Stella is an international earthling. She is a lover of all good things, a stylish nerd who is young at heart, unflappable, and most importantly, a free spirit. In Stella’s mind, STYLE is more important than fashion. Trends come and go…STYLE is timeless.


As a young hairdresser Stella Hay started her career in a European salon where she studied with her mentor for one and a half years training the Sassoon way. During her apprenticeship Stella traveled solo to NYC to seek inspiration at the International Beauty Show. Upon completion of her apprenticeship she worked on many photo shoots in which her work was submitted and published in hair magazines including Modern Salon. Throughout her career Stella has won awards for her excellence in her craft, including Best Hairdresser in Houston, TX. At the beginning of Stella’s career, she was much involved in the hair, music and fashion scene in Austin, TX. She was also known as hairdresser to local musicians and immersed in the creative community.

At the peak of her career, Stella married a musician and took a hiatus from hairdressing to start a family. She raised her child in beautiful Boulder, Colorado.

Since her break from the hair industry, Stella is back in action and continues to seek inspiration from her heros at the renowned Sassoon Academy.  In 2015 Stella traveled to San Francisco and attended a 5 day intensive course at the Sassoon Academy. In 2016 she entered a competition and won 3rd place out of thousands by submitting a video that was a homage to the godfather of hairdressing himself, Vidal Sassoon. Stella has been certified by attending two 5 day courses at the Sassoon Academy in San Francisco and again in 2017 at the Sassoon Academy in Los Angeles in which she attended on a full ride scholarship.

Working in an environment of creative souls and ongoing education has been stellar at voodoo. Playing with high end  products like Wella color line, Kevin Murphy and Unite has been an  amazing opportunity and learning experience. Behind the chair, Stella enjoys her craft and working with awesome people in Colorado. She and her family live a bohemian lifestyle in Boulder and when not in the mountains, they travel to the pacific ocean or to a rock show.
