From instructing to fashion shoots to extensive education, Tucker has accumulated a wealth of experience with more than two decades in the hair and fashion industries. She followed her passion for hair styling right out of high school and first started work
for Van Michael in Atlanta, where she began to specialize in cuts, color and teaching styling and updo classes. Tucker was then recruited by Redken and traveled around the country for several years while doing photo editorial work.
In 1999, Tucker joined Kevin O'Connor, her former Van Michael colleague, to help found Salon Next. As salon director, Tucker balances her time with clients with the overall development and direction of the salon. In addition to her experience with cuts and color, she is certified in the Thermafuse f450 straightening system and the American Wave by Nick Arojo. She also has additional training through Cristiano Cora in New York.
