Currently a Senior level stylist and I have been with Dolce Lusso since 2013. I am passionate about my work and continue to educate myself in advanced color and hair design within Aveda and outside. My specialty is haircutting for men and women, and look forward to a client wanting change or just be heard. And love what hair painting or fresh highlights can do to transform a drab style!

I am a down to earth Northerner who loves the outdoors and adventures. My true passions are hiking, camping and spending time on trails with my dog, “D.” If you can’t find me in the salon with my guests, I am probably working on house projects or finding my next adventure in the mountains.

Feel free to check out my work on my Instagram j.stullerdesigns. I look forward to our future consultation.

Aveda Color Purefessional

Education & Experience
I have been doing hair since 2004 and have been with Aveda the majority of that time. I am an Aveda Color Purefessional. I have been teaching classes for Aveda and Dolce Lusso since 2009. I love all aspects of doing hair. Color is my passion but there is nothing better than customizing a color to match a new cut! Whether it’s a great chocolate brown, the perfect blonde, or you want to discuss what would be best for your skin/eye color, I love it all!

Interests and About Me
I have two young boys that keep me busy and on my toes! I love spending time with them and my extended family. We love the beach and traveling to new places and having adventures together. I also try and find time to read and have the lofty goal of reading one book per month.

Favorite product:
After being in an Aveda salon for 15 years, I can’t just pick one product I love. Sorry not sorry! I love volumizing tonic for lift, volume, and hold. I love air control hairspray for the firm hold but without the stiffness of many other hairsprays. Lastly, I love smooth Infusion line because it helps with our “southern humidity” without weighing down the hair.

Hi y’all! I’m Bethany Tucker a Stylist/Makeup artist at Baxter/Kingsley.

My love for hair started in high school when I was in color guard, and continued to thrived while I attended Paul Mitchell the School Columbia in 2016.

I love every aspect of hair but what stands out the most to me are fashion colors and men’s cuts. They’re my favorite because of how unique and exciting the colors of the rainbow can be, and I just love how clean and crisp men’s cuts are.

I’ve also really enjoyed working fashion shows, doing hair for the TopCats, and wedding/special event hair styling.

Some of my favorite Aveda products are Air Control hairspray, Pure Abundance Style-Prep and Shampure Dry Shampoo. All of which are multifunctional and great for all styles from beginning to end.

A fun fact about me is that when I’m not behind the chair making my guests as beautiful on the outside as they are on the inside, I’m often fueling my passion for cooking and trying new recipes!

A really neat hair trend that is timeless and extremely versatile is braiding. A braid can either be a base for an updo or the star of the show.
