About Me

I started this blog because I believe everyone can love their hair & look amazing even when you’re not fresh out of the salon! I’ve noticed that many of my first time clients have misleading or false information about hair care or beauty do’s and don’ts. That’s why I strive to give you real information from a professional point of view. I will do my best to answer all of your beauty questions as well as provide several tools & tips on looking your best.

I’ve been in the beauty industry since 2007 and dreamed of a career in cosmetology from the time I could brush my own hair.

I love creating styles for my clients and inspiring others in the industry!
I own a  salon in Gloucester, VA and enjoy helping people with their everyday hair dilemmas!

    Hello! I found your blog while researching cosmetology blogs for a college class of mine and I just wanted to let you know that I LOVE your blog! I’m a cosmetologist myself (since 2008) and I think it’s great that you provide all this information to your clients and everyone. I also think you are super talented! Your updos are AMAZING – they were always my enemy. I look forward to reading more from you!

      I went to Paul Mitchell, and although they have a great cutting system, it’s not my favorite. Paul Mitchell is great for learning the basics, but if you’re already good there, then you may want to try out a RUSK cutting class. RUSK cutting techniques are awesome and really changed the way I cut hair!

    Hi! I recently came across your website and LOVE it! You are so knowledgeable!!
    I do not use much product or heat on my hair, and I have wavy hair. I am switching over to Paul Mitchell shampoo and conditioner, as I have been using Suave Professionals for the longest, but do you have any suggestions for a weekly hair mask or other product just to keep my hair healthy and protected?

    I hope to hear from you!

    Thanks so much!

      So sorry for the delay, somehow your comment went to my spam folder!

      You’re going to love Paul Mitchell! It’s an extensive line, so make sure you use the products that will work best with your hair. I can help you with that if you need it!
