I have always felt the need to create but it wasn't until I discovered how my hands work with hair that I found my true calling. Some of the best in the industry taught me my craft, and in 2012, I made the move to open my own private Studio.
The foundation of my work is precision haircuts. I always start with the basics whether I create a chic short cut, a bob hairstyle or a hairstyle for longer hair. From here I explore the edges of contrast. The outcome is a perfect balance and shape that is distinct to the individual.
The variety of styles in fashion, hair, in town and out inspire me to create my best haircuts. Hair color intrigues me.
WHAT GETS ME EXCITED
It never feels like work. It's the one thing I do without thinking of anything else. I love listening to my clients; it helps me understand who they are and what makes each one so unique.
IF I WEREN'T WORKING IN HAIRSTYLING
I would be working in the field of Information Technology - creating cool apps for the technologically savvy.
WHEN I'M NOT IN THE STUDIO
I love the adrenaline rush of riding my motorcycle around the streets of Cleveland. The sights, smells and sounds are intoxicating.
Outgoing, perceptive, and when it comes to hair - meticulous.
MY HAIR PHILOSOPHY
It's all about the client. Hair should look great with little effort. A good haircut can adjust from edgy to conservative and evolves gracefully as it grows out. Hair is such an important part of our identify and its cut and color help to convey who we are. Adapting each haircut with respect to hair texture, shape, color as well as facial structure is an important aspect of my technique.
Hard to decide. A cool edgy shoulder-length hairstyle is bold and feminine, a bob is always sleek and sexy, and big curls are simply irresistible. Designing a short hairstyle to a particular face is so much fun too! I just love doing hair!
