Hi there! Let me tell you a little bit about myself- I'm a native Portlander who loves living and working in the unique culture of the Pacific Northwest, and I've loved doing hair all my life. After completing my initial training at Portland's Paul Mitchell School in 2015, I further honed my skills with an intensive apprenticeship at one of the city's top salons. I'm passionate about continuing education, and have enjoyed in-depth courses in color, cutting, and styling from top educators with Oribe, Goldwell, Paul Mitchell, Redken, R + Co, and more. I really value collaborating with clients to create cuts and colors that are tailored to their individual style, using my craft to help people look and feel their best. I specialize in creating seamlessly blended balayage and blondes - so much so that I was nicknamed the "Blonde Whisperer" at my previous salon. I also especially enjoy long layered cuts, blunt or classic bobs, and rich, natural looking colors. When I'm not at the salon, I love hanging out at Portland's great neighborhood coffee shops, vintage shopping, and spending time outdoors with my husband Derek and our Border Collie, Ferdie!
