Salon Owner & Expert Stylist

Specialities: Brunettes/Reds/Blondes/Balayage/Extensions

A hairstylist for over 15 years, Denise has strived to create an environment for clients, stylists and women to thrive and be the best versions of themselves. Denise's passion to create beauty and help to build confidence has led to a rich career and 7 years ago, the creation of Studio H Salon in Washington. Early on, Denise found that being a hairstylist can be more than a "second job" or support role. She found that she could not only survive, but thrive in the beauty industry and more importantly, thrive in life. She made it her mission to create an environment where clients could come, be heard, be supported and feel confident when they left the salon. That drive turned into a life goal to build a space where stylists could become successful, confident and be part of a "family." Studio H Salon has been Denise's passion for seven years and continues to grow. The drive to grow the beauty industry led her to build an ever-growing social media presence. She uses her platform to educate, inspire and support clients. Additionally, she helps stylists and young artists to realize their dreams and goals. Denise's passion and dedication has been rewarded with features and publications from BehindTheChair.com, Hairdotcom, Modern Salon, and having brand partnerships with Redken, and Olivia Garden, among others.

"I want to create an environment for women to thrive and to have an easier and better life!" - Denise Welsh

Salon Manager

I'm Karley! I've been a Washingtonian since birth! I am driven and passionate about everything I do! Working at Studio H is an absolute JOY and one of my greatest blessings. Being surrounded by such a strong group of women who champion each other in all they do has been incredibly special to be a part of. When I am not working, I am spending time with my husband, my family, reading a good book, or working on my photography business that I licensed back in 2020! Along with being the manager at Studio H, I also have the pleasure of running our social media accounts and photographing all the magic behind the scenes!

Master Stylist

 

Specialities: "Lived-in" Color/Cuts/Extensions

Hi! I'm Damaris aka @dama.beauty - I have been doing hair for four years. I started my career working at a salon in an assisted living facility and loved working with the older folks, but decided I wanted to specialize in color. I started working at Studio H in their amazing associates program and soon I was on the floor ready to start taking my own clients! Since then, I've been certified as a Redken Specialist as well as Redken Hair Color Authority. I truly enjoy big transformations and creating beautiful lived-in balayages which is why I've also become a Certified Balayage Master! If I'm not in the salon, you'll probably find me exploring the world, learning about new cultures, and admiring the new places. I also love being home with two fur babies! I can't wait to meet you and learn more about you while you're in my chair!

Hi! I'm Taylin and I am one of the front desk coordinators at Studio H Salon. A passion that I've found in life is to go to school to become a lash esthetician!

Front Desk Coordinator

Hey, I'm Anastasiia! I was born and raised in Siberia, and moved to Washington State by myself at the end of 2022. Despite being pretty new here, I already have a pleasant feeling that I've put down my roots. I've found real friends whom I can trust, new places that inspire me, and a cool job where I'm surrounded by professional and passionate people. Before I moved here I had been working as a web designer remotely and traveled a lot. I started to learn English diligently in London, UK in 2019 so I have a pretty weird combo of different accents. In my free time I'm exploring PNW hikes with my friends, and working on my motion graphic design portfolio.
