Educator | Stylist | Owner

I practically grew up in a styling chair. Born to an African American father and Eastern European mother, I learned the art of manipulating a frizzy, curly fro with a mind of it’s own. I became the stylist of my mixed-race friends during the quirky 80s, when hair made as big of a social statement as plastic glow bracelets and acid wash cut-offs.

Client Love: “I have been coming to see Damian for so long, I followed him from Hair Play to Sargent Salon and now Damia Salon, in the same site as Sargent Studio, and I would follow him anywhere. Damian puts up with my crazy ideas and dreams of being blonde, which is pretty crazy, because my natural hair color is black. But he is patient with me and ultimately and most importantly gives me amazing hair! I recommend him and this salon!  -Florence F.
