When did you know that you wanted to do hair?
I had always loved playing with hair as a child but I realized I wanted to make a career out of it shortly after high school.

Describe your approach to doing hair.
I like to get to know a little bit about my guest before I suggest a cut, color or style so I can get a feel for their personality. I want to give them something that is easy to recreate at home and that fits their lifestyle.

What inspires you?
My co-workers and guests inspire me to be a better stylist, mentor and educator every day. I am a specialist and an artist with many years of experience, but I learn something new from them on a daily basis.

What advice would you give to someone coloring their hair for the first time?
Go for it! Change is a constant in life! Color can add life to your skin tone, brighten your mood and compliment your hair design! It’s all about the total look!

How do you customize a hair service for each and every guest?
It’s all about the consultation!

What celebrities always have great hair?
Julianne Hough, Blake Lively, and Katy Perry

Describe your personal style:
My style tends to change with the fashion trends but it’s always classy and a little bit edgy.
