joanneJoanne – Artistic Director and Colorist
Joanne’s career started in ¬†1980. Throughout the years, she has worked with many great stylists and has seen many trends in hair. When she moved to Texas in 1989, the spiral perm was on the way out and Joanne realized that clients wanted to look like the stars. It wasn’t about the cuts as much as the many uses of colors. While in Texas, she worked as an educator with Sebastian. Over the years, Joanne found that the key to client satisfaction was education: hair shows, seminars, hands-on classes, anything to become the best colorist possible. In 1999, she and George returned to the Poconos where they continued their careers before opening the studio.

She believes in personalizing each client’s cut and color to suit the individual hair type, facial shape, lifestyle and desire. She likes to initiate changes to keep each client looking forward to the next visit.

Her education includes: Color & Texture with Beth and Carmine Minardi, Redken Advanced Color, Color and Cutting with The Doves, Nick Arrojo, IBS NY, Martin Parsons International Beauty Show , New York, Vidal Sasson, Pivot Point and Sessions Styling with David Glover. Colors worked with include: Matrix, L’oreal, Goldwell, Wella, Clairol, Logistics, Schwartzkopf, Framezi, and Redken to name a few. Certified in Brazilian Keratin Treatment

gj1First, we would like to explain who Adam Mitchell is. We wanted to give our salon a special name, so we named it after our sons Adam and Mitchell.

The Adam Mitchell Color Studio started because of our passion for healthy, beautiful hair color. Being hairstylists for many years and seeing how unpredictable hair coloring can be, we decided to address the factors that could cause unfavorable variations in results, such as the use of well water in shampooing, use of home hair colors, and lack of knowledge or sincerity in what their previous stylist had done. We knew this could be achieved by acquiring education from the top specialists in our industry in the country.

Both men and women are changing their looks more often than in the past, and this includes hair coloring. Unfortunately, doing this too often can cause damage. Hair coloring is fantastic, but not when the result is damaged and unprofessional looking.
We knew we wanted to be able to put our clients into the capable hands of a team of stylists that are the best colorists in the area. We all receive the most advanced and continuous training in expert cutting, texture services and formal styling.
