BoPeep Pierce

 Stylist & Educator
Toni & Guy Educated/Color Specialist
With 20 years of experience working behind the chair; I’ve come to realize that it’s an opportunity to work with clients in helping them look their very best. I’ve lived in Georgetown and raised both of my children here. I’ve owned a salon in the past, and have worked at spas as well.  I am classically trained in hair color and hi light techniques. Most of my  training has been from Toni & Guy out of Dallas. I especially love cutting hair. I feel that it’s an art form of sculpting a shape that best suits my client. I love to take continuing education classes. I believe we must invest in ourselves and our education. As we are all students throughout life. One of the the beautiful truths about the salon industry is; a classic look NEVER goes out of style. I look forward to working with each and everyone of you.
