new cut and color or a fun blowout for the night.
Which hairstyles do you tend to do the most often?
Ever since the trend has started, I do a lot of balayage.
What are the biggest hair care do's and dont's?
Try not to wash your hair everyday. Professional shampoo and conditioner really do make a difference!
When you are not making others beautiful, what is your favorite occupation?
Going on a run, or hanging out with friends and family.
