Hi! My name is Courtney

I am a woman with big dreams and a big heart. I became a hairstylist in 2007 after attending college for two years. Unsatisfied with where that path was taking me, and knowing I had always had the desire to do hair; I began cosmetology school with the support of my family. Graduating from the New England School of Hairdressing and working in a few salons, until I found my home at BriAry Hair Studio in 2010. I worked for two beautiful, strong women until 2018. Then I became a business owner. I have a quaint salon suite in Newington, Ct that I absolutely adore.

In the last couple of years, I have made enormous achievements both professionally and personally. In 2017, I was inducted into The Unicorn Tribe family. We are a collective of many types of artists. We support one another not only professionally but personally as well. You will learn that family is everything to me. I treat everyone like family. However, 2017 was a big year for me because I also married my best friend. Since then I went on to create Chic Scissors Hair and having my first child. My son was born May 2019, which made my Best of Newington 2019 business award all that more special. Having the honor to receive such an award knowing that I had briefly stepped away from my chair for maternity leave, means my hard work shows. This means I am setting the right examples for my son. I am honored to say that I have grown as a professional stylist. I continue to be compelled by my craft each and everyday. My passion for the industry hasn’t changed at all after all these years! I continue to push myself to new levels. I thrive on learning new things.

Continuing education and constantly keeping up to date on the latest styles and trends is very important to me. I have attended many specialty classes on topics such as: color, cutting, updo's, make-up, etc. I have also attended many hair shows and workshops throughout the years. I am a featured artist as well. You may have seen my work on instagram pages like @NothingbutPixies, @theunicorntribe, @pixiechatpix, etc.

 I specialize in fashion colors and hair painting techniques.
In addition to these specialties, I have mastered the art of special occasion hair. My Clients say "She makes your vision come to life".
