I grew up in the NL-S area most my life and now live in New London. Growing up, I was such a Tom-Boy(still kinda am!) so its kinda funny that I have such a passion for hair color(balayage is my FAVE!) and hair extensions(have you seen our invisible hand tied wefts!?). I am certified in the IBE(Invisible Bead Extension) method(check out IBE on Instagram!) I love creating the best look for my guests and solving any hair issues they may have while giving the confidence they deserve.
On the weekends you can find me chaperoning our local downhill ski club in the winter, Spring and Fall my family and I love camping up north and riding our atv's on the trail systems. Summertime, sweet summertime, is devoted to friends, family and pontooning all summer long.
I love to bake and eat allllll the goodies, I live off Chai Latte's, read books and dream up big plans. My mind is always working and you never know what it will come up with next.
I am currently accepting new clients and I would love to meet you!
