Amanda Egusquiza started her career at Eiji Salon as an apprentice under her mentor Michael Murphy, an internationally renowned colorist. His technique to enhance, brighten and deepen color inspired Amanda to challenge herself and succeed at her work. Michael’s unfortunate passing changed her life, and though he is no longer here, his light will always shine on her. She is forever thankful. Upon his passing and with Eiji's support, Amanda was able to establish herself as a colorist. She successfully assumed his book of business and now her career has flourished.

Given the opportunity to visit Japan with Eiji Salon as the only colorist, Amanda colored models for a dry haircut exhibition. This experience was pivotal to her growth in the profession.

She has a passion for helping clients achieve the most complimentary contemporary and traditional colors, also using peroxides and lighteners. She loves working in a creative environment with fabulous people. She's always willing to learn something new and always pushing boundaries. 

She explores the world of color. Color is her craft.
