Amy was raised in Lynnwood, WA and graduated from the Gene Juarez Academy of Beauty in July 2006.
She always loved hair fashions and is intrigued by how hair can change the way someone feels about themselves.
In her spare time Amy loves to spend time with her family and friends and her dog, Rico. She enjoys makeup, dancing, fashion and shopping.
Amy's goal is to one day do hair for runway shows in New York.
When asked about her specialty, Amy states, "I don't feel as if I have a specialty. I just know how much I love to make the whole look from beginning to end."
"In October of last year, my sister in law got married. My husband, daughter and I needed a haircut. Amy was so great with us, and all the girls at Elle Marie were really helpful about my daughter. We got out of the salon with a great attitude and feeling awesome. For the wedding, Amy did my hair in an updo and everyone loved it! That day I received a lot of compliments. Because of that service and the way i feel afterwards, I will never change hair salons again!! You guys rock!!!"

"I have to share how pleased I am – and send the highest compliment for Amy. I’ve been salon-hopping for YEARS now, struggling to find a place where I walked out feeling better about my hair than when I walked in – and would actually look forward to doing my hair each day. Amy did a great job of asking questions and actually listening to my responses about my past salon experiences. She has great instinct and is really a pro, and I suspect from eavesdropping on some of the other conversations, so are the others there. I will be back – and look forward to being able to refer Elle Marie Hair Studio to others. Thank you!"

"Amy - you are so awesome! I cannot thank you enough for the amazing cuts and color that you always give me! You truly have a gift in understanding what the client wants. Everytime I leave the salon, my hair looks even better than what I envisioned was possible. Your work and the way you interact with clients is amazing! Thank you so much!"

"To the wonderful ladies of Elle Marie Hair Studio:
I wish to send you this note of appreciation as I truly enjoyed my experience at your lovely salon. I was made to feel very comfortable and special from the moment I walked in until the moment I left.
With that said it brings me to another reason for writing this note. I really need to express my gratitude to Amy Wirtz. This beautiful lady truly has a way of making you feel special and I had no idea of what my hair was capable of looking like until Amy took control! I told her I was tired of the same old style and color and I just wanted her to change me! Within 2 hours Amy effortlessly, confidently and with so much fun transformed my dull look into a fantastic new look! Her choice in color and cut took over 5 years off my face and renewed my spirit. She is awesome and so professional. I WILL be seeing her again!
Thank you so very much Amy and thank you all for the hospitality!"

"Just wanted to say thanks, especially to Amy who gave me such a great cut and color! I'd been thinking of going from really long to really short for a couple years and last Friday I made the plunge. I'm so glad I did! Everyone freaked out (in a good way) when they saw me! Troy, my husband loves it! They all want to know where I got my haircut and of course I tell them go to Elle Marie! So definitely pass my thanks on to Amy, she did an amazing job, I love it!"

"How nice of Elle Marie to send a Merry Christmas Greeting - you look wonderful (especially Amy who does my hair so I'm biased!). Please tell Amy I LOVE MY HAIR and she was right to cut in some bangs. Just the small change has made such a big change."
