I have always been obsessed with hair and makeup and grew up dreaming of becoming a stylist. As a young child I loved sitting on the floor watching my mom paint her face and put hot rollers in her hair. As a teen I started meticulously curling and backcombing my older sister’s hair and bangs to gravity-defying-heights before school each day. At the age of twenty-five I finally enrolled in Cosmetology School and began the journey of doing hair and makeup professionally.
For over a decade plus, I’ve enjoyed being on set with incredible teams making gorgeous looks for beauty shots, editorial, advertising, and marketing. It’s been amazing to take my love of salon work and hair education to set with me every day where I can showcase various hair confections; from soft beach waves, to intricate and complex up-styles, to soft romantic curls, to purposefully messy perfection.
After all these years I still thrill at the transformative power that hair and makeup can achieve for a client. I continue to work in a salon and enjoy furthering my education by taking classes for cutting, color, and styling. Amazing hair and makeup can take you to another time period, disguise unwanted blemishes, enhance our favorite qualities, and alter our moods for the better.
