About

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 I 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 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.

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, have taught blonding education classes and updo and styling classes, 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 magazines and hairstyling books.  I have trained and worked among some of the top 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.    I love the outdoors and am a huge advocate for doing my part to protect the environment which is why I have chosen to use an organic and vegan hair color by Simply Organic Beauty.  For the beauty of your hair, the environment and my own health.

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.)
