What are you currently working on?
I am currently working on growing and building my business. I am taking advantage of opportunities to grow myself with further education opportunities and expanding my skills.
How do you spend your free time?
Outside of furthering my education at the salon, I love to read! I recently got a Kindle so I am working on filling it with great reads! Also I love to garden during the spring and summer!
What is your mantra?
Live, Love, & Let Be
When did you know that you wanted to do hair?
I have always wanted to be involved in the beauty industry and was of course the little girl at the beauty salon with my grandmother and mother looking in awe, anxious to get home to practice on my barbies (and my sister when she let me!). But I would say consciously making a decision to make a career and life for myself doing what I love, about 5 years ago.
Describe your approach to doing hair, what inspires you?
My approach is simple, I want to do my best to help my clients do what I do behind the chair at home! Taking their lifestyle in consideration and making each style unique to them! What inspires me? I like to look outside my own surroundings and see what is going on all around, take in colors, patterns and fashion trends. I get inspired by history, music, and mostly I get inspired by my love for what I do!
What advice would you give to someone coloring their hair for the first time?
Life is too short to wonder if. . . big or small change I am excited to a part of this first for my clients! Consultation is the key here and working together to get educated and informed so we can create the best you to put toward!
How do you approach a haircut?
Again I think consultation is key and finding out what kind of lifestyle my client has and working with them to achieve a look that is uniquely theirs!
What celebrity always has great style?
For the ladies, Michele Williams, Jessica Chastain, Mena Suvari, Mila Kunis, and Jessica Alba. As for the fellas, David Beckham, Patrick Dempsey, Chace Crawford, and Tom Selleck!
Describe your personal style?
I would describe my style as edgy and unique with classic twists!
