Buffy Smith

•Sr. Director Designer Element 5•Salon Mentor•

Buffy is always ready to take on any kind of new technique with enthusiasm. She is continually pushing herself beyond her knowledge. “I started cutting hair when I was eight years old. When I moved here from Chicago I planned on following in my mother’s footsteps as a painter, but painters spend too much time alone. I found hair to be a much more exciting and graduated from Professional Beauty School over 14 years ago. People ask me what I do for fun and the honest truth is that I do hair and makeup! I read books by stylists and makeup artists, watch videos, study old and new movies for inspiration, pay attention to subculture, Hollywood, and high fashion. My passions are foiling, soft textured cuts, short hair, wavy hair, haircuts designed around face shape, styling updo’s for special occasions, natural makeup to bring out your best features, and design waxing. My goal is to continue doing fashion shows and photo shoots. I am so excited to work on a team with such creative and talented women. I love that Belú is a forward-thinking salon.”
