What's in it for you

So, what do I have to offer? I have 15+ years experience in this industry. I absolutely can say that I love my job and could never see myself retiring. I keep up to date with wedding trends while keeping knowledgeable on vintage flare. I have been trained by some of the leading names from coast to coast in all areas of hair.

My goal is to create, for you, the most relaxed setting with your loved ones around you while you feed from the excitement of a new journey at your finger tips.  I will create a personal image for you designed around hair texture, color, facial contour, and theme.  I will continue to keep myself current and educated so that I may do my best to please those whom trust in my abilities.
