    After being a Hair Stylist for 25 plus years, I still love going to work and getting to do what I do. I believe continuing education keeps me motivated, and current on what is going on in the hair industry. I am able to bring that to my clients and help them achieve the look they desire. I have established a long and caring relationship with my clients that I treasure. I have the great pleasure of meeting, working on, and working with some amazing people.

    Cutting hair has always been a joy in my life. Initially, I enjoyed cutting my kids' hair and it was then that I realized that hairstyling was my passion. The most beneficial factor of hairstyling is the rewarding feeling you get after cutting a client's hair and knowing that I made their hair beautiful. Another reason why hairstyling is my passion is because I like working with people in the salon; everybody is friendly and we have fun together. It is not only the employees that make the job fun, but the clients as well. Overall, hairstyling has given me the opportunity to meet new people and has opened diversity in my life.

    Karen Underwood

    I’m a Mother of two boys; who grew up in Hawaii. I remember as a teenager cutting my friends and brothers hair. I really didn’t know what I was doing, but I enjoyed it and it grew into a passion for me. They kept coming back for more; so I persued that passion and sharpened my survial skils. When I look back on my decision to be a Hairstylist, I wouldn’t change a thing about the path I chose or did it choose me. I’ve been at Special F/X now for eleven years and it has been by far the best experience of my career.
