BEHIND THE CHAIR

Working hard for something we love is called passion. Passion is one great force that unleashes creativity, because if you're passionate about something, then you're more willing to take risks.

"A little over six years ago, my beautiful daughter was born and my life was changed for the better. Right then and there, life had a different purpose and I knew I needed something more for us. I was in school to become a teacher at the time, but knew something was missing. With the support of my family, I decided to take a leap of faith and attend cosmetology school. There was this new drive, new passion, new spark in my eyes and nobody could take that away from me. I had the pleasure of working with amazing teachers who prepared and motivated me to become everything I am today. I got my first salon job at a well known, high end salon & spa starting as a hair assistant, working my way up to hair artist. I learned so many things as a stylist and always continue my education through all and any classes. I realized I had an underlying passion for curly hair when I attended a Deva Curl certification class. Not only did I become certified, I applied through the company and became a curl coach educator, where I am able to travel and spread my love and knowledge for curly hair. I have met so many amazing people through this journey, and have built such an amazing relationship with my clients. It is because of my wonderful clients and the support of my family and fiance, that I am able to make my dream a reality and finally become a salon owner! I have so many people to thank and so many things to be grateful for, including my wonderful team of girls joining me on this journey. My goal is to motivate, inspire and empower the community through this amazing opportunity that I was given. Let's make today beautiful!"

"My passion for hair started with a curling iron and my grandfather's puffy, snow white hair. I would spend hours repeating the same curls all over his head until I felt they were perfect. And so it blossomed into who I am today: completely obsessed with this amazing career of mine. Although I enjoy all aspects of hair, color has captured my heart. It allows me to use the most creativity and truly be myself. My favorite thing about my career has been the opportunity to meet so many different personality types and my ability to make their lives a little more unique. my daily goal is to make each client feel comfortable while building a relationship of trust. At the end of the day, I thank God for my sweet life filled with puppy kisses from my cocker spaniel, Radlee and complete, loving support from my fiance. Now let's make you feel beautiful! As always, do what you love."

"When I first graduated from high school, I had no idea what I really wanted to do. First, I started classes at the local community collage nursing program because I love caring for people. After a couple of semesters, I felt like I still wasn't where I was suppose to be. I then decided on working towards a business degree, but there was still this underlying passion inside. I started selling Mary Kay and fell in love with making people feel beautiful and more confident. It didn't take long to realize that the beauty industry was made for me! I took a leap of faith and enrolled in cosmetology school which lead me to a career path that I truly love and enjoy everyday. I am married to my bestfriend and my biggest supporter. I have 2 fur babies and a beautiful baby girl. Come on in and let me work my hair magic!"

"My love for the beauty industry started at a very young age. Both of my great aunts were cosmetologists and I loved watching them work with their clients. As I got older, I developed a passion for doing makeup as well. While in high school I assisted at a local salon and did freelance makeup for weddings. After high school, I immediately started college and was planning on becoming a lawyer. About a year after beginning college, I came to the realization that my true passion was doing hair and makeup and making people feel beautiful. I studied hair at St. Pierre Academy while also working at Mac cosmetics. Working at MAC was extremely inspiring for me, I was able to get certified and learn different types of makeup including bridal and backstage makeup. During cosmetology school I learned a lot, but my absolute favorite was color, especially blondes and balayge. After graduating from cosmetology school, I continued expanding my education in the color world by taking advanced color classes to expand my skills. Today I absolutely love working with my clients to achieve their beauty goals and I hope to see you in my chair!
