I am so excited to welcome you and tell you a little about myself!
I have been a hairdresser in the eclectic Lower Haight of San Francisco for the last 10 years. I recently relocated and am now independent an stylist at Studio J salon in Benicia! I have a passion for textured cuts and am a blonding specialist. I love to create effortless, sophisticated hair.
In my career, I have pursued extensive training in Sassoon, Bumble and bumble, and Wella cutting and coloring techniques. I was a technical color specialist for Wella, the world's #1 professional color company, where I traveled to salons around Northern California teaching the latest in color. When I left my previous salon (to have a baby!) I was the education director, where I organized the apprentice training program and taught color and cutting classes.
My proudest moment was in 2016, when I won the national division of the prestigious American Crew All Star Challenge in men's styling. I was flown to Paris, France to represent our country and compete with 13 other international hairdressers. Competition and editorial work has been and is an ongoing passion of mine. Don't be surprised if I ask to take photos of our visit!
To me, being a hairstylist is of course about the hair. But mostly it's the people. It's about you. It's self-expression. It's art. It's a relationship. It's personal. Because it's not just Hair.
I look forward to meeting you!
