Meet Sweet V.
Suite V is the expression of Vanessa's personal and professional philosophy.
A Miami-born, second-generation Colombian, Vanessa trained at the Aveda Institute in Florida. After working at Aveda’s South Beach concept salon for two years, she moved to New York in 2008 to work as a stylist throughout Manhattan. Vanessa understands the importance of continued education and prides herself on keeping up with latest in hair trends and techniques.
Since 2014, she scaled her practice back to Brooklyn, a neighborhood she’s proud to call her home.
At the core of Vanessa’s practice are the relationships she has forged with her clients. From editorial inspired up do's to everyday wearable hair, Vanessa works with each client to create a style that caters to their lifestyle. As a native Spanish speaker, she is most comfortable in settings of linguistic diversity, and can do hair in both Spanish and English.
After graduating from Towson University in 2008, Veronica began her career by studying with Paul Mitchell The School. At Parlour Salon in DC, she achieved certifications in the DevaCurl system of curly haircutting and styling. She encourages men and women to embrace the beautiful textures of their hair and view it as an accessory that can be customized. Veronica is most passionate about the connections that she establishes with her clients by always providing a safe space to be vulnerable in their beauty and feel heard.
