Ambur Gore, Owner/Stylist
Ambur Gore began her Cosmetology training in 2004 in Arizona. She apprenticed a local salon owner for two years after graduating from Cosmetology school. After working in a local Phoenix hair salon for four years, Ambur wanted to create a workspace that specialized in Vegan and Organic Hair Care using less chemicals.
That dream was realized in November, 2009, when she opened Honeycomb Studio on 24th Street and Thomas Road in Phoenix, Arizona. In May, 2013 she relocated the salon to the Willo neighborhood, off of 7th Avenue and Thomas Road in Phoenix, AZ.
Ambur competed in the Hair Wars Competition 2006 (Scottsdale, AZ) and 2008 (Las Vegas, NV) with the hairstylists of Urban Hair. She has styled hair for fashion shows such as SMoCA Nights 2005-2009, Scottsdale Fashion Week 2005-2010, and the Grand Avenue Annual Fashion Show 2010. Her work has been published and written about in Java Magazine-2010 and The Phoenix New Times-2009.
Ambur is available for gentlemen and lady's hand crafted haircuts, custom Organic Colour Systems hair color, up-do's and styles, dreadlock creation/extensions/maintenance for all hair textures, Organic Curl Systems permanent waves, and scalp treatments.
Besides doing hair Ambur loves the outdoors and is a full time Interpretive Park Ranger in the valley. She is a performing cellist and signer with the local band North Brother Island and Desert Figs (a duo composed of herself and her husband), a visual artist, a twin, a pet owner, and a volunteer.
