BethClark

Hello, my name is Beth Clark, owner and operator of Tonique’s Trilogy. I feel that hair is powerful and truly transformative and I am very passionate about my work and the industry. I graduated Morgantown Beauty College in 2000 and soon after started as a stylist at Tonique’s Trilogy. In March of 2013 I assumed ownership of the salon and am thrilled to be leading this talented group of stylists. I am personally focused on hair color and cutting and love bringing my creativity to hair designs. In 2002 I was awarded second place in the national Wella Color Touch Makeover contest. I have studied advanced color techniques from the nation’s top colorists at Color America in Chicago. I have also studied under celebrity hair colorist Beth Minardi at Minardi Beauty Focus in New York City. Recently I attended training under the renowned Nick Arrojo to learn his signature razor-cutting techniques and have been enjoying the freedom and versatility that this particular razor brings to my hairdressing designs. I am currently in the process of becoming a certified Goldwell Master Colorist which requires completion of four separate courses at the Goldwell Academy in NYC. I am also certified in the KMS IQ Cutting Method. I love utilizing this fresh approach to haircutting and consistently use the techniques in my cutting. I have attended several other shows and classes and enjoy expanding my knowledge of my craft. I focus on providing excellent customer service and strive to create a relaxed yet upbeat aura to the salon. Myself, as well as all of the staff at Tonique’s Trilogy, look forward to providing you with a superior salon experience. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns that you may have.


JohnDean

Hello ladies and gentlemen and thank you for taking the time to read my bio. Please allow me to introduce myself, my name is John Robert Dean, but I am known as J.R. I have been a member of the Tonique’s Trilogy team since January 2001. During my training I acquired a great amount of knowledge in the art of hair design. In continuing my education I’ve had the pleasure of watching and learning from some of the industry’s top stylists such as Robert Cromeans, Tabatha Coffey, Nick Arrojo, and Beth Minardi as well as many others. I am working on completing Goldwell’s Master Colorist program and am currently a certified Goldwell Master Colorist Specialist. I recently became certified under the KMS IQ Cutting Method, which involved 3 days of training. Under this method of cutting I am able to approach my hair cuts differently and have been loving the results that I am creating. I have also attended several hair shows and local continuing education classes such as the International Beauty Show in New York City and have also attended several other classes from some of the top beauty companies such as Wella, Matrix, Paul Mitchell, Redken, and TIGI. All of these things have helped me to obtain the title of master stylist and colorist. My vast knowledge in cutting, styling, color and color correction have helped me earn a great reputation and obtain a large and loyal clientele. I am certified in many types of smoothing and relaxing techniques for hair such as Keratin Complex Treatment and chemical straighteners. I also have experience in extension and wig work and have participated in the “Look Good Feel Better” program sponsored by the American Cancer Society .I enjoy doing make-up and special occasion hair and welcome any brideto-be to see me for a consultation to enhance their special day. I must say that I feel truly blessed to be part of such an amazing team of stylists and thankful to have such an amazing group of friends to work with every day that are more like family. In closing, I recall while in beauty school an instructor told me “When you feel you have learned all there is to learn about hair, put your shears down because you are finished, because the hair industry is changing every day.” My shears are still in my hand and I’m always learning something new every day. I welcome you to have a seat in my chair and allow me the opportunity to show you what a lot of hard work and lots of education has allowed me to achieve. Again, thank you, and I hope to meet you soon!
