Design Team Profiles
That’s right, believe in the hype--we’re the best at what we do. Not only are we good we are fun too! If your hair ever looked this good, welcome back!
Ray and Cindy Steed, owners of Passion Hair Salon met at a hair show in Toronto, Canada. They discovered they both have a passion for hair, enjoy working with people and sharing their talent with others.
Cindy has been doing hair for over 33 years and owned her own Salon North of Toronto for 11 years. Ray is a former Calvin Klein model and International Stage Artist performing platform stage hairdressing for several world-renowned top educators in the industry. The Steeds moved to Wilmington and opened Passion Hair Salon in January of 1995. They are both International Color and Design Artists.
Ray Steed, International Color & Design Artist
“I am originally from North Carolina and moved to Wilmington 14 years ago and fell in love with the area and the people. This profession is definitely where I found my passion. I enjoy every aspect of what I do. There are no limits to what I’ll allow myself to explore. I work with all kinds of clients, whether you are in need of fabulous color, a short fun cut, or updated long layers. I am your guy!
When I am not working I enjoy kayaking, surf fishing, playing horseshoes, paddle ball, Wii Games and anything else I can turn into a sporting competition.
Can’t wait to see you at the salon!"
Cindy Steed, International Color and Design Artist; Permanent Cosmetics Technician
“Hi! My name is Cindy and I’ve been so blessed to spend each day with a wonderful group of people who truly enjoy my passion. I believe the greatest gift anyone can receive is a love and a passion for what they do in their life. I also believe that having fun and a lot of laughter keeps the heart young and the mind open to possibilities.
For 33 amazing years I have felt this way about my craft. I’ve been a stylist, an educator and a business owner. I’m originally from Canada…eh! but have made Wilmington my home. I like to spend my time off with family, friends, playing on the beach and painting. I also love to cook, work out and best of all go to wine tastings. Life is Great! Come see us!”
Kalisa Tuck, Design Artist
"I am a creative design artist who grew up in Wilmington. My many years experience in the hair industry has given me the confidence and ability to create the most flattering looks. I love what I do! It is very rewarding to have a job that you thoroughly enjoy.
Art is my passion. I see and feel the art in doing hair, as well as other forms of art. As a hobby, I like to do multi-media art in my free time. I’m a bit of a perfectionist and it tends to show in the work I do.
Besides being 'AWESOME' what else is there to say?”
Andrea Wilson, Design Artist and Waxing Specialist
“Hi! My name is Andrea. I’m a design artist and waxing specialist who loves to create the fun looks you crave!
My passion is learning new and interesting techniques to share with others. Working in an open environment with a great group of people has allowed me to continuously expand my knowledge in this industry.
Hair removal can be a truly enjoyable experience provided with the right atmosphere, best products, and a “perfectionist,” such as myself, waxing you!
Whether it’s a fun new style or a silky smooth wax that will put a smile on your face, come see me at Passion!”
Kelly, Certified professional stylist
My name is Kelly and I am a certified professional hair stylist with a focus in hair and lash extensions. I love hair and I personally believe-the more the better! I am so happy to be given the opportunity to make women look and feel their very best, and doing what I love all at the same time. With two and a half years of having my own hair extensions, I can honestly tell you the difference it has made in my life. My hair styles are endless and my “bad hair days” have vanished. The maintenance is easy and there is no irritation or discomfort. I am more than happy to answer any questions and am available for free consultation, both for lash and hair extension questions. I am offering top quality extensions at value prices. I look forward to meeting you-and your new hair!

Come in pretty and leave FABULOUS!”
