From an early age, some would say that I was destined to become a hairstylist. I could often be found on the front porch brushing my dad’s hair and painting his face. He loved the attention and always fell asleep on me. I also have fond memories of giving my stuffed animals and dolls makeovers and haircuts. I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio where I also went to Urbana University for a year before realizing that computer science wasn’t my forte. I wanted to make an impact on people’s lives. Taking my strengths into consideration, I decided to pursue becoming a cosmetologist.
I moved to St. Louis, Missouri in 2014 to attend The Paul Mitchell school of Cosmetology, my dream school. After graduating, I was blessed to have been chosen to work at Strands, a highly prestigious salon in St. Louis. During the 2 years I worked there, I took advantage of the many opportunities to take classes and learn from top educators in the industry. My favorites include: Nick Arrojo, who worked on the tv show “What Not To Wear;” Debra Dietrich, who is a top educator for Paul Mitchell and did hair for the movie “Milk,” and many, many more.
In 2018, I moved to Columbia, Missouri to pursue another dream of getting married and building a family. I’m now happily married and I’m slowly growing my family, beginning with my four-legged fur pup.
As a stylist, my mission is to listen to my clients, educate them, and to deliver a result that has them looking and feeling fabulous. I want people to feel as though they can escape life’s difficult realities while they are in my chair. Although I thoroughly enjoy all aspects of my career, my favorite parts of my job include scalp massages, braiding hair, and, most importantly, the ability to meet and build relationships with people from all walks of life. In addition to my favorite aspects of my career, I enjoy my unique specialties within our salon. I specialize in Deva Curl Haircutting Technique, Brazilian Blowout Treatments, DreamCatchers Hair Extensions, Halo Couture Extensions, and Yuko Thermal Straightening services. Furthermore, I like the versatility that hairstyling creates and I’m ready to take on any challenges that come my way!
