Amanda Fox

Hair & Makeup Artist
From early on, our newest artist Amanda has always been very artistically inclined and quick to excel at new teachings. She found that concentrating on art throughout most of her education helped her develop her unique and personal expression, which contributes to her wonderful personality and confidence behind the chair here at PLATINUM.


After a short stint at college, where she majored in Graphic Design with a Fine Art concentration, Amanda realized that the traditional college path was just not for her. After careful consideration, she decided to take her artistic ability and express it through the mediums of hair and makeup. It was then that she realized her true passion for the industry, and made it her goal to experience everything she could in order to be well rounded in all areas.


Amanda completed her training at Continental School of Beauty, and she left the program with incredibly high regards from all of her instructors. While completing her training at Continental, Amanda also found her new home here with us and quickly settled into the role of Salon Coordinator, eager to soak up all of the knowledge her new teammates had to share. Now that Amanda has graduated and become a licensed stylist, her natural talent and innate eye for detail are guaranteed to take her career to great places, so book with her now before she fills up!
