My name is Linda and I am a sustainable and holistic hair and wardrobe expert with over 25 years of practical and research experience. I cut over ten thousand people’s hair in Europe, North America and Hawaii, hold a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology, one in European Languages and Literature, and published several books on the themes of hair, wardrobe and gems.
I was born and raised in Hamburg, Germany. As a teenager I experienced hair loss and other hair challenges that led me to look for answers. That was at a time when you couldn’t Google; therefore I set forth on a journey that would lead me to a life long passion for classical homeopathy, Astrology, holistic health, and psychology. When I was seventeen, I started to practice yoga and meditation. After my first lesson I noticed a special sun starting to shine in my universe and it never disappeared.Shortly thereafter I had a vision of a ‘hair healer’ coming across the ocean. A few years later in 1987 I met the hair healer William Mercury Yount, who practiced and taught ‘Hair Balancing.’ I spent hundreds of hours with him watching, translating, and learning but never intended to actually cut people’s hair myself. However, when William was traveling I started to help out his clients and began to balance their hair. After his sudden death in 1990 I decided to continue and expand his legacy. In 1991 in Laguna Beach, California, I was lucky to meet an amazing pioneer in the magical world of hair: Anthony Morrocco, who shared with me his holistic hair care system that uses astrological lunar cuts, Chinese medicine, chemical-free products and proper hair and scalp care to promote healthy hair growth.
For my Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from the University of Hamburg I wrote a thesis on the significance of hair, and for my Master’s degree in Literature from the University of Hawai’i, I completed a thesis on hair symbolism in fairy tales. My first book Haare im Licht was published in 2004, my second book Nie Mehr Haarausfall Again in 2007 and the third one Die Kleiderdiät in 2009. After another vision, in which I saw a comb carved out of Rose quartz, I started to have exquisite combs made carved out of ten different gemstones : the Gemcombs. I wrote the Gemcomb Guide Book, which explains their purpose and history. You can find out more about gemstone combs here.
In 2015 my long time associate and friend Laura Sullivan and I self-published Awakening Hair – Caring for Your Cosmic Antenna, available through Amazon.
In the fall of 2017, after 27 years I moved back to Hamburg, Germany to be close to my partner and my parents. I travel regularly to the United States and within Europe. I am looking forward to hearing from you and feel honored to be of service.
