Doing what I love, in memory of my brother.

-Tara McCutchen



Tara McCutchen, a Michigan native, moved to Texas in December of 2012 and now resides in Salem, Oregon as of November of 2022.


She graduated from Toni & Guy Hairdressing Academy in February of 2018, but has been doing hair for as long as she can remember. She grew up in the Cosmetology world because of her Mother who was an instructor for 30 years and owned a salon for a few years as well. 


Tara always knew she wanted to do hair, even as she has tried out a few other career paths. She has her Bachelors in Vocal Music and is a Certified Medical Assistant; Married to her husband Chad, they are kept busy with 2 Husky mixes doing outdoor actives and drinking lots of coffee! 


The name Absolute Strength is kept alive by Tara in memory of her brother, Chas. He passed away at the age of 19 years old from colon cancer. He created this “brand name” Absolute Strength in hopes to one day create something with it. Tara has adapted this as her brand name and motto to work by. She is keeping her brothers legacy alive and uses it to invite others to inquire about him and his story. 


"Weddings are my passion and I enjoy everything about the process. From initially meeting and communicating with my brides, to making their hair dreams come true and meeting/working with their amazing bride tribe! I am so blessed to call this my career"
