certified IBE artist and colorist | petra tuss
Hello! I'm Petra, proudly serving the Greater Eastside of Seattle since 2002 as your local Hair Color and more recently, Invisible Bead Extensions (IBE®️) specialist. If you've been in my chair before, you can testify to my honest, straightforward personality while keeping your hair goal and the overall health of your hair 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 recently, extensions. As 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.
I specialize in luxury hand-tied IBE®️ Extensions and hair color. Whether it is more of a Boho lived-in color or precision gray blending. In addition, I take advantage of various quality educational opportunities to serve you better and expand and refine my skills.
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 and need a quiet place to get some work accomplished while getting your hair refreshed.
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.
