certified IBE Master Technician and Colorist | petra tuss
Hello! I'm Petra, proudly serving the Greater Eastside of Seattle since 2002. I am an IBE®️ Master Extension technician specializing in luxury hand-tied and hair color. Whether it is more of a Boho lived-in color or precision gray blending. If you've been in my chair before, you can testify to my honest, straightforward personality while keeping your hair goal and overall health in mind.
My journey with hair started as a young child with an intense fascination with cutting hair, my own, younger family members, neighbors' children, and dolls. One could say I found my calling early on. Lol. Ironically I didn't realize this until I spent a few years in college. Since graduating from Gene Juarez, I have consistently sought out advanced education and enjoyed the opportunity to narrow in on my true passions within the hair industry, color, and more recent years, extensions.
Being an independent stylist has allowed me the freedom to express more of who I am and be the kind of mother I choose to be. When I'm not behind the chair or enjoying continued education, I wear many titles: wife, mother of two beautiful girls, dog mom, and entrepreneur. I am constantly changing or repurposing things in our house and playing with our family dogs. In addition, we enjoy camping and exploring new places on my weekends off.
As a mother of two, I know the importance of feeling special, pampered, and beautiful in a relaxing ambiance. Therefore, I strive to offer high-quality services and a fun and comfortable atmosphere. Allowing you to leave your hectic day behind, sip on a favorite beverage from Tangerines barista (Monday - Friday), and indulge in the snack bar when you arrive. My salon suite is the perfect place if you are a busy mama or in need of a quiet place to get some work accomplished while getting your hair refreshed.
How to book an appointment with me
I require everyone to complete a brief extension questionnaire before booking with me. Once I have reviewed your application, I will contact you for a consultation. At this time, we will discuss maintenance, home care, and products and pick out your hair. A 50% non-refundable deposit is due to secure your installation appointment. The remainder of the installation is due at the installation date.
You will find that I am conscious of our planet and doing what I can to preserve it. I invest in companies that align my salon with health and the environment, like Original Minerals (O&M), Oway, IBE®️ and Goldie Locks.
