I am the owner of The Straight Edge Barbershop and I am from Tahlequah Oklahoma, born and raised right here in our unique awesome town! I have been interested in the hair industry since I was very young. I graduated Tahlequah Beauty College in March 2010. I started my career working in a local beauty salon for 4 years. I loved styling and cutting hair but I realized something just wasn't there. I took a job for my cousin Hal Green, owner of Cowboy Barbershop in January 2014. I found my passion for Barbering as soon as I started there. I worked as a Stylist for Hal Green for 8 months and learned so much! I wanted to further my knowledge in the barbering industry, so I took a chance and opened up the Straight Edge Barbershop September 30, 2014. Opening the Barbershop has been one of the BEST decisions I have EVER made. I specialize in ALL fades, of all different hair types, scissor cuts, women's pixie cuts & undercuts, design's, and pretty much whatever you throw my way! I love a challenging style!
I am originally from Kansas and relocated to Tahlequah in 2016. I have been with The Straight Edge Barbershop since 2016. I have been in this professional industry since 1984, and no that's not a typo! I am a licensed cosmetologist and I love cutting all types of men's, women's, and kids haircuts. If I have to pick a favorite type of haircut, it would be a Classic #1 guard fade and scissors on the top of the hair. It is even better with a manicured beard and mustache. I live on Lake Tenkiller, with my husband Kevin. I love the water, sun, and friends.
I graduated from Stilwell Oklahoma in 2021 and went straight into Cosmetology school. I attended school at Paul Mitchell College in Fayetteville, AR and have been licensed since August 2022. I started working for The Straight Edge Barbershop in August 2022 as the Receptionist. I loved working as the Receptionist, it gave me time to learn from the other barber/stylist's in the shop during my down time, I moved from the receptionist position in February 2023 to my own barber chair in the shop and I couldn't be happier. I love working here and learning about barbering from all the amazing stylists here! I wouldn't say I have a favorite haircut just yet, right now they are all my favorite because they are all a challenge in their own unique way! I'm definitely a family person and in my free time I enjoy spending time with family and friends.
