What do you love about your craft?
I love that I am able to always learn and be inspired, and also that I get to share that with my clients and peers, and in turn, inspire them! It's always so exciting! One of my favorite things that I love to do for my clients is to teach them how to recreate a hairstyle that I have given them.
What do you specialize in?
I am experienced in all types of hair color and cutting techniques, however, I specialize in creating beautifully blended and dimensional hair color and cutting with movement and enhancing natural texture. I also specialize in bridal and special occasion makeup.
What are the up coming treads in hair cutting, coloring and products?
I am seeing a lot of individuality in hair styling and coloring. Not everyone is wanting the exact same looks, and it's fabulous! It's all about loose, lived-in texture!
What should clients look for when they are shopping for a stylist?
My best advice for clients who are shopping for a stylist is to find someone who listens to you. Its our job! A thorough consultation is the only way to ensure that you are getting the best service that we can provide!
Where do you find inspiration?
I find a lot of inspiration in nature. I love the natural variation in every shade of color! No two shades of green are the exact same. I also regularly look to the runway and editorial print work to get an idea of what the fashion trends will be.
How do you spend your time when not knee deep into your craft? (hobbies)
I am a big socialite! I love getting together with my friends and checking out all the fun new stuff our lovely city has to offer! I also love to cook and entertain!
Why are professional hair care products important?
I truly believe in professional hair care. I prescribe the appropriate products to meet the needs of my clients and also to ensure they get longevity out of their hair color and are able to style their hair beautifully!
What is you favorite shade of lipstick?
You will usually catch me with bare lips but if I have a shade on, it's usually a pretty nude tone!
