Nice to meet you! I’m Heather.
After 11 years of hairdressing, my hands became incredibly sensitive to common salon toxins and well-known luxury product lines. Think itchy hives, painful rashes, and flakey dry skin… even from a simple styling cream. As devastating as that was being a hairstylist, it led me to seek out the best of the best naturally derived hair care products + color line that the beauty industry had to offer.
I’m a former Portland hairstylist now serving clients full time in beautiful Bend Oregon. I specialize in creating soft textured haircuts and sun-kissed color, all while using quality, organic, & eco-friendly hair care products.
Additional hair specialties include:
creating low maintenance hair color
creating dimensional hair color
beachy / tousled hair styles
blended / layered haircuts
helping clients embrace their natural hair color without the painful grow out period (#RockYourGrey )
building shape into fine hair textures
de-bulking thick hair to create a more manageable style
helping clients transition from pixie cut to medium / long lengths
improving the health & integrity of over processed / damaged hair
A few of the things my clients say they appreciate most about our time together is my attention to detail, thorough consultation, and genuine love for hairdressing. My background includes working with & gaining education from some of the industries finest such as: Aveda, Goldwell, KMS, Bumble & Bumble, Nine Zero One, Oribe, NBR (Natural Beaded Rows), and Salt Hair.
When I’m not behind the salon chair you can find me adventuring around town with my fiancé Brennon and our dog babe Abby, reading some sort of personal development book (#NerdAlert), or teaching Hip Hop Dance classes at Sekse Fitness Boutique here in Bend.

Organic Hair Care Products
From shampoos to styling creams to wooden hair brushes, my goal as a stylist is to use products that are as natural as possible while still performing at professional standards. After scouring the beauty industry for clean lines that work, I’ve culminated a few of my favs: Innersense Organic Beauty, Oway (aka Organic Way), and Tek Italian Hairbrushes.
Nature is at the center of Innersense Organic Beauty . They believe that choosing clean, pure, beautiful haircare is the smart, simple way to create a love story between you and your hair. Their products are crafted from certified organic plant ingredients your hair will love in luxurious formulations that deliver hydration, health, moisture, shine, and protection only our girl Mother Nature can provide.
Organic Way (Oway) is the world’s first professional organic hair color, care, and styling line with biodynamic, organic, and fair trade ingredients. Their green chemists hand select the highest quality formulations to achieve professional results without the use of common salon toxins. Oway immerses clients in a multi-sensorial, non-toxic salon experience with active botanicals and pure essential oils.
Tek is an Italian company that produces natural, artisan, 100% FSC certified wooden brushes and combs, all hand made in Italy. With special attention given to environmental protection, every single component of Tek’s wooden products have been crafted following sustainable principles.
Organic Way Hair Color
As a former Aveda hairstylist, finding a naturally derived color line was incredibly important to me. I also valued finding a brand that aligned with the type of hair I dig doing most: quality, natural looking, sun kissed hues. It didn’t take long to discover this European & Australian favorite (although it’s becoming increasingly popular throughout the States).
Organic Way is the world’s first ever color line with certified biodynamic, organic, and fair trade ingredients, grown on 50,000 square miles of chemical-free farmland in Bologna Italy. Made with pure essential oils and micronized botanicals, Oway is free from ammonia, SLS, parabens, PEGS/PPGS, mineral oils, synthetic fragrance, and never tested on animals. 🐭
When planning the move from Portland to Bend, I looked at over 50 salons in central Oregon for the perfect salon home for my guests. I wanted to find a space where you felt welcomed, cozy, taken care of, and at ease. The Parlor is just that.
A bungalow built in the 1920’s, The Parlor now offers hair, nail, skin, and lash services all curated by independent beauty providers. We are located at:
