Wade started his career as a teenager cutting friends hair in the family garage. His passion for art and people led him to learn the craft of hair design. He attended and won awards at the Aveda Institute in St.Petersburg Florida. After stints in several of the Aveda Advanced Academies (Miami, New York, Toronto as well as Institutes in Tampa and Orlando) and training with Masters in the industry such as David Adams, Ricardo Dinis, Jon Reyman, Gerard Scarpacie, and Allen Ruiz, Wade settled in Sarasota, Florida. This is where he worked alongside Scott Thomas at Scott Thomas Salon and Spa. With Scott’s mentorship and strong educational background, Wade was inspired to make teaching and mentoring part of his mission. Wade moved to the Naples / Bonita area in 2007. In that time period he developed a training program and created a very busy clientele. Wade brings an artistic approach to every guest. He is extensively trained and has trained others in haircutting and color. Whether it be a textured creation or one of a kind masterful precision, Wade will work hard to create the perfect shape and color for you.
