Victoria Tawney

Victoria Tawney:Owner Level 4 Stylist Started at Victoria's 5th Avenue Salon: October 1992 Licensed in 1983 in the state of New York, Victoria has been building her career in the hair care industry for over 30 years. In October of 1992 the doors of Hair Carvers were opened to the Apollo Beach community after she was encouraged by her husband to open her own salon. Ten years later in 2002 the salon was doubled in size and remodeled to accommodate the growing number of guests. What Victoria enjoys most as a stylist is the artistry of multi-dimensional highlighting. Understanding the theory of color to create natural contrasts is important to her. She is a very visual person and utilizes this skill to help guests determine what color and cut best suits their face shape and features. In recent years the salon has undergone alterations; the implementing of a level-based system for the benefit of stylists and guests alike, becoming Redken certified, and changing over the title of "Hair Carvers" for the current "Victoria's 5th Avenue Salon." Though the initial goals have broadened and many things have changed over the years, Victoria's intentions have not. Her number one goal has always been the satisfaction of her guests and she prides herself on managing the most effectual, friendly, and successful salon in the Apollo Beach community.
