Stylist, established 2003
EDUCATION: I grew up thumbing through pages of 80s & 90s hairstyling magazines and sweeping up after haircuts in the Seattle salon of my honorary aunt. In high school I practiced the Gwyneth Paltrow circa ‘Emma’ updo on friends, and carried that experimentation into my twenties with styling for many friends’ weddings. Despite having this exposure to and working knowledge of hairstyling, and being surrounded by hairstylists in my close circle of friends and family members, it wasn’t until 2015 that I decided to make this lifelong fascination a career. I graduated cosmetology school in early 2017 with honors from Gene Juarez Academy, and shortly after completed a high level advanced apprenticeship with some of Seattle’s top hairstylists. I have also received training from educators at Oribe in New York, Bumble & Bumble, Redken, Keune, Goldwell, and Davines, and had the opportunity to guest assist for one of LA’s top haircutting specialists. I’m always looking for more classes to take and ways to educate myself!
