"I love the creative vibe of our salon and I am blessed to lead the way. I believe that every cut, color and style should bring about the most beautiful YOU! Clients often tell me that they find reasons to go out for the night after getting their hair done because they look and feel too good to simply go home. To help maintain that "professional look", we teach our clients how to recreate the styles we have given them. With a few "tricks of the trade", they are able to achieve that same look or style over and over again."
