Passionate, excited, and determined to be one of the best at what I do! Hair is the most amazing accessory one can manipulate and showcase. Whether long or short, full or fine, hair allows you to make an identity that speaks for who you are without saying a word!
Looking back over my childhood, I can recollect being intrigued with styling various family members’ hair. I was always left fascinated by the transformation hair made in one’s overall appearance. After moving to Atlanta, GA, in the summer of 2006 to attend Clark Atlanta University, I knew I was going to take advantage of the South in more ways than one. Pursuing a degree in Public Relations, while simultaneously assisting in a salon, seemed ideal. My goal was to not be the average salon stylist–I needed to understand people, relationships, branding, as well as have in-depth training to achieve my various goals.
After graduating from Clark Atlanta University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Mass Communication with an emphasis in Public Relations, I knew my schooling was not done. Only this time it would be at Gene Juarez Academy–one of the top cosmetology schools located in Seattle, WA, where I am originally from. I obtained a great wealth of knowledge at Gene Juarez Academy. Although I hadn’t had many years of experience working in the hair industry, I still had a keen eye for details to know what looks amazing and how to create new techniques to achieve these various looks! With big dreams and aspirations, I moved to Hollywood, CA, to implement the teachings I received from both educational institutions.
Since residing in Los Angeles, CA, I have had the pleasurable opportunity of styling hair for Fashion Week LA, The Golden Globes Awards, NAACP Image Awards, various photo-shoots, commercials, a short film, television shows’ Hollywood Ex’s, Mr. Box Office, and The First Family. I am also a hairstylist on the National Style Squad for Soft-Sheen Carson/L’Oreal.
I entered in to the industry with my feet running–building a clientele and establishing set-work/editorial opportunities is my on-going effort! I specialize in cutting, styling, extensions, and coloring.
