Patrice Maloney, Stylist
Time flies we hear. Such has been my experience at Larijames. It’s been over 30 years since I joined the group here. I’ve attended numerous classes, in-salon and out (recently Daniel Joseph Muldoon and, shortly, Oscar Bond); professional trade shows (IBS and regional); specialized education events such as training for the Hair Designers Guild testing (where, back in the day, I met Larry).
I feel that the color, haircut design, and permanent waving services I provide are all facets of my artistic foundation. I’ve been a lifelong student of the Arts. When I’m not at the salon, I’m immersed in oil and recently, encaustic painting. Portraiture is my favorite. I’ve trained with Jean Stephens, Kathryn Bevier, Steve Carpenter, and Sari Gaby loyally and attended workshops with internationally known artists such as David Kassan, Jeffrey Hein, Susan Lyons, and Daniel Greene. I’m a member of the Rochester Art Club and the National Portrait Society. My BA is in Fine Arts. This training I feel informs and enhances my hairdressing skills.
