My name is Hannah Van Fossen. I’m originally from the Quad Cities, but started my education in Iowa City at Kirkwood Community College. It was important for me to get a traditional degree first, but I always knew my end game was going to beauty school.
I started my journey at La James International College getting my license in Cosmetology. While at La James, I started to explore the spa aspect of cosmetology and discovered it was a real passion of mine. So of course I decided to continue my education after cosmetology school, and I went to the Aveda Institute for Esthetics.
I thoroughly enjoy doing everything that I was trained to do from haircuts, to wedding parties, to of course my blond bombshells. Mastering every aspect and every technique to deliver an experience and result perfect for my guests has always been my goal. I'm proud of my education, and I'm proud to educate my guests on the best products, best tips and tricks, and revolutionary color techniques just for them.
I began my salon experience at an Aveda salon where I worked for 4 years, and learned the ins and outs of the industry. I quickly became a master stylist and educator at that salon, and after a few years, I decided it was time and that I was ready to take a huge leap forward.
Which brings me here; to Color Me Blond studio!
I've learned there are many moving parts to running the show alone, but it is so rewarding and well worth it at the end of every day! I love how different the experience is for my guests. It feels like I’m hanging with friends and family all day doing their hair!
Being a small business owner was the best choice I could have ever made. I am so grateful that I get to do what I do!
