Ellery Mustoe began as a hair designer at Defining Image in 2001 and now is co-owner of the salon.  While training as a stylist he made a point to enrich his technical skills through multiple outside courses in cutting and color.  This gave him a “head start” when he began his career as a stylist.  Along this personal path toward higher and higher levels of competence, he received certification through National Goldwell Color Alliance Program, KMS Foundations Haircutting, and as a Master Colorist in 2003.  Keeping his training up to date, through ongoing advanced cut, color and styling classes with award-winning stylists, and paying attention to current fashion, he specializes in advanced cutting and coloring.

Ellery focuses on the importance of the consultation between himself and his clients.  He uses this opportunity to draw out what his client actually likes about the styles they are requesting.  He gives concrete suggestions about different options that will work for them personally in achieving what they want.   Marshaling these communication and technical skills, he aims for his clients to feel relaxed and have a sense of being in competent hands at Defining Image Salon.
