Highlights and creative color are my forte.  I believe in keeping hair healthy while having a variety of styles to play with; But I don’t limit myself there. I lovelovelove short fun, funky cuts , men cuts and fades,  unique color blocking, natural sun kissed highlights, voluminous blow outs, long beautiful layers and working with super thick hair.  I’m also well versed in ethnic hair care and maintenance.I love being able to work with many different hair textures, I get a thrill out of challenging myself and learning new things.

Hairstylist

Bio

I believe that hair is a study in geometry and physics. I love to cut mostly, but color is very exciting when applied in a natural fashion and used as a tool to brighten the image you want to achieve. I enjoy looking at someone’s hair and recognizing what it is going to do on its own. You should be able to roll of out of bed and look fantastic! I’m meticulous and thorough and can guarantee that my techniques will allow a cut to grow out better than ever. My methods revolve around the organic nature of hair and the way it flows. Baby-fine or uuber-thick, short and feminine or long flowing layers – as well as clean, neat and professional looks are my specialty.

Hairstylist + Makeup + Bridal

Specialization

My number one priority while you are in my chair is making sure you are happy. I want you to be comfortable, relaxed, excited, and confident in my ability to create your vision. Of course, I am happy to help with ideas and be a part of the creative process, but at the end of the day it is your hair and my goal is to make sure you love your locks. Let’s have some fun and make you feel beautiful, book your appointment with me!


Color: My all-time favorite coloring technique would have to be Balayage. It is a way I can use the hair as my canvas and get creative with the placement of the color. Hair-painting is limitless and there are no rules! I also absolutely love vivid funky colors and traditional highlights. This is definitely something I could go on and on about. I LOVE COLOR!


Bridal/Makeup: Something I have always held near and dear to my heart. Before I became a hairstylist, I always dreamt of creating extravagant updos and seamless, natural looking makeup for brides on their most important day. I am fortunate enough to be living my dream. I have quite a large number of weddings under my belt. Let me make you feel special, stunning and ease the stress on your big day!


Dreadlocks: I have been doing maintenance on dreadlocks for quite some time. My husband has had dreadlocks for about a decade and I get to play with them and experiment.  I also install dreadlocks and make the process as pain free and calm as possible. Have questions? Book a completely free consultation.


Haircutting/Styling: I love long flowing layers, face framing, short edgy pixies, precisely cut angled bobs, baby bangs,…you name it I’ve done it. Styling is so much fun! I love teaching my clients how to recreate their new haircut at home. I also love giving my clients fun tips, tricks and ideas on how to style their hair differently for a new fresh look.
