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.

"I have always had a passion for beauty and hair care, especially natural curls since I can relate myself.  I have expanded my knowledge in curls over the last ten years by continuing education, hands on, and working for Deva Curl as a Curl Coach educating other professionals.  Opening Embellish Hair Studio in 2018 was a dream come true. I hope to continue to motivate, inspire and empower the community through this amazing opportunity that I was given. Although I take much pride in my art and salon, my greatest achievement in life was becoming a mother and wife. I am blessed for my family and friends and so honored to have amazing clients like YOU. Let's make today beautiful!"

"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 college nursing program because I love caring for people. After a couple of semesters, I felt like I still wasn't where I was supposed 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 every day.  I have a fur baby and three beautiful baby girls. Come on in and let me work my hair magic!"

"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 my kitty, Pike and soon to be husband, Ryan. Always thankful for the loving support from family. Now let's make you feel beautiful! As always, do what you love."

"I have been in the field of hair for over 10 years. I am extremely excited to join Embellish. Working as a hairstylist is not just a job, but a way to help define personality and improve self-love. I started my career in Franklin County, VA, and traveled to Silverdale, Washington, then San Diego, California, then back to Virginia. While living in San Diego, I was able to use my profession to help those less fortunate in finding employment by offering free haircuts at a local church every Saturday morning. This helped me understand the importance of my work, and how something as simple as a haircut could change a person's life. Three years ago, I decided to try a different career path to see if I was missing something since hair was all I had known. Now, I am back doing what I love and thrilled to see what the future holds. I cannot wait to meet you!"
