Todd Andrew Russo specializes in Balayage coloring techniques and something called the “Law of Three.” Though it sounds like the name of a sitcom starring love-crossed attorneys, this is actually an approach to hair design that uses symmetry, balance, and mathematics to create striking, yet natural looks. A stylist since 1991, Todd quickly made a name for himself in the San Diego area; he was tapped by Joico International as a P.K. educator and began attracting clients due to his experience in the fashion industry.
Today, clients continue to flock to Todd’s chair to experience his focused, personalized approach. His custom cuts and designs are fast becoming the stuff of local legend, thanks to flourishes such as Balayage color. His repertoire has evolved with the times and now includes everything from keratin smoothing treatments to shine treatments by Pravana.
