I went to school at Renon's Academy for Hair Seattle (Now known as Paul Mitchell). I studied intensely under Horst Rechelbacher, founder of the Aveda Corporation. I have done platform work for Markham, Sorbie, and Aveda product lines.
I enjoy working on cars, both contemporary and vintage. I am on two bowling leagues (true!). Remodeling our house tends to keep me very busy!!
While I don't have a favorite product per se, I like the versatility of both the Aveda & label.m lines. Aveda appeals to the natural side of me, while the label.m line lends itself to the edgier urban styles.
I don't have a favorite hairstyle. I like the challenges that come from each and truly enjoy the creative process and thought that goes into each and every hairstyle I do.
The thing that I like the best is being a "day maker". I love helping people find the style or color that suits who they are. I find beauty in every person, and strive to listen closely to make each in my chair leave with the look they came in to achieve.
I've been doing hair since 1980. I was educated at Adenes Beauty School. Since leaving school I have continued to progress my abilities by taking Framesi and Aveda classes, as well as frequently go to hair shows. I attended Aveda Congress Festival in 1994. I have done makeup and hair for photo & calendar shoots with Seagals. I have also done makeup and photo shoots with Ginger Boyle & Robert Lydon.
In my free time I enjoy hanging out with my kids and 2 dogs. Beading and Jewelry crafting are 2 of the hobbies I enjoy. In the Winter I love to head up to the mountains for a day of skiing.
Currently my favorite products are label.m Sea Salt Spray and Aveda Light Elements Texturizing Wax.
I love 30's Fingerwaves, soft razor cuts, textured point cutting and slide cutting.
The thing that I enjoy the most is getting the opportunity to be creative with updos and creating texture with cuts and color. I really like to meet the wide array of people that entrust me to take care of their style.
I became a part of the Euphorium team in 2012.
My passion is designing a custom look reflecting your personal style and character. I have knowledge of individual facial shapes and skin tones, and can recommend complimentary colors and cuts for you.
I specialize in balayage, and blending your rooted natural color with a light more brightened rest of your hair.
I will educate you on the styling products that I use for you, and recommend certain styles depending on your daily care routine. I can offer my professional opinion and even let you in on some of the best styling tricks for your texture and density of hair :)
Special event styles have always been a blast for me to do. No two heads of hair are ever the same, so it’s a fun switch-up, to my daily routine. You’re welcome to bring in a picture, if you have something specific in mind, or you can ask for me to get creative and have some fun!
I am never too old, experienced or wise to learn! I am always continuing my education and often take small group classes on new and upcoming trends and techniques.
When I’m not at work, I’m with my kids. I have two young boys who are the light of my life, most of the time (just kidding, haha). We love to adventure on hikes and trails, ride bikes, and swim in our little above ground pool.
