Soon into her education, she realized that hair color specifically was her calling.

After completing her education, she then began a color apprentice program at the famed Arrojo Studio.

Mae Bruno | Stylist

Mae Bruno has been in the industry for 14 years as a stylist, colorist, and educator. She has been creating hairstyles since childhood from Barbies with mohawks to her beautiful grandmother’s roller sets and pin curls, and all of the friends and family. Mae has always had a passion for all things hair.

 Studying fine arts painting in Philadelphia paved the way into a world of color and creative outlets. It became apparent that is was time to be a professional stylist when more dorm haircuts were happening than paintings. Mae went on to study at Vidal Sassoon in London, where she earned 7 diplomas in cutting, coloring, and teaching techniques. She naturally migrated back to the United States and trained with Bumble & Bumble, Toni & Guy, and worked at NYC fashion week.

 As a native Philadelphian, Mae worked at American Mortals. She cultivated a clientele over the years that became more of a family than clients. Making people feel comfortable and happy while they are in her chair, while also creating beautiful styles, is always her goal. Her styles can go from classic and timeless to lived in and rock and roll.

Megan Last | Stylist

With a passion and background in fashion, Megan moved from Vancouver, Canada to Los Angeles, California to expand her horizons and explore new opportunities. While working behind the scenes, her future was sealed as she quickly discovered her love for hair. 

 Completing training and becoming licensed in California, her love of undone beachy hair and perfectly placed sun-kissed highlights drew her to Santa Monica. Megan spent close to 10 years behind the chair. While working there, Megan also had her hands in hair outside of the salon doing everything from celebrity hair, music videos, and editorial photo shoots. When Megan moved to Portland in 2015 she continued to service her LA clientele by commuting monthly, and all the while, she established herself  in Portland. 

 Megan thrives on travel and adventure. She draws inspiration from nature, different cultures, and all aspects of her life. Her active, on-the-go lifestyle requires her own hair to be low maintenance, yet fashionable. She aspires to create the same for her clients. From beautiful, easy shapes and brilliant natural color, Megan’s approach is extremely visual. Don’t be surprised when you see Megan cutting dry hair or painting splashes of color as she sees fit. Whether your hair is long and layered, soft and curly, or short and textured she will find the optimal look, and will teach you how to recreate it at home.
