Francie Sorem 619-218-1885
Francie has been a part of this industry for more then 40 years, She has worked as an educator for much of that time, so opening a studio that carried a commitment to excellence was a natural progression. Surrounding herself with a staff of stylists, who also ascribe to becoming stronger and more knowledgable about the haircare industry ,has created an environment where everyone is continually learning and sharing the latest techniques and concepts of hair design.
"Our Studio is a speakeasy like atmosphere with no name outside our door, nor easy way to find us." We do not advertise and we enjoy the fact that all our business comes from referrals . We depend on the clients that we cultivate by hard work and personal attention to tell others about our commitment to excellence so they too become our clients. It is the highest compliment to have a client have the confidence in you to send a friend to your business. Everyone who works in our studio starts out as an assistant and dedicates their time and energy to bring to the Final Cut their strengths, and to benefit from the strengths of others as well. "It is a very unique environment and I am honored to work with such committed professionals."
Kathleen Connolly 617-905-8105
Kathleen started at Final Cut as a client of Francie's. she had always struggled with her hair finding it unruly and unbehaving. Inspired by the process of hair designing she decided to go back to school and master the art of hair designing. Armed with a degree in Psychology and a career in the restaurant industry she was able to bring those people skills to her new profession making the transition an easy one.
Most recently she completed a rigorous training format to become an educational artist for Redken. Her comprehension of the rules of color have not only made her a great teacher who shares her knowledge with others but also a whiz at color corrections.
Kathleens passion and love for what she does has made her into a valuable asset to our Studio, always willing to help each client to really find the look that speaks to them.
Jamie Young 410-212-3243
Jamie started out as an assistant in our Studio, but then decided to go to work at a very prestigious salon in San Diego. There she honed her skills and strong commitment to customer service. She missed the atmosphere of a salon that supports individual growth but still keeps a cohesive team environment and returned to The Final Cut after a few years.
Her eye for styling and intuition for cutting hair to suit the needs of each person who sits in her chair is something that she has developed throughout her career. She is very attentive in her consultation and works hard to achieve the result agreed upon.
She continues to cater to a clientele with great color and cutting techniques always making her clients feel appreciated and valued.

And her love of color is driving her to learn everything she can about it from the wealth of knowledge available. She has tried many colors on her own hair and is always experimenting with combinations of pastels and brights.
Hair color has become her passion and she loves to help people to find a color that speaks to them and their needs. Her honest and logical way of looking at each individual gives her clients an open forum to really analyze and develop a plan for this hair accessory.
