Services: Deva Curl Cut, men’s and women’s hair cutting, color services, brow waxing
Why I became a stylist: I have always loved beauty and art. I grew up loving makeup and constantly changing my hair color (driving my mom crazy with color stains all over the bathroom), all while studying photography, graphic design and drawing/painting. I wanted to pursue art school after high school, but beauty school was a more feasible and practical option. It was absolutely the right decision for me. I love bonding with my clients and making them feel beautiful.
Salon Strength: I love working with curly hair. I have naturally curly hair and I, as have many of my curly clients, have had some bad haircuts for my hair type. I love giving life to curly hair and educating clients on how to love and care for their hair. I also love hair color services (balayage, pintura, foiling) and shaping eyebrows.
What makes a great stylist-client relationship: I think when there is a reciprocity in a stylist-client relationship, only the best can come of it. I appreciate when my clients have clear references and/or boundaries for what they like and don’t like. I also appreciate a good level of trust. I also believe an important aspect of the salon experience is to give clients a warm and relaxing experience so they truly feel the self-care of it all.
What are your passions outside the salon: I am the oldest of seven kids, and I’m very close with my siblings and incredible mom. I love beauty and fashion so I love keeping up with those worlds, especially now that brands have prioritized inclusivity; it’s like a form of activism to support these types of brands. I love to travel, eat, and drink. Some of my favorite places I’ve been to include Puerto Rico, New Orleans, and New Zealand. I’ve been lucky enough to travel with siblings, close friends, and my fiancé. We also do a lot of cooking at home and lots (too much) of eating out.
What you might not know about me: I can do some killer impressions. I’m also a sensitive soul and low key think I’m some sort of therapist.
Celebrity I’d love to work with: I love Solange’s hair and personal style. She is unafraid to try new things all while embracing her natural texture.
Haircare product I can’t live without: I love my Deva Curl Super Cream and B’leave In.
