Linda Bower

Creative Director
I was born and raised in Ireland. I did a four year apprenticeship at the David Marshall Hair Academy, in Dublin, which was the first academy of its kind to teach Vidal Sassoon Fashion. After exceeding in my apprenticeship I continued to work there for an additional three years before I came to America.

“Passionate and Professional” is my motto. I truly love what I do and so my passion and precision shines through all aspects of my work. My consultations are of utmost importance to me. As a stylist, the most important part of my job is to LISTEN to each individual’s needs and wants, and help them maximize their natural gifts.

Hair cutting and coloring (corrective color, color balancing, traditional color, and highlighting) are my areas of expertise. I like to keep up with the current and hottest trends and techniques. Throughout my career I continue advanced training in intense programs such as:

– Vidal Sassoon Academy, Dublin, Ireland
– Bumble and bumble Design Workshop, New York
– Unite Euro therapy, San Diego
– Eurfora Global Connection, San Diego
– Energizing Summit for professional hair coloring, LA
– Wella professionals hair coloring studio, L.A

I am proud to say that I am the co-owner of La Mode Salon, my home away from home!

Finding a stylist is like searching for the perfect pair of jeans. Needless to say, once they are found you stay true and loyal to them, donning the denim until they are thin in the rear and holier than Swiss cheese…. Just like those perfect pair of jeans, Tryna is the perfect “fit”.

With advanced training from industry leading companies such as Bumble & Bumble, Aveda, Vidal Sassoon, Wella, Goldwell, and even hair icon Phillip Wilson, Tryna is truly and undeniably versatile. With a knack for styling and coloring hair flawlessly and with precision, not only has she graced clients with her gift behind the chair at local salons throughout Southern California and New York, but her work has been featured in editorials that can be found in People’s Magazine; music videos for artists including Justin Timberlake, T.I., and Black Eyed Peas; and she has even showcased her talents on national television for shows such as America’s Next Top Model.

Tryna is able to instantly transform and renew any old-fashioned, dull, or dowdy hairstyle into one that’s fresh, chic, classy, dapper, trendy, and polished. Her avant-garde approach to sculpting and styling hair can benefit those who require minimal upkeep, to those who must always be red carpet-ready, as well as everything else in between.

In addition to keeping abreast of the newest trends in the industry, Tryna’s main objective is to please her clients with her craft. Described as ‘down-to-earth’ and ‘totally honest,’ the sweet, yet sassy, but always fashionable Tryna is also gifted in forming genuine, everlasting connections with her clients through her five-star treatment, and her ability to create that perfect look for every individual who is lucky enough to be graced by her genius and skills.
