Andrea Donoghue, or better known to her clients and friends as “Dre” has spent the past decade living and working in NYC. A native Ohioan, she was drawn to the city to work and teach for the acclaimed Bumble and bumble salon. There, as a lead educator and stylist for many years, she focused on building a strong foundation that has allowed her to grow a freelance career in editorial styling, wedding styling, education, and cutting and styling clients in her private studio.
As long as Dre has been in New York she has worked backstage on top designer shows such as Zac Posen, Vera Wang, Marc Jacobs, Alexander Wang, and Dior. She credits her close work under some of fashions most influential hairstylists, Laurent Phillipon, Rolando Beauchamp, James Pecis, and Guido Palau for her continual growth and education. She takes the inspiration from these experiences and shares this modern approach to hairdressing with her clients and other stylists in the industry.
Dre’s love for educating has allowed her both to travel the country, and teach privately from her studio in the East Village of NYC. Her education translates what is currently happening in the fashion industry to achievable looks in both cutting and styling, and custom looks for her clients.
