Cosmetologist

Before I took to the beauty industry, I always had a knack for wanting to make others feel amazing about themselves. I also loved experimenting with my friends' hair when I was younger. So it seemed to me when you add the two together, you become a stylist. Creating a comfortable, inviting and safe environment is always my goal. Whether it be with friends and family or with my team and clients. Education is just as important for the sake of growing as a professional. That's what I train my team on - is growing and never stopping. Ask me why I do what I do... and I'll say, "it's all for the love of the art."

Esthetician

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.

Cosmetologist

What started your passion for this industry?
As I approached middle school, my friends would always ask me to do their hair. "What do you want me to with it,” I would ask. Their responses were always the same "do whatever you want!", so I took every experience and chance. That’s when my passion was ignited - I knew ‘beauty’ was my true passion. I graduated from Thomaston High School in 2002, and then went on to Northwestern Community College. I studied general business. That only lasted for several semesters before realized in my heart, I wanted to pursue beauty. I attended Torrington Beauty Academy, graduating after one year in 2003.

Following that, I obtained my first job that same year. While at my first job, my boss recognized my talent, and helped me finesse my technique and skills; helping me hone in on my weak points and strong areas and making them stronger. She also guided me in the art of barbering.

In January 2017, I started my new journey at Salon Square and I could not be happier or ask for a better environment to express my creativity. The salon is a beautiful, welcoming space and a great place for my clients to relax and enjoy being pampered. I want to thank my team; Kurt, Michael, Erica, and Jesse for making me feel welcomed.

What do you love most about your career?

One of the best feelings about being a stylist is making people feel good about themselves. I love watching the whole process come to fruition and the look of delight on a clients face! Most importantly, I treasure building relationships with my clients. They are much more than just "clients", they are family.

A message for new clients?

"I was born to recreate; my passion is the hair!"
