With almost 15 years under my belt, I pride myself in being adept in everything from basic to advanced coloring techniques and the most intricate principles behind hair design. I nurture my abilities through various avenues such as seminars, classes, webinars, and textbooks--anything I can wrap my brain around to bring my clients what they demand. I have always loved to learn, find I am fueled by a passion to create and succeed.
My latest areas of expertise are concentrated in specialty hair painting techniques such as Balayage (a French method of custom-painting highlights for a natural sun kissed effect) and the super trendy Ombré color effects sported by countless celebrities. Along with color, one of my biggest pasions is applying and maintaining hair extensions seamlessly and naturally. The stunning transformations I can create in just a couple of hours have often been life-changing for many of my clients and so very rewarding for me knowing I have given someone the confidence they were seeking. Dry, coarse frizz? I can take care of that with a retexturing treament to tame even the most unruly locks.
Over the years, my career has taken me across the country and afforded me the chance to receive training from renowned stylists such as "What Not to Wear" stylist Nick Arrojo, Candy Shaw, Beth Minardi, Guy Tang, and Tabatha Coffee. I've also worked with many local publications such as Portico, Birmingham Magazine, B-Metro, Southern Beauty magazine (contributing editor and editorial stylist), and was selected by the Perfect Wedding Guide to style Melissa Rycroft.
I'd have to say the biggest motivation for choosing this profession is instilling confidence in and inspiring people. I not only treasure the relationships I form with my clients, but also the relationships I develop with their hair. Each one is special, and must be nurtured and cultivated just like any other relationship. I have always had a very strong conviction when it comes to taking care of my clients. Without the client, the hairdresser would have no reason to be behind the chair, so I try to make each client know that they are valuable and appreciated.
