Give us a brief introduction to who you are and to your business (what you do):
I’m from Kansas City, Missouri, I have resided at the Lake of the Ozarks. I started my career in Kansas City, MO at Paris II of Cosmetology, where i specialized in hair, nails, and make-up. I have apprenticed under two very well known stylists before i decided to take the journey on my own. Apprenticing under these two women I have learned my specialty, texturizing hair & coloring. (Deciding moment: why I chose hair…)
Doing hair has been a passion of mine since I was 7 years old. Growing up with many stylists in the family and being the guinea pig you learn to love the industry. I have great passion in doing hair, and I make sure I keep up on continued education to meet every clients needs; I am certified in the habitextensionmethod, which is a natural beaded row method of Hair Extensions, and have also had continued education with celebrity stylist Ryan Weeden (founder and educator of Masters of Balayage)& Chrissy Rasmussen (founder and educator of haircation). I believe ongoing education is key to success and really listening to your clients! I look forward to meeting you!!
Tell us about how your business got started:
I’ve worked in a few salons and they just never were really a great fit for me. I’ve always had a vision, and instead of searching for the right salon home I decide to create my own. I created a cozy & trendy serene escape for my clients to come relax and leave feeling refreshed and beautiful.
Why do you do what you do?
I do what I do because I love to create art. Everyone’s head is like a blank canvas for me. Instead of drawing i like to paint. The best feeling in the world is when you turn your clients around and their faces light up with confidence because they love their hair! That’s why I do what I do.
What are some things that help you stand out as a business?
My creativity and passion. I am always seeking to grow myself and my business to always stay on top of the latest trends. I love to give the best of the best to my clients.
What do you envision for the future of your business?
I envision myself to be the best stylist in the area, because of the quality and care that I give to my clients hair.
What is something that inspires you each day in your work?
What inspires me the most is that everyday is different. I may be always painting and creating art, but everyone’s hair and hair goals is completely different! So I’ve always gotta be on my toes for the next challenge!
What are some great things about the local area?
