About HairHobo

Hi ,I'm Sam and I'm a hair color addict. I'm originally from Southern California but I am currently living in Northern New York. I fell in love with color on accident. I was in school and realized it terrified me so I made the conscious decision to learn everything I could before school was out. Turns out that fear created an obsession! I chose the stage name HairHobo because it represents my love for travel and the fact that I am completely obsessed with my job.

When I'm not creating electric locks with some bold babes, you can find me coaching, teaching, and guiding other beauty professionals on their hair journey @ElectricHairSociety. On days when I'm not working in or on my businesses, you can find me on travel adventures and enjoying a simple life with my husband and my puppy Bowser.

If your looking for a bold, electric transformation, I'd love to have you. Thanks for considering me to be your stylist, I look forward to having you.

What is a Hobo?

A traveling worker
who is more than willing to work, as their main purpose is to travel.

New Guests

Seeing a new stylist is scary, even for me and I'm a stylist! That's why I created a system to simplify and walk you through exactly what to expect when it comes to booking our first date together. You will find everything you need to know about what to book, how to book, and what my pricing system is. Lets get started with everyones favorite, pricing.

  • Pricing:

    In order for every service to be priced fair for all parties, all color prices are base prices. This means that the starting price is the same for everyone. However, the price increases depending on the amount of product used in order to achieve your goal. Longer, thicker, and brighter hair all require excess product. Each service will include a listed amount of color bowls and all additional bowls of color/ lightener are $15/ bowl. A haircut, blow out, and style are included in ALL color services. Below you will find a list of the services offered for New Guests along with a description and the starting price for that service.

  • What to Book:

    Our first date is special, this is where we get to know each other and I get to learn about your hair. I have created 4 categories of hair color to choose from making it easy for you to choose the one that best describes you and your hair goals.

All Over Color

Starting at $125

This block of time is for babes who are seeking to maintain their current color. This service is best for grey coverage or electric babes looking for a rainbow color refresh (no lightening, just color refresh.) This service also includes a treatment. If you are looking to cover grey and add lightness to your hair please book Balayage and add on the Grey Coverage service.

Balayage

Starting at $150

This block of time is for babes looking to add lightness to their hair while still maintaining a natural grow out. This service is a packaged deal for first time guests and includes 2 bowls of color or lightener, haircut, and treatment. If you are looking to cover grey hair, please add on the Grey Coverage service as well.

Balayage + Rainbow Hair Color

Starting at $175

This service is for bold babes looking to make a statement! Rainbow colors are bright and bold and in order to achieve this look, lightening is necessary. This packaged deal includes 2 bowls of color or lightener, haircut, and mini take home color refresher. If you are a new client and currently do not need to lighten and just need rainbow colors refreshed, please book All Over Color and make note that you will be receiving rainbow colors instead.

Corrective Color

Hourly @ $70/hour

This service is for babes who need a color make over! If you currently have box color (even Sally/s) or had an indifferent experience with another stylist, have bold chunks of color that needs blending, or damaged hair, lots of TLC is needed. This service is rated hourly @$70/hour and includes a haircut, treatment, ALL product and technique applications necessary for a more wearable color. Please note a color correction on average are a minimum of 4 hours and can take up to 8+ hours or more depending on the situation.
