Whitney Panke – Senior Colorist

Originally from Michigan, I moved to Tampa, FL, and lived there for 15 years. I got my start as a hair assistant at the world renowned salon Toni&Guy in Tampa, and worked my way up to senior colorist. There, I kept up with all the latest color trends.

When I moved to NJ, I knew I wanted to find a salon where I could specialize in color. My search was over when I found the Yanni Erbeli Salon. Not only is the salon beautiful, but all the stylists are truly talented and treat everyone like family. I’m passionate about hair and enjoy making people feel good from the inside out.

My artistic creativity comes out to play when I have the opportunity to apply techniques for a more modern look—like Balayage (hand-painted highlights), Ombre (highlights applied to the ends of your hair) or Sombre (a more subtle version of Ombre).

Whether you prefer soft natural tones or fancy yourself a Victoria’s Secret blonde, I’ve got you covered.
