BIOS


Becky Goodwin

Becky Goodwin (Owner/Master Stylist) is a Pittsburgh native with over a decade of design experience. She graduated from Penn State University's Schreyer Honors College with a B.A. in Media Design and an Honors in Business. This collegiate experience places her in a unique position to offer intelligent and creative solutions during a consultation. As a cosmetologist, Becky has fallen in love with the combination of artistry and customer service that the beauty industry demands. In an effort to become a true artist, she is enthralled with continuing education and dreams of someday vacationing at the Vidal Sassoon Academy. She has participated in training through Aveda, Sukar, and M.A.C. Cosmetics. Above all, she believes in empowering women by showing them how to enhance their natural beauty. When Becky isn't behind the chair, she can probably be found working on her cape-cod style house, reading a new fiction novel, or having a zany adventure.


Carolyn Ingimarson

Carolyn Ingimarson (Manager), though she grew up in Calgary and Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, has spent more than half her life in the US and loves Pittsburgh with a passion. Her professional secretarial career has been spent working in private schools and in the robotics industry in the city and she is loving her new career at Tula. When not working, Carolyn loves reading, gardening, hanging out with her husband, friends, two grown sons (when they’re home!), and learning about different wines and cheeses.


Laura Dupier

Laura Dupier (Stylist) is a rural eastern PA native and the youngest of eight children, Brady bunch style. She moved to Pittsburgh to attend the Art Institute, and received her degree in Interior Design in 2012. From there, she followed her lifelong dream of becoming a hairstylist. Her love for design, fantasy, and all things bold and beautiful helped her cultivate her mission as a stylist: to make everyone feel like the star of their own story. Laura has attended advanced education both in Pittsburgh and in Las Vegas. She is certified in Donna Bella Milan and Cinderella hair extensions, as well as Kett airbrush makeup. Laura would love the opportunity to make you feel like the best you! When not at the salon, you can find Laura working on her scrapbooks, hanging out with her right hand man, or lounging with a book surrounded by her two cats: Chanel and Armani, and her Pit Bull: Loki.


Melissa Collier

Melissa Collier (Senior Stylist) is a country girl at heart but has been living in Pittsburgh since 2009. She has been with Aveda for over 6 years and has attended many hair shows as well as education classes. She really enjoys the art of coloring and cutting. She is also an esthetician at Renew Skincare, where clients can come to relax and feel youthful. Melissa enjoys being outside and spending time with friends and family.


Betsy Schrecengost

Betsy Schrecengost (Stylist) grew up in Greensburg, PA and moved to the city while attending Point Park University. She graduated with a degree in Early Childhood Education and made her city residence permanent. After several jobs in different fields, and with encouragement from friends and family, she followed a long time passion for cosmetology. Betsy approaches her work with a sense of fun and creativity, and is passionate about continuing to grow and learn. In her spare time, she loves to paint & draw, garden, play video games and spend time with family, friends, her boyfriend and their two cats: Kimber & Nimbus.


Dayle Kendall

Dayle Kendall (Senior Stylist) has been working as a hairstylist for over a decade, in salons from New York to Pittsburgh! Dayle is a great fit for Tula's organic mission as she has a degree in Environmental biology with a minor in chemistry. She is great at creating fashionable styles for every face. If you love color - she's your girl. She can do anything from covering those pesky greys to a trendy pop of bright colors. In her free time she enjoys running and being a new mom.


Erika Seezox

Erika Seezox (Master Stylist) grew up in a family salon in Butler, PA and has been a professional stylist for eight years in Butler and Pittsburgh. While exploring career options, Erika attended college, but found that her passion for hair and styling was and is her true calling. Erika's professional career has included Aveda advanced training in Pittsburgh, DC, Minneapolis, Indianapolis, and New York. She collaborated with designers for New York Fashion Week in 2012 under the direction of Jon Reyman. Erika provides expertise in all services that Tula offers including facials and sugaring. Creating multi dimensional color and chic, fashion forward cuts is her favorite part of the job. When not at the salon you can find Erika spending time chilling with her friends, family, and especially her adorable nephews. She takes the opportunity to travel and sightsee when she can, but also loves relaxing on the beach.


Kristy Dubinsky

Kristy Dubinsky (Senior Stylist) is from Ohio, but has spent the past years living in Colorado and California. With over 8 years of professional styling experience, she especially loves blow outs, highlighting with foils and balayage, and gorgeous cuts. She is highly trained with Aveda and has taken classes all over the country to be on top of the latest skills and techniques. Since she is new to Pittsburgh, she is enjoying getting to know the city and her Lawrenceville neighborhood. When not working, she loves to travel and be outdoors hiking and exploring with her crazy dogs, Gypsum and Fender.
