info:
Education: Aveda Certified Color Educator - Master Stylist. I joined the industry back in 2004, graduating from Blaine School ofCosmetology and continued with an intensive Aveda program at LinearSalon and Spa. Over the years I've completed at least four advanced courses each year and have attended Aveda's Congress and Master Jam along with NAHA to learn the latest trends in the industry. Inspiration: Some of the most recent classes that inspired me have been Geno Chapman withhis amazing cutting skills, Hair Color Magic with Lupe Voss, Be Curlycut and color with Ricardo Dinis and Ian Michael Black.Along with continuously taking classes to expand my knowledge, I am a Certified Color Educator for Aveda trying to inspire those fresh to the industry as well as those who have been dressing hair since I wasin diapers. I have a strong passion for helping others learn and grow. It is my responsibility as a stylist and educator to not only educate fellow stylists, but also my guests. Inspire greatness. Growing up I watched my mom get dolled up for work everyday and loved the idea of playing dress up. As I got older I was the one who always wanted to style everyone's hair for school dances and play with box color any chance I got (it was the 90's so big brassy hair was the look). Working at an Aveda Concept salon during college I knew I hadto truly give it a shot and if it didn't work out I could always finish my degree. I have yet to look back.
