Barb has been a stylist and owner of The Hair Studio since 1977. She specializes in color corrections and is the only Redken Certified Colorist in Lasalle County. Barb believes in continuing education so she can provide the best educated services to her clients. Some of her accomplishments include: Redken Exchange in New York City , Redken Master/Specialist Programs, mentored with ABCH Margie Navratil in Lincolnshire IL , attended and completed "Color America" with renowned colorist Beth Minardi in Chicago IL.  Barb is passionate about all aspects of hair design and hair coloring!

In 2007, Barb became the first Redken Certified Colorist in LaSalle County. As of today, there are only two certified colorists in the county. She has also completed design comprehensive classes in New York City at the Redken Exchange.

As a Redken Certified Colorist, her clients count on her for gorgeous, shiny, healthy-looking hair color. With Redken color, Barb knows that all of her clients will leave her chair with beautiful, glossy results that will last. She specializes in all areas of hair, but Barb is passionate about coloring hair.

Barb has an array of clients that  includes men, women and children that start at one year old and go all the way up to 80-something. Her work day is fun - She truly enjoys making all of her clients feel good about themselves inside and out!


I believe that if you love what you do, you'll never work a day in your life. I also believe that you should never stop learning and that change is always good!

In my spare time, I enjoy gardening, painting, and of course, coloring hair!
