I love taking a client to a new beauty world; one where they're the star. I want all my clients to walk out feeling and looking the best they possibly can. When I do any service on a client I want them to feel comfortable telling me what their challenges are so I can help show solutions. I love doing big changes for clients if that's what they desire, or if they prefer a look that is easy to maintain, I am more than happy to do that as well. During our consultation I’ll walk you through all the ways we can achieve your desired look, and we'll choose the best solution for you and your lifestyle!
Outside of the salon, in whatever free time I have, I like to read, paint, throw on the pottery wheel, do yoga, run, crafts, and explore photography. Spending time outdoors in all seasons is incredibly important to me, because I feel a breath of fresh air and a cup of tea can relieve a lot of life's stresses. There are very few things in life I don’t find inspirational, some things I find very stimulating are art, nature, architecture, fashion, and history. I love looking to new and old fashion for inspiration. Older trends can tell us a lot about what will be happening later, and what's going to be on trend coming up. Creating looks similar to older trends fascinate me because people used to live so simply…not knowing which tools to use for what styles. Now that we have this education and knowledge I feel it is important for us, the beauty industry, to share this information with our clients. I am so excited to be in a field where I am not only able to, but encouraged to, educate my clients on what looks, styles, and products are best for them!
