Hello! I am a hairsytlist on the South Hill of Spokane, WA. I work for myself in a beautiful 2 chair studio salon and absolutely LOVE IT! If you follow me on Instagram you can tell my passion is Balayage, Hand Tied Extensions, Bridal hair and Textured haircuts! Aside from working behind the chair I am an educator for Masters of Balayage and travel to teach stylists new balayages techniques! I work weekly in the salon Monday Tuesday and Wednesdays and would love to meet you and create some Gorgeous Hair. Please contact me if you have any questions and keep on reading if you'd like to learn a little more about me! Take care and I hope to see you soon!
So how did I get started in the beauty industry?
Like most stylist's I grew up with a knack for hair. Braids, twists, curling irons, hot rollers, perms you name it! If someone wanted their hair done, I was all over it. It was a creative outlet for me which is why I loved it! After high school I pursued psychology (earning a Bachelor of Science in Health Psychology from Bastyr University)-and even pursued Nursing-but soon after felt the need to nurture my creative side. Thats when I began looking into hairdressing. I soon learned that Toni and Guy Hairdressing Academy would be opening a new location in Bellingham, Wa. After touring the school I knew it was the perfect fit.
Since graduating, I have been a working hairstylist for 10 years. I have attended many continuing educational classes, primarily in California, including color classes, balayage classes and 4 day updo class. I have also taken a few haircutting courses (one from celebrity hairstylist Nick Arrojo). My newest venture is that of hair extensions! I took a class in Hand Tied Extensions and offer extension services as well.
I've been featured in Modern Salon Magazine twice for two separate hair competitions and am an Artist Conenctive Member for Modern salon as well. Other features include Instagram features from- Behind the Chair, Modern Salon, Masters of Balayage, Best of Balayage, Cosmoprof and a few others! Staying educated is a huge part of my success and I strive to stay current on new trends and techniques while providing a current profile of my work on Instagram!
