I am Amber Hemmerly, and ever since visiting the lake shore as a young girl I knew this is where I belonged.
I also had the same magnetism towards doing hair, nails, and skin care services. I enjoy beauty and fashion, but most of all people. When I knew I could combine all of those things into a career my mind was set.
I started my education at Michigan State and then went on to Douglas J Aveda Institute to earn my cosmetology license. I stayed on to work for Douglas J Aveda for 10 years, both teaching and performing services, and eventually managing the flagship school in East Lansing. I was able to help many students achieve their goals, as well as learn from industry icon such as David Adams, Lupe Voss and Jon Reyman.
Although my time in education was invaluable, I came to realize my dream was to become a salon owner and when the opportunity presented itself in beautiful Grand Haven, I took a leap of faith. I am excited to fulfill my dream serving the West Michigan community everyday, meeting new people and helping them to look and feel their best.
I am humbled and appreciative of all of the support the community has offered, and I look forward to a long and rewarding endeavor doing what I love at Salon West.
