Christie Bazemore

Owner/ Master Stylist
@dandelionnashville

Formally trained in the Italian style of cutting, Christie loves to create expressive, textural shapes for soft romantic styles. She equally appreciates technical cutting for more sculpted looks. Rich, multi dimensional color, as well as gray blending are among her favorites behind the chair. After nearly ten years of styling, with two as Artistic Director of Maria Heckscher Salon in Atlanta, Christie was ready to plant her own roots in Nashville. 

"I had the amazing experience of working and traveling with the best in Atlanta... a very special group of people that not only shaped my career, but essentially became my family. When I knew I was ready to embrace my own project, Nashville spoke to me. There are so many exciting things happening here, yet still so much room for creative and independent endeavors. Passion projects, if you will :) Dandelion has given me the opportunity to build a new family that continues to grow and inspire. We strive to keep our workspace fun and engaging for our clients.”
