Susan S. Rodriguez

Salon Owner, Master Colorist/Stylist

 

“The thing I love most about my job is that I get to make people feel good about themselves”

A professional since 1991, Susan has accrued an abundance of hair styling knowledge and experience over her twenty-two year career. As owner of Salon 1018 she sets the tone for the salons style and creative direction. A veteran stylist, her passion for the industry has grown as well as her desire for continuing education. Susan’s artistic approach on hairdressing has come from an array of training she has undergone. Aveda, Bumble & Bumble, and Framesi are just a part of the extensive training she has received throughout her profession.  Susan credits her mastery of hair color to her seven years working at one of Austin’s “Best of’ Aveda salons. The intense Aveda color education has made her a strong colorist. That, along with advanced cutting techniques have contributed to perfecting her craft. She believes that no matter how long you have been in this ever-changing industry, there is always something new to learn. After years of working in salons that were active in photo shoots and fashion shows in Memphis and in Austin, she decided to bring her talent to Bastrop. Susan’s extreme attention to detail coupled with her extensive knowledge makes sitting in her chair a stress free experience.  

As a Christian , faith is vital to her life, she resides with her husband, Steve and her three horses, two dogs and one cat. Yes! She is an animal lover and advocate!
