I don't remember having an "a-ha!" moment when I decided to become a hairstylist, I just knew. From playing "Beauty Shop" with my little brother to having all of my dolls be "confident clients" of mine; being an amazing hairstylist has always been my passion.
My colorful journey began in Southern California training with Pivot Point and Redken. After becoming a licensed cosmetologist, I started my apprenticeship at one of the top salons in Orange County - working with artists from Vidal Sassoon, Redken, Paul Mitchell and Goldwell. I became a successful independent contractor with a fully booked clientele and simultaneously worked on movie sets, fashion shows and editorial/photo shoots. Wanting to share my knowledge and energy, I began giving in-depth training sessions for my apprentices. Seven years flew by fast, but I knew this was just the beginning. I began to work in San Francisco while flying back to Southern California one week a month - fully booked in both places.
After a decade of doing hair on the West Coast, a new opportunity came knocking at my door eight time zones away: London! I worked at one of the top salons in the UK (Headmasters' flagship location). Within four months, I became the salon's Redken Expert and got promoted to Master Stylist and Technical Color Consultant. In addition, I took some of the most innovative courses at the L'Oreal International Academy and assisted at London Fashion Week.
My sincerity, technical proficiency and unique ability to connect with others have kept me in demand behind the chair in the US and abroad for over 11 years. Currently, I run my own one-chair salon in downtown Chicago, and travel back and forth to NYC frequently. Recently, I became a Redken Design Certified Stylist and a Redken Certified Colorist.
