Who I AM
I am a fun-loving, talented stylist. I give you my experience and heart.
After High School my hair journey started with an opportunity for me to be a “shampoo girl” in a small Charlottesville salon. I apprenticed with the salon owner and became a licensed cosmetologist. With years of hard work and dedication to my craft, I now consider myself a Master Stylist. I am committed to knowing more, doing more and being one of the best.
So far, I have an amazing life because of my career. My son Dylan, is in his first year at JMU and has had all the best I could give with being a hairstylist. I miss him terribly every day. Looking back, I got to participate in his sporting activities, go to rowing competitions, football games, countless practices. Those were the days! NOW…as a young empty nester……..I work hard, play hard and love people. My days are spent with my clients having a little fun, and doing lots of hair. In my free time I have a home that is truly a retreat. In the mornings I drink coffee on my front porch , say a little prayer, add to my gratitude list and start my day from there. After work you can find me wearing earbuds listening to a podcast while drawing in my sketchbook, or reading a James Patterson mystery. I love to walk on trails and look at the beautiful local landscape along the way. Who could ask for more?
The secret to my daily success is Laughter. I am easy going, light hearted and love to smile! Sometimes I listen to stand up comedy on the way to work. I have a big sense of humor and a quick wit. I crave laughter, and hope to help each client smile.
In my studio I am good at helping with hair woes. I enjoy working with clients to find solutions for hair problems. I am confident with any hair discussion, and thrive with clients who like classic tasteful looks. I do not take big risks with my clients hair, as I believe going with what you naturally have works best. I am a conservative and consistent stylist. We all get bored…. So believe me, I can find a way to add a splash of fun!
After starting my own business in 2018, I knew my plan was to serve in a smaller capacity. I wanted to be home more, and serve like minded family focused clients. I want to know my clients personally. Having this holistic approach gives me more insight into clients lives, therefore, more opportunity to help with beauty decisions. I collaborate, discuss, and ask questions to find the right path. The elevated personal hair experience is the vibe in my studio. I am here for you.
