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 and Creating Movement in hair utilizing subtle layering techniques. Aside from working behind the chair, I am an educator for Masters of Balayage, teaching stylists new balayage techniques. I work weekly in the salon Monday Tuesday and Wednesday and would love to meet you and create some beautiful hair. Please contact me if you have any questions and keep on reading if you'd like to learn a little more about myself. Take care and I hope to see you soon!
So how did I get started in the beauty industry?
Like most hairstylist's I grew up with a knack for hair. 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 & Spirituality from Bastyr University)-and even pursued Nursing-but soon after felt the need to follow 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 11 years. I have attended many continuing education classes, including color classes, balayage, hair cutting and a class on hand tied extensions.
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 motivation and I strive to stay current on new trends and techniques while providing a current profile of my work on Instagram.
Whether you're needing a Balayage, a Cut and Color, or Hand Tied Extensions, My Studio is the place for you and please feel free to email me if you have any questions!
