BRENDA LUTU CLAYTON

Owner/Stylist

Spanning a 30 year career, I've had the opportunity to explore the USA as well as visit 3 Countries sharing my vast knowledge of the Hair & Beauty industry.
This has led to educating hairstylist about cutting, styling & coloring with some of the top professional beauty brands in the world.
My ability to relate with different aspects of the industry has allowed me to be flexible and gain insight that expands to my clients behind the chair. Seeking out further education for myself and Hair Tactics staff so we can continue to express our unique craft will be focused on to improve our talent.
Working with mass market, one owner and multi-unit salons has allowed me to encompass real world corporations with proven small business strategies. I continue to maintain relationships within the industry who posses big and small business ideas and goals. This allows me to provide my clients with the service and experience they deserve and cherish.

Hi I’m new to Portland having come from Hawaii.  I have been in the industry 18 years, more than half of that involved in education with a heavy back ground from Vidal Sassoon.  I have competed several times nationally and internationally in hair competitions.  I am an international educator having taught in Thailand and Philippines, I have  worked with Models on photo shoots and t.v.  I have also taught in beauty schools and I’m currently a brand educator for Wella.

EMMA

Stylist

Hi, my name is Emma and I’ve been doing hair for 4 years. My favorite services to do in the salon are vivid/fashion colors, highlights and foiling, and long layered haircuts on thick and hard to manage hair. I strive to exceed the expectations of every person that sits in my chair, in order to do that I love to customize each color and cut to suit my clients hair type, face shape, lifestyle, etc. I hope to see you in my chair soon!

MACKENZIE

Admin/Receptionist

Hi all! My name is Mackenzie and I am one of the front desk receptionists here at Hair Tactics. I joined this incredible team in the summer of 2020. 

My previous work experience has been with children ranging from infancy to 17 years. I taught preschool for over a decade and worked with young children with intellectual disabilities, as well as adolescents who were placed in juvenile detention centers. After spending so many wonderful years working with children, I went back to school at Portland State University and graduated with a degree in psychology. 

I have always loved the beauty industry and understand how important it is for individuals to feel their best not only on their outward appearance, but on the inside as well. There is a unique psychological nature when it comes to intertwining beauty and mental health, that most do not realize. It is so much more than just a pair of scissors in one’s hand- there is a component of human interaction, connection and openness, which is rare to find in all industries. 

It’s such a joy to see our clients leave the salon feeling refreshed and glowing after their service. Whether it’s illuminating skin after a facial or a perfectly painted balayage, our highly talented team prides ourselves to deliver top of the line services to each client who walks through our doors! Looking forward to meeting you all!

TIFFANY

Stylist

Hi, my name is Tiffany and I have been in the industry since 2016.

What drives my creativity is making people feel beautiful inside and out.  I love being in an industry where creativity shines and no two looks are ever the same.  Whether it's an edgy, cool new look or something classic and sheik, doing hair has so many different fun avenues to explore. 

As I am expanding and perfecting my hairstyling skills, I love that I get to be a part of the Hair Tactics Team.  Aside from being a hairstylist, I love fitness and am a former NPC competitor.  I am also a mom of a wonderful young lady and we travel as often as possible.

Oregon wine country is another luxury of our beautiful state I utilize often with friends. 

So that's a little history about me.  I look forward to what the future brings as I grow as a hairstylist and entrepreneur in this wonderful industry.
