Excerpt from Dallas Voyage Magazine July 16, 2019
When I was about eight years old, my version of fun was sweeping hair off the floor for my mom’s hairstylist. I remember the unique smell of her salon and it always drew me inside. I would always admire the hair once she was finished and the look of happiness each of her guests felt when they left her chair. It truly is a special feeling when you rise from your hairstylist’s chair feeling refreshed and looking your best. With that memory in the back of my mind, that to me is what I strive to give to each of my guests when they leave the salon.
Before going into the world of beauty, I pursued another dream of mine and played softball in college. Despite sports being one of my passions, I can remember learning to do a single braid right down the middle of my hair in my college dorm room, it wasn’t perfect, but I remember being so proud of myself. That’s when I truly felt the urge to pursue cosmetology. After two years in college, I toured Paul Mitchell the School. I knew this is where I needed to be, and enrolled, and that is where my hair journey began. The culture and foundation of hair that I gained from Paul Mitchell molded me into the stylist I am today. From the Elite Phase II program to traveling to Las Vegas for advanced cutting & coloring classes in my early years, I was fully engulfed and determined to be the best for all of my clients.
I have been doing hair for almost seven years, specializing in balayage, bridal/event hairstyling, and hair extensions. As hair has changed throughout the years, this propelled me into finding another passion of learning to do hair extensions. I knew I wanted to expand my brand by being certified in all methods, from clip-ins tape-in to i-tip (microbeads) to the new hand-tied method. I think it is important to be knowledgeable in all aspects of the hair world.
What truly differentiates me from others, is that I have learned much more than just technique, but how to provide the most value for each of my guests. When making a change, such as their hair, I have learned that what every guest wants is to be heard and I consider this to be the most important component for the salon experience. I believe that because I take the time to listen and care, this is why my guests trust my professional opinion to accomplish their hair dreams.
