Stephanie Runyan

Master Colorist & Stylist : Women & Men's Hair

Stephanie grew up in Atlanta, Georgia, and has remained throughout her education and extensive experience in the salon and hair industries. She attended Paul Mitchell School Atlanta, and graduated in 2009. She began her career at the well-renowned Van Michael Salon in Buckhead. After her first year, she moved to Charleston, South Carolina where she specialized in the bridal industry. Charleston is a popular location for destination weddings, so it seemed the perfect place to learn bridal technique. She carried her experience back to Atlanta on the runway with the world famous Italian fashion designer Giambattista Valli, whose couture is presented annually at Paris Fashion Week. Stephanie refined her French technique under a well-known French hair colorist. 

In 2015, Stephanie opened her own salon suite at My Salon Suites of Brookwood in Atlanta. She continues to further her expertise by participating in professional development courses and traveling to keep-up-to-date with fashion and trends in hair. This year, she has attended the SOHO Academy and forums for men's cutting and clipping techniques. While at the SOHO Academy, she studied revolutionary trends for brunette and red head coloring. 

Aside from hair styling and coloring, Stephanie likes to spend time with her husband, Vincent, her Newfoundland, Charlie, and attend meditation and mindfulness seminars with one of her favorite clients, Lena Franklin. Some of Stephanie's favorite restaurants in Atlanta include: Better Half, Gunshow, and Bartaco, Westside. Stephanie and Vincent reside in Cabbagetown and were married in Key West, Florida in the fall of 2015.
