Before I took to the beauty industry, I always had a knack for wanting to help others really enjoy their time with me. I am a secret introvert but when the fit is right, we cackle and solve world issues (as my clients love to say). I never thought I would be able to help other's see on the outside how they want to see themselves. I enjoy the creativity with formulating and color blends but to me, it's about creating a safe environment for my clients. Whether they are a talker, someone going through something, or non-verbal, I just want the experience to be safe for everyone. I'm a weirdo, wild and alternative so I have a soft spot for those like me.
I'm a gamer, a dog parent and a good listener. If you think we'd be a good fit, I'd love to have you sit with me!
What started your passion for this industry?
My fascination for beauty began at a young age so there was no question of the career I wanted to pursue. I started my journey at Brio Academy of Cosmetology, where I completed the cosmetology program. After working at a few salons, I found Salon Square. I've grown more than I could have at my past locations. I've built into myself a want and need for education – not only for myself but for my clients.
After a couple of years focusing on haircutting and coloring, other areas in the industry sparked my interest. I then added my focuses onto skin care and nails as well and completed the aesthetics and nail program at Belle Academy of Cosmetology. Afterwards I was presented the opportunity to educate for the Nail program where I continued my education.
What kind of style do you have?
I'd say my style is very avante garde, dark, and whimsical. I always love learning what's new in the beauty world. It's amazing to offer change to your clients and that's what I really am into.
What are your specialties?
A challenge is never a bad thing for me – I love them. It really puts my knowledge and creativity to the test. I mean how else are you supposed to grow? Color correction, blonding, and super fun vivid/unicorn hair are my specialties.
A message for new clients?
Come spend some time with me, spoil yourself so we can have a great experience together.
