TRAVELING HAIR STYLIST

MY SALON OR YOUR LOCATION

My journey into cosmetology began in the late middle school years. Like many middle schoolers, I played around with hair color and creating wedding hair. I knew that I wanted to do hair, but I thought I would wait until I retired.

How It Began

My journey into cosmetology began in the late middle school years. Like many middle schoolers, I played around with hair color and creating wedding hair. I knew that I wanted to do hair, but I thought I would wait until I retired. 

In Tenth Grade I for the second time witnessed why I was not going to become a Nurse & deliver babies... much less think about going to College. At that moment of highschool, my journey became REAL LOST for about 4 years with hair always being somewhere inside my brain functions. I then at the age of 20, decided its officially time to go to Cosmetology School when my mom came to terms that College was not for me. Plus I grew up seeing my dad as an Entrepreneur and knew the 9am-5pm life, working behind a cubicle, limited PTO time and working for someone else.. was not my " dream job"  Being a "Creative Brain" my whole life, school just wasn't my thing... it became harder for me, because of my A.D.D & Language Deficit.

At 21 years of age, I ended up attending AVEDA Institute in Chapel Hill. This ended up being the best decision for my career. If I went right out of high school, I wouldn't have gained the Retail Stores knowledge, Adverts, Customer Service, and Leadership skills. At that time is when I realized, “Hair is my art that I get paid for.” After graduating and working at an AVEDA Salon in Raleigh, I decided at 23 years of age that its time to move away and start my life & career in Charlotte. Its been the best decision yet!

The styles I like to create are cutting edge professional hairstyles that are easy hairstyles to maintain.. All the way to vivid colors with lots of Dimension. Since beauty school, I’ve gravitated towards Men’s Hairstyles and Keratin Treatment. I am a Keune Hair Color Specialist, and I prefer to use sulfate-, paraben-, and gluten-free products. This is one way I try to stay clear of harsh chemicals that we inhale and put in & on our bodies.

I take into consideration your face shape, skin tone, & lifestyle when creating your unique hairstyle. If you are looking for a change, the new era Charlottean, or have a  destination wedding on the other side of the world or inside the City of Charlotte. I am here to seek out hair as I am your hair doctor! I continuously emerge myself into learning new techniques & trends inside my industry. When first seeking hair info, as a professional I always think about keeping the hair at its natural healthy state.
