At this stylist’s very core, Linde May is first and foremost a sculptor. From her love of the raw and primitive use of clay to her extensive background in 3D metalsmithing, it came as no surprise when she left the Art Institute of Philadelphia and made the switch from a budding graphic designer to a hairstylist ready to put her hands to work. Inspired by the hairstyles of the early punk era, a wild experimentation of cuts and colors played a defining role in her coveted techniques of creative color and razor cutting today. Linde May’s main passion for men’s grooming through the mastery of scissor and clipper cuts not only built her a loyal set of clientele of thirteen years and counting, but also earned her the unwavering status as one of the top in-demand stylists here at Modify.
