Ambushed Interns:

Anytime a new stylist joins the Ambushed Team, they are required to go through our Curl Immersion Internship led by our Owner and Founder, Amy Bush. As an intern, they learn the unique curl techniques developed by Amy through her 30+ years of experience and education known as The 4 Pillars of ArchiTEXTURE. It is her way of teaching and certifying each stylist with all the skills and knowledge they need to succeed as a Curl Specialist. Knowledge of global textures, cutting techniques, coloring, styling, product usage and communication are just a few of the valuable skills they gain throughout this process. Without it, they would not be able to provide the customized services Ambushed is known for. While they are learning, interns provide services at a discounted rate. This is a great opportunity to support their learning!

We don’t have any interns available at this time. Please keep an eye on our social media and here for updates!
