Hi. A bit about me-
I didn’t always know I wanted to be a hairstylist, it just happened. I was finishing up my prerequisites for bio-chem with an art minor. (I know, they don’t really go together and I really had no idea how I would make them either.) I was accepted in to the bio-chem program and at the last minute decided I didn’t want to be cooped up in a lab so backed out and applied to a couple of art schools. I was accepted into art school around the same time I met a hairstylist and salon and day spa owner. Over the course of a year we became good friends, saw what he did with hair and looked at it as a medium for art. I realized that is what I wanted to do and signed up for cosmetology school.
After hair school I went through an apprenticeship for 12 months at a high end salon in Phoenix. I am internationally trained, learned Vidal Sassoon cutting by some of the top educators, was a Bumble and bumble session stylist in Phoenix, trained with L’oreal Professionnel color educators currently use L’oreal Professionnel color (among others), was an updo and styling educator at a high end salon, and much more. I have been on several Arizona news channels many times doing makeovers and educating viewers on hair care. I have styled hair for NYFW, session and styling for editorial and runway, cut and colored high profile clients, celebrities and athletes and am looking forward to many more of these opportunities. I have also had work published in “100 Awesome Hair Days” by Jenny Strebe. Ongoing education is essential to stay on top of the trends. I have trained and worked among some of the top independent educators in the industry and continue to further my education.
My inspiration comes from the beauty nature holds and is in each one of us. Each of us has our own uniqueness and I love to work with it and make your hair work for you. My amazing son is always in inspiration to remind me of the child in all of us and to look at the world with child like eyes.
I hold a current license in Arizona, California and Utah. You can find me in Scottsdale, AZ, Gold and Braid Salon in Mission Viejo, CA and Mane Muse Salon in Sun Valley, ID or on the road traveling with classes and photoshoots (to book an appointment click here.)
