I became a stylist out of curiosity and kept that alive by continually pushing my craft to a new level.
Growing up in the sleepy mountain town of Prescott, Arizona, I thought I needed to have a particular career to live a successful life. Accounting, graphic design, nothing was fitting until I walked into this world of hair on a whim. I enrolled that day and discovered that even though I am relentlessly structured, I crave a decent amount of creativity and flexibility. Twenty-plus years later, I spent time educating myself on this beautiful industry's artistic and business aspects. I have found hair to be secondary, I love to see people soar, and a great color can make you feel like you can take on anything.
Over the years, I have taken on plenty! A tiny peanut of a preemie daughter in 2000, being a mom, wife, and even a USA Swim official. Who knew that last one was even a thing? Thanks to my brilliant daughter, I have adopted some of genuinely unique hobbies- Fandoms, Comic-Con. Yes, you read that. Tiny dogs (I swore I would never!) This has reinforced my belief that everything is an evolution, and your style should be too. I pride myself on constantly pushing my skills to find what will make my clients feel their best.
My current clients love the in-depth consultations with every visit and the fantastic finished looks almost as much as the genuinely decadent shampoo experience.
