Co-Founder and Owner at Motive Hair, Drea personifies her philosophy, saying, “Hair stands as a potent expression of identity, it’s visible manifestation of who we are and want to share with the world. While each stylist brings their unique artistic touch, it’s our instinctual understanding and genuine love for the craft that sets us apart. Our motivation doesn’t spring merely from self-fulfillment; it blooms from the pure joy we find in empowering others.”

With a father who was also a talented hairdresser and salon owner, it was only a matter of time before she left the corporate world to embark on her own journey in the industry. She wanted to create a salon space that was not only safe and comfortable but also mirrored her distinctive vision.

In her personal life, Drea is immersed in the vibrant Austin live music scene, passionately supporting her husband and his brothers as veteran Austin musicians in the rock and roll band Amplified Heat. Drea unwinds by curling up with her two beloved kitties and reading a sci-fi or fantasy novel or throwing on an episode of Star Trek TNG. She loves a road trip adventure, hiking, and traveling when she gets the chance!

Drea excels in crafting transformative haircuts, effortless layered looks, chic shag styles, & working with natural waves and curls. She is an extension specialist and a wizard with transformative installations. Her distinctive style has earned her the adoration of Austin’s creatives, making her their preferred stylist. @drethings
