HOW CAN I HELP YOU?
It is my purpose to help people along their journey to personal hair satisfaction while creating enjoyable and meaningful relationships with members of my community.
The very best hair is created when technique meets teamwork.
An in depth consultation provides a general understanding of your hair’s texture, density, and health. We will then add into the mix your lifestyle, budget, current styling skills and desired looks to paint a better picture of what is realistic. Pictures or Pintrest boards are always helpful to clarify descriptions. You can trust me to be honest with opinions and as informative about the process as you’d like.
Feedback is helpful--Don’t be shy! Did you love it or did you spend the last 6 weeks hating me? Let me learn from that! The more I know the better I can work with you and your hair. A client-stylist relationship takes time to create and effort to maintain. After doing hair this long my first guess is pretty spot on and if it isn’t, I feel confident I can improve our results if given the opportunity. You can trust me to be there for you and your hair needs.
Haircuts for Curly and Heavily Textured Hair:
I have almost 20 years of experience with cutting and working with a large variety of curly hair.
I am very comfortable and skilled with curly and textured hair from many different ethnicities and lots in between. That means wavy and curly hair, African, Polynesian, Asian, Latino, Jewish, European and all combinations of ‘mixed-girl hair’. I shape the hair curl by curl into a flattering silhouette for your face shape. I dry cut the hair to make sure we are respecting the curls natural fall and bounce. I do not subscribe to one cutting method or styling method, I believe in using whatever combination of techniques get us to the result that best suits you. I use a combination of techniques honed over years of working with curly hair from around the globe. I understand how important the products and the ingredients are and I know for a fact that no two heads of hair are the same.
Haircuts for Everyone:
Razor cuts, super thick hair, unique shapes, men's scissor cuts, angled bobs, shags, you name it and I can probably figure out how to cut it so that it suits you! It's my job to translate your #hairgoals into a look that works for you today and keeps you on the path to your best hair experience. I am classically trained and then real life trained, so I am not afraid to step in and out of the box to achieve your best cut.

COLORS AND RETEXTURIZING
Chemical Texturizing Services
From curly to straight and back again. I specialize in chemical retexturizing services like Japanese Straightening, Keratin Smoothing Treatments, Relaxers, Perms and am continuously researching new products.
I am trained in all of the newest trends including balayage, ombre, sombre, balayombre, pintura lights and anything in between. I have a ton of experience working with hair that is naturally very dark. Always wanted to go blonde and not orange? I can help with that. If you want it and your hair is capable of getting there, I am willing. The integrity of the hair is my greatest concern. Beautiful haircolor is best on healthy hair!
Styling and Weddings: I enjoy styling and updos. I do weddings upon request and am available for on location events.
