Reno Hair Stylist

   Q: How long have you been a stylist and what are your educational bragging rights? 

A:  I have been a stylist for about 8 years. I am Paul Mitchell trained and I’m super thankful for that because I got some rad experiences in hair school. I got to assist some pretty awesome people in styling, cutting, and coloring classes. I’ve been lucky enough to do hair for a few fashion shows And photoshoots for companies like Stio. I am also certified in Bellami Hair extensions and they are my favorite thing to do in the salon!

   Q: What do you love about your craft?

A:  I love that I get to make people feel good about themselves. It’s the best feeling to see their faces light up at the end of their appointment.

   Q: What have you learned from your clients?

A:  I’ve learned that sometimes people just need someone to be a good listener. Whether it’s during the consultation or throughout the appointment, sometimes people just need to get it out! It’s a huge part of the job. And I appreciate being able to be the one they feel comfortable enough to chat with!

   Q: What do you specialize in? 

A:  I love color and extensions!

   Q: What are the upcoming trends in hair cutting, coloring, and products?

A:  I think some of the trends in hairstyling are big ole braids, natural-looking, but beautiful hair, and a more natural approach to hair color and products in general. Less animal testing, more natural options as far as color and products go. I also think extensions are huge right now. Whether it's for volume or length who doesn’t want to have Lucious locks?!

   Q: What should clients look for when they are shopping for a stylist? 

A: Someone who listens !! A thorough consultation is key! It is so important to both be on the same page before anything! Also, personalities are huge. Gotta have good vibes, sometimes we spend hours and hours together! I like to think it’s like hanging out with a good friend. You should look forward to your appointment! Appointments should be an enjoyable and relaxing experience. Treat yo self! 

   Q: Where do you find inspiration?

A:  I find inspiration in nature mostly. There are so many beautiful things in the world it’s rad to be able to take it all in and apply it to my craft daily. I totally nerd out on hair videos and tutorials nightly, I’m not going to lie. I love watching what other stylists are doing and learning from everyone I possibly can! 

   Q: What charitable organizations do you feel passionate about?

A: Carestream! It’s a wonderful charity my good friend started back home in Vegas. She completely remodeled an Airstream trailer, and turned it into a mobile salon! It gives us the ability to go anywhere and help the less fortunate. It’s amazing to be able to change someone’s day with a simple haircut. 

   Q: How do you spend your time when not knee deep into your craft?

A: I'm usually with my little family outside somewhere! We have a perfect little daughter and love taking her on little adventures!

   Q: Why are professional hair care products important?

A: Your hair is an investment. So whatever you decide to put in that investment should better it, right? 

   Q: What is your favorite shade of lipstick?

A: Wicked by limecrime!!
