I have been a hairstylist specializing in cutting since 1997.
I teach people about their face shape and craft true custom haircuts designed specifically for them.
I grew up in New York City. I’m a little bit country and a little bit rock & roll. I’ve lived on both coasts and in the Midwest.
In my travels, I’ve learned about different lifestyles and cultures. I work with a variety of hair textures, face shapes, and bone structures.
I’m known for my custom consultations and dry cutting.
Dry cutting allows me to feel the texture and weight of your hair. It also helps to give a more balanced and precise haircut. When your hair is dry, I can see exactly how it will frame your beautiful face, enhance your unique features, and show off those gorgeous eyes – giving you a true custom haircut.
I believe in kindness, transparency, truth, and the ability to nurture. I have a passion for education. I love to teach but will always be a student. I’m so grateful to be part of I believe is the best industry in the world.
I live for good conversation (and skincare) while providing a positive, safe, and stress-free salon environment.
Schedule a haircut with me. You’ll look and feel your best.
See you soon!
