Having grown up in England, Joanna trained extensively with Steiners, and did advanced training with Vidal Sassoon. She taught for both Wella and L’Oreal before moving to the United States.

With a 30 year career in the hair industry, Joanna has spent the past 15 years on Boston’s prestigious Newbury Street, and has received enormous recognition. As former owner of Solus, she was the four-time recipient of the coveted “Best of Boston” award (voted “Best Hair Colorist” by Boston Magazine), and was twice named by “Allure Magazine” as one of the top ten hair colorists in the United States. She was also named the who's who of American colorists in “Town and Country Magazine.”

Joanna’s passion for natural hair color and classic cutting techniques have her in New York three times a year with New York colorist Beth Minardi, where she keeps up-to-date with the newest hair innovations.

Recognizing a growing need for exceptional hair services on Boston’s North Shore, Joanna splits her time up between Stilisti Salon on Newbury Street and the
Giraud Studio.
