I am a Nashville native with an intense passion for all things hair. I’ve loved hair and makeup since I could talk and decided to pursue my dream job full time as a professional in 2015. My favorite part of this field will always be connecting to clients while they’re in my chair and the bond/trust that is formed while transforming them to feel 100% confident in the way they look. My style is classy yet edgy, and I aim to empower my clients to inspire up and coming hairstylists.
