Natasha Vranic | Founder
Tash $$$ aka Natasha Vranic is a hairdresser extraordinaire, co-founder of Craft Salon, and proud owner of the 10 (hopefully) coolest fingernails you’ll ever see. After nine years behind the chair, and educating with Paul Mitchell, she has finally made her dream a reality and co-founded a salon that reflects her standard in the industry. Seriously gifted, with an eye for the strange and unusual, Natasha is particularly skillful with upstyles with a vintage flair, dynamic/bright hair color, balayage, short pixie cuts and personalized haircutting. The only thing that can outshine Natasha’s talent is her personality, because you will always leave her chair as her friend. Where is Natasha outside of the salon? Traveling the country, having adventures with friends and singing songs to her little black cat Lucipurr.
