WHITNEY SCHAAF | Stylist
whitney schaaf | stylist
Whitney Schaaf knew she wanted to style hair from day one. For as long as she can remember, she was constantly styling anyone’s hair that she could get her hands on. At the age of 18 she started hair school in Madison, Wisconsin and a few weeks later, had a chance to move to New York City and jumped on it. After graduating cosmetology school she immediately began working with Sally Hershberger at her Downtown salon.
She credits her cutting and styling skills to Sally Hershberger and Mary Brunetti, as they worked closely with her to refine her talents. Whitney’s favorite cuts are long, streamlined layers that create movable, bouncy hair. She also favors Keratin treatments and performs many in the salon.
Working at Sally Hershberger Downtown has given her many opportunities to build her career. She recently worked backstage during Spring 2013’s New York Fashion Week shows including Naeem Khan and Dannijo and has also assisted in shoots for WWD, Women’s Health and Tracy Anderson.
