Risa joined Laboratorie in 2016, after spending nine years in various roles within the beauty industry. Starting out as an assistant in an award winning salon, she came to realize that she wanted to pursue a stylist position and began an in-house apprenticeship in 2011, receiving her license in 2014. After a brief stopover in a modern Barber Shop specializing in short cuts, Risa made her way to Laboratorie to further her skills and train under Rebecca Dorsey, our Director of Education. In December 2017, Risa completed her intensive training curriculum with Rebecca and was promoted to Junior Stylist. Still dedicated to growth and learning, Risa continues to train with us in-house as well as frequent classes outside of the salon with top educators.
Risa is also a visual artist and has won several awards for her sculpture work. As she continues to define her specialties and esthetic, Risa enjoys working on hair of all types and creating individualized looks.
