Dominique Natale Earle-Coppola

I am a hair designer, color artist and a designer of images. I strive for perfection in all that I do. I have a unique eye for color. I use this quality to bring out the natural beauty that a person has inside. By using color, I bring out the person's natural skin tones, as well as enhancing on their natural and physical beauty. I view each client as my own individual canvas and turn them into a masterpiece. When it comes to building a clients image, there is no room for error. I myself will not settle for anything less then the best. I demand nothing but the very best of myself and I pride myself on giving my clientele nothing but BEST.

Fashion and beauty are my life and I am constantly changing up my style to keep up with the latest trends. I would never give my client something that I myself would not wear. I understand that having a fashion forward and up to date stylist is crucial in the presentation of oneself and ones image. In today's world we need to stand out, to be our own brand, to promote ourselves, not just be like everyone else. Being your own person, with your own style is what sets you apart from the rest of the world, so you need to be unique. But what is different about me, is that I just do not give my clients their own unique look, I give them a whole new package, they have their own unique brand, their own unique sense of style. I give them and design them their own unique image.
