“As a woman with naturally curly hair I understand the struggle to find someone who is knowledgeable about the unique needs of curls.  I pride myself in reflective listening and educating my clients about the whys of their hair and the best possible options to maintain beautiful, healthy hair.  In addition to being a Ouidad Curly Hair Expert, I specialize in color, highlighting, traditional hair-cutting, bridal updos, special event styling, and makeup. My favorite part about this industry is the knowledge that I am a part of making someone look and, more importantly, feel fantastic.
