JAIMIE LEE STEVENSON
Jaimie is an owner of Tillverkare and a versatile stylist with more than a decade of experience, Jaimie is as fearless as she is flexible. She works closely with clients to create hairstyles that perfectly suit their preferences, face shapes, and desired maintenance levels. But her superpower? Hair-related problem-solving: Easing clients through the grow-out process, correcting a color job gone wrong, or creating custom extensions. She’s adept with both long layers and short, edgy cuts. Jaimie is a wizard with color, specializing in balayage looks ranging from dramatic two-tone ombré to subtle sun-kissed highlights. She offers wedding and special event styling services, everything from classic bridal chignons to loose waves with flower crowns. Jaimie adores helping brides look radiant for their big days, and also offers makeup services. She studied at the Aveda Institute, went on to graduate from the Westmore Academy of Cosmetic Arts, and has styled for print, commercial, editorial, and live fashion shows. Want a stylist who’ll listen to your needs and make your hair goals a reality? Jaimie is your girl.
Tayler is an owner at Tillverkare. Growing up on a farm in Wheatland, North Dakota, Tayler Camas knew what she was destined for. Opening her own salon has always been Tayler’s dream. At the age of five, she was already an in-demand stylist for her friends and family. As one of five siblings, Tayler used her skills to barter — hair and make-up glamour sessions in exchange for chores. Immediately after finishing high school in 2009, Tayler moved to Minneapolis, the “big city,” to attend the Aveda Institute. She arrived not knowing anyone, but her inherent passion and desire to learn kept her moving forward. “I’ve always loved hair and fashion, and I wanted to be in a city to do that.” Today, she maintains a dedicated client base, proving that making the move to follow her dream was worth the risk. “This industry is always changing, and I embrace change. I’m always go, go, go and I like to keep up with it.” She gets excited about special event hair, which she excels at thanks for her patience and constant striving for perfection.
Avant-garde while accessible, edgy but wearable, Jessica excels at delivering irreplicable looks. She soaks up inspiration through careful observation of street style, although nothing she does can be traced back to a singular look. By melding bits and pieces of different styles together, Jessica excels at creating a unique look her client can call her (or his) own. Jessica was trained at the Aveda Institute in Minneapolis and has more than a decade of experience. She considers short women’s cuts a personal specialty that allows her to be the most creative, proving that you can do a lot more with less.
SARA VANDER PLOEG
Curls may have recently been declared as “back in style,” but advanced DevaCurl stylist Sara Vander Ploeg knew they were never out. Sara comes to Tillverkare via TC2 Salon, where she deployed her expert curling craft. After studying at the James International College in Iowa City, Sara went on to finish her training in Italy, where she was able to soak up the aesthetics of the city, as well as take in weekly fashion shows. Her penchant for runway-worthy hair and makeup led her to LA, where she was trained in hair and makeup for TV. She finds joy in the challenge of adapting Hollywood looks for the wearable, everyday. Her passion is curly hair, and the DevaChan salon retrains her each year. For a stylist that is intent on embracing her clients’ natural beauty, look no further.
As a second-generation hair stylist, Jason Stiller grew up in the industry. His father owned a salon in Fargo, North Dakota, which is where Jason got his first job out of cosmetology school. After moving to Minneapolis to continue cultivating his craft in a bigger city, he proceeded to work at three different Avant salons throughout the city. Then, after operating independently at D Richards Salon for seven years, Jason became co-owner of Tres Jolie Salon in Uptown Minneapolis. Though he continued working with his clients throughout that time, nine years spent managing made him even more passionate about what keeps him in the industry — the chance to keep learning and perfecting new services while creating a meaningful and fulfilling salon experience for his clients. By starting this new chapter at Tillverkare, Jason has the chance to expand the scope of his offerings (more hair extensions) while maintaining the level of quality his clients have come to expect from each of his services. By seeking inspiration through nature and his surroundings, his work enhances each of his clients overall look beautifully.
I love men’s cuts and short cuts, edgy or classic the most. I believe that a thorough consultation is the key to a satisfied client. I am excited to meet you.
Freya is not only an amazing part of the Tillverkare team; She’s the tone-setter you’ll see behind our desk when arriving at the salon. She’s a smart, talented and beautiful culture maker.
