I am passionate about creating beauty that doesn’t harm our bodies, the planet, or the lives of animals. Helping people feel special is why I do what I do every day.
My specialties include creating any haircut that will fall naturally and grow out gracefully, and works with the natural texture of the hair. Curly or straight, my styles require very little work by my clients at home. I am strong in women’s and men’s haircutting, straight razor haircutting and dry cutting. I also specialize in coloring the hair using many techniques, including balayage and handpainting, foilage, traditional foil work, or a combination of all. My work contains accent elements, whether in color or shape, that trick the eye to create interesting effects. I also love styling the hair for any occasion!
I'm fascinated by the science behind hair color because I am a little bit nerdy! The interest in how hair color works lead me to study and become a color educator. This love of continuing my education and my desire to share what I learn allows me to provide the best experience I can for my clients.
I specialize in color corrections and funky fashion shades. If you have a color problem or are looking for a drastic color change, I will be honest with you about the possibilities and come up with the best color plan for you. I have a knack for updos and special event styling, and am also proficient in women’s and men’s haircutting. I will take the time to give you a haircut that meets your daily styling needs, and teach you styling tricks to help you between your salon services.
I've been a hairstylist for 4 years now. I completed hair school at Paul Mitchell in Murfreeesboro, TN (where I was born and raised). I moved to Chattanooga almost 4 years ago and couldn't be happier. When I was 16, I started working at the front desk of a hair salon and it didn't take me long to realize that I wanted a career in hairdressing. I love being creative, meeting amazing people, and making men and women feel confident about themselves. A few of my specialties include VIVID colors, blondes, and knowing how to cut textured (curly) hair. I spend a lot of my continuing education perfecting these specialties.
I aim to connect with people in order to make sure I hear exactly what they are really looking for.
Education and experience in any industry is paramount. I am lucky that I have had over 6 years of experience, including an apprenticeship under several talented stylists, and an abundance of classes that focus on technique and product knowledge.
My strengths are in my ability to listen and my desire to fully understand what you would like at every appointment. I have had good feedback with many clients who have fine hair, prefer blonde color, or have thick or course/curly hair. I’m also great with preteens or teenagers, both male and female.
