Making a personal connection with each client. I LOVE figuring out a look that suits them perfectly and teaching them how to recreate their signature look at home.

 

Fav song? 

I am Wu-Tang Clan obsessed and sing too loud when 90's country is on, I can listen to Florence and the Machine on repeat, I'd kill to eat lunch with Stevie Nicks and I know every word to every song that Sam Cooke ever wrote so... Let's just say I couldn't possibly choose one!

IGK Direct Flight Matcha Shampoo, it's great on day 1 for volume, day 2 as a style refresh. It is perfect for extensions and holds my California beachy waves.

Chasing after my two perfect littles, aimlessly roaming through Target, or singing along to EVERY song on the radio.
