Expanding possibilities is what I love. I use my background as a sculptor and empathetic listening skills to ensure that you leave feeling fresh and authentic. I thrive working with people who want easy to maintain styles, are willing to make small changes for big impact, and fellow moms who are tired of boring hair! I specialize in short hair, curly hair, natural dreadlocks and synthetic and human dreadlock extensions. When I’m not at the salon you can find me working in my ceramic studio in Ballard, teaching art classes at Seattle Art Museum and Kirkland Arts Center. I live with my husband and two adorable kids in Seattle where we like to eat delicious food, make art together, and spend time with friends. I love cosplay and reading fantasy, comics, detective novels and anything by Neil Gaiman!

About Helix Salon

Helix Salon is the brainchild of Sam Ploetz, a master stylist and curly girl. Her desire to create an inclusive, feminist space for all genders and curl types was the impetus for starting Helix, a curl-centric and nerdy/geeky salon. Helix Salon is a queer-friendly, body positive, comfortable space for all people to celebrate their personal resplendence.

Helix Salon has a storefront salon space at 2508 5th Ave, on the north end of downtown Seattle. Parking can be found on the street, or there is a public lot for the building with an entrance on Vine St. between 5th and 6th Avenues.
