“Everyone deserves to feel beautiful. My approach to hair is simple-it’s about understanding each client’s hair type and lifestyle, then giving them a customized modern look that they can recreate in front of their own bathroom mirror. I truly believe that everyone can feel beautiful and it’s my job to show them the way.”
