I am honored to accept a position as a stylist at Pretty Hair Salon! I have been in the industry for over a decade. I am excited to have my career flourish along with a team of very talented stylists.

My forefront is art. Every client who sits in my chair is my canvas. A canvas, which with my expertise and creativity, I can master the perfect production of locks that will keep the client satisfied. My clients are very special to me. I will go above and beyond to make your salon experience amazing! I specialize in color, cuts, barbering, styling, makeup and bridal designs. My hair color techniques range from basic root retouches, balayage/ombres, highlights/low lights and vivids. Barbering techniques are one of my favorites along with color. I have learned the artistry of skin fades, pompadours, the “gentleman cut”, undercuts with free-hand designs and beard trimming. There is no limit to what I want to accomplish behind the chair. I love the challenge of perfecting the right look for each individual client.

Continuing education is very important to me and I am ecstatic that I belong to a salon where education and training is implemented. I have always been involved with continuing education classes to sharpen my skills. I have been to Paul Mitchell’s NYC Hair Show and to Cincinnati for Wells’s own creative artist Nick Arroyo. I have used an array of color lines starting with Paul Mitchell, Wella, Matrix, Soroples, Kenra, Redken, Pravana and a few others.

In my spare time I draw portraits, paint and participate in community events that help support varying organizations. I thank you for reading my bio and I look forward to making your acquaintance in my chair!
