I’ve been working as a hairdresser in Austin and Seattle for almost 30 years— making friends and sweeping up several tons of hair in the course of my career!
I studied at the Vidal Sassoon Academy in Toronto and London, specializing in bobs and pixie cuts. Don’t let the grey hair scare you away... I like to think that it translates into lots of experience… and expertise.
Finally, I believe creating relationships is the most important part of any transaction.
I've been doing hair since I was 18. That's almost 38 years, and it includes the punk rock years of cutting my own and my friends’ hair in my bathroom, which horrified my mother, an old school "beautician." In fact, I'm a third-generation stylist!
I've attended a virtual cornucopia of advanced education institutions and programs from the Vidal Sassoon Institute to educator training for Surface Hair Art. Hair is functional art to me! As an artist, hair is my palette, albeit quite a complex palette, in that a client's lifestyle, personality and aesthetic must be taken into consideration. Helping people to feel good about themselves and the way they look makes my day.
