From a young age, I harbored a passion for the artistry of hair design. Like so many other little girls, I would dress up my dolls but most
importantly, I would naturally style their hair! I taught myself to French braid at age 8!! There was something about twisting and pinning and
fluffing hair that excited me. My passion for hair design has allowed me to excel in my career at a very swift pace- after obtaining my license in 2007, I shortly there after became a color educator for Keune Hair Cosmetics- studying in Atlanta and Amsterdam, attended many hair classes including the famous Updo Guru- Martin Parsons, KellGrace, Stephanie Brinkerhoff and am certified to do Great Lengths Hair Extensions. I also have airbrush training by TEMPTU. Weddings, specifically, captured my interest because there's nothing I love more than the styling aspect of the hair industry. To keep up with the latest and most desired trends, I too follow many influential trendsetters and attend workshops to stay on top of whats new and requested while also creating my own designs for a more personal touch. I am a hopeless romantic at heart and thrive for the magic that weddings bring which is why your wedding day is extremely important to me. To be able to help dazzle a bride or young lady for her big day is more fulfilling and rewarding than any other facet of my industry! I love and feel honored to be included in the heart of the memories created on your special day!
Unlike most people, or like most people, I had no idea what I wanted to be when I grew up. I was a tom boy, who knew nothing about “fashion” and didn’t wear makeup until I was in my 20‘s. As a young adult I had always been artistic and enjoyed working with my hands. I always knew I would do something creative, but it wasn't until my family purchased a salon that I realized what that something would be. During a launch event for a new product line, the owner of the supply company pulled me aside to ask me when and where I went to school? I hadn’t... YET. He told me I was a natural and it was at that moment I decided I would attend cosmetology school. I discovered I truly had a passion for styling hair, creating unique looks, and manipulating hair texture in different ways to create a work of art. Since Graduating in 2008, I have taken many Hands-on Workshops with International Artists such as Updo Guru, Martin Parsons and Brian Grieve & Tracey Smith. To brush up on my skills and stay current with the trends, I take On-line Tutorials and follow Blogs by some of the most influential trendsetters in this Industry such as Stephanie Brinkerhoff and Mustafa Avci! I view each and every head of hair as a new canvas and feel so lucky I get to "Do what I Love and Love What I Do"... Make you look your best!!
