I love the connection I am able to make with clients. I have always loved getting to know people and what makes them happy, and now I am blessed to have a career where I can listen to people and their needs, making them feel good about themselves from the inside out. I am great at curly/ textured hair; layers: long, short, crazy, blended– I love them all. I live for movement but can give a solid, blunt, structured cut as well, as I respect precision and the attention to detail that comes with it. I am crazy about balayage/ hair painting! It is a technique that gives dimension, natural or bold, without the use of a foil. It allows me to be extra visual and creative. I enjoy stepping out of the box with clients and creating a look that helps their unique characteristics radiate. I appreciate natural beauty and love giving hair or makeup that perfect touch to simply enhance what is already there. I get inspired by nature, art, kids, and music.
