What are your “specialities”?
I have been creating beautiful and unique hairstyles in the DFW area for 8 years. I specialize in color, precision haircuts, and hair extensions. I am a licensed hair extensionist with SHE Socap USA Hair Extensions. I have training by Wella Professionals on Color Theory. I’ve taught classes on Ombre and Balayage highlighting techniques at Regency Cosmetology School and cutting classes with the Regis Co. I would say my favorite thing to do hairwise is to customize a haircut to match a unique color. I enjoy any major change created by color and hair extensions.
How/When did you know being a hairstylist was your destiny?
My job is my passion. I love getting to meet new people and helping them to feel like their most beautiful self. I love getting to meet different people from different walks of life.
Where do you find your creative inspiration as a stylist?
I get most of my inspiration from street style. I like the idea of DIY style turned Couture.

Chrystopher Benson. I love the way he takes fantasy colors and places them in very natural looking patterns.
