Aundra grew up on a farm in South Dakota and has been immersed in creative works and art since she was young. After her teenage years were spent seeking out beauty knowledge and cutting her younger sister’s hair, she naturally gravitated towards a career in the hair and beauty industry. Aundra attended hair classes taught by Micky Hatoum, Dana Hodges, Tim Humphries, Mirza Batanovic, Jeffrey Mayo, Gerard Annunziato, Steven De Caro, and other influential master stylists. She also completed hands-on hair color training at Goldwell NYC Academy and has studied under various mentors from other parts of the world.
In 2012, Aundra tapped into her inner ‘Wonder Woman’ and made a life-changing decision to move to Charlotte to further develop her talent and skill set behind the chair. Through continuous educational opportunities and knowledge gained in coveted salon environments, Aundra’s niches expanded to balayage, corrective color, long layers, and haircuts. She favors French-influenced salon techniques. Getting to embrace her creativity to make people look and feel beautiful every day brings her great joy.
When Aundra isn’t at the salon, she enjoys hiking with her husband and rescued huskies, supporting the local music scene, gardening, and exploring Charlotte’s array of restaurants. Ultimately, she has made Rē her salon home for the exciting and upscale team environment and to do what she lives for every day – enhancing and bringing out others’ best selves through hairstyling.
