One of my greatest passions in life is the art of transforming hair. I attended Douglas J Aveda Institute, from there I began my career in the beauty industry. I have been a licensed hair stylist for over 17 years, and the owner of Salon 219 since 2013. My love for the beauty industry started when I was a little girl and continues to amaze me. I spend most of my time behind the chair with Long hair and curly hair. I spend the rest of my time behind the chair doing Hair extensions and Wedding In addition to my passions, I am also certified in Brazilian Blowouts, Laced Hair Extensions and Hothead extensions. I like to consider myself as a geek in the hair world, as I get a thrill from the continuous education of the breakdown of the chemical makeup of color and products. I believe this has been a major key to my success in achieving my clients desired results. As a stylist I make sure to give my clients my undivided attention and ensure that they leave feeling beautiful.
I have been a licensed professional cosmetologist for over 30 years. I love my career field because it allows me to be creative and it is ever-changing and challenges me to continuously learn new styles and techniques. Favorite services to perform are natural colors, and working with naturally curly hair. I find that my greatest strength is working on curly hair because I too have curly hair, so I know the effort it takes to tame those curls! I strive to provide an environment where my clients can be themselves and feel welcomed. I devote my time to my clients, to make sure they leave with the style they came to get, and nothing less.
Being a hairstylist is who I am, who I was meant to be. Beginning my career over 30 years ago in the suburbs of Los Angeles, life and love eventually moved me to Michigan where I was able to continue my love for the hair world. I have had extensive training in the latest hair trends, along with classes for advanced cuts, colors, and styles. I take every opportunity I get to further my education on all the current styles in the beauty industry. I specialize in natural curly hair and perms and my favorite hair to work on is thick, textured hair! My one goal as a stylist is to achieve my clients desired look, and inspire them. If my client leaves my chair happy and positive, then know I have done my job!
