How long have you been styling & cutting hair professionally?
I have been a stylist professionally for over a year and a half now.
When did you first become interested in hair styling?
I have always loved doing my hair and my friend’s hair. However I never considered it as a career.
I was going to be a school teacher. Until after a few major events in my life I was being the "girl who cried beauty school!"
I was never intending on going to beauty school, however God and my family had different plans and about three months after I started using it as my excuse I was enrolled and starting. The 2nd day in I fell in love and I can't imagine doing anything else.
What is your education?
I graduated from Toni & Guy Hair Academy, in Coeur d'Alene, top of my class. I have attended numerous classes and job shadowed with many stylist in the area.
What type of hair do you specialize in?
I mainly do cuts and colors. I am working towards a goal of specializing in "avant-garde" or theatrical hair.
Do you have your own business or do you work in a salon?
I have owned my business and I worked with the lovely ladies at Maxx & Co. Salon for the past year and half.
Will you travel on site for bridal & wedding party hair?
I do travel for bridal and wedding party hair.
Do you offer a package for the bride + all of the bridal party and moms?
It really depends on the wedding. I have limited help so it depends on the wedding as to what I offer. I normally have set prices as to the bride being more and then the bridesmaids less. However depending on the circumstance it varies.
