HAIR STYLIST

I have been in the incredible hair industry for 26 years and I love everything about it.  I am addicted to continuing my education.  I have attended many cutting and coloring classes from NY to California and everywhere in between.  I even attended a Vidal Sassoon class in London.  4 years ago I followed my dream of opening my own salon.  Along the way I have pursued a few other dreams of mine.  I did hair for New York Fashion week twice, I assisted on the set of “So You Think You Can Dance”, did hair for a short film, and recently became a Pravana color educator.  I love teaching but my first love will always be doing hair behind the chair.  I love doing color corrections and creating a cut that flatters my guests.  So come see me and we can go on a hair journey together.
