The Hair Expressionist

Hi friend! I'm Hannah Trikakis, a passion driven hairstylist in the NoVA/DC metro area. I am the own


Lvl 29 unlocked 🔓
This is the first birthday that’s truly made me reflect on my life. Growing up I couldn’t imagine myself as an adult. I think many of us feel that way. Suddenly we’re waking up and 10 years have flown by and now we’re watching each other on social media comparing our accomplishments… next thing you know that list that you once that was long seems shorter. People often have this perspective of looking at our list of failures and comparing that to other people’s accomplishments. People don’t share their failures the same way they share their accomplishments. Keeping this mind has helped me realize that my list of accomplishments isn’t getting shorter and my list of failures is getting longer… there’s just more room on the page now to keep adding to both so I can continue to grow. I will never be perfect and I will fail a lot but I’m open and ready to learn the lessons along the way.


Something about a cute lil pixie with soft texture is so satisfying! ❤️‍🔥
I really enjoy haircuts like this. I used un.done spray to give her hair some volume and extra texture while avoiding stickiness 🌟


Bright Golden balayage ☀️
This is from a while back but I had to share because it’s too pretty not to. Her hair is so long I couldn’t fit it all in the photo 😍😂


PSA: my suite is a safe space. I will not judge you or others and I will never cancel you as a person. Y’all get me through some tough s**t sometimes and I want to favor to be returned. Idc what’s professional this or what’s professional that, I thrive for the deeper connection with people. I can talk small talk and sometimes it’s necessary because the state of the world can be so heavy. However the deeper questions, meanings, and spiritual growth is my jam so let’s talk it up if you have the energy. If not that’s cool, I have space reserved for you too 💛

Fire Curls ❤️‍🔥 love this color and I’m obsessed with the curls!! She had a chop done to the front of her hairline to create “face framing layers” however it was literally a bang-shelf. This time we went a little more s**ggy to blend it out and I think we’re living out best curly lives now🧡 Only took 15 minutes to diffuse. Peep the bright red underneath 😍

Freshened up this soft blonde before her wedding day 🤍 the way it makes her eyes pop is unreal 😍 congratulations I’m so happy for you 💕

I say it a lot, but I really feel so grateful for you all. I couldn’t do any of what I do if it wasn’t for all the trust and support through out the years. I still follow a number of you who don’t see me anymore, and I want to say thank you to you too. I’ve learned so much from everyone who has ever sat in my chair. I really try to grow with every experience so just know your presence is always important to me 💛 I’ll be your hairstylist, therapist, sound board, hype man, you name it lol I’m here for you they way you’ve been here for me.

It’s great seeing people’s beautiful faces and smiles again! And I’m seriously digging this high contrast look. We blended her previous balayage and made her e-girl dreams come true ~~

I’ve been working so much since I’ve opened, more than I ever have before. I’m exhausted however I feel really fulfilled. My dream is coming true because of amazing people like you!! my guests!! I love you all and I really truly appreciate you.


Oh hello, I remembered to take a picture of my clients hair !! 🌟
Doesnt it look adorable on her?
Ive been so busy with seeing all of you great people and trying to keep up with my personal life. Idk how some people can juggle 1000 different things without stressing out!! I appreciate everyone who’s taken a look at my stories and stayed up to date with me there!

If Spring had a perfect hair color transformation, this is it. 🌼 Bringing someone’s inner self to light and helping them bloom. That’s the sh*t I live for 💛


Total hair inspo ✨ (for myself really) ive been meaning to share this super fun hair on my dear friend 💛 blonde color block done by ((I wanna be this cool))

The cutest pink curls you’ll ever see ! 💗 we want this to fade into a pastel pink so we made it brighter so the color will last longer. 🌟

Loving these power/money pieces. It creates maximum impact with minimal effort so it’s a great way to look lighter and more blonde 🌟

How adorable is this modern French bob?? Literally obsessed. No color this time, just wanted to share how cute this cut this 💛

*manifesting s**gs, mullets, and curly hair* 💙💙💙 give me all the fun and edgy hair! Loved doing this blue to blonde with a few brighter blue peekaboos. Thank you for always being so rad, really appreciate you. Let’s go crystal shopping soon ✨

Back to low maintenance ⚡️
I had been taking this guest to a level 10 blonde in 2019 for her wedding in 2020. Long story short we just got reconnected and I was so excited. As much as we loved the blonde we knew it was time to let her hair have a break and I think it looks so much healthier and fuller now ! Little bit of TLC can go a long way.

Soft Neutrals 🌼
Ash only tones are not the only option! Neutral to warmer tones are brighter than ash tones so you can live the gorgeous blonde life without needing to be SO light 🌟 this is our 2nd session of blending out her previous line of demarcation from a global bleach out (not my work).

Passable for professional with a hint of edge ✨ Did the best I could with these pictures considering the lack of light source. I was SO excited for this because my guest literally told me “do whatever” (thank you for being so cool Ryce) so I decided to delve into my warm tone obsession recently and create this peachy rose gold. ALSO twisting it into the heavy color blocking with the bangs. So obsessed. Did I tell you I’m obsessed?


I’ve been feeling pretty stagnant the last few months so I’ve decided to start branching out again and find new hair artists that inspire me. Stepping outside our comfort zones is really challenging, especially when others are involved. And The outcomes can be risky but when it comes out amazing the feeling is incredible!!

I really enjoyed creating this rich, warm bronde for my gorgeous guest! More of this please please please !! ✨

Going through the photos to find pictures because I realized I haven’t been taking much recently. Mercury in retrograde really put me through a loop this time around! Grateful to have made it through and now to focus again. Looking forward to the experience of Pisces seasons since it’s my rising sign 😜 enjoy this mushroom brown on my beautiful guest!

Do you ever feel like a hair color describes you perfectly?
This is it. (Even tho it’s not my hair I resonate with it) I’ve Been feeling down and blue lately but also excited and inspired. Played with to create this pretty melt! So grateful for fun clients.

We can all pretend it’s warm and sunny these days ☀️loved doing this seamless balayage on a gorgeous red mane 😍

Mushroom brown babylights with a subtle shadow root 🌟Despite how it looks this color still takes a long time! Gotta trust in the process to create healthy hair that will also continue to look great even weeks after coming to the salon 🤍

Platinum blonde but not silver but borderline white? Idk you tell me 🤷‍♀️ what I DO know is there is 0000000 yellow/gold/brass whatever you wanna call it. Get it out we don’t want her here today 👋👋👋

HIME ✨👘👑💛
I always enjoy ideas that are totally different. not everyone wants to be in “trend” and we shouldn’t force them to be. We need to help lift each other up and be supportive.

I sat here this morning trying to come up with a perfect caption and post at the perfect time but I decided f that cuz I want to be honest and real with y’all...
I’ve always tried to find my niche with posting good content and making my page look all nice. I’ve tried to hit that algorithm at the right time.... Only to realize that it’s been making me stressed and unhappy and resulting into me never posting. I just want to be a real person because that’s what I am in real life. I haven’t been happy with my content BUT I’ve been focusing on manifesting what I really want and lemme tell you that ish WORKS because this week gave me some of that. This year has obviously been a huge challenge for the entire world but I’m taking it and running because I’m tired of using it as an excuse. Murphy’s Law and Murphy was an optimist. 🌻

Can’t decide to go lighter or stay dark? Why not both? 😝 I’m always a fan of dark blondes!! Something bright and light but still blended beautifully without a crazy amount of maintenance. (Which I think most of us are fans of). So grateful to paint a beautiful head of hair on such a kind person!! 💞
