I have been hair stylist since 2005 – 

My interest for doing hair peaked from art and creativity. What better way to make a career where you can be artistic! When I became licensed, I started apprenticing at two salons. One in Minden and one here in South Lake Tahoe. I did this for a few years before taking on my own clients. I learned a great deal from several amazing and talented stylists. I have taken several courses over the years and have been educated by many leaders in the industry such as Aveda, Wella, Schwarzkopf, Redken, Surface, Deva Curl, Davines and many others.

Although I can and do almost anything hair related I am more interested in working with hairs natural texture and more what it wants to do. I don’t believe in fighting or forcing the hair. I like more of a bohemian natural look. Easy and lived in hair. I do more and more curly work these days leaving the hair in its natural curl or wavy form. I also love to do effortless sun kissed looks with free handed painting techniques. If this is your look and style, I am the girl for you.

The hair industry is an ever changing career with a continuing learning path that always keeps it fun and interesting. I love what I do and the most I get from this is making who ever is in my chair happy. Even as something as simple as leaving with a better understanding about their hair (help with styling, natural curl texture, scalp care, finding the right eco friendly products that work, color consults, etc.) If they leave my salon feeling good about themselves is what it’s all about.
