About Heather Cleaves
With more than 17 years of experience, Heather began her journey as a hairstylist assisting and training at Paul Mitchell's Robert Cromeans Salon in San Diego. She then moved to Carlsbad and met Andrew Dale, former Vidal Sassoon educator and owner of then Dale International, now CEO and founder of UNITE hair. She went through their intense training program under Dale and his team, and upon completion was allowed to begin a career that would forever change her life. Heather has a passion for her craft that reflects in all that her hands touch. Early on she had an innovative vision to see people transformed and feeling beautiful, on the outside as well as within. Since a little girl, there was always something intriguing to her about watching people walk away after a couple hours at the hair salon with a different level of confidence and joy. She has a seemingly effortless talent and an undeniable edge that goes beyond boundaries. Heather is an exceptional educator and has an irrefutable dedication to her clients. Specializing in all that is current and classic, her cutting and coloring techniques are incomparable. She still enjoys taking classes and growing her knowledge about everything new that is happening in the industry. She exemplifies excellence and is one of the most sought after stylists in her community. Heather's ultimate goal is to give her clients the achievable hair that they have always wished for, the technical understanding on how to achieve that hair every day, and the confidence and reminder that you're beautiful and you deserve to feel it during every moment of your life. Her specialities include but are not limited to: Balayage, hair coloring, haircutting, Brazilian Blowout, and hair extensions. She loves making sure that every experience she has with her guests is one to be remembered.
