About Saudade Hair Studio

Julie, Tina and April had worked together for over 20 years at Arlene's Salon and Spa. When Arlene announced her retirement in the Summer of 2015, the girls decided to open a salon to keep the family of stylists and clientele together. The name Saudade was chosen, as it represents "the love that remains." Saudade is proud to bring cutting edge, innovative hair care, in addition to manicures, pedicures and facial waxing, to the Mt. Pleasant area. We pride ourselves on not only using the best products available but on teaching you to use them as well! 


Meet the Team:

Julie Gammon, Partner & Stylist

 Julie graduated from Charleston Cosmetology Institute in 1987. She worked at Arlene's Salon and Spa until 2015 then opened Saudade Hair Studio with two partners. Julie worked as a Technical Partner for L'Oreal Professional for five years. She completed Color Keys 1 and 2 at the Soho Institute in New York. She attended courses at Graham Webb Academy and completed her certification for Roy Peters Color Specialist. She also traveled to Paris, France for the World Class Color Symposium. She is certified for Keratin Complex and GK Keratin Smoothing Systems. Julie is also a verified ProFiber consultant. Julie loves this industry and is always striving to further her knowledge. Julie is a managing partner of Saudade Hair Studio.

Tina Naylor, Partner & Stylist
Tina graduated from the Charleston Cosmetology Institute and has been doing hair and nails in the Lowcountry for 26 years. Tina is our resident nail technician, specializing in acrylics, gel wraps, pedicures and waxing, in addition to fantastic color and highlight work. With hundreds of nail colors to choose from, you will never get bored! Tina has three children, which are her world! She is certified in ProFiber treatments and continues her knowledge annually in color and cut techniques. She is a managing partner of Saudade Hair Studio.
April Suggs, Partner & Stylist  April has been transforming hair for nearly 25 years, obtaining her beauty license before graduating from high school. She attended Keroc Vocational School before starting as a booth renter at Arlene's in 1993. She wholeheartedly believes in furthering her education, most recently, becoming a certified ProFiber Consultant. She is also certified in all things GK and GK Keratin Complex. April is our go-to girl for hair extentions as well, using Hot Head, Balmain, Simplicity, Dream Catcher and Hair2Wear. She also has a love for color and highlights and can do traditional, natural color or bring out your inner mermaid! April is a Managing Partner of Saudade Hair Studio.

Paula Hollingsworth, Stylist  Paula has been a cosmetologist for 19 years.  She has a family history in the hair business, and currently works alongside her mother.  Paula's career started when she was a young kid working in her mother's  beauty salon. She loved every aspect of working in a salon and especially loves doing hair.  
Paula is also experienced in skincare, and nails.  Paula specializes in color, highlights, ombré, perms and cutting, as well as Keratin Smoothing treatments.

Rose Elliott, Stylist  Rose went to Cosmetology school way off in a far away land called Flint, Michigan. Land of cold snow, beautiful summers and home of the Great Lakes!  

Rose had a great start in the field of cosmetology working under Judy Stanley who taught her precise hair cutting. Michigan was in a recession and jobs were getting harder to find so she and her family decided to move South. How they ended up in South Carolina was literally by a spin of the globe. Her finger landed on South Carolina. 

After settling in Mt. Pleasant she went to work at a Salon in West Ashley. She worked there for about a year when she saw an ad for a salon for sale in Mt. Pleasant. She bought that salon from Nancy McCombs. It was called Mt. Pleasant Beauty Salon. Rose met many wonderful people there. And she heard all the wonderful stories from the ladies who had lived their lives in Mt. Pleasant before all the progress that we now see here. Rose sold that salon in 1998, and went to work with the wonderful family that was at Arlene's Beauty Salon. When Arlene retired, it was thru the hard work of three of the girls that we were blessed to have been able to keep most of our family together at Saudade. And we are close enough to the old salon that most of our wonderful clientele stayed with us as well.

Rose has taken many classes and certifications over the years, most recently in Keratin application. She still prefers Goldwell hair color and also works with Illusionist color. And she still works with permanent waves! By hard work from talented stylists and the grace of God, we will be here many more years to come.
