Holly Woolverton-Whatcott, Hair Stylist/Makeup Artist
Durango, Colorado  |  (970) 799-1517

My name is Holly Woolverton-Whatcott, founder and former owner of Hair Fusion, Durango. After more than 15 years at the helm of the salon, I sold the business and returned to my passion behind the chair as an Independent  Cosmetologist, Barber, Credentialed Instructor and School Agent. I’m happy to still call Hair Fusion my home, but in a capacity that feeds and best utilizes my creative talents. I’ve been blessed to be a hair and makeup artist for more than 20 years. I believe strongly in continued education, training with Yoshi Hagiwara, one of the most sought out hairdressers in Beverly Hills.

My pursuit of knowledge and skills has taken me across the country, from LA to Nashville and several cities in between.

I am a National Educator for Paul Mitchell and have had the pleasure of working with industry greats including Stephanie Kocielski, Robert & Mary Cromeans, Angus Mitchell, Donna Mizell,  John Mosley and Joey Romero. My years of experience, continued education and artistic techniques have afforded me the ability to create endless different looks. I believe everyone is beautiful and I enjoy cultivating that beauty in each of my clients. I was told at a young age to do what I LOVE and success and happiness will follow. This is exactly what I’ve done!
