I started my career at the ripe old age of 17 and I’ve only gotten older from there. A majority of my career has been spent growing my skills as a colorist, however, I recently fell in love with cutting again through learning the art of the straight razor and revisiting classic haircutting skills.
My tastes juxtapose between classic geometric shapes (think 60’s Vidal Sassoon style bobs, blunt fringes, and avant-garde lines/details) and grungy, soft, lived-in looks (like Freja Beha Erichsen meets Courtney Love). Since so much of my foundation was built on creating color, I live for finding ways to accent your haircut with a color that fits your lifestyle.
I pride myself on creating highlights/dimension that require minimal upkeep (4-6+ months between appointments) as well as helping clients embrace and celebrate their natural texture.
When not working, I’m hanging with my awesome kid, my rad husband and our two cats. I also enjoy binge-watching food and eating Netflix, or something to that extent.
