I absolutely love not only making my guest’s hair look beautiful, I also love helping them to feel good about themselves. Great hair color and the right styling products can truly lift one’s spirit. During my consultation, I take into consideration my guest’s hairstyle, hair texture, skin tone, face shape and bone structure. I also inquire about their commitment to upkeep, as I want the color maintenance to fit into their lifestyle. All of these factors play in to creating a customized color formula and approach that meets my guest’s individual needs.
I am a proud participant in the Green Circle Salons Program. This program allows me to recycle unused hair color, foils, and the product packaging. When clients get a haircut; the hair is repurposed, NOT thrown away!
I am a master colorist and give a killer blowout! A great finish to a color service showcases the hair color beautifully. I am passionate about making my guests look beautiful and giving them a great experience while they’re in my chair.
