Besides having that amount of time behind the chair under my belt, I also take great pride in both my communication skills and my keen eye for detail.

Also, I am a cut and color specialist, so whether you've had a bad experience and need help getting your great hair back, or you're just looking for something new, I can certainly help you out!

As a Hampton Roads local who has lived here off and on my whole life, I always knew the beauty industry was for me. I've always had an artistic take to beauty. My passion lies in customized cuts, color, and make up to suit every individual personality. After getting my license four years ago, I discovered my passion for this industry. I'm constantly driven to learn the latest trends and techniques, especially with blonde and vivid color styles.

I have been a stylist in the industry for over 20 years, and I've lived in Virginia Beach for fifteen. Hair is my passion and I absolutely love that its my job to put my own personal touch to it. I excel at hair color. Whether its chocolaty brunettes or icy blondes to pop vibrant colors. Always viewing hair as an art form, I enjoy creating with color and sculpting hair with my shears to compliment a clients personality. When a client walks in with a general vision, its my job to maximize exactly what they want that my creativity has to offer.
