Having grown in a small tight knit community, I have a strong focus on building relationships with everyone I meet. I strive to bring balance between comfort and glam. Passion and vision combine together to create a unique personalized style for everyone.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A STYLIST?
I´ve been doing hair and makeup for four years. A year and a half professionally!
WHY DID YOU WANT TO BECOME A STYLIST?
One day when I was a little girl I went to my local hair salon. I was super nervous because I was getting a lot chopped off that day. (You know the basic bob haircut every child gets in there life). Anyways, I remember meeting my hairstylist for the first time. I had to be patient in the waiting area because she was running a little behind. She then proceeded to hand me a Vogue magazine. I didn’t really read as a kid so I started to flip through the pages vastly. All I can remember in the magazine was seeing so many different styles of hair and makeup. It was a new realm of creativity I have discovered. A couple minutes went by and my stylist called my name. I studied her closely. She was a super spunky older woman with curly hair and wore a cheetah print top with a lot of neon print accessories. Now, I grew up in a small community and never would you see anyone drop dead in anything like that. So she then started to cut my hair and I mean she really started to cut my hair. She was cutting with so much passion, and while she was cutting she kept on talking to me and making me feel awesome. I was super shy growing up and it took a lot out of me to say something to people sometimes but she made me feel special in a way. Once the service was over I thanked her tremendously and she told me to keep the magazine. I was so inspired by her look, her aura and her personality that I wanted to be a ¨cool¨ stylist someday and to make people feel beautiful with how they look. Now here I am doing what I love and I couldn’t be happier.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE HAIRDO OF ALL TIME?
My favorite hair would have to be doing some beachy waves or a soft romantic curl. The two looks are super in right now, and are actually quite quick and easy to achieve!
WHO IS YOUR CELEBRITY HAIR ICON?
Gwen Stefani for sure! She is one of the biggest icons in the beauty industry that I believe. Maybe it’s something to do with her beautiful blonde hair or red lipstick? Who knows. Catch me at the salon and i’ll probably be wearing a bold red lip inspired by the queen herself.
She is the most thorough and passionate stylist I have ever been to. What I really love about her is that she is always educating herself on the newest trends, and is not afraid of guiding me on my style. She loves being a stylist and helping people look their best, and it shows! She even did my hair for my wedding, and it was how I always imagined it.
As for the salon, it is adorable! You feel like you are in a high end salon in LA, without paying the LA price. All of the stylists are so fun and friendly, you really feel like part of a family. I drive from over an hour away to get my hair done, and it is totally worth it!
