Scarlett, who is from a third-generation of hairstylists including her mother and grandmothers, says her mission is not only to make one look pretty, but “we want to reveal your beauty to the world.
We have been committed to total hair care and restoration and will continue to keep that as among our main focus. As we celebrate 20 years, I am proud to say that
Hair Odyssey is synonymous with incredible hair styles that takes its lead from the top trends of today,” she adds. A mother of two daughters, Scarlett has been described by her peers and clients as “a highly trained, creative and style-savvy expert.”
