With nearly 20 years in the industry, it has always been my goal to not only perfect the classic hair trends, but to also stay relevant and well educated with amazing inspiration for tomorrow’s trends. I feel it is very important to be diverse in this industry so that each and every individual in my chairs true self is expressed – no matter their hair type or color. I love teaching my clients different ways of styling their own hair with the right products and techniques, because there’s nothing more satisfying than making my guests see what their hair really can do.
Having been a salon owner for the past 15 years, my goal has always been to ensure that every guest feels welcomed, pampered and leaves completely in love with their end result. We do this as a team at Lotus Den, as I also focus on training my stylists in all fields of the industry and empowering them with the tools they need to blossom into their own artistry as a stylist. Staying connected to my community and giving back is another big focus of our salon. I take pride in my passion, community and making a difference in the lives of others.
Over 12 years ago, I began my career with Aveda where I received years of advanced training . I am experienced in all coloring and cutting techniques, but specialize in color and blonding. I’m also trained in Babe tape-in Extensions and Brazilian blowouts. Hair is truly my passion, and I’m unbelievably fortunate to be doing what I love everyday!
I grew up in Oceanside, California as one of six girls. I attended Bellus Academy in Poway, California where I studied hair & make up artistry. Shortly after graduating, I began my career in the beauty industry at Lotus Den Hair Studio and have been a stylist since 2011. I have a passion for using my talents to create color and cuts that help my clients express their personalities and showcase their individualism.
Hair has always been my passion. Both my grandma and great grandma owned salons and a few of my aunts do hair as well. I went to beauty school as soon as I graduated high school and have been doing hair for about 7 years now. I specialize in color and cutting. Balayage is my favorite.I think it’s so important to feel beautiful and I’m so glad I get to do that for woman every day!
I completed Palomar Institute of Cosmetology in 2000. It’s hard to recall all of the different training I’ve received. My biggest and best teacher… two decades of experiments & experience behind the chair! I attend education & hands-on training for new cutting/color techniques at least 4 times a year to keep learning & growing as a stylist. Although I love color, my strength and expertise lies in cutting and hair rehabilitation. I love what I do…listening to my clients needs and making them happy!
