I have been doing hair since my first week of cosmetology school back in 1986. Since then I have been hooked on this industry very much! Helping people look their best is very rewarding: If you look good, you feel good!
I continued training after graduation from cosmetology school with honors, by taking classes and working as a stylist assistant. My mentor was Sassoon-trained, and my experience and skills grew under their guidance.
I have worked around the Twin Cities metro area in many salons and in many positions, finally earning the title Platinum Design Stylist.
I have participated in numerous training seminars, classes, and shows, from some big names within the industry.
I served as an in-salon educator and class instructor leading workshops and one-on-one training to beginning stylists among many other rolls. I have assisted in many training videos, and did hair for photo shoots. During one hair show, I was even awarded excellence in “Way Out” styling, which was very fun!
My biggest and most exciting leap was to be a Self Employed/Independent Contractor/Manager (now Salon Suite Owner) Operating my own business— Hair Design By Tom, LLC.
Hair Design By Tom was established in 2008.
Many of my salon clients come from Plymouth, Minnetonka, and other neighboring cities such as Maple Grove, Medina, Hamel, Wayzata, New Hope, Golden Valley, Hopkins, and Osseo, MN.
Also serving St. Louis Park, Minneapolis, Eden Prairie, Long Lake, Deephaven, Woodland, Greenwood, Minnetonka Beach, and Excelsior!
