SPECIALTIES - NEW HIGHLIGHTING TECHNIQUES, LONG HAIR, LIVED IN COLOR
After watching my classmate help cut her Dad’s hair in 6th grade I knew I wanted to be a stylist one day.,My mom was so encouraging of my love for hair, that she would get me Mannequin head and wigs , but reminded me that I had to practice a LOT if I ever wanted a chance at doing hers.From that first mannequin, I was HOOKED!
For years I was in the medical field as a respiratory therapist ( therapist by day, hair artist by night) . I’ve always had a passion for making people feel better, but something was missing, so after moving to Chicago from California in 2012, I decided I wanted to finally go for my dream job full time.
I am a hair nerd. I take a class or tutorial at least once a month, and I love sharing what I learn with my clients. You’ve seen a new technique for coloring hair? I’m on it!
When I’m not at the salon, I love to spend time outside in the sun ( California girl for life) , taking care of my jungle of plants in my house, or watching the latest Netflix documentaries. I listen to a lot of audiobooks and podcasts on my commute to and from the salon, so if you have a recommendation, I’ll take it and we can talk about it the next time you’re in!
I may specialize in lived in color and blonding techniques, but I have a real eye for looking at the album of pictures my clients bring in, and figure out exactly what they want. I like to have a no pressure, relaxed approach to hair, while educating my clients how they can get their dream color and style . ++ I ALSO LIKE TO KEEP IT REAL WITH MY CLIENTS, SO SOME THINGS I DO NOT SPECIALIZE IN, AND WOULD SUGGEST FINDING A DIFFERENT STYLIST FOR ; PIXIE CUTS/ BOB HAIRCUTS AND DEVA CURL METHOD HAIRCUTS. My passion and specialty is Women’s hair, so I no longer take children or barber cut clients.
It makes my day to give each client a look they LOVE and showing them how easy it is to maintain at home, gives me life. So if you are ready to get the look you’ve been obsessing over, use the buttons at the bottom to contact me 🙂
