My passion for hairdressing comes from my Dad. Following in his footsteps, hairdressing has become my passion. I graduated from the Toni&Guy hairdressing Academy in Carrollton, TX in 2004, specializing in color. I went on to do extensive training with Toni&Guy and got my teaching Certification in Color. After realizing how much I loved the business I went on to get further education at the Santa Monica Toni&Guy Academy for classic cuts. I now enjoy doing it all from Hothead Extentions, Color projects, Haircuts to Brazilian blowouts. Having an eye for what looks best for my client is my speciality. My passion is to make people feel good and look good. Ultimately, the reward with doing hair is the lasting relationships I’ve built with all my clients.

I have been in love with cutting and coloring hair since long before the beginning of my formal cosmetology training in 2003. In 2012 I got my barbers license to advance my men's haircut techniques. I have also had extensive training in haircutting by Bumble and Bumble, Toni and Guy, Paul Mitchell, Deva Curl, as well as learning from all the talented coworkers I have had over the years. I have taken color training with Redken and Schwarzkopf which I have been loyal to using because of the predictability and lasting radiant color options to balance and enhance even the most drab locks. Outside of work I stare at people's heads everywhere I go wanting to snip this or color that. It's something I can't control and I love to make people feel good and educate them on the best products for what they need and how to maintain and have fun with their hair while not having to spend too much time on it when they could be out loving life. Outside of the salon I am also a Holistic Health Coach and Nutritionist. I am very passionate about guiding people to find their healthy balance with their relationships to all the great things life has to offer. I also a very grateful and proud mama to my almost 4 year old daughter and I spend most of my down time (Haha!) playing, crafting, yoga and fantasizing about travel.
