Hair cutting is truly an art. Everyone has a different head shape, texture, and hairline. Everyone also has different ides of what they want; this where choosing someone with a lot of experience is best. I really tune in to my clients. I look at you as a whole - Your lifestyle, the time you are willing to invest in styling your hair, your face shape, neck, shoulders, and the texture of your hair including sparse areas and cowlicks.I take the time to look at pictures with my clients to customize the the perfect cut. I am a precision cutter: my haircuts have strong shaves and layers are fluid, not choppy or bulky. I will not cut your hair in five minutes, I take my true time taking small sections to ensure the best possible cut. I don't rely on texture to shape the hair but rather use it to support the shape. I use several techniques including thinning, razoring, slicing, and point cutting. I will then style the hair smooth so I can check the cut and add little accents that really make a good haircut into an amazing one. One last thing, I am a long hair girl. It is my solemn vow to never cut your hair too short. I always show you how much I am going to cut before I snip at all so we are all in agreement!

I will trim your facial hair, eyebrows, and clean up you neck and upper back hair. I can also show you how to style your hair. I take personal pride in the fact that my guys all tell me they get an extra week or two out of my cuts. This is because I pay special attention to that bulky area on the top and sides of your head, which a lot of stylists leave too long. Your fresh cut will look great and will continue to look good as it grows out. I also promise not to cut way up into your hairline! A natural hair line looks best!

Do you want to be blond? Blond hair can be very beautiful. However, if not done right, blonding can be very damaging and expensive. When we have consultation, I will bring to the table many options for the health, affordability, and sustainability of your blond hair dreams. I will explain options and create a schedule you can afford to maintain. For example, if you are set on highlights we can schedule glazes or breaks in between highlights with a partials or face framing highlights. This preserves your hair from overlapping or becoming too blond. It also makes it more affordable and sustainable for you while reducing unnecessary stress to your hair. Also another alternative to highlights is doing an ombre or balyage ombre which allows for larger gap time in between touch ups. This is very low maintenance and can be maintained with a few face framing highlights or and base breaking glazes.
If you are already a blond naturally we can discuss using highlift color instead of lightener. This is much more gentle on your hair and gives a softer look.
Do you want platinum blond? I am meticulous about not overlapping to ensure no breakage. If this is your desire I will put you on a schedule of pre-booked appointments. It is important you come in every 3-4 weeks to eliminate bands of gold. We can discusss Olaplex to keep your hair healthy. We will make sure that platinum or solid blond hair is within your budget and that you have time to sustain it with monthly appointments. Your blond will be babied I ensure you. With rebonders like Olaplex and my post color sealers and complimentary deep restorative conditioning treatments. Your hair will feel amazing and if you are able to commit to the maintenance your blond will always look fresh and bright!
For natural looking hair that is full of vibrancy there is no better way to achieve the perfect look than professionally hand painted highlights. Blending blonde in a soft manner that melt our of your natural hair color, or add them to a change of color or after you have hidden the grays, for an eye-catching and modern way to have your hair highlighted. Balayage is also amazingly low maintenance so you won't need to come every 2 months for a touch up like you do with regular highlights. Balayage can be touched up with face framing highlights periodically but typically a full balayage can last over 6 months. You can also discuss with me about more trendy looks like a balayage ombre or color melts!
