BEHIND THE SCISSORS
I grew up loving to create, whether it was through paint, sewing or giving my sister her 1st haircut while I was just 2 years old. I always dreampt of combining my skills in art with business and one day being my own boss... and hair turned out to be the perfect fit!
Becoming a hairstylist was an ambition I realized sometime during middle school while playing with my sisters’ hair. After sidetracking to earn a degree in Fashion Design, I returned to my dream of becoming a hairstylist and I studied at Goldenwest College in Huntington Beach, California. I was the second place winner of the Hair Design Contest of my class. Since earning my license I’ve trained under the extension specialist, Jana Neser, and extensively trained and assisted under Karyn Ann Iachelli, a master colorist and extension specialist. I absolutely LOVE doing hair and have a passion for it that drives me every day to be the best. Always continuing my education, I take classes and keep up with trends, and of course, maintain my strong foundation. Because of my own obsession with hair, attention to detail, and genuine care, I aim to make my clients happy and feeling beautiful!
