About Whitney

    Growing up in a small town I am a beach girl at heart that would rather do your hair than my own! My life outside of the studio consists of daily dance sessions with my daughter Bowie, my husband Erik, and my fur child Smalls. There is never a dull moment in the Baumbach home! I enjoy weekend coffee dates and grocery shopping with my best friend Sami and trips home to see my family at the OBX. 


    I'm in the business of making people feel beautiful and that is what drives my passion for education.  I love learning, whether it is in a classroom setting, youtube, or Instagram.  I have been doing hair since 2007 and I've had the opportunity to work with and learn from some amazing hairstylist!

    My Goal is to give exceptional service, create a relaxing environment, and build a trusting relationship with all of my clients. Through life's ups and downs, I hope Baumbshell Studio can be your getaway. My passion and creativity is driven by being able to make you feel beautiful inside and out!


    Specializing in blondes and balayage, I love everything about the attention to detail that goes into getting someone to their goals of being a blonde – what tone they want it to be, how natural they want it to look, and making sure that the hairline is perfected. Balayage allows me to let my creativity flow, painting each piece carefully to give it that perfect "sun-kissed" glow! Keeping the integrity of your hair is one of my main concerns and making your hair feel better when you leave is my priority!
