I am a highly skilled master hair colorist and texture specialist with 17+ years of experience. I started my career at TRIO Salon in the Gold Coast neighborhood of Chicago and was fortunate to learn from some of the top colorists/scientists in the industry. After 11 years with TRIO Salon, I worked at Beauty and Balance Salon in Kenilworth, IL for 6 years. I'm excited for this next step in my career as a studio salon owner in order to have one-on-one quality time with my guests and provide a completely personalized service!

I view hair as a canvas on which to paint a customized palette. My favorite thing to do with hair color is to create a natural look, whether covering grey, highlighting, or balayage. I prefer that others not be able to recognize that my guests have had their hair colored!  My goal is to elevate my guests inside and out. Inner beauty is your job; I do the rest!

"High-end hair without the high-end attitude."
