About Us

There's nothing better than a good hair day. And we want you to have lots of them.

We LOVE our tribe here at Artifex. Our professional team members embrace a sense of spontaneity and fun while also providing clients with remarkable service and style. And our clients/guests/friends inspire and energize us on a daily basis.

We also love the community where we live, and we strive to live well by doing good. We especially enjoy giving our time and resources to things we believe in, particularly those causes supporting women, children, and animal welfare. Our most recent bi-annual project was a Christmas Wonderland to benefit those at Bethany House. Thank you, as always, for your support!
