Linda Yodice Mentorship portfolio by Jasmine Houston future professional #60

The Beginning

Linda was born in Yokohama, Japan and adopted at three years old. Her father was an American Navy officer stationed in Yokohama and her mother was Japanese born and raised in Tokyo. They moved to the states where she was raised in Southern California.


Initially Linda was trained by her second adopted Mom who today at 60+ yrs old has her own salon and practices hair 3 days a week. Formally she received training at Allure Beauty College in Mission Viejo. And in her 7th year of hairdressing she was trained by the Scott Cole Salon Team.

Scott Cole and Linda


Linda experienced all aspects within the salon: apprenticeship, stylist/colorist behind the chair, new-hire trainer, and manager. The only thing she has not experienced is salon ownership. She has 15+ years experience in platform artistry, including helping backstage, teaching Colorcutting USA at IBS NYC and even representing several brands on stage (i.e. Aveda, Framesi etc) all before working for Paul Mitchell full time. Her work has been published in trend layouts, covers and how-tos for 20+ years in hairdressing magazines Modern & American Salon, Pelaqueras, Hairdressers Journal, Estetica, Hair & Design and Glamour giving her a very impressive background in print work. She has represented a few product lines Aveda, Logics, Framesi and ColorCutting USA and for the past 15 years endorsed Paul Mitchell Products.

Specialties, Awards & Recognitions

Linda specializes in dimensional hair color while bringing her understanding of haircutting, permanent waving and dressing hair into her color work. One of her proudest accomplishments was being named by Modern Salon magazine as 1 of the Top 100 Educators of the Century. She was also named Hair Colorist of the Year by HairColor USA.

Linda's distinctive style & Philosophy

"A balance of organic elegance on the edge of style. I love leaving things a bit messy, relaxed and free. Hippy Luxe was my most recent inspiration. I believe in quality first then design and would never sacrifice the integrity of the hair for design." - LINDA YODICE
