Drea Russolillo, Co-Owner of MOTIVE Hair Group, comes from a family of Italian hairdressers and salon owners. It was only a matter of time before she opened a salon of her own. Drea received a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics at UT Dallas and has been trained as both a hairstylist and barber. In her words, “Hair encompasses identity, it’s one of the first things we present when going out in the world as individuals. Each stylist has their own style, but most importantly we are intuitive and loving. At MOTIVE, we don’t just do this job for ourselves, we do it because we find joy by empowering others.” Drea showcases her unique style by specializing in effortless looks, shag haircuts, natural waves and curls, and the perfect face framing fringe. As a Barber she works with both long and short hair, and is a favorite of many of Austin’s long-haired local musicians. See more of her work on her instagram page at @drethings.
