The Artist
As a professional, the most frequent comment I hear from new clients is "My last hairdresser just wouldn't do what I asked for."  Or I might hear "I bought a product, upon my stylist's recommendation, but they failed to explain why or how to use it." 
Well, let me assure you I'm a different kind of stylist. With over 23 years of experience, I've come to understand these scenarios can be very frustrating. That is why I take the time to hear what you are hoping for then together create a plan to accomplish the look and feel you want.
We will discuss how you style your hair and determine what you like and dislike about your hair during our consultation. I'll ask questions like, "do you want a textured look, more or less volume, or a little or a lot of movement?"  We will discuss tonality, shadows, effects, dimensions, and placement of highlights if we're adding color or doing highlights. 
During your service, I'll also educate you on the products I'm using, what you can expect from them, and how to use them. Through education, you'll be able to make better decisions about what you may or may not need. Lastly, I use only the highest quality products so you can be sure you'll get a natural, vibrant, lasting color you're sure to love! 
I understand your hair is a reflection of your personality and together we can determine the color or cut that compliment's your personal style. Through experience and my passion for hair, I want to earn your business and hopefully enjoy a lasting relationship where you'll share your satisfaction with friends and family.
