Debra Quackenbush

Debra Quackenbush is a passionate and successful salon owner and active hair designer with over 25 years of experience serving a diverse clientele. Her philosophy is to provide a client experience that combines exceptional technique with a relaxing salon environment.

Debra began her career with intensive training at the distinguished Vidal Sassoon Academy, now located in Beverly Hills. She has since traveled to Washington DC to take advantage of Essential Looks classes offering coloring and cutting techniques through Schwarzkopf Academy. 

Each year, Debra continually innovates as a master cut and design professional by traveling to Montreal to study with her mentor and primary source of inspiration, Kathy Simon -- creator of the prestigious Mekka Systems. This system emphasizes the principles of geometry and structural design followed by artists, designers and architects for centuries. Debra applies these principles to structural hair design elements, including haircuts and color, to work with each client’s unique architectural head shape and lines. This approach allows Debra to evaluate and execute the appropriate pattern placement principles and create a blue print. With this vision, Debra can visually express fun, avant-garde or more conservative individualized designs that enhance and reveal a client’s beauty.

Debra is also a master color specialist who takes great care to match color placement with the direction of the cut, and ensures the color tone complements the clients’ skin tone and facial structure. She stays abreast of cutting edge trends and continually integrates new techniques to create exciting looks for her clients. Debra recently incorporated Schwarzkopf’s new color system which can process hair color in just ten minutes. And to ensure that her clients’ looks last as long as possible, she provides education on their follow up care and maintenance, an example of the exceptional level of service and care to which Debra is committed.
