Amber and Shane have known each other professionally since 2006, when Amber began her hairstyling career apprenticing for Shane at his previous salon. After parting ways professionally, they had the opportunity to work together again as peers at a salon in the Riverbend area in 2015. This is where the Water, Steel & Air dream was reborn.
Water, Steel & Air Hair Salon will always be a healthy, safe, fun and creative work environment; one that fosters respect, a mutual exchange of ideas, and allows for professional growth and development.
