My name is Anna and I have been in the BEAUTY industry as a cosmetologist for 30+ years and to this day I can still say it's a passion and I LOVE IT.

I know my mother would agree with me that I have known since I was a little girl that I would pursue this path. I spent many days being punished for what I thought at the time to be masterpieces, starting by practicing on my dolls, many of which ended up being bald headed. I then graduated to friends that were willing to be my masterpieces even if it meant bribing them. Having said that, my mother's beauty tools/items were put to test, including her jet black hair color, make-up, and her famous bright red lipstick. There were lots of haircuts with any kind of scissors I could find, even attempting to curl one of my friends/victims with a TONY home perm!!! Needless to say I ended up losing some friendships but not determination!!! Hence the beginning of my true career.

I began my training in England (I am European) with a two-year course by attending a trade school and assisting in a hair salon where I acquired lots of great knowledge which has served me well to this day . I moved to Tampa many years ago and have owned two hair salons before joining Impressions of Dinah Salon four years ago.

I keep current with trends from bridal hair-do's, haircuts and hair color/hi-lights by attending hair shows and taking classes as I believe no matter how long one has been in the field, our industry is always evolving with new trends and styles and it's important to stay up to date. I like every aspect of it but I am very partial to hair color and hi-lights as it truly tests your knowledge and along with a cut and make-up it can truly transform a person!!!

For the BRIDE-to-be and BRIDAL PARTY- I have done many weddings as far as hair & make-up and to me it's all about YOU and making your day special, it is very important for me to have you picture perfect as those moments are captured in memories forever with photos.

The photos that are posted here on my page were all done by me and hopefully give you some insight of my work.
