DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN ONE WORD.
. . . . . Gentle.

WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
. . . . . Instagram! I follow hundreds of amazing stylists so my feed is saturated with hair images… and cat photos. Observing other stylists inspires me to try a new method or gives me creative ideas to achieve on my clients.

WHAT’S THE ONE HAIR CARE TOOL YOU CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT?
. . . . . HAIRSPRAY!

DID YOU ALWAYS WANT TO BE A STYLIST?
. . . . . When I was really young my mom would take me with her to her perm appointment and the stylist would let me assist by handing perm rods and papers to her. Around the age of 12 I started experimenting with hair color on my best friend and she was bold enough to demand I try cutting her hair! I’ve always been interested in hair & beauty, but it wasn’t until I started hair school when I realized, “Yes, this is what I’m meant to do!”

WHAT IS THE BEST PART ABOUT YOUR JOB?
. . . . . The wonderful people I work with and making my clients look and feel amazing!
