Fusing style and personality through the creation of a hair style that incorporates all of a persons unique attributes is what I try to do for every person I work with. With over 13 years in the industry, I have worked to hone my craft, working with clients to awaken the true person they desire to be, be it rock star, runway model, or stay-at-home mom. My love for this industry comes from being able to be a artist, while hearing my clients express their amazement at the beauty and ease of their new look.
A flash decision to leave art school in Chicago led me across the street to a salon to ask for a job, not knowing at the time that I would find my calling. I apprenticed under Marianne Strokirk, of Marianne Strokirk Salons, in Chicago before relocating to Nashville. I began at Trim Classic Barber & Legendary Beauty in August of 2003. I joined Eye Candy Salon in July of 2005 after being woo’d because of the clientele I had created. After seven years it was time to move on and that move lead me to Parlour 3.
I enjoy working with a variety of clients from business professionals to country music legends, fashion designers and photographers. I have had the pleasure of styling some of Nashville’s finest artists as well as styled hair for editorial photo shoots, music videos and have contributed to local and national magazines as well fashion shows.
