Adam Shipley, Master Stylist & Owner
Adam started working in a quaint family salon in North Carolina after graduating cosmetology school in 2008. He then moved to Virginia Beach to grow his career. Adam focused on expanding his education thru Wella, Aveda, and Schwarzkopf color. While working in some of the top salons he always felt a calling to establish his own salon that fellow stylists could call home. At Ava Marie Salon and Spa he has changed the established norm from client to hair experience.
Adam’s Hair Advice:
Invest in salon grade shampoo and conditioner that is sulfate free and paraben free to protect your hair color. When washing your hair it is important to shampoo your scalp and condition only your ends. Finding a stylist that cares for you and your well-being is of the utmost importance.
