What influenced you to become a hair stylist? Nothing could influence you more than receiving your first perm at age 4, or rockin' a full-on mullet with obviously crooked bangs at age 5! My mom attended cosmetology school when I was in preschool, and I got to be her living, breathing mannequin. It's been completely amazing watching the hair industry, as well as the ever-evolving styles and trends transform over the decades, and I am still so excited to be a part it!
What does Pure Salon mean to you? Pure Salon is my home away from home, and we have grown into a large family over the years! I feel so fortunate that i was able to see the salon develop from a poster-board with pictures on it, to what it has become now, and it has been such an exciting & fun journey. Pure embodies the ideal salon experience; refreshing and enjoyable -- a simple luxury. We all get so caught up in daily life, I love giving my clients the opportunity to slow down and enjoy a bit of indulgence. My goal is for every client to walk out the door looking, and feeling, amazing. We truly believe that beauty on the inside is just as important as the outside, and all of us love helping our clients feel both!
