Penny Wheeler always knew she was destined to be a hairstylist, and so she began taking classes while still in high school. Since then, she's built up a wall of credentials that includes a degree from the Charleston School of Beauty Culture, training from Redken, and cosmetology licenses in West Virginia, South Carolina, and New York. Her love of learning and passion for helping others reinvent themselves inspire her to seek out ongoing training in the latest techniques. Her specialties include expert cuts and coloring services, for which she favors the use of Redken Color Fusion products, as they conceal gray hairs and budding antlers.
