I have been doing hair since 1995. I specialize in natural looking color (even for men!) long hair and cuts that are low maintenance. I love to educate my clients on how to recreate the fresh out of the salon look at home. I do a lot of my cutting on dry hair to see what the hair’s density and texture truly are. I have an extensive knowledge of hair products and the ingredients used and also how they impact ourselves and the environment.
My goal is to make the experience as fast and as close to painless as possible. From my first eyebrow I was sold. I specialize in custom eyebrows and the ten minute brazilian. Sculpting and sharpening one's eyebrow to make the eye stand out that much more is what I love to do. Custom tinting your brows and lashes can be an essential part of this process. I've always said " You can have the most beautiful eyes, but without perfect brows to frame them, they are wasted." Since the beginning it has been a dream of mine to work for myself at what I love to do. I look forward to making you a smoother you!!
stylist/colorist/treatment specialist "It's beauty that captures your eye, personality which captures your heart..."
I believe that in order to have great hair, it has to be healthy hair. I am a hair and scalp treatment specialist and can help treat many hair and scalp issues - from dry scalp to promoting hair growth! I am most well known for my relaxing scalp massages and you will never leave without a lesson on how to take care of your locks at home! I have a knack for long layered haircuts and what I call "invisible haircuts" for those of you who want a trim without any disappearing length. My styling inspiration comes from taking vintage looks and making them modern - whether it’s fingerwaves or rock & roll haircuts, I have a knack for making it look hip and new!
From an early age, the beauty industry has sparked a deep interest within me. I have worked within all facets of the industry, including fashion, makeup and hair styling. I started my styling career at a Paul Mitchell partner school in San Francisco, and have been cutting and coloring hair in Marin since 2009. My clientele will tell you that I am always eager to please, while continually providing suggestions on how to stay modern, feminine, and fabulous! My expertise in color ranges from the trendy ombre and flamboyage, to your basic blonding or root touchup. I am known as the “blowout extraordinaire," and specialize in event styling and makeup. Let me make you sparkle on your special day! I see everyone that sits in my chair as an opportunity to exude beauty and style.

I was trained, and worked as a stylist in London's fashionable West End. Since transplanting to California, however, my work has evolved from trendy to a more personalized approach, focusing on each client's personality and lifestyle, blending this with present trends to create a look that is individual and current. To put it bluntly, you (your hair)should not look like you are wearing someone else's hat - no matter how beautiful and famous that person may be. There is nothing cooler than being yourself, but a little edge doesn't hurt. We are all beings of value - let's find out how to present that to the world, together! A colleague of mine once said, "They say this is a stress-free business, but you just try making a one-of-a-kind, handmade product, using nothing but human hair, on top of the head of your boss." It's an interesting way of looking at things, but in a way each client of mine implicitly, by making the appointment with me, demands no less.
