In 1985, Tamara graduated from the Vidal Sassoon Academy in London, England. After graduating, she was one of two chosen stylists, out of forty-five applicants, to work for Vidal Sassoon in London. When she finished her apprenticeship in London, Tamara was transferred to Hamburg, Germany to train with some of Sassoon’s top stylists. She moved back to the US and worked at a top Beverly Hills salon before opening her own salon in 1994. In the following years, Tamara built a clientele of celebrities and professionals. She has worked on editorial shoots, movie sets, and TV shows, but her real passion is to be in the salon and see the amazing work that comes out of her salon by the incredible team of stylists that work there.
