I was born in Anchorage AK!, that’s right, Alaska! Growing up, I always loved watching my sister (who is 16 years my senior) cut and style hair! I would say that was my first introduction. After that I began mimicking my sister, and ultimately practicing my new hobby/craft on my Barbies, babydolls, and even children that I babysat.
In 2000 I relocated to Raleigh, and later, graduated from the newly appointed #1 HBCU in the nation, North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University! AGGIE PRIDE!!!!
I became a natural haircare specialist in 2012, and began working part-time at the former Masterminds Design Studio. A few years later, I began working full-time, and even went back to school to gain my cosmetology license.
I am now a Licensed Cosmetologist & Natural Hair Care Specialist, and I have a certification for microblading. I am committed to helping my clients achieve and maintain healthy hair.
I strive to stay on top of all the new cutting edge techniques and beauty trends in order to provide the best possible services for all current and potential clientele.
One of my greatest joys, is meeting new people, making introductions and being able to create meaningful connections. Oh, and I LOVE food!
My mantra: “Although I possess creativity, I don’t create the beauty you possess, I just enhance what is already yours!”
