Calina has been doing hair for as long she can remember. Growing up in this industry really helped her in school, where she graduated as one of the top students in her class. Her career in hair started in Kennebunkport, Maine where she assisted for a year before joining the other stylists on the floor and taking her own clients. Calina says that you can never stop learning and that is why she has taken a vast array of classes. Some of these classes have taken her to the L‘Oreal Academy in New York where she worked with Matthew Morris from Kerastase on an up styling class. She also studied styling and cutting with Oribe in Boston as well as in New York City. She has taken precision and creative cutting classes in Manchester, NH with J Beverly Hills and with Eufora. Calina recently traveled to Los Angeles to attend four classes with J Beverly Hills. She took classes in advanced cutting and styling for curly hair, Smooth Realignment, mens barbering and advanced color placement. Calina is now certified in J Beverly Hills Smooth Realignment which is the most advanced type of smoothing treatment. She is certified in Platinum Seamless Extensions and worked for a short time as an educator for that company. Calina found it made her busy lifestyle even busier and couldn’t accommodate it anymore. Calina specializes in wedding styling and has had the privilege of doing hair for many brides. It is one of her favorite aspects of this industry!

Rebecca interest in hair started when her husband was in the military always needed his hair cut. She taught herself by watching youtube videos and she soon found a passion for creating styles. After four years and a baby boy, she put herself through cosmetology school at Empire in Somersworth. Knowing this was the career she had been looking for, she was motivated to find the perfect salon to work in. After school, she had her second baby and started to work at a salon in Kennebunk, doing what she loved. Rebecca knew she wanted to be the best she could be so she started looking for more educational classes to take and searched for a salon that provided an assistant program so she could learn from the best. Her search brought her to another salon in Kennebunk where Calina had assisted when she was just out of school. Rebecca assisted with weddings at Fringe in Kennebunk while she was also assisting at Studio 90 during the week. We could not have found a more motivated person to join our team as our assistant!
