From a very early age I was mesmerized by all things beauty. My mother had a friend who was a hairstylist, so naturally we spent a lot of time in her salon. Being with my mom at her hair appointments and seeing all the women in the salon made me take notice of how confident women seemed to be after getting their hair done. I got my first set of highlights when I was 8, and just like those women, I felt like a brand new woman!
After trying out nursing school and finding that it wasn't for me, I knew I wanted to feel rewarded and fulfilled. Thinking back to how those women looked like they felt so confident, I wanted to make people feel the same way. I decided to enroll in cosmetology school. Anytime I worked on a client, I thought about that feeling. This drive to put my heart and soul into what I do really allowed me to excel in school. I was part of the advanced placement program while in school, got my cosmetology degree in 2011, and it's history from there.
I am absolutely in love with doing anything with hair but specifically my passion is in blonding and bridal styling. I love the dimension you see in hair when going lighter just as much as I love turning the chair around to reveal to a client a new transformation, a wedding style or even a blowout.
When I'm not working I'm usually spending time with my two young children. They're both high energy boys who challenge me! My oldest tells me I have the best job because it makes me happy. I love that he, even at the young age of 6, realizes how much joy my career brings me.
The relationships I build with my clients and their trust in my ability to make their hair dreams a reality are what I cherish the most about my work.
