Hi Guys! I'm Whitney. The Owner of The Hair Haus. I have honestly been obsessed with EVERYTHING beauty related since I was a young grasshopper. But... you hear that from everyone in this industry. So let me tell you what you should know about me, versus what you already know. I grew up right here in good old North Port, FL. Yes, I was here before all of the developing. When fun was known as, "Hey. Let's go sit in the Port Charlotte Walmart parking lot and hang out.". And a typical Friday night was spent at the Mall. Which is now going to be an Amazon shipping center? Yikesssss. So, yeah. I've been here since the beginning, and have seen this area DRASTICALLY change for the better over the years. But you know what's stayed the same? The Salons. I used to drive an HOUR to work every day for 4 years because I could not find a luxury Salon I wanted to work in, in the area. Well, 2020 hit. I moved back down to the PC area, to my own Salon Suite for a year. And I decided, "Yup. It's friggin' time.". From there, I made it my mission to bring a Luxury Salon down to the area that I know and love. So, happen it did. May 1st, 2021, The Hair Haus was open for business. And I am so happy it is. Like I said before, I have been obsessed with everything beauty (but most importantly hair related) since a very young age. To now be able to give back to my community in a way of; training hairstylists in the area to be the best they can be, providing hairstylists with an amazing work atmosphere, and giving guests the best service they can ever receive, is a dream come true for me. Hopefully The Hair Haus is a dream come true for you too! No matter if you're a Stylists or guest, cant wait to see you in the Haus!

Hi! I'm Andrea. My love for hair and makeup started at a young age when I would prefer to go to the salon with my mom, who is also a hairstylist, instead of staying with a babysitter. I’ve been a licensed cosmetologist since 2013. I love everything about this industry, but especially love that it’s always changing and that I’m always learning and getting to create amazing looks. I love learning and trying new things whether that be something in the hair industry or outside of the industry. I enjoy looking at the positive side of things instead of the negatives. I thoroughly enjoy talking to my clients and getting to know all about them all while making them feel beautiful.

I specialize in highlighting, balayage and corrective color But I consider myself a well rounded stylist who’s always willing to try something new and always up for a challenge.
I’ve known since a very young age that I wanted to be a hair stylist. I used to hang out with my grandmother in her salon and seeing the joy on her clients faces always made me want to follow in her footsteps. To say hair is my passion is an understatement! I love making people feel and look beautiful!
When I’m not behind the chair I enjoy spending time with my two daughters, Sofia (4) and Olivia (1), and my husband, Frank.
