Where are you from? How long have you lived in the Valley?
Although I was born in Minnesota (where most of my extended family is), I spent all but a few months of my life outside of Arizona. I love living in Arizona!
I specialize in color, extensions, and Brazilian Blowouts. I was an educator for Brazilian Blowout and still work with our staff to show the right way to do them. There is definitely a wrong way - so make sure your stylist is educated before getting a Brazilian Blowout!
When it comes to color, I tend to be fearless. Recently one of my favorite adventurous clients wanted to "look like a mermaid" - it was so much fun.
Which is your favorite service or technique and why?
Hair extensions are my favorite! It truly is beauty in 15 minutes. I have worked with many types of extensions, but tape-in (real human hair) are in my opinion the best.
I LOVE hummingbirds. They remind me of my mom. Whenever a hummingbird flies by me, I will stop what I am doing to watch.
What would you do if you weren’t a stylist?
Although I love what I do and cannot imagine doing anything else, I often think about being a full-time stay at home mom. My kids are my world so I am glad that my career gives me the flexibility to be there for them.
What’s your secret talent?
I can balance on my head. [Note: It is estimated that only 1% of the population can effectively do this without support. It is great for circulation - especially for those who are on their feet all day.]
What’s the best advice you can give someone in your chair?
I see myself as a consultant when it comes to hair. So the most important thing you can do when sitting in my chair is for you to TRUST ME. I want you to look and feel fabulous.
