ML Team



Starting off my journey as a beauty expert, I studied exclusively with a few product lines. I always knew that being exclusive with a brand would give me the opportunity to offer my clients 100% knowledge of not only their hair, but also the products that could enhance and maintain their look. I have trained my shear edge by attending principles of hair cutting courses and learning where each hair lives on the head. This allows me to offer my clients a precision haircut or an edgy razored cut. I continue my education daily; I believe that everyday I can learn something new. Because color is so creative and always changing, I attend all advanced classes through the AVEDA Institute and now the REDKEN EXCHANGE. Thus, my clients are able to sit in my chair and get a shine infused glaze or creative session of multi-tonal color enhancement. My passion for hair is what has driven me to open a salon…to have my vision of beauty be put into the world by my own staff.

“I live and breathe hair and the beauty it offers all of us…stay beautiful.”
