I began my focus on curly hair after years in the industry, and realizing my love for it and the need for it. Over 65% of the world's population has textured hair, yet cutting curly hair is still not taught in beauty schools.
I incorporate various methods based on your unique texture, style, and needs. I believe in enhancing curly hair instead of "fixing" or "taming" it. The European beauty standard in our culture has always made me angry. People are waking up. Cosmetologists learn on a straight haired European model. That doesn't work for everyone, and has caused a lot of damage. As more and more hairstylists learn how to take care of every texture properly, more people will love the hair they were born with.
I approach every client service like a collaborative art project. I believe in keeping up with what is going on in the fashion world and on the street, and getting all of the advanced education I can.
