Stylist | Satya Curl LLC

The solid foundation of her career began 1983 as an apprentice to Peter Green of the Vidal Sassoon British Invasion fame.  He was the owner of La Coupe Salon, NYC, Peter Green Hair Salon, White Plains, NY, and now author of a mystery series.  With kindness and discipline Peter is still Claudia’s mentor to the present day.

In 2006 Claudia discovered her love for curls and pursued training at Devachan Salon in SoHo, NY.  The infectious enthusiasm of the founder, Lorraine Massey drew Claudia in.  This was the artistic game changer…  She became a bit of a groupie heading into SoHo once a month for more training.

Attending trainings at John Sahag NYC,Toni & Guy NYC, Devachan, Curly Hair Artistry & The Original Curl by Curl ™️ Method at Spiral XYZ in TriBeCa with Lorraine Massey, Claudia intuitively customizes haircuts for her clients as well as educating them on all phases of curl care, taking lifestyle and emotions into consideration.  This passion earned her the “BEST OF WESTCHESTER For Curly Hair 2015” Editors choice award.

Claudia has fallen in love with Vermont and is now sharing her passion for curls at the Honeycomb Beauty & Wellness Center under the name Satya Curl.  As a certified yoga instructor she brings yogic philosophy to her art… Satya is Sanskrit for TRUTH. She encourages embracing your own hair truth with support and guidance.
 “We all have our hair truths… it’s our own unique accessory that we were born with and it should be celebrated every single day!”
