Hey I’m Gina,  don’t let my sweet and quiet demeanor fool you! This girl is a hair color powerhouse! I have been in the industry for 29 years! My knowledge of color, (my fave for grey coverage is Matrix!), is always expanding with my love for education. When I’m not behind the chair giving you a flawless look, you can most likely find me at a race track with my husband or cuddling with my new granddaughter!




Hello my name is Sue!
I started my career straight out of high school and have been working in this industry for 30 years. I specialize in highlighting, color and hair design. I have worked with many different color & hair care lines including Matrix, Aquage & Actiiv. I believe that continuing education in this field is very important not only to keep up with trends & products but to also understand & maintain them. Having owned my own business in the past, I understand that clients are the heart of our business I am grateful to have maintained most of my clientele my entire career . I am very passionate about what I do and believe that working hard and keeping my clientele satisfied keeps them looking their best.




I have been a team member here at Hot Locks for 20 years! Throughout these 20 years I have soaked up as much education as I can! I love keeping up with the trends, balayages, babylights, shadow roots.  You name it! But I also live for a classic and beautiful highlight. Education is very important to me. Whether it is to brush up on my basics or to learn a new and exciting technique in the wonderful world of hair, I am in! When I am not behind my chair I am busy raising 4 hilarious and lovely children, with my husband, Rick. We enjoy being together outside as much as possible. Flying kites, playing games, tending to a ginormous veggie garden or hiking the quarries around us.
