Andrea Cwynar | Master Stylist and Educator, 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. After seventeen years of ownership, Andrea decided to pass on the torch to a new Young owner, Lucas Ringhofer.
