About Tracy

 

After graduating from the University of Connecticut’s Business School in 2008 and falling into Corporate America, it only took Tracy a year and a half to realize she was not fulfilling her passion in her career. She always had the desire to become a Hairstylist, but was under the impression that college was the only way to go. Happiness in her career was her priority, so she decided to follow her real dream of doing what she loves and almost immediately decided to enroll in Cosmetology School at The European Academy of Cosmetology & Hairdressing in Guilford, CT. The foundation of her education was a very systematic approach through TIGI and Tony & Guy principles. Tracy landed a rigorous training program a month after graduating in April 2011 at an Intercoiffure salon in Madison, CT where she built a loyal clientele of over 6 years as a Stylist.

In May of 2017, Tracy was ready to take her career to the next level by becoming independent and running her own business behind the chair. “Hair by Tracy Lynn” was her startup business name, which is the “HTL” in HTL Styling. This is where she began to expand her focus to hair extension services by creating jaw-dropping transformations for her clients with thinning hair and truly tapping into her enthusiasm as a Stylist. Wearing hair extensions herself for 10+ years, this couldn’t have been more exciting for her, to be able to finally be the one to give someone the hair they could never grow on their own.

Tracy is continually advancing her education and credentials to be able to offer coloring and extension methods that are trending and most importantly, safe. She was part of a year-long Mastermind program for Natural Beaded Rows™ hair extensions in 2018 and has obtained her Level 3 Certification to become as well-trained in the method as possible. With weekly online training and multiple flights out to California for continued support with NBR coaches as well as the creator herself, Danielle K. White, Tracy’s clients can rest assured they are in good hands. She is now also certified in SKW™ extensions, created by Sarah K. Wilks, which is an alternate hand-tied extension method. Tracy believes in versatility and that one size does not fit all, so offering another method of hair extensions using hand-tied hair has allowed her to be able to work with a broader range of hair types. Tracy exclusively works with hand-tied extension methods because of the minimal points of contact to the scalp, least damage, there is no tape or glue, and the extensions are virtually undetectable and most natural looking. Aside from extensions, Tracy specializes in dimensional color using a variety of techniques, including balayage, foilage, traditional foils and various hand-painting methods.

If you decide to sit in Tracy’s chair, you might find yourself laughing, talking about food, your pets, or your latest Netflix binge. You might even find yourself falling asleep while she’s doing your hair. A visit with Tracy is a time to relax, take in the good vibes, and fall in love with your hair again!

Tracy is always keeping up on her education for color and hair extension classes and it shows in her work! She is extremely meticulous and creative and consistently delivers at every single appointment. I always feel heard when I want to change something up, and Tracy never hesitates to give her professional opinion or offer me a new look, which I love. I've been going to Tracy for over 6 years now and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a Stylist with integrity and passion!!

There is NO ONE I would trust & go to other than Tracy! She is quite simply the BEST at what she does! A true artist in her craft, wildly talented, and the most FUN to hang out with while you’re sitting in her chair. I have been going to her for YEARS for color and keratin (love!), now consider her a true friend for life, and would follow her anywhere! I cannot recommend her ENOUGH!! ❤️

Tracy did a wonderful job on my maintenance tighten using a hand tied method. She is trained and certified in multiple methods which is incredible because she can customize and adjust what will work best with your hair type. I, myself am a hair extension stylist so I can determine what is great work and what is not, and she is by far amazing at what she does!

TRACY IS #1! I have known Tracy for years, and she is still the only person I let touch my hair. I come all the way from VERMONT a few times a year because she is so good. I don’t like to go crazy with color or cut, and Tracy gets it right every single time. She listens, plans, checks in, and always makes me laugh while she does my hair!! We have a blast every time that sometimes I forget I’m at a hair appointment. Her coloring skills are precise and it’s obvious that she has been doing this for a while. She takes so much care in how the color lies in your hair and what the finished product looks like. I can’t say enough. I am always beyond satisfied when I leave her chair, and can’t wait for my next appointment! I am grateful for Tracy!!

I don’t even know where to begin. Tracy is such an amazing hair dresser as well as an amazing person! Her personality is infectious and our appointments always fly by! I came to her for a corrective color, my blonde was so yellow and washed out looking. She totally saved me and got me ready for my extensions. My extensions totally blew my expectations out of the water! They were absolutely beautiful and blended with my own hair flawless. Fast forward a year later and we both agreed it was best for the integrity of my hair (my own hair )to bring me back to brunette. Well that turned out to be the best decision and she took me from a bleach blonde to an amazing brunette in one day. I look forward to every appointment with her! She is fun and full of knowledge. She knows her stuff and always has the clients best interest at mind. My hair has never looked better!!!

Tracy is the absolute best. Tracy has been cutting my hair for a few years now, but recently I have decided to go gray; this has been quite the undertaking as I have been using black box dye for years. Working with Tracy has been amazing. She has listened to what I wanted and came up with a plan to get me there while still maintaining the integrity of my hair. She is very passionate about what she does and goes above and beyond to make sure my hair not only looks great but is healthy too. Would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a colorist/stylist.

I started to see Tracy after a horrible experience that left my hair streaky and in bad shape. Now, I wouldn’t trust anyone else to touch my hair. She brought my hair back to life and gave me the color and style that I wanted. She is a great colorist and really listened to how I wanted my hair to look. My highlights look very natural and I get compliments all the time and everyone is shocked that I color my hair. I can honestly say that my hair has never looked and felt so good. Plus, Tracy is very personable and fun to be around.

Love love love my NBR extensions!! Tracy is a miracle worker! I was incredibly insecure after my hair was damaged from a previous stylist. Tracy provides a judgment free zone and genuinely wants to help boost your self confidence. I appreciate her knowledge and motivation for continued education to master her specialty. Im going into my second round of extensions this week!

Tracy is awesome and talented! I have had my hand-tied hair extensions in now for about 8 months and am obsessed! They are undetectable and I get so many compliments on my hair now! Even on a windy day I don’t have to worry about anyone being able to tell I have extensions! And super easy maintenance also! It’s always a fun time seeing Tracy for my hair!

HTL STYLING AND EXTENSIONS is amazing! Tracy is experienced, friendly and professional. I’ve had hair extensions for over a year and they are beautiful and look natural. There has been no damage to my natural hair. I suffer from migraines and they are painless and easy to maintain at home without discomfort. I love the color and length. People can’t tell I have hair extensions and I am always complimented on how beautiful my hair is.
