Andrea Cwynar (Owner & Master Stylist Specializing in Cutting) took an interest in visual arts at a very early age. In 1991 she began an extensive apprenticeship with a group of formally trained Sassoon based stylists. This led her on a path to various Vidal Sassoon Academies in the US and UK mastering the art of precision haircutting. Two years after becoming a stylist at Jungle Red, she and Scott Mishina took the plunge, and became owners. Together, they formed an amazing partnership, and put into place a culture that would surpass their original expectations of ownership. Last year, after fourteen years of partnering with Scott, Andrea became the sole proprietor of Jungle Red.
As a seasoned stylist offering a range in expertise, she believes in consistent dedication, education and inspiration, and continues to work side by side with her staff to create only the highest standard of haircare available.
