Since beginning my voyage into the beauty industry over 20 years ago, I’ve developed a passion for the creative and comprehensive process that goes into providing a mutually and deeply satisfying experience for my clients and myself. I am a Santa Cruz native, in tune with the lifestyles and needs of our community. I’m a foodie, a music nut, a beach and ocean lover, mother of one beautiful child and dog, a funny warm spirit and committed professional stylist.
I specialize in corrective, natural and creative color and curly hair cutting and care, as well as expert brow shaping and tinting. My goal is to provide a current flattering style, custom designed to your hair type, features and sensibilities. Educating my clients on proper technique, use of products and appropriate tools assures that they will be able to recreate and maintain their investment in their beautiful haircut or color.
Continuing to hone my craft with advanced education, as well as a peer based teaching approach has provided me with a wonderful array of techniques to custom tailor each service I offer to my guests. I feel wonderful about earning the distinction of a skilled stylist, not only for my expert technique, but also for my relaxed and always humorous, in-depth consultations.
I ask that all new clients start by booking a complimentary 15-minute consultation with me to establish a connection and begin a beautiful journey together.
