Meet Sam

“I will never own my own salon!” Never say never! With the encouragement of my late husband, Ian, my daughter, Savannah, and other family members, I ate my words and started a new venture with Split Enz Salon. I am most grateful for the support of Ian and Savannah for believing in me and putting up with my late hours. They both saw my passion for my career, community and education believing it would be best suited on Main Street in Gloucester Village. Since the beginning in 2013, the salon has grown building a team of talented individuals bringing their best on a daily basis. I am blessed to know I have a career in my passion with people that share the same enthusiasm. We are a family owned company, working within our own Split Enz Family.

I began my career as a cosmetology graduate from Gloucester High School in 1994. Continued to receive my instructor license through Rappahannock Community College which allowed me to build internal training programs for the previous company. I have received certifications and trainings all over the world and enjoy bringing the experiences back home to Gloucester County. Each training has qualified me to develop and build upon our Total Look Concept, personalizing each style and design to the individual and their unique selves. I enjoy bringing out the hidden qualities of the texture and person into one style. I love, love, love haircutting! I love, love, love seeing the person come alive.

Years later, I am still passionate about my community and how Split Enz Salon can be an asset to the same program that developed me. With the strong team I have, I’ve been able to get back to my hobbies of hiking, yoga, and cooking healthy. My family has expanded beyond Savannah and I to my husband Eric and his three children. I am a blessed woman and hope to be that for every person that enters Split Enz Salon.
