How long have you been doing hair? 

It’s going on 12 years! It’s wild how fast time flies when you’re having fun! 

What is your favorite part about the stylist-client relationship? 

Many of my clients and I have surpassed the client/stylist relationship. I am so happy to say I have true friendships and I am excited to see every single person that sits in my chair and to learn about their life. I love you all with my whole heart, I am truly so lucky. 

Is there a specific hair type or service that speaks to you?

I specialize in curly hair, and it brings me so much happiness to have clients embrace their natural texture, whether it is with a great cut for them, proper product knowledge and how to use it for their own hair! Even though curly hair is a true passion of mine, I absolutely love all hair textures and am excited to see what we can create together! 

Is there a hobby/interest you have outside of the salon? 

Is Netflix a hobby? I recently have gotten into cross stitching, and I really love to cook. Occasionally I’ll try to play the guitar, but I can’t say I’m any good, but it’s fun while I try. 

Do you have any long-term goals or dreams?

I truly want to have a hobby farm one day. Alpacas, goats, chickens, you name it and I want it. 

What is your favourite thing about Sapphire?

We are one big giant family. Everyone is supported by everyone and I have never truly felt like myself more than I do at The Sapphire. I wake up on the wrong side of the bed and after working with these yahoos I’ll be skipping out the door. It’s really a magical place.
