Hi! I’m so lucky to do what I love for a living! Since a young age I’ve had a passion for hair and I’ve been very fortunate to have translated this into a rewarding career. It’s not only the creative aspects of my job that I enjoy, but the relationships I develop with my clients. There is nothing more rewarding than the look of joy on the faces of my clients when they love their hair. Most of my clients are regular, long-time customers and have become like family over the years. I’m flattered by the fact that even though some them have moved out of the area they continue to come to me, despite long drives or even plane flights!
Early in my career I was fortunate to be trained at Umberto Beverly Hills. Working there for four years, I started in their apprentice program and moved on to become a stylist. It provided me an amazing foundation of knowledge and technique on which I’ve built my career. Intensive training and weekly classes in cutting, styling and coloring taught me hair is a women’s most versatile accessory. A great haircut and beautiful color is transformational. Now into the 25nd year as a professional stylist, I continue to refine my expertise and stay updated with the latest trends and products. My color of choice is Goldwell as I’ve found it consistently delivers the most vibrant results and I know my clients would agree. Another amazing product that I’ve come to love is the Keratin Complex Smoothing Treatments, what a revolutionary product! The results are truly remarkable and clients have exclaimed that it’s “changed their life” (…well at least their hair!)
While it’s been a pleasure taking care of my Los Angeles clients, I decided to make the move back to my roots (no pun intended;) in the Pacific Northwest. I am thrilled at the opportunity to practice my craft and build my business at Dolce Salon & Spa in Tacoma, WA. I look forward to booking with you soon.
