Hair by Lydia

  • Hair color artist
  • Loctician
  • Dreadlocks

My name’s Lydia (she/her), and I am a color artist and loctician.

I graduated from Luross Academy in Ventura, CA and trained with my now mentor, Mindy Lovelocks, out of her dreadlock studio in the LA area.

I specialize in lived in blonds, vivids and dimensional color. I also do dreadlock maintenance, creation, synthetic dreadlock creation as well as installation. I am also a huge fan of doing blow outs! The higher the hair, the closer to the heavens!
I stay up to date with the newest hair trends, as well as take multi educational courses from amazing hair artists. There is so much to learn, and the creativity never stops.

I love using hair as a form of expression and beauty. Our hair gives us identity, strength and confidence. I pride myself getting you to your hair goals but also intend to keep your hairs’ health my number one priority. I want anyone who sits in my chair to feel safe, welcome and happy.

I live in Cottonwood, AZ and work at The Cottonwood Beauty Collective. In my me time, I love hiking, dancing, listening to so much music, reading books, eating amazing food, drinking great wine, adoring my 2 dogs and 1 cat, catching a live music show, being outside in nature, working out, or spending time with my Partner, who is a Barber.

I look forward to the connections I will make, the people I will meet, the laughs and conversations to be shared, as well as the trust you put into me, to make you look and feel your best.
