Amy Van Der Vyver, originally from South Africa knew from a young age that she wanted to be a cosmetologist. As a child she would set up a makeshift "salon" in her living room and force family members into being her "clients" she would give all her school friends haircuts and looked up too an older cousin who was in the beauty industry. Amy has always had a sincere love for people, art and making things beautiful. In 2006 she moved to the US, Rochester NY and persevered through adversity to obtain her cosmetology license. Moving to a new country, Amy was faced with many obstacles, but that did not stop her. With determination and hard work Amy gained skills and experience in a full service salon which included body waxing, lash extensions, nails and hair. Amy quickly discovered that her passion is hair, especially color. She enjoys the endless possibilities of creating colorful masterpieces. Amy loves getting to know every guest's story and making those who sit in her chair feel like the best version of themselves. As the Creative Director of HUE Salons, Amy continues to inspire the Artistic Team.
