Suzy Miller

Education Director and Associate Manager
Over 20 years experience in the industry, 25 being here at the Ultima! Over the past 22 years I have grown with the Ultima through in salon training and various training at the Redken exchange, Martin Parsons, Ouidad, RARE NYC, and personally along side of Ruth Roche an industry icon. Percision haircutting and classic looks are my foundation. Throughout the years I find my continued passion in my guests and my continuing education. After traveling across the states working with Ruth and RARE at educational events I became a REDKEN Certified Colorist. Color correction and finding the best suitable color for my client is a passion of mine. Along with my educational background I find listening and collaborating with my guests helps me to achieve the goals that we are seeking. Most recently I became a Ouidad Certified Stylist. I have a great understanding of curly/textured hair and love to see my fellow curly girls proud of their beautiful locks!
