Sica Dawn is a licensed hair stylist based out of Minneapolis, where she has made a name for herself both behind the chair and as an onsite session stylist. Over more than a decade as a professional stylist she has focused her efforts not only on her own independent success, but also on collaborations among other stylists and artists within the Twin Cities, opening her own salon in 2007, and co-founding the Sinktrap Hair Collective stylist team in 2015, and taking on the role of national educator for the Milan based Big Professional color line.
As she has grown into her own vision of what it means to be an artist, she has continued to obtain continuing education to further her skills and stay ahead of the cutting edge in fashion, form and design. She has focused her efforts not only on advancing her techniques behind the chair, working with all skin and hair types, colors, and textures, but also on crafting her own unique point of view for both print and stage, working with a number of performers and publications, and constantly looking to develop new relationships and approaching new opportunities with enthusiasm.
She has received numerous awards and scholarships, as well as advanced education from a number of industry leaders, including exclusive opportunities with the visionary Sam McKnight and trailblazing Vivienne Mackinder, and working as an active member of the Tearsheets Artistic Team, an elite editorial styling collective lead by Giovanni Guitolli of Redken, among many other accomplishments. Sica has developed looks for creatives designers for numerous Fashion Week events and shows nationally, including producing her own shows for Fashion Week Minnesota, as well as working closely with designers and artists year-round to develop visuals that tell their story and help to further their unique brands.
