Tammie Scarborough

Studio Owner and Hairdresser

Colour specialist for TiGi Colour, Tammie has worked side by side with world renowned hairdressers for years. Working for such a great company like TiGi has helped Tammie become an extremely passionate and an unstoppable hairdresser. Tammie says, "The thing I love most about being a hairdresser is the power to make some ones day. To watch a woman come in after a tough week, spend an hour or so with them just listening. Then pamper them, make them feel beautiful and watch them leave strutting the whole way out the door. That's why I do what I do!" "Having Style DiVita Hair Salon is like a dream come true", says Tammie - studio owner. "I always knew I would have something that would change lives. I know, you're thinking - how can a hair studio change lives? Have you ever had a make-over? These team is here because they love what they do. They are not here just to have a job. Style DiVita means lifestyle in Italian. Beauty is not just on the outside, it's a way of life.

Dave Sheldon

Hair Stylist

I graduated from the Ohio Vanity School of Cosmetology in 2009. For the last 6 years I gained my experience working at an all exclusive Paul Mitchell salon. I love taking on the newest hair trends in men and women's haircuts and color. While enjoying the artistic side of doing hair and seeing the endless possibilities of what can be done. Everyone's hair is my canvas. Just recently moving to the Outer Banks. I spend all my time playing golf. Taking on fresh and new obstacles. In 2017, I became certified in TIGI Creative Colour and Brazilian Blowouts. I very much look forward to meeting you.

Jackie Smithwick

Hair Stylist

I am a Mommy of two sweet little boys, and a wife to a man who deserves the world. I’m very laid back and owe all my joy to the man upstairs. I’m silly and love to laugh. I became a hair stylist in 2011, and have been continuing education ever since. New York is my happy place, always bringing new trends to our island. The best part about being a stylist isn’t the hair itself.. to me, it’s more about how it adds positive feelings to someone’s heart. I grew up working in Missions under my parents who have been pastors for 40 years. People are my passion. So for me, being a hair stylist is a win/win. I can touch someone’s heart and work my art through hair at the same time. Certifications & Achievements •2017 creative cut and color training at the TIGI Academy NYC •Womanless Beauty Pageant Event •Brazilian Blowout certified
